About Gatekeepers

Owner and founder of Gatekeepers Safety Gates, Tom Mitchell is proud to offer unique, well-designed baby gates, pet gates and safety gates to make your life easier and safer.

It all started when his then-one-year-old son fell through a baby gate that was installed at the top of his staircase. Fortunately he was ok, but it prompted Tom to seriously look for a new way to keep his child safe near the stairs.

With the help of an accomplished woodworker, Tom was able to create a new, stronger baby gate for the top of his staircase. A tremendous amount of time and effort went into getting it right, and the end-result was certainly worth it. He now had a gate that was not only strong and safe, but was also absolutely beautiful.

As it turned out, many others needed gates like this for a variety of reasons. Not only do households with small children need safety gates, but also people who care for aging individuals who may wander or lose their footing easily. Or how about those who have loved ones with special needs, or pets that need to be confined to certain areas of the home?

Because Tom and his family had an increased sense of security once their custom safety gates were installed, they wanted others to feel the same way. They had a hunch they were onto something and it didn't take long before Gatekeepers was born!

Today, Gatekeepers remains a family-owned and operated business that's steadily expanding to meet the needs of families and businesses throughout the United States and Canada. Our representatives understand and share our steadfast mission: to keep loved ones safe and secure.
