And they're enormous by the way.
One is shorter than I am, but the rest dwarf me. Two of them are arriving today and are probably about 8' long. I'll have to measure. And take pictures. I know nobody really cares, but it'll be fun for me.

By the way, I feel like baby gates are something that people keep for a long time after having kids. As if some day, for some reason, I'll need to section off a portion of the house for some reason. Odd.
