DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY PURPOSE: To enable classroom doors to be left open while preventing children with cognitive or other disabilities from leaving rooms without assistance. Made of pine for light weight, the gate is designed to fit the width of the door frame. The frame is made of pine lumber and vertical pine dowelling fills the center. The dowels are placed closely enough together to prevent children from getting their heads caught. Lift in/lift out hinge fittings are attached to the door frame and the top and bottom of the gate so that the gate can be dropped into place when needed and lifted out when not needed. A bolt latch is attached to the outside of the gate to prevent children from opening it while still being accessible to the teacher. SKILLS REQUIRED: Carpentry. TITLE: Classroom Gate.
