We have an 8-month-old and we're looking for some way to close off a bunk so that she's free to move around and sleep in it but so there's no worry of her getting (falling) out. Looking for ideas, since I would think someone else has done what we're looking to do.

I grabbed a photo from the interwebs to show the style of bunk.

I was wondering what you may have come up with to solve your issue. We are currently in the same boat. 7 month old who could be mobile any day! Thanks!

I built a gate out of wood and used some locking hardware to attach it to the walls. It's solid but easy to remove when needed. I don't have any pictures on hand but I'll snap and upload some soon.

So here's what I came up with. I built a wood gate that sits just inside the "doorway" and allows the curtain to be used. The latches are from the hardware store. The wall portion of the latch is attached to the wall via extra strong Velcro, The bottom layer of Velcro is glued to the wall. The other half of the Velcro is glued to the latch, so when the latch isn't needed all you can take it off the wall and all that remiains is an unobtrusive piece of Velcro. The gate can be removed quickly when you need access.

Our daughter is very strong for her age and couldn't move this, so it worked well.

The pictures are rotated for some reason. The slats in the door are vertical, as are the latches.
