No baby gate? No problem!

John Stamos came up with an inventive solution while staying in during the coronavirus pandemic. He used the iconic Full House couch as a makeshift baby safety gate!

"Baby safety gate or one of the most iconic couches in pop TV history? You make the call," the actor wrote on Instagram on March 31.

Fans immediately recognized the iconic sofa from the beloved '90s television show, where John played Jesse Katsopolis. Of course, the show also featured Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen as Michelle Tanner, Bob Saget as Danny Tanner, Candace Cameron Bure as D.J. Tanner and Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner.

In the photo, the plaid couch is in fact positioned in front of the opening to the stairs in the hopes it will keep children safe.

The blue and yellow plaid sofa was a fixture on Full House. The Tanner family had some great bonding moments while sitting on the comfy piece!

Fans took to the comments to ask whether it is the exact couch from Full House. They were also curious about whether John has any other props from the show's set.

"What else did you take from the set (please tell me it’s the framed bunny)," said one commenter.

Another brought up an interesting point, "I always wondered why there was such a small couch for a big family."

Some fans revealed they're watching Full House, along with its reboot Fuller House, while self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic. Seeing the iconic plaid couch is bringing a bright spot to their days!

John and his family have been staying in and self-isolating in an attempt to flatten the curve of COVID-19.

At the end of March, he shared an adorable video featuring himself, his wife Caitlin McHugh and their son, Billy Stamos, 1, singing "It’s a Small World."

He captioned the post, "'It's a Small World' family Sing-A-Long turned into a 'Small Disaster!' #bedjams #quarantine #stayhome"
