    Stair Gate FAQs

    To fit a baby gate, follow these steps:

    1. Measure the Opening: Measure the width of the doorway or area where you plan to install the gate.
    2. Choose the Right Gate: Select a baby gate suitable for the width measured and the type of opening (e.g., pressure-mounted for doorways, hardware-mounted for stairs).
    3. Assemble the Gate: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to assemble the gate, if necessary.
    4. Install the Gate:
    • Pressure-Mounted Gate: Place the gate in the opening, adjust the width by tightening the tension knobs or screws until it is secure. Ensure it is snug and does not move when pushed.
    • Hardware-Mounted Gate: Mark and drill holes as per the gate’s template. Screw the mounting brackets into the wall or door frame. Attach the gate to the brackets ensuring it swings freely and locks securely.
    1. Test the Gate: Make sure your stairgate is firmly in place and the latch mechanism works properly. It should withstand pressure without coming loose.

    Always refer to the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer for best results.

    To open a baby gate:

    1. Identify the Lock Mechanism: Most baby gates have a latch or locking mechanism that prevents accidental opening by children.
    2. Engage the Release: Typically, you need to press a button, slide a latch, or lift a handle. Some gates may require two simultaneous actions for added safety.
    3. Open the Gate: Once the latch is released, swing or lift the gate open, depending on its design.

    Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions, as the exact method can vary between different gate models.

    You should stop using a stair gate when your child is around 2 years old, or when they are capable of climbing over or opening the gate themselves. This typically occurs between ages 2 and 3. It's important to assess your child's physical abilities and safety risks to determine the appropriate time to remove the gate. Always ensure other safety measures are in place as your child gains more independence.

    For the top of the stairs, you need a hardware-mounted stair gate. These gates are securely fastened to the walls or banisters, providing a strong and stable barrier that cannot be easily dislodged. Avoid pressure-mounted gates for the top of stairs, as they can be pushed out of place, posing a safety hazard. Look for a gate that swings open away from the stairs and has a reliable locking mechanism. Always follow the manufacturer's installation instructions to ensure maximum safety.
