Q:

Can anyone recommend a good baby gate for stairs?

Hi everyone,

I am in search of a good baby gate for my stairs at home. I have a very active and curious 10-month-old who loves to crawl up and down the stairs and I want to keep her safe, especially when I need to step away for a few minutes.

I am looking for something that is easy to install and can be securely attached to the wall. It should also be sturdy enough to withstand any attempts at climbing or pushing from my little one.

I have been looking at some options online but I am unsure which one would be the best fit for my needs. Any recommendations or personal experiences with specific brands would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help!

Hello there,

We also faced the same issue when our little one started crawling around the house. We went with the Regalo Easy Step Walk Thru Gate and we've been very happy with it.

It was easy to assemble and install, and we like that it doesn't require any extra hardware to attach it to the wall. It's also adjustable, so we were able to fit it perfectly to our stairway.

One of the best features is that it has a walk-through door with a safety lock. This makes it incredibly easy for us to get through without having to remove the entire gate. Additionally, the gate has a sturdy metal construction that can prevent our little one from pushing it down.

Overall, we're quite pleased with this gate and have recommended it to a few of our friends.

Hi there,

I have a 1-year-old who also loves to explore the stairs, so I completely understand your need for a sturdy baby gate. We ended up purchasing the North States Supergate Easy-Close Gate and it has been fantastic. It was simple to install and it securely locks into place with a dual locking system, so we never have to worry about it accidentally opening. It also has a feature where the gate swings open in either direction, which has been so convenient for us.

We've had it for a few months now and it has held up really well. It's also easy to clean if it gets dirty from little hands touching it.

I highly recommend this gate if you're looking for something reliable and easy to use.

Hello everyone,

After searching for a baby gate for our stairs, we decided to purchase the Carlson Extra Tall Walk Through Pet Gate with Small Pet Door. This gate is marketed as a pet gate, but it works equally well as a baby gate.

One of the best things about this gate is the small pet door on the bottom. This feature has come in handy for our cat to easily move around the house, while still keeping our little one safe from the stairs.

The gate is very easy to install, and it doesn’t require any extra hardware to attach it to the wall. The height of the gate is adjustable, so it can work for various opening sizes.

The gate's walk-through design makes it very convenient to use. You don't have to step over the gate every time you move between floors, which can sometimes be tricky, especially if you have your hands full with the baby.

Overall, we're very happy with our purchase of the Carlson Extra Tall Walk Through Pet Gate with Small Pet Door. It has provided us peace of mind that our little one will be safe around the stairs.

Hello guys,

We recently bought the Safety 1st Easy Install Extra Tall and Wide Gate for our home and so far, it's been great. This gate is perfect for open floor plans as it is much wider than regular baby gates. It is also taller, so it can provide better security from the top of the stairs.

Compared to other gates, it is relatively easy to install. We were able to set it up in less than 30 minutes, although it did require an extra drill bit.

The auto-close feature of the gate is also a great addition as you don’t have to worry about closing it behind you. The gate locks by swinging to a magnetic latch, which we found to be very secure.

Overall, we are happy with the Safety 1st gate and it provides an excellent solution for wider staircases and open-plan spaces.

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased the Evenflo Easy Walk Thru Top of Stairs Gate to keep my 8-month-old safe and it’s been wonderful. The gate is very well built with great attention given to details. The lever-style handle provides a smooth one-touch release that is easy to open with one hand, which is perfect when you have your hands full. The safety lock on the gate also makes it virtually impossible for our little one to get through the gate.

This gate was a bit tricky regarding installation, but with some time, we were able to set it up securely. It can be mounted off the wall, expanding up to 42" that is perfect for our house's staircase.

In general, I think this is an excellent product and will recommend this Evenflo gate to anyone who wants a high-quality, reliable product that will keep their little ones safe.

The gate itself is made of high-quality materials and feels very durable. It can withstand a fair amount of pushing and pulling from our little one and still stay in place. The auto-close feature is great, as it ensures that the gate always stays closed and you don't have to worry about your child getting up the stairs.

Installation was relatively straightforward. The gate includes multiple mounting options, which makes it easy to fit it to a variety of openings. It also opens from both sides, which can be convenient when you want to move around the house.

Overall, we are very happy with our purchase and would definitely recommend the Dreambaby Liberty Extra Tall Auto Close Gate to anyone looking for a solid, functional and stylish baby gate.

Hello,

I was also in search of a good baby gate for stairs and we tried multiple brands in order to find a solution that works well for us. The best gate for us was the Munchkin Easy Close XL Metal Baby Gate.

It is adjustable in width and its double-locking system provides maximum safety. One of the best features is that it comes with an optional third lock at the bottom, so you don’t have to worry about your little one lifting the gate from the bottom.

The gate also swings open in either direction, so it can work in different configurations. It is made of durable steel construction, which prevents the gate from bending or warping over time.

The gate is easy to install and it is effortless to switch between floors. Overall, we highly recommend the Munchkin Easy Close XL Metal Baby Gate to anyone who is looking for a durable and reliable option for their stairs.
