Stairgates??

Postby alemum » Mon May 17, 2010 2:13 pm

Big move this friday, as the house is private rent dont really want to to ley my OH drill holes in the wall again for the starigates we already have, (hes not the best at DIY although he dose try)
We have got one stairgate that is like a pressure thing to close but you have to clime over it, I knwo you can get ones where use the prssure thing to close them and then they have a gate in the middle to open. Can anyone recommend these and do they work well?
We also need to fence of half the back garden as there is a drop halfway down, but again without to much drilling and digging.

my gates are pressure fitted and work fine.
and you can get long mesh 'gates' for driveways, that might work in your garden

We have this one too, you still have to step over the base bit though. I don't think there are any pressure fit ones where you don't have to :-?

You have to step over all the pressure fit ones.pressure fit gates aren't recommended for the tops of stairs for safety reasons.

We have a pressure fit one as well, unfortunately its at the top of the stairs right now which isnt great as its easily tripped over! Probably safer without it :roll: I dont think your landlord can stop you using the drill-in gates as its for safety reasons...we just dont have a drill!

I've never used a drill-in one so cant really comment on the difference in use, but our gate was just a cheapish one and its easy to use. In fact, if it doesnt close easily then usually the screw-rings need adjusted!

You can get pressure fit ones that open. They pressure fit on both sides to the walls and then there is the gate that opens in the centre, like this one:

You do have a bar at floor level that you need to step over but you don;t have to step over the entire gate!
