Baby Safety Pressure Gates
Stair gates must be wall mounted with custom hardware for your child’s utmost safety. Adults should never climb over gates and older children should not swing on open gate as this type of excessive pressure can and will rip gate from wall. More injuries are reported from parents taking a shortcut over the gate. Taking care of little ones is a hard enough job – let us help you pick the right well functioning gate so YOU don’t get injured! Keep stair gates closed at all times when small children are in the home. We get sidetracked and forget easily so just CLOSE it.

Pressure gates – A Common Misnomer:
It’s a common misnomer that pressure gates don’t cause wall damage. They DO CAUSE DAMAGE to plaster and/or drywall and most often require patching. Pressure gates often loosen when used in high traffic areas and need to be retightened causing excessive pressure to walls resulting in cracking and/or wall indentation. Our advice is forgo the frustration of having to adjust the loose pressure gate every week and use a wall mounted gate instead. The hole you will have to patch with a wall mounted gate will most likely be smaller than the damage a pressure gate will cause.
