The Regalo Extra-Tall Top of Stairs Gate is one of the best gates in its category. It employs a unique patented mounting design, making it one of the few top of stairs baby gates available that don’t require hardware mounting. This mounting system also makes this a suitable baby gate for bottom of stairs. It’s also expandable for openings between 32 and 53 inches wide. The brilliant design doesn’t just stop at the unique wood-saving bannister mounting solution. This gate also features a spectacular handle that can be operated one-handed. By far the biggest strength of this non-hardware mounted gate is the lack of support bar at the bottom. This means that it doesn’t pose a dangerous tripping hazard if you’re walking through the gate with your hands full. This makes it the perfect top of stairs baby gate.
This quality product is well suited to parents living in a multi-storey building as well as pet owners looking to restrict the movement of their animals. The design makes it safe for both you and your child.
Strong Steel Build
For your top of stairs baby gate, you want strength and security. The rigid steel used in creating this baby gate is extremely helpful in making sure that the gate is safe to be used at the top of the stairs. With this sturdy construction, there’s a much lower risk of failure under stress which is extremely valuable in keeping your children safe.
Easy Unlock Walk Through Design
Given that this product is designed to be used as a baby gate for stairs, you’re going to be putting it in a high traffic area. Having a gate that can be operated with one hand is quite useful if you’re going to be carrying things through it frequently. This design also lacks a support bar at the base due to its patented mounting solution, so no risk of tripping as you climb down the stairs.
This safety gate mounts on a set of brackets. These brackets are separate from the actual gate itself, so you can unmount the gate from the brackets and store it, leaving the brackets in place for remounting later.
Adjustable Gate Width
Unlike many baby gates, this design has its adjustable width on the gate, rather than additional extension kits that need to be installed to the side. This means that the gate is the full width of the stairway.
- Adjustable gate width means that the gate is as wide as your stairway
- Easy unlock walk through design means that it’s no hinderance in a high traffic corridor
- Simple unmounting solution makes sure that you can take the gate away completely and replace it with little effort
- The unusual mounting solution doesn’t work for unusual bannisters
