About this deal

Lots of people use safety gates as dog gates for stairs and to keep pets in or out of certain rooms. Pressure-fit gates are very safe for use at the bottom of a staircase or in a doorway, as long as they’re installed correctly and regularly tightened as necessary. While her baby-proofing days are now behind her, Lucy used (and reviewed) several stair gates with her two children when they were young, including both metal and retractable designs.

However, they are generally not safe for use at the top of a staircase. This is for two main reasons.The Safety 1st Wall Fix Extending Metal Gate is easy to adjust to fit securely at the top of any staircase, and because you don’t need to use any additional extenders, the full width of the gate will open, leaving no obstruction that could cause you to trip. Which is the best safety gate to buy? We've split our recommendations into the different types of stair gate you can buy, so you can find one that's best suited for your house and needs. We think the BabyDan Guard Me Auto Retractable Satefy Guard gate is the best stair gate available to buy right now. It scored the highest in our product testing and has received many glowing recommendations in the Mumsnet Talk forums. The retractable feature offers a neat option for leaving the gate folded away when not in use and it has a simple opening mechanism. About the author

Commonly used for stairs and doorways, screw fitted stair gates are easy to install but must be fixed to a wall. They are ideal for the top of the stairs and do not have a bottom bar which can often be a tripping hazard. If you have a wider space, then stair gate extensions are available. The BabyDan Guard Me is the best stair gate to buy overall, but the retractable screen does have a bit of give to it, and it needs to be installed at least 9cm from the top of the staircase. Ideally, you want your stair gate to be at least 75cm (30 inches) in height. Extra-tall models are available, and range in sizes from 1m (39 inches) and beyond. Where to buy a stair gate Extra tall baby gates are suitable for use almost anywhere in the home and are ideal for parents whose children have learned to climb or are budding escape artists. Extra tall safety gates are also perfect for pets, particularly larger dogs, preventing them from jumping over. They are especially suited for use at the top of the stairs where falling is a hazard. While there's no statutory requirement to comply, most commercially sold stair gates will have been tested to meet safety standards BS EN1930:2011.The first thing you should decide is where the gate is going to go. If you are looking for a baby gate for stairs , Safetots strongly recommend that you choose a screw fitted stair gate rather than a pressure fitted option. This is because a screw fitted gate does not have a horizontal bar along the base, which could present a potential trip hazard. An opening mechanism that can be operated with one hand, so that you can safely use the gate while carrying a baby or toddler Safetots has both pressure fitting and screw fit stair gates available so you can install your extra tall safety gate almost anywhere in your home. We also have a range of extra tall stair gate extensions allowing you to fit your gate into wider doorframes or more unusual openings. If your staircase or doorway is narrow but you’d still like the safety of a tall stair gate, we have a selection of tall narrow gates too. Unlike screw fitting stair gates that need to be fitted into the wall, pressure stair gates are mounted by putting pressure on the corners. They're incredibly easy to install and won't leave marks on your walls — perfect if you're living in rented accommodation or do not want to drill holes in your walls. A pressure fit stair gate will typically open outwards and is fitted securely to a doorframe using adjustable pressure pads at four corners of the gate, with the door supported by a U-shaped frame. This means they don't require any additional tools or equipment to install. Once we’d selected the 14 best stair gates for our shortlist, our tester, Katja Lakha, installed them one at a time in her home. Katja is a busy mum with three children (girls aged one and four, and a seven-year-old boy), so each gate was put through its paces. The gates were tested for at least one to two weeks each in busy areas of Katja’s home.
