Why You Should Set Up A Safety Baby/Child Gate Inside Your Home

Is your infant crawling around the house and nearby stairs? This is a dangerous problem that forces parents to set up child safety gates for their home. One of the main advantages of a child safety gate is keeping your baby or young child safe from potential accidents and setting borders around your home for your children.

It’s important to keep some locations off limits for children and a safety gate is a great way to begin teaching them to areas of your home. Safety gates are easy to set up and simple to take down when your kids are sleeping at night.

A fall from the top of a staircase can lead to severe injuries and even death when it concerns young children.  Not all gates are made the same so it's important to look for a sturdy gate that will fit your home’s needs.

There are typically two kinds of gates you will discover when shopping. The first kind of gate uses hardware to mount the gate. This kind of gate is protected by the frame on the walls. This is an excellent gate to utilize at the top of stairways. The factor is that they are bolted to the frame of the inside of the wall and supply additional stability for your child. This gate won't budge and will ensure that young children will not roll down the stairs.

About Hard Mounted Safety Gates

Where To Install

At the top of the stairs. Hardware-mounted gates are the only safe option for stairwells. Most will swing open just one way, although you can decide which way you want a gate to swing. At the top of the stairs, we suggest installing the child safety gate to swing far or away from the stairs (not over them) for maximum safety.

How To Install

This kind of gate needs screws for installation. To install, you drill holes in a door frame or into the studs behind a wall and connect the safety gate with brackets and screws.  Although no gate can be ensured to keep a child from running around, if correctly installed, hardware-mounted gates are the most secure option for parents looking to keep their child safe.
