Pressure Or Screw Fitted Stair Gates?

Once children recognise the delight of their hands and feet, it can be extremely difficult to stop them from accessing dangerous places, such as stairs, a large point of curiosity for older babies and young children. While it is impossible for parents to monitor their children 24/7, it can be reassuring that safety products such as stair gates can greatly help with restricting access to dangerous places and are keeping their child safe. While there are so many types available, it is important to find the right one that does the trick for you.


With expert knowledge in ‘child safety gates’ we have listened to our customers over the years and devised a unique STAIR GATE FINDER to enable you to find a safety gate that fits your space perfectly, blends with your home décor and works perfectly in keeping your child safe in the home.


Where can I find the Safetots Stair Gate finder?


Select ‘STAIR GATES’ on the Safetots home page, this will take you to the Safetots range of safety gates.  The Safetots stair gate finder is featured within this page.


There are primarily two types of safety gates: pressure fitted and screw fitted gates. Pressure fitted gates are for those who are very conscious about their home decor. Pressure fitted stair gates don’t require any screws to be fitted and will not leave any marks on your walls, they are simply held by pressure. They can be easily moved away from place to place. These gates are perfect to be used between rooms, but are not recommended for the top of stairwells.


Pressure fitted gates also feature a bottom bar, which can become a tripping hazard. Screw fitted gates can be securely mounted with screws. When properly mounted, these stair gates are very secure and are advised for use at the top of stairwells. These gates don’t present a tripping hazard.

Types Of Safety Stair Gate


Pressure fit stair gates sit within a fixed “u” shaped frame which is held in place by pressure at four points. Extensions are available for wider doorways. Stair gates can be made of wood or metal. These safety gates are easy to install and don’t leave holes behind as there is no need to drill or screw them to the wall. Additional features such as alarms to signal that a gate hasn’t been shut can also be included.


Screw fit stair gates are fixed to the wall with metal screws. It is a good idea to measure the space where you want to install your gate carefully before buying as you may need extensions. One of the benefits of screw fit gates is that they are very strong and robust. There is no rail at the bottom and no trip hazard.


Retractable stair gates have a mesh barrier that retracts on itself keeping it compact when not in use. This not only means they can help save space but will also fit a wide range of openings both outdoors and indoors. The two sets of mounting brackets will allow you to place the retractable stair gate almost anywhere.
