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.
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.
All our tall baby gates are made from durable and strong metal to help you create an effective barrier in your home and give you peace of mind once your little one starts to crawl. This gives them the freedom to explore while also staying safe.

What is the tallest baby gate available?
Safetots standard stair gates have a height of around 75cm, while our high stair gates can be approximately 100cm tall and are available in pressure fitting or screw fitting options. The tallest stair gate is 105cm and is ideal for parents looking to create a safe room divide between pets and children.
Extra tall baby gates are popular with families who own particularly large dogs. The additional height provides extra safety for young children, keeping them safe from larger, stronger pets.
Where can I put an extra tall stair gate?
Extra tall baby gates can be installed in any doorway, hallway, or stairwell. They provide the same security as a standard size safety gate, however the additional height may be preferred for various reasons.
Pressure fitting and screw fitting extra tall baby gates are suitable for all doorways in the home and can be used on internal and external doorways. Extra tall screw fitted safety gates are recommended for the top of a flight of stairs, as they provide the safest and most secure option being installed with screws. However, installing pressure fitted gates at the top of stairs is not recommended and we suggest pressure fit gates as an option in doorways and hallways only.
Extra tall pressure fitted pet gates are installed by applying pressure to the four spindles at all four corners of the gate. Should any pressure be released from the gate, a child's safety and the safety of other family members may be compromised. Extra tall pressure fitted gates are also designed within a U-frame and feature a potentially hazardous trip bar once opened. All extra tall pressure fitted stair gates feature a trip bar and are not recommended for the top of the stairs. Extra tall screw fitted gates provide the most suitable strong, safe, secure divide for the top of any flight of stairs.
Although not recommended, if a pressure fitted gate is the only option for the top of the stairs (for example, if you live in rented accommodation are unable to screw into walls or bannisters), an extra tall pressure fitted gate is more suitable than a standard-size pressure fitted gate. Extra tall baby gates are the best option if fitted on the second step, beneath the top stair. The additional height of an extra tall baby gate provides a safer solution in keeping children safe at the top of the stairs and if installed as recommended (to the second stair), the trip bar will be safely tucked between the two steps.
Are extra tall safety gates suitable for stairs?
Screw fitting extra tall safety gates are recommended for the top of a flight of stairs. An extra tall screw fit gate provides the ultimate security for keeping children safe upstairs. Alternatively, a pressure fit gate isn’t recommended for use on the stairs. This is because the gate is installed by applying pressure to the four spindles at each corner of the gate and should any pressure be released, safety may be compromised — particularly at the top of a flight of stairs.
Extra tall pressure fitted gates are designed within a U-frame and feature a trip bar which can be potentially hazardous if installed at the top of the stairs. Extra tall pressure fitted gates and extra tall screw fitting gates are both suitable, safe options for the bottom of the stairs.
Extra tall or standard height stair gates should never be fitted within the actual stairwell. They are recommended only for the top and bottom of the stairs. Although not recommended, if an extra tall pressure fitted gate is the only solution for the top of the stairs, then installation to the second from top step is advised. Stair gates should not be fitted below the second to top step.
All of our stair gates, pet gates, and room dividers adhere to British and European standards of safety, so you can be confident that these tall stair gates are suitable for dogs and babies.
