Designed to prevent babies and toddlers from falling down the stairs or climbing the staircase, screw fit stair gates are one of the most secure stair gates available from Safetots and are recommended, especially for use at the top of the stairs. They are also suitable for other areas of the home such as doorways and provide a permanent barrier to help keep you baby or toddler from danger.
Screw fit safety gates are fixed straight into the wall with a wall mounting kit and metal screws which provide a safety barrier fixed at a permanent position. They are easy to install but will require some drilling. Make sure you read all installation and mounting instructions carefully before starting.
In addition to being strong and sturdy, screw fit safety gates have the added advantage of having no bottom rail which removes the risk of tripping which can sometimes be found with other safety gates. Some models can also be removed from the mounting and placed elsewhere providing there is another wall mounting system in place.
Before purchasing your screw fit baby gate, it is important to check you have the correct measurements. You may need to buy baby gate extensions if you have a wider than usual door frame or staircase, as screw fit stair gates are not extendable. There is a wide range of stair gates extensions available at Safetots.
There is a range of screw fit baby gates to choose from, available in a range of materials including wood, metal plastic or mesh with additional features such as extra tall screw fit stair gates, narrow width screw fit stair gates and two-way opening gates.
Although not recommended, if you live in rented accommodation, or do not want to put holes in your walls, you could consider placing a pressure fit stair gate on the second stair down which will prevent tripping.
Don’t buy any stair gates including screw fit stair gates second hand as they may not comply with current EN 1930:2011 regulations. All Safetots safety and stair gates comply with current regulations, if you need any help and advice on selecting the best stair gate for you or information on installation, then please contact us.
