Product Description

Built of sturdy, durable wood construction, the Top of Stairs Walk-Thru is ideal for top of stairs location, but can also be the solution for bottom of stairs, and both standard and wide width (up to 48 inches) hallways, door openings, kitchens, and playrooms.

What makes this gate unique for Top of Stair applications is the no-trip design, meaning there isn't a threshold bar to step over. Additionally, the gate has an optional swing stop mechanism; it prevents swing-out over the top of stairs keeping the gate door always within reach.

As a hardware mount gate, it also makes an exceptional "anywhere" gate for active toddlers, children, and pets. The dual-open latch is easy to open, but child-proof. The door swings in both directions, making for easy pass-thru in high traffic areas of the home. The extra height on the gate (32 inches) makes it ergonomic to use day in and day out, while deterring children from climbing the gate.

When not in use, the Top of Stairs Walk-Thru gate can rest open, flat against a wall or the gate can be easily removed from the brackets and stored.

Installation is easy. Tools required to install this gate include: Electric Drill, 1/8 inches (3mm) drill bit, Phillips screwdriver and pencil.

  • Approved for use at Top of Stairs with a No-trip Design!

  • One-Hand Release, Two-way Door Swing is convenient for high traffic areas.

  • 32 inches tall and can be installed up to 3 inches above the floor for 35 inches of protection

  • Expands to cover standard and wide openings from 30 inches - 48 inches

  • Dark Espresso Stain compliments your home decor

  • Four-Point Bracket hardware mount is easy to install and removed when not in use

  • JPMA Certified

    I bought this gate for the quality and the value. This gate is a very good quality gate at a reasonable price. We were looking for a thin yet sturdy gate that would keep my toddler from trying to go up the stair case. There is not much available wall at the bottom of the staircase due to some uneven molding in which to install the gate so it had to be thin yet strong in order to fit the flat part of the wall. This gate fit wonderful in our little space almost like it was there when the house was first built. My son cannot open it or climb over it or get anywhere near the staircase. It was easy to install as we looked at the instruction manual as well as the online video on this website. The gate fit well, is very tight, and does not move at all once installed. When the door locks in place on the baby gate, it is locked. A child or toddler is not going to be able to open it nor push it down. We are very pleased with this purchase and would recommend this product to our friends.

    I was hoping this would be a walk through gate without screwing into the wall. Because of that feature it wasn't as helpful to us. However, we are still propping in the doorway to keep kids out of one room or another. I do love the color & material seems quite durable (judging by the amount of times it gets knocked over!)

      Installed at top of open stairs to the family room below. The quality and color are perfect for me. It opens and closes easily with nothing to step over and trip on. Would highly recommend this gate to anyone that does not care that it attaches to your walls. I feel more comfortable knowing that it is not tension mounted.

                I love this gate! This gate is what I buy each time we move and we need a gate for the top of the stairs. It is easy to install and easy to use. The pressure mount gates for me don't work because they leave round marks in your wood/wall because of the pressure. It isn't cheap material. I've bought four of these so far.

                  I love how this gate blends into the rest of my house with its dark color it looks grown up like not so childish. How ever I hate that you have to drill a hole into the wall. It took me a couple days to figure out how to open it with only one hand but i am a pro know and my 2 year old is not which says a lot.

                      the gate can not be attached at the top of the stairs even though that is what it is for. Have not been able to use it. Shipping took 11 days. Service in the store was horrible and rude. Left and came back later and finally got someone to help me. Very disappointing

                      The product was very easy to put together and assemble. It looks nice in the home and is extra tall for added safety. However, I would prefer a gate that is made of a better material like wood or metal. The plastic feels flimsy and makes me a little concerned that it could break.

                        I liked this gate very well. We do not have stairs, but we use the gate in a hallway. The handle isn't super easy to open, which is great because my toddlers cannot open it. I had tried a different style of gate in the hallway before, and my toddler would just climb over it. This one is taller and more sturdy. It does need to be installed in a stud, or solid place since it screws into the wall unlike the accordion style gates. Finding the right spot to install it and drill holes in the wall was the most difficult thing for me.

                        We used to use a tall tension mount gate at the top of our stairs. Our little ones are not so little any more, but we have a lot of little visitors -- enough to warrant a gate. There wasn't much of a consistent need for this until we took the side off of the crib. Then our 3 year old developed a bad habit of night time wandering. We would find her downstairs at 3 a.m. playing! Our 7 y/o would periodically sleepwalk as well. We needed a more practical and STURDY alternative. This gate was great. Installation was simple. All the hardware was included and the template worked pefectly. I was a little worried because of the "catwalk" style of our stairway. But, installing it was a piece of cake. The gate was a little difficult to master with one hand at first, but the kids can't get it open yet and that is PERFECT. After a week of constant usage, I have this gate in stride. I can open it with little effort and I LOVE IT. The main complaint I have is the color. I would love to get it in white, to blend in with the walls. But, Expresso is not a huge problem and for the sense of security it provides I would take it in any color! Also, my cats hate it. They haven't figured out how to jump over it from the lower step yet. That too will come in time.
