At the bottom of the stairs we can use either wall mounted or pressure mounted gates. The main appeal of Pressure Mounted Gates is that there is no need to drill them onto your wall, door frame or banister. Instead, the gates are fitted in place under pressure. That means you avoid drilling holes in the wall, post or frame. This type of gate is well suited for use at the foot of a staircase, doorways and openings up to 6 feet.
