Default Baby Gate

I am looking for a gate for the top of the stairs, it must be mountable. I had a really hard time finding one to fit in the first place and then now a year later it has been recalled and the hardware they sent to repair it does not work at the top of my stairs. The top of my stairs is a little bit wider than your average baby gate goes. I looked on babies r us and all they have are pressure gates. Any ideas? Price is not a factor.

I have "Safety 1st" gates on my stairs. They expand to be quite wide, and they are mountable OR pressure-fitted.

Miss Joy,
The gate looks great, I think I will get one. I have a few strong 2 year olds and on the website it says it holds 200lbs, have you found it to be sturdy against strong boys? I just am a safety nut!

I don't know about 200lbs but I have a 15 months old that weighs about 35 and it holds up against him leaning on it. I love it! I can't remember who on the forum told me about it but it's a blessing.

That was me, I was wondering how you made out! I was about to recommend them again because I love mine so much
