There is widespread resistance by many to drill into staircase newel posts in order to properly mount a stairway safety gate. Kidco has long identified this resistance, and after a period of development, is now pleased to offer a 'no-drill' model Stairway Gate Installation Kit. The kit contains two "clamp" assemblies, one square, and one with inserts to accommodate curved or round upper post millwork. A smooth hardwood board is included for mounting to the "clamps'. The gate is then mounted to this board, and the installation is then secure without the need to drill or use screws driven into the staircase millwork.
The No Drill Gate Installation Kit is for use at the top or bottom of stairs, with hardware or pressure mounted gates. They mount to round and/or square posts. The assemblies fit posts 2 1/2" to 3 5/8" wide.
