Many homes have staircases that aren't bordered by a wall. In this case, the Y spindle aids installation of pressure mounted gates to these types of staircases. The Y spindle wraps around a baluster to provide a secure installation.
On the Gateway, use Y spindles only on the hinge side of the gate. No more than 2 per gate can be used.
On the Center Gateway models, the Y spindle can be used on either side of the gate. However, they must be used on the same side. No more than 2 per gate can be used.
For installation of a pressure-mounted gate on a staircase with balusters on both sides, you will need to use a Kidco Gate Installation Kit.
