Child safety gates/stair gates

Looking to get a couple of stair gates now our little one is on the move yet every where i look they only have them to fit up to 81 cm yet our gaps are 95 and 85 cm, mothercare brochure mentions extensions yet it doesn't have them in stock, can anyone recommend anywhere to get stair gates that are wider than the standard ones?

thanks in advance

I know I have posted this story before...............but when my son was at that age we didnt need to buy those safety gates because he was terrified of balloons..................so we had a balloon stuck to the video.............the bottom of the stairs and the top.............and anywhere else we didnt want him to go near!!!!! saved us a fortune!!

:lol: wouldn't work for us though our baby loves balloons, in fact it's got to the stage where every time he goes to his nana he has to have a "boooon"

Dude, don't bother getting the ones that require extensions, they will cost you a fortune.

We got one made by Babydan, it reaches up to 110cm wide - there are others out there.

This is similar to it, although mine has a wood finish.

We had this problem with some extra-extra wide spaces we needed blocking off. We got a play den thingy, from ToysRUs, that can be made into a variety of shapes as a whole room divider. We ended up having to put the stair gates no where near the stairs, but in places that would still prevent the children from getting to the stairs independantly. If you know what I mean!

dont buy ones that have a bar along the bottom people dont think about this normally but if the little 1 was to trip over it and down the stairs ?????

i bought them but as soon as i fitted them and thought they went straight back

Hi, our local surestart centre has the extendable ones that have to be fixed to the wall for about £8.00 each, not sure if these are available through all surestart centres, hope this helps

You can order extensions from Mothercare.com - if you order instore you can do free delivery to store but I'm sure the boxes contain a leaflet where you can ring up and order the extensions and you only have to pay a flat postage fee.

If you can go for the wall mounted type, safer on stairs then most as the bars on the bottom can be a trip hazard.

if you have a Health Visitor (depending on age of kids), they will be able to referr to you some child safety scheme where you should be able to get 2 free ones. (location depending of course too!)
