Best Baby Gate for Stairs

Best Baby Gate For Stairs

Cardinal Gates Stairway Special Safety Gate (SS-30)

After careful research through price and feature shopping online, reading purchaser feedback, perusing manufacturers' websites, watching Youtube videos, and visiting baby stores to physically see products, I selected Cardinal Gate's Stairway Special Safety Gate for both my top of stair and my bottom of stair baby / dog gate.  I purchased and installed 2 of these gates which now have been in place for several months so this review includes real life testing with twin babies and a 65 lb German Shorthaired Pointer.
