Installation Kits

Installation Kits

Universal installation kits are available for a variety of safety gates. They usually consist of an assortment of clamp-like devices for mounting gate hardware on either a round or square newel post along with an unfinished piece of lumber. As you might imagine, they are bulky and unsightly making your new safety gate look “temporary” at best, followed by the words “I can’t wait to take these things down”!

When I get a request for a safety gate (non-custom) I try to blend the new device into the client’s décor. That usually means cutting/ripping and beveling a piece of hardwood for the newel post, and painting or staining it to match. This not only looks better, but it becomes an integral part of the safety gate system, allowing your family to enjoy its function without cursing its form.

A professional childproofing service can make educated suggestions regarding the most appropriate safety gate for your particular application. The types and price points of safety gates to choose from can be overwhelming to a new parent and materials range from plastic to wood to metal to aluminum. Not to mention the latest offering in the industry, furniture grade custom removable hardwood swing gates. Please check out our website for photos.
