Top of Stairs Baby Safety Gate Installation – Irvine, CA

The staircase picture below may look steep to you as an adult, so imagine what it may look like to a small child, and what the consequences of him or she falling from this height may be.

Stairs are one of the main hazards for children between six months (or when they start to crawl) and two years of age so having a gate properly installed during this period of time is crucial in keeping them safe.

The baby safety gate pictured above was properly mounted to the banister post using a no holes banister kit to avoid causing damage to the walls and furniture, but also mounted in a way that allows the gate to be close enough to the floor so as not to pose a falling or entrapment hazard. The distance between the gate and the floor is in fact extremely important, and unfortunately not everybody is aware of that.

As professional babyproofers, we see a lot of installations carried out by parents or by people who, although with the best intentions, mount a baby gate to far from the floor, not realizing that a baby with the ability to crawl will be able to make his way under the gate and access the staircase. Furthermore, as the child gets older and becomes a toddler, the gap under the gate could easily become an entrapment or strangulation hazard.

Improperly installed baby gates not only provide a false sense of security but, as just explained, may also pose a safety hazard. This is why it is so important to hire a professional that knows the correct gate to install for your specific needs but also knows how to install the baby gate correctly.

Many people put-off baby proofing because they do not have the time- there is absolutely no excuse for that. I have taken care of patients who have their babies fall down stairs, choke on door stoppers, and pull down furniture onto themselves. This can be prevented. And the service is very affordable- the only additional cost versus doing it yopurself is the labor cost.Thank you to Baby Safe Homes for providing an excellent service to me and my patients.

Hi all. I just wanted to let you know that we recently used Baby Safe Homes to childproof our house. More than a few friends referred us to this company and I can’t speak highly enough it. They came to our house for a consultation, made recommendations, and did immediate installation. He was very honest and didn’t pressure us to buy or install anything we didn’t feel we needed to. If you have an infant ready to crawl (as we do) I’d highly recommend Baby Safe Homes.

Thank you very much for making my house a safer place for my twin girls. You did a wonderful job! Everything works great, and I’m starting to appreciate all the devices even more as the girls get better at getting into things. I will certainly recommend Baby Safe Homes to all of my friends with kids and my patients.

Baby Safe Homes was an absolute pleasure to work with. I felt so overwhelmed by the process of babyproofing I procrastinated until my 8 month old was on the go. Within a few short days of my initial call Baby Safe Homes came out, gave me the guidance I needed, and proofed my entire house with top of the line products all within a 2 1/2 hour period. I can actually get more done now without constantly stopping to chase my son!

Thank you for helping us babyproof our new home. I loved that you gave us all the options and didn’t push anything on us and allowed us to pick what we felt was necessary. Also, I couldn’t believe how quick everything was finished. Within a few days of speaking with you, you came out and installed everything in just 2 hours! Our stair gates look and work great! I wish I had heard of you before and I will definitely recommend you to all of my family and friends. Thanks again.
