It's hard to give a piece of metal anything but 5 stars... what would have helped is a little guidance about how they work and how many you need. Let me spell this out for you, 1 Y-spindle is not enough for 1 side, it is literally 1 Y-spindle. I wondered why anyone might want just 1... well this is what you need to know.

The gate has 4 friction points and comes with flat disks that give good friction to walls or anything else that is flat. So ask yourself, is my spindle rectangular on the bottom 2 inches as it enters the floor/stairs? If rectangular on the bottom, but round at the top, then you'll need 1 Y-spindle for each spindle you are placing the gate between. If your spindle is round top-to-bottom, then you'll need to Y-spindles per side.

I hope this helps someone... I also have some advice about the gate, but I'm putting that with the gate reviews.

Others on here have discussed how well this works, so I think I will provide a little detail of our exact experience. We originally purchased a well reviewed, non-pressure mounted baby gate for our stairs. However, I realized the assembly was far too complicated, so instead we purchased an additional KidCo G15. We already had two and were extremely happy with their simplicity and quality.

One side of our staircase is a wall, so it presented no problems. The other is a wrought iron gate, so it presented plenty of problems. At first, I only ordered one Y Spindle, then realized when I received it that you actually need two, one for the top (as you see in the picture of the Y Spindle) and the other for the bottom (not pictured). We got our second one and installed it and couldn't be happier. It is SO easy and SO simple compared to the other remedies I found that I highly recommend it to anyone dealing with a similar problem.

We looked for a way to install a gate on our steps that have only a railing on one side. We really didn't want to drill holes into the banister, and this was the perfect solution. It works perfectly on both the top and bottom of our stairs with the pressure-mounted gate.

Fit our Summer Extra Tall Walk Through Gate perfectly. Like others have said, you will need one Y spindle for each round portion of your balusters. Ours were square on the bottom so we only needed two for the tops.

I tried several different banister gate mounting parts and this was the one i kept, works like a charm on our 1" x 1" spindles and holds the gate tightly with no worries that the gate might come loose.

Thought I would take a chance to see if this would work with our Summer Infant gate, but the thread pattern and diameter of the screw didn't fit. If it did fit, it would have done what it's supposed to do. Had to return it.

This spindle attachment is exactly what we needed. Our stair well banister and the wall do not match up at all - the gate would have to be slated and we did not want to drill into the banister. The spindle attachment allows us to use the tension option on the gate without having to damage the walls or banister. We love it!!! If you have a wide staircase, I would recommend getting the gate extender to use with the Y spindle option - our son is starting to figure out that he may be able to get up the space in between where the gate ends and the stair rail begins since it is about a 5" gap. Y spindle works great!!!

I was a little skeptical about how this was going to work, but I have spindles on one side of my staircase and stained wooden molding on the other side, so I didn't want to drill any holes. The other kits were wooden pieces that went around the spindles, and didn't look very good in my opinion. Since my spindles are black iron, I got the black Kidco gate which is pressure mounted. These are very sturdy and the entire system was very easy to install. It also looks good!!! I would definitely recommend these over any other spindle kit.
