Awesome product - sturdy, safe, good-looking, easy/flexible installation
on September 15, 2017
Work great, look great! We have black metal railings in our house and these match perfectly. Mounted them at both the top and bottom of stairs, both wall-to-railing and railing-to-railing with the optional square clamps. If you have narrower railings, you may need to hit the local hardware store to get the right size screws. Other mounting hardware/accessories listed on the manufacturer's website, along with a flowsheet to guide you to what you need. The flexibility to have up to a 30 offset allows you to hit the stud, even if it's not directly across from the railing. See attached photos. The clamps are all unfinished wood. I spray-painted them with black semi-gloss and it looks great. Most importantly, they are sturdy, easy to operate one-handed, and our daughter doesn't have a prayer of getting out on her own. Would use the SS-30 Stairway Special Gate for top-of-stair locations, since the latch is even harder for a kid to open and still easy for an adult to do one-handed.
