What’s in the Box
Regalo Top of Stairs Gate, banister mounts, wall mounts, built in gate leveler and instruction manual.
Hardware for two banisters is included.
Q:How does it attach to the wall? I need to attach to wall and banister?
Yes. Or you can attach to two banisters, which was why I bought it. It comes with the ability to attach to two banisters without drilling holes, but having heacy duty braces and velcro that holds it in place..two and a half years and counting and it works perfectly. It also comes with screws etc to screw into the wall and a banister
Q:What is the height, from the floor to the top rail of gate, after the gate has been installed?
30.5 inches from floor to top of gate. BUT, it depends on how you attach it to wall. My husband did it almost flush with floor. There is a middle knob that twists and provides support. This can be twisted to provide more middle support and can touch or not touch the floor. We keep it off the floor but still providing support on transitions because it scratches as you open it. We could just add some felt, but never did.
Q:How can I attach this to narrow spindles? My wide banister post is surrounded by narrow spindles, and I can’t attach the brackets to the banister.
I made a modification when in installing the one I purchased. Got a round wooden pole from Home depot , and placed it in front of the spindles worked out fine.
Q:How long is the Velcro strap to go around a banister? I have thick posts, 4 inches at the middle, 6 inches at the bottom. Thanks!
Not sure on exact length but we have 4″ to 6″ on the bottom and they barely fit the 4×4″ square top post. I really don’t recommend this gate. We needed something though so I Jimmy rigged it to work with my own supplies.
Q:Would this product be recommended for a stair way that the wall and banister don’t aline, gate would be at an angel. My wall ends two feet before my banister does.
Yes, it would work because of how it hooks to the banister.
Q:How do I get it to expand to the full 42″? I can only get it to 39″…
You have remove the plastic spacers bring the sliding portion of the gate over the metal ridge that stops it at 39″ **then reinsert spacer” and bam 3 extra inches. Though it is less stable at that extension.
Q:Is it possible to remove the gate itself, without tools, while leaving the attachment hardware on either wall in place?
Oh, yes, we do it all the time when our grandchild is not here
Q:Our top banister was damaged and wobbles side to side. Would that be an issue with this style of installation?
Q:is this easy enough for my kids to open?
No. They barely fit around my 3″ square posts.
Q:doe this swing both ways?
Q:We have a narrow stairway at about 33inches wide… does this gate fully open and does it swing open (not slide open)?
Yes, the gate fully swings open. You can extend the width of the gate by sliding the gate as much as you need to, but at 33 inches I do no think you will need to do that.
Q:I have a metal spiral staircase that I need to block my 2 yr old from decending. Will this attache effectively to a metal banister?
My gate is attached to a small metal railing. It works great! However I attached mine with zip ties. May not be the most attractive attachment but it works. I did not need to drill any holes in the wall or railing.
Q:I have spindles only that are available for the gate on the bottom and top of stairs. Would this work for spindles and wall–no posts?
How big are the spindles? You need something with a wide base to support the gate
Q:My stair handle would allow for a gate that’s 31 inches or lower in total height. Would this work for me?
It will be tight, but the gate is 31″ exactly.
Q:I have a square banister on both sides. Will this work with the no hole attachments so we do not have to drill holes in the banister?
Yup! It comes with attachments for two banisters, and there is no drilling into banisters to attach the gate.
Q:Can this be installed with banister-wall without screwing into wall side?
No, it cannot unless you are handy and can create something on your own.
Q:My deck stairs have a rather short post on one side and a taller one on the other. Can the velcro go at any point along the post?
Hi yes it can. It all depends on how you put it around the post
Q:would the straps fit around a 4″ square bannister?
In my experience, no. I returned the product for this very reason. The brackets are designed for rounded banisters, and are made of hard plastic, so you cannot manipulate the shape.
Although we haven’t take ours down yet I don’t think it would ruin the wood on the stairs. You don’t actually drill into the wood at all. The gate straps on with velcro and tighteners but uses rubber protectors around the wood. You do drill into the wall on the opposite side.
Q:How much of a gap is there between each bar? I want to know if my puppy can slip through it.
Only a couple inches. I doubt a puppy could squeeze through.
Q:How long are the Velcro straps for the banisters? My banisters are 7 to 9 inches around and most straps are too short.
I didn’t keep this gate, but from what I remember, the straps were long enough to fit around my banister. I have a square post at the bottom and round at the top. The square is roughly 2in on each side and the straps did fit. The gate itself didn’t seem sturdy enough for my particular staircase.
Q:I have a thin metal railing on one side, not a wood banister. Would the banister hardware work on a metal railing that is about an inch around?
One inch around is not enough. You would have to securely fasten more material around your railing. Please note that the material must be very securely fastened to the railing. This is what holds the gate up securing the area for your little one. If it is not absolutely secure, there can be fatal consequences.
Q:Is there a lock on this gate?
No the gate doesn’t have a lock per ce. It does have a mostly childproof latch. Basically if your kid is smart enough and dexterous enough to successfully manipulate the latch, then they are probably too old to keep gated in some where. My 4 year old has not figured it out yet. Which is good, because my one year old loves climbing stairs. Cheers
Q:Does this gate fully open or is it a little door way like entrance that you must walk through?
This gate fully opens.
Q:I need it to extend to 55″. Can you use the extenders with this style gate?
I had to order an extension
Q:Our banister is not flush with the floor (like shown in all the pictures), can the bottom banister attachment be used 6-12″ above the floor level?
I’m not totally sure what you’re asking.
Q:How far off the ground is the bottom bar? Is the foot piece that touches the ground adjustable? Can a cat squeeze underneath it?
About one inch or two. Yes it its. Maybe a baby kitten, but not a cat. Easily jumped by a cat, though.
Q:I have a 5″ baseboard that I would like to avoid putting holes in. Can it just attach to the wall without a large gap between the gate and the floor?
Yes, there are separator pieces that sit between the wall-post and the wall, so that the wall-post is against the baseboard, but above the baseboard it is held rigidly, but still plumb.
It expands and swings, as it has two metal railings that slide along/ against each other.
Q:Can this gate be mounted to a door frame (wood) on both sides?
I don’t think it would work well for that.
Q:The bottom of my banister is supported with extra wood, can I use the banister velcro at the top and wall mount at the bottom on the same side?
No you should use the Velcro on one side and the wall mount on the other in the wall. The Velcro should fit around the Banister because adjust to the size
