Re: attaching a stair gate... Help! What is this tool in the instructions

If you were to drill in the walls, can you be sure that there's no electricity cable or water pipe beneath the surface?

If the tool, is indeed a bradawl, and your screws aren't long, you should be able to push and twist sufficiently to make a hole for a screw to hold.

I'm assuming you're looking to attach plastic caps on the wall, for the ends of the gate to fix into.

The ones I had, also had sticky pads on, and these were sufficient - well, for the bottom of the stairs, possibly not for the top, though (although I did, too - but on wood).
