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

Can you get clamping pads that fit any stair gate, or do they go according to brand? We need something a bit stronger than what we have right now.
You could use stronger self-adhesive pads on the clamps. You can get strong ones from DIY shops.

The problem then, is when your older son's friends try and open the stair gate by brute force, the send themselves, the stair gate and half the plaster on the wall down the stairs at the same time.

In the end we used some screw-on ones instead. If you do use a press-fit one, give it a good shove before use as that is what your kids will do.
