Every year, nearly 100,000 thousand children are taken to ER's, for injuries that happenon stairs.
Usually in the home.
That works out to an injury every six minutes.
Never use a pressure mounted gate on a stairway.
Pressure mounted gates are great for doorways, but not for a staircase where they can bepushed on, and made loose.
[MUSIC] Always have your staircase gates, open out, and away from the staircase.
This is especially true at the top of the stairs, where your baby might be leaning onthe gate, and and when it opens, the baby could fall down the stairs.
For that reason, always have your staircase gates open out, and away from the stairs.
