The Evenflo Secure Step Top of Stairs Gate, Brown, helps parents keep their children safe from common household dangers, especially around the stairs. The four-point hardware mount provides a secure and easy top of stair mounting for your home. Depending on how you set the swing control, the Evenflo Top of Stairs Gate will swing in one or both directions to prevent swinging over the stairs. To use the child resistant, one-handed Lever Loc mechanism, simply squeeze the buttons and push down to open. This will allow you to pass through the gate quickly and easily, but the two motions to unlock the gate will be too difficult for baby. To close and lock the Evenflo Secure Step Metal Top of Stair Gate, just give the door a gentle push and watch the slam latch feature take over. A quick glance at the red green lock indicator will tell you if the gate is securely locked.
