Install Baby Gates On Wrought Iron

Keep an eye on a toddler on the move by installing a baby gate.

A toddler on the run may need an introduction to a baby gate. Baby gates are childproof structures that fit easily into door frames to prevent your young one from running from room to room without you. If you have a wrought iron staircase that you would like to block off, then you may want to install a baby gate across the entry opening of the gate as well. To do this, you will need to purchase a wrought iron baby gate installation kit. Does this Spark an idea?


1. Place on each side of the wrought iron staircase in which you would like to close off with a baby gate the two long, vertical slats of wood that come with your baby gate installation kit. These slats of wood have two panels and will slip over the wrought iron railings to provide a support structure for the baby gate.

2. Tighten the bolts or screws connecting the two slats of wood so that they stand firmly across the wrought iron.

3. Attach the wooden baby gate to each of the wood slat panels on each side of the staircase. To do this, press one side of the gate against one panel. The tension rod will collapse, helping you to ease the gate into place. Place the other end of the gate into the other panel.
