Bottom Line

Designed for use at the top of stairways, the KidCo Safeway features a secure hardware mounting system that is stable and secure. Experts and owners say the Safeway gate is well-made and easy to mount and use. It has a directional stop to prevent it from swinging out over the stairs. The basic model secures openings of 24 to 43 inches and can be mounted at an angle. There is a wide range of other models available.


Mounts securely to stairwells using hardware mounts. The KidCo Safeway gate mounts to walls or stairwells using hardware that must be drilled into a wall stud or stairway post. This hard form of mounting ensures that the gate cannot be knocked free. According to parents and reviewers, the basic Safeway's hardware mounts create a highly stable gate that kids can even hang from.
