How To Childproof Your Stairs Like A Pro

 

So you’ve got some gates set up on your stairs and are feeling pretty good about yourself – think they’ll pass muster with the International Association Of Certified Home Inspectors? Pro tip: Unless you have wall-mounted gates at both the top and bottom of the stairs, and you used wall anchors when no studs were available, you’re probably getting a big fat “F” from the NACHI (also, your kid is in mortal danger). Their guidelines for proper stair childproofing are easy to follow and inexpensive, unless you have a flight with 4 or more steps that doesn’t have a handrail. In that case, brother, prepare to get NACHI-ed.
