Re: How do I block these stairs off?

I was thinking to use it from the banister across to the wall so it is parallel to the front door and not actually at the base of the stairs. Do you think it'd be strong enough for that? I actually hate gates right at the top of the stairs because it just seems like one little slip and you're down the stairs. So whatever we buy will be hung so there is a landing area on either side and not right at the stairs.
