being MVP: Keeping Kids Safe with The Stair Barrier + #Giveaway

Keeping Kids Safe with The Stair Barrier + #Giveaway

Disclosure: I received a Banister to Wall from The Stair Barrier. All opinions are my own.

Living in a 3-story home leaves me with the fear of tumbling children. We have an awkward opening between the first floor and the second that we have tried blocking with ill-fitting gates and non-secure gates. So when I saw the Stair Barrier, I was very intrigued at the possibly of beautifully keeping my kids safe.


The Banister to Wall Stair Barrier was just released and it's exactly what I've been imagining for the odd space. I've spoken to several child gate brands and couldn't find anything to fit properly and  safely. My MIL would always worry that something would happen to the kids and even told us to build a wall where the odd railing was. Needless to say, that was something Hubs did not want to do or incur the cost for. So when the stair barrier arrived, I couldn't get it out of the box fast enough.


I was going to install it myself because the directions seemed simple but Hubs decided to help because he didn't want to "re-do" my work since I'm not a master driller. The instructions were easy to follow as you just need to mark off where you want to place the brackets (using the spacers if you want to drill into molding but I decided right about the molding would be fine for us), drill in the nails with accompanying anchors and place the rod in between. Once secure to the wall, unroll the barrier and use the straps to clip onto banister/odd railing.


Even Mason wanted to join in and help daddy with his own set of tools. Yes we let him pretend to screw because he's so darn cute. I am in love with the stair barrier. I decided to face the personalized patch with our name towards the inside of the home rather than the front door side so we can see it all the time. You can even have several patches and swap them out depending upon holidays or even school spirit.


I am so glad that we now have something that keeps the kids safe (even though I've put the fear in them that if they go near the bottom stairs that their heads will crack open) as well as look stylish rather than unsecured partial super gates blocking the steps.


If you have a lovely staircase in your home without a clue of how to protect your tot from climbing up the stairs, check out the Banister to Banister Stair Barrier. No tools needed, just clip to the sides and you are ready to use! How amazing is that?

  3. We have a 3 story home also - and the steps seem extremely steep to me....climbing up them is easy, but that tumble down is fast and hard!

  4. OMG! I love this! I need this for my home because I have a 2 year old that needs to stay off the stairs. There are a lot of things that he could get into if unsupervised.

  11. This is so nice looking! I need this because I also have a staircase that is oddly placed and I cant seem to find a baby gate that fits it very well. I need something durable too!

  12. Ohhh, this will be perfect in the next few months when my little guy starts crawling. We only have one small set of two stairs in the living room into the kitchen, but my daughter fell on them plenty of times, so I know it is only a matter of time.

  15. Holy cow, this is exactly what we need! My youngest is crawling all over the place and recently discovered the stairs. There is a really strange setup for our banister and wall, so it's been impossible (so far) to find a gate that works. Right now, we've shoved a large ottoman in front of the stairs but that will only work for a while! I would love to win this to make our stairs safe again!

  18. Wow! This is so great-looking! We have a gate for our stairs that has seen better days and is now starting to scratch the wood on the stair treads- it's also ugly. :( I'd love to have this pretty banner instead!

  20. This would be amazing to have on our staircase as our 9 month old is scooting everywhere and we are due in October!

  21. This would be great to put on the stairs. My grandson who has learned to climbed steps is trying to go over the gate this would be a great deterrent from him messing with the stairs at all.

  22. This would be great to keep the baby (who will soon be mobile!) from falling down the stairs.
