Fred Safety Pressure Fit Clear-View Stairgate


Safety gates will stop young children from climbing or falling down the stairs and help contain them in one safe room. 

The Pressure Fit Clear-View stairgate is crafted from a professional-grade acrylic blend that seamlessly blends in with your home's aesthetics. Clear, strong, and durable, it ensures a safe haven for your little ones.

The Pressure Fit design can easily be attached with the wall cups and secure adhesive for a strong hold, with an option for 4 screws. WHICH? Recommended product. 

Operate with a single hand, thanks to the built-in pressure lift, and enjoy added security with the two-action press and lift feature. The gate swings both ways, with an optional 1-way setting and an additional luminating strip is placed on the lower bar to avoid trips. 

Standing tall at 77cm to prevent breakouts, our gate boasts a 2-way child-proof magnetic locking system with a visual colour alert. Made from bite-proof and lick-safe materials, it keeps curious fingers at bay. Complies with or exceeds EN1930 and EN71.

Note: While functional as an animal gate, it's not bite-proof against dogs/cats.

Designed to fit openings between 76cm-96cm wide using the 2 Gate Extensions included, or 124cm wide by adding up to 4 more extensions (sold separately). 

Featuring an easy installation with wall cups and our Fred SecureHold™ adhesive, with the option for using 4 screws for an unbreakable hold. The Accu-Fit™ indicators show when the gate has been installed correctly and the included screws, fittings, and a magnetic spirit level ensure the perfect fit.

Versatility is key! This gate will fit walls with or without standard size skirting board, and additional accessories like the Fred Stairpost Kit and Y-Spindle (sold separately) can help solve trickier placements.
