Default Baby gate

Does anyone have any recommendations for a baby gate that will be used for stairs?

I have these three working on my regular stairway and the basement stairs. They all work well, but I would say the first two are my favorites as far as easy installation and ease of use.

We have a metal one that is pressure mounted instead of screwed into the wall. I got it from target over a year ago so I'm not sure if they still sell it. I LOVE it though.

Looks like they sell it at walmart . . .


Its a bit hard to open at first (with one hand) but once you get used to it its really easy. Also, if you end up going with this gate. When you buy it, it looks like the top bar is bent. I actually bought two and even called customer service about it. Basically when you install it, the bars become even since it's pressure mounted.
