Screw in Baby Gates – How to Install Them Yourself
For those without a drywall wall, you can easily install a screw in baby gate on your home’s walls. Simply measure six inches above the floor and mark the screw holes with a studfinder. If you find the holes are not on studs, you’ll need drywall anchors. Luckily, there are many inexpensive and easily installed screw in baby gate kits available.

The first step in installing a baby gate is to choose a mounting system. You can use a latch mount or a screw mount. Before installing a latch mount or a screw in baby gate, hold it against the banister adaptor wood. Then, you must extend the gate until it reaches the length that the latch mount is supposed to latch. Then, unlatch it and mark the screw holes with a marker. Once you’ve marked the screws, screw them into the wood using an impact driver.
The second option is to use a pressure mounted baby gate. This option is easier to install and does not require drilling into the wall. It also allows you to use a pressure mount for a larger gate. While it is easier to install a pressure mount than a screw in baby gate, it is still not impossible. This option is also very safe for your child, thanks to its dual locking mechanism. The gate also has a dual door that swings in both directions.
