  • From a Need to a Dream--The Launch of The Stair Barrier

    From a Need to a Dream--The Launch of The Stair Barrier

    In July 2007 my family moved into our current home. My daughter Peyton was 2 ½ years old, and my son PJ was 2 months old. I also had two large 4-legged babies, Harley and Olivia. We had spent six months building our home, and I never once considered I’d have to use our terribly unattractive, old baby gates. That was until moving day. As I was hauling boxes through the front door and up my extra-wide stairs with its volute (curved) banisters, I realized my gates were not going to work on my new stairs.

    There was the feeling of relief, but also the nagging question of what am I going to do? PJ was going to be mobile in the next 6 months and I didn't want the dogs having access to the up-stairs. Another issue, my last 3 stairs are wood and extremely slick for the dogs to navigate. I knew Harley, being older and larger, would have trouble maneuvering her way down the stairs. The possibility of her breaking or tearing something was very real. Safety aside, my new stairs are the first thing you see when entering my home. The thought of my old gates on my new stairs, made my head spin. I had at least 4 months before PJ was mobile—plenty of time to find gates that worked with my stairs and that were also attractive. I spent that time searching on-line and in stores. I found nothing!
