Q. Do I need to purchase additional installation kits for the Wall to Banister gate?

A. No. The installation kit is included with the gate and includes the following: 8 screws, 8 anchors, 2 spacers (spacers are used if you have molding on the bottom of the wall side), 2 brackets and a rod. The brackets and rod are made of steel and are black.

INSTALLATION TIP: 
With the many variations in stairs, there is not one process for installation that applies to all homes. With the Stair Barrier you can use the banisters, spindles, multiple spindles and combination of both to install the product. The key is to try multiple options and find the tightest fit that works for your stairs.
