This 2 pack of pressure gate Y-spindle rods from Baby Gate Guru is designed as an adapter to help your gate fit banisters at the bottom of stairways. It can be used against banisters, railings, balustrades, and other round supports. It can also be used on angled wall corners or other unorthodox places where a Y-shape spindle rod will fit.
Available in 2 standard sizes. M8 fits gates with a 7-8mm diameter opening. M10 fits gates with a 9-10mm diameter opening.
Measuring Your Gate
If you are not sure which size will fit your pressure mounted gate, you can measure the holes that the spindle rods go into to determine the correct size yourself. An M8 screw’s true diameter will measure slightly less than 8mm, so will fit nicely into a 7-8mm hole. An M10 screw’s true diameter will measure slightly less than 10mm, and will fit nicely into a 9-10mm hole.
Note: Pressure mounted gates are not suitable for use at top of staircases. Only certified hardware-mounted gates should be used in that location. Use a maximum of 2 banister adapters for each installation, to ensure a strong fit. Use standard spindle rods for connections on remaining flat surfaces. Always follow your gate manufacturer’s installation instructions and ensure a strong fit before use.
