Locking The Kiddyguard Avant
Timed locking - To make it easy, the KiddyGuard™ Avant is equipped with a 'Time Delay Locking Mechanism'. This keeps the gate unlocked while you open or close it. Push and turn the knob up to 290° to open/close the gate. The shorter the turn, the shorter time you will have to get through. The gate will automatically lock when the knob has rolled back to its starting position
Manual locking - For those occasions when you need some extra time. Push and turn the knob all the way past 290° and the gate will remain unlocked, with no time limitation. When you're ready, turn the knob anti-clockwise for immediate locking Avalable From
The Retract-a-gate mentioned in the Narrow Gates section above is also a great top of the stairs choice. Since it retracts, you will not have to move it when not in use. To mount it to the banister you can either use a piece of wood and some zip-ties or buy the banister adapter kit (which is just piece of wood and zip-ties but you pay $30 for the privilege). Go the DIY route and save some coin. It is a very good baby gate and I was impressed with the durability. It is a little on the pricey side but for the convenience of not having to lift out the gate each and every time (along with it being hardware mounted) it is definitely worth it if your budget will cover it. The 52″ is much cheaper than the 72″ but it depends on the distance between your banister and wall.

What surprised me is that this is actually a darn fine retractable baby gate for larger distances too. In fact, you can pretty much mount it anywhere even at the top of your stairs or outside (according to manufacturer). I would listed this baby gate further up the page but then I wouldn’t have had a good baby gate to put in the narrow doorway section now, would I?

So even though you hardware mount this baby gate at the top of the stairs, I would avoid it because of the narrow walkway that could lead to tumble town (use these instead).
