How I Made A Wooden Extending Stair Gate More Difficult For Toddler To Open

This wooden extending stair gate was safe for a while but once toddlers get to a certain size and ingenuity they learn to open them.

This video shows an 18 month old toddler proudly and easily defeating the locking mechanism and opening the gate, falling forward falling as he uses his weight to move it.  After a fixed1t simple modification, he unhappily discovers he can no longer open the gate.

This simple modification made the gate a little safer and last longer.  Please send to anyone who may have one of these so they or somebody they know can make this simple modification as I'm not on mums net ;-)
