My son is crawling and I need to install the baby gate that we got from the baby shower. This will be installed onto the wall but before I do that I need to determine what direction I want it to swing. The directions say I need to determine this now before I make holes in the wall.
This will be at the top of the stairs. I can have it swing both directions, or just one. If I do just one direction, should it open "onto the landing" or out over the stairs?
I imagine that forcing it to be only open onto the landing would be a little safer but it might be more convenient to have it swing both directions.
