Stair Gate

Post by robcar » Sat Oct 01, 2016 12:10 pm

I need to stop my dog going upstairs to explore and sleep so I am looking for a 'stair gate' sometimes referred to as a safety gate. I would prefer a wooden concertina type that can fold away. I have looked at Lazada and nothing on there is really suitable. I you have seen any for sale in Hua Hin, I would appreciate some pointers as to where to look.

Thanking you in advance for any info.

Made my own at the time and in a different country, but you can scout the plant gardens for bamboo trellises; they cost almost nothing and all you probably will need is a couple of zip ties to keep it in place.
My boxer still found a way to make it upstairs and warm the foot of my bed. Miss the bugger.

When I saw the heading Stair gate, I assumed it was about some political scandal that happened on the stairs.

We got one years ago when my kids were young to keep them out of the kitchen (OK to keep them locked up). It was the accordian style you mentioned. Perhaps, if it exists, a store catering to babies

Homepro has some concertina style PVC partitions for rooms or shed/cupboard doors.(in the curtain section I think) I've seen a low demo about 5 foot, don't know if they go smaller, but probably do if you order it in.

There is a small mothercare type shop in MV basement.

Thank you all for your input so far............... I had a quick nosy around one of the plant/garden places in Railway Road this morning but couldn't see anything that was suitable or that I would/could buy. I'll check the other one tomorrow. I'll be checking out MV tomorrow morning when it's quiet, I hate shopping at the best of times but weekends are really taboo lol.

Problem solved with thanks to you guys on here especially VincentD and pensorter for directions.

Went to HomePro for a wonder this morning and found some white plastic concertina fencing, the sort of thing that goes around the flower beds, 32'' high and expands out about the same.

Happy Bunny. Thanks again.

:cheers:

Forgot to mention the enormous cost...........329Baht :wink:
