This gate is a pressure mounted gate. The Regalo Extra WideSpan Walk Through Safety Gate is not going to be a safe choice for the top of stairs. You will want a hardware mounted gate for dangerous areas such as the top of the stairs. However, this is a great gate for keeping a child out of the kitchen or putting between any doorway that doesn't have a drop off.
How It Locks
There were quite a few comments advising people to always push the latch all the way down in order to lock it. Otherwise, toddlers will start to figure a way to unlatch it. Here is a customer comment on how to latch it properly,
