Where can I find a baby-gate that will attach to a metal banister?

We have a pretty long staircase and at the top there are metal banisters on either side. I have yet to find a baby gate that will work in this situation and its starting to make me nervous...

  • have you tried doing a google search? i've never seen anything in stores, i actually had to not even try to put one on top of my stairs b/c the molding on the bottom sticks out too much so the gate doesn't connect to the top. i put it either at the end of the hallway near my daughters door or at her door. as for downstairs we have a metal banister there. you walk in our front door and there is a small section of tile, immediately to your left is the stairs and bathroom, and the wall on the stairs doesn't go all the way down. so we got a gate that was really really long from next to the door to where the wall ended that way it still blocked the stairs and as a bonus blocked the bathroom too. maybe you could find something like that?
