Qdos Advantages

The strong and sturdy Qdos Crystal Hardware Mount Gate meets the very tough requirements of the European Safety Standards, as well as the US and Canadian Safety Standards. Many other gates on the US and Canadian markets would not be able to withstand the European testing.
The Qdos FastMount™ Rails truly make this the simplest hardware mounted gate on the market to install! Each FastMount™ Rail functions as a template for where to put two screws in, it doesn't get any easier. The FastMount™ Rails also allow the gate to be installed at any angle.
The Qdos magnetic lock has the At-A-Glance Indicator™ to let you know that the gate is properly locked and secure. The indicator turns green when the gate is locked.
The Crystal gate combines the strength and simple eye catching beauty of high grade Acrylic to offer this unique top end safety gate.
The included baseboard adapters allow you to install the gate perfectly over baseboards up to 0.75” (19 mm) thick and 4.25” (11 cm) tall. The top adapter also comes with spacers to allow you to mount the FastMount™ rail perfectly vertical even if the wall isn’t perfect, without the need for any additional accessories.
Quarter round moldings are always a challenge when installing a gate, but we have you covered. If there is a quarter round present, simply pull out the quarter round insert from the bottom of the FastMount™ Rail and it fits right over the molding.
The included adhesive level helps you keep the FastMount™ Rails perfectly positioned during installation. With the included installation marker simply mark the location for the screw holes. It couldn’t be simpler and faster!
Having a dinner party, or perhaps you're between kids and would like to remove the gate temporarily? No problem. It is a snap to do with included tool!
Sometimes it’s not possible to have the gate installed perfectly perpendicular between two walls. Thanks to the FastMount™ Rails on the Crystal Hardware Mount gate this no problem as it can be installed at different angles all the way up to 180 degrees. This allows you to install the gate on the walls in front of an opening, instead of within in the opening.
Easily adjusts to fit any opening between 29.2 and 39.4” without the need for any additional parts or pieces.
The One-Way Stop function should be used to prevent the gate from swinging out over stairs or in any other location where you need to control the opening direction.

The SecureHold™ adhesive wall cups are necessary to use with the Crystal Pressure Mount gate in order to get a secure installation. Installing any pressure mount gate without wall cups is simply not safe, regardless of gate model or location. Adhesive only installation is only recommended for installation in a painted door frame, a painted framed opening, OR a painted & smooth drywall. In any other situation you must also use the included screws.
The wide 23” (58.5 cm) door on the Crystal gate is easily pushed closed and the At-A-Glance Indicator™ on the handle confirms that the gate is properly locked and secure.
Quarter round moldings normally make proper installation of a pressure mount gate almost impossible. Our unique QRF Spindle™ goes over the quarter round molding and allows for a perfect installation.

This gate can fit openings from 29” up to 48” (76 - 122 cm) by the addition of up to 6 extensions. Two extensions are included and additional ones are available as accessories.
