I'd like some help with a way I can keep this gate open that does not require making any permanent changes to the wall. It strangely opens toward inside where the stairs are. Naturally, I normally just wedge something in front of it but I'm looking for something easier where I won't have to. The texture of the wall (picture 2) is not receptive to command/3M hooks and neither is the weather here. I was thinking even an extendable ladder the wedges between the side and the open gate but that seems pretty ridiculous. I'm sure there is something else I can do. Would also be great for my neighbors who constantly hear the gate smash closed multiple times on the weekends when I don't have something heavy enough to wedge it open with haha.
Thank you in advance!
Hi @itsangus Merry Xmas
Could I recommend wedges underneath the gate on the top step?
I dont know the power of your gate spring so I offer a three pack of wedges in case one is not enough.
total cost is $3,64 for this experimental solution. The wedges are rated highly and should do the job with out adding gate latch fitting on the wall.
Use the i/n number and staff can take you right to them
@Jewelleryrescue's idea of using wedges sounds like a winner. It's a bit hard to tell from your images, but there appears to be enough room on that top step once the door is open to chock it with a wedge. If that doesn't sound like it will work, then you could use a Handi Homes 88 - 160cm Aluminium Extenda Rail to place between the top of the open door and the adjacent wall.
Please let us know if you have questions.
