Great job on this instructible! I really don’t like the hardware used for the latch. Mainly because you could poke somebody’s eye out, but the rule with stairwell gates is “all gates swing downstairs”. This gate, with this setup is in the way unless it is latched, right? What you need is an extension for the newel post, that makes it so that you can use a barrel-bolt but it’s on the stairway side, invisible to your son. Most importantly, when the door flings open there’s not there’s plenty metal thing sticking out.
*pointy. The barrel bolt allows it to swing both ways improving the flow of traffic.
