Due to all the interest I recieved regarding the Childproof Window Gate my wonderful husband Mr. Fixit was kind enough to explain how he created it. If you have any questions please ask them in comments section or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Build Your Own Child Safety Gate
Two 2X4’s cut to your needed length. They should be taller than the piece of deck railing.
1 piece of deck railing
1 lock that meets your needs, in my case I used a sliding bolt lock.
The build is pretty simple. I started by using the two by fours to build the window out. I placed one two by four on each side of the window and secured the boards with screws. I made sure that the piece of deck railing would fit in between the two by fours. This was important because otherwise my lock would not work. Next I attached the hinges to the deck railing and then attached the hinges to the two by four. If you look at the picture posted on the blog you can see how this was done. I put the gate together this way because it made the build quick and easy. If you feel more ambitious you can take this a whole lot further. Finally I attached my lock. In my case I had close the gate and then mark where each side of the lock needed to be attached.
Please, if you have any questions post them here on the blog. Mr. Fixit would be happy to answer them or even help you trouble shoot a difficult build.
