Please can somebody advise me on how to tackle having a young toddler in the house with a stair lift? How do you find a stair gate to fit?

Tricky one! Without knowing the layout of the house it's difficult to suggest anything.

Many years ago when our son was at this dangerous age we used to put a safety chain on his bedroom door so that he couldn't get out during the night or early hours without our knowledge.

I know this is very late, but, if you do not have a hinge on the stairlift you can have one fitted that may have to be specially made so it can be opened when on the chair, & because of the rail. The same thing may count if you have a hinge, but that could be considered a safety risk. It is possible to have both & many companies provide both, suitable for the type of stairs, the type of stairlift & the needs of the household.
