fireguard that doesn't damage walls?

Hi
We've got a gas fire with that sort of fake coal stuff that you're not really supposed to move about, and a large marbly hearth, so I think DS is going to have to be kept away from it, but OH is not keen on screwing things into the walls (that were redecorated not long ago)

Are there any fireguards that don't screw into walls? And are they still safe or can the child climb up onto them and pull them over onto themselves?

to be honest, i think that you are best off with one that attaches to the wall.

as you say, a regular one could just be pulled down.

you'll only need to make small holes, which can easily be filled in afterwards. and you might have more children, in which case the fireguard might be a permanent fixture for quite a few years!
