I need to install a safety gate at the top of the stairs urgently. We have an electric drill but I don't know how - or if I need to check for wires in the wall before I do it. What's the best way to do this?
You can buy a little detector that scans the walls.www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01DP3Y7WK?psc=1
I have never bothered but obviously if the hole is to be directly above/ below a socket/ switch then there's likely to be a wire there so avoid
