After my three year old granddaughter took a tumble down the very steep stairs at my son's house, he and my husband got together and put up a second rail that the little ones can reach. Now they have no trouble holding on going up and down the stairs! They bought two 10' lengths of railing and matched the hardware on the original rail. Then, by using a plumb line to make sure the rail was fastened in the same vertical placement as the original, it was easy to make this staircase a whole lot safer for the toddlers in our lives.
