Reference: https://imgur.com/a/1WtsitL I’m trying to install a baby gate. I don’t have a stud that is across the Bannister. The other wall does have a stud, although the stud finder gave me about a 1 ft long stud/beep which makes me think I shouldn’t drill there. Possibly the hvac vent?
Would appreciate any help on if it’s a no-no to drill into a wall that is exterior on the other side?
