We put safety locks on the cupboards after my daughter started crawling but tbh we've never bothered with stair gates & at 2 we've never had any problems. I also think if you put gates up then they want to go up & down the stairs, but maybe that's just my experience

I don't own any! Once my daughter learnt to climb up & down stairs she only did when we were going up & down stairs so there was no reason to put gates up. She's now perfectly capable of going up & down stairs (which is handy as we have 2 sets of stairs & her nursery & our bedroom are on the 2nd floor) but she never goes up unless we are. I guess once she figures out how to open doors we may have to buy one but hopefully not.

I put stair gates up once my son started crawling. I haven't bothered with locks as I have put the stair gate on the living room so he can't get in the bathroom or kitchen anyway. I had the safety plugs but found out recently that UK sockets are actually really safe but using those plugs things makes them dangerous x
