The gate seems to be very sturdy-- we are using them outside on our deck. They do not always automatically close though and sometimes the bottom does not latch all the way unless you shut it very hard but we are happy with the gates and they seem to do a great job. They also shipped very quickly.
After purchasing several baby gates, I am very happy with this purchase. It has been installed for 3 months now and gets opened & closed many, many times a day by us and our toddler. The quality seems great for the price. Easy enough for our 3 year old to open, yet when the baby pushes on it, it doesn't accidentally open. Sturdy unlike wood, in the likely event the kids will stand on it. I also like when you swing it shut it locks on its own. Great color. Only complaint is the bracket piece doesn't allow the gate to swing past 90 degrees.
