I needed a gate to keep my 55lb ,6 month old Lab puppy out of my office when I am working . This fit the bill, just what I needed. It installed quickly , and is attractive. She can see me , but not bother me . It is sturdy and it worked for my purpose. The lock to open it has a childproof feature which might come in handy when the grand kids come over.
I have 4 dogs, 3 Golden Retrievers and a Wheaten Terrier. The terrier literally ate through the gates I originally had and the retrievers were able to push through the original gates. These Duragate pet barriers are the answer to my prayers. They were very easy to install (a power screwdriver and a level). They are attractive and very sturdy. The one handed operation to open and close makes it very easy to go from room to room. I would recommend this product to anyone with pets and/or children.
I am more than pleased with this gate! We have thrown away many, many pet/baby gates made of wood and plastic that our dog destroyed. This is the only gate that she has not been able to tear down and believe me, she has tried. The lock is double protection for our grandchildren. I wish we had bought one years ago!
We've had this and the height extension for three years now at the top of our basement stairs where we have no door. We got it after my husband fell down the stairs and broke his neck after the electricity went out and he couldn't see the opening. It really works and has made us feel so much safer. It also keeps all of our pets from going downstairs except for one cat who has figured out how to jump over in both directions!
We bought two of these to keep two energetic puppies where they could be monitored. Three years later, they are still securely hung and working, even though one puppy who is now 100 pounds, likes to put his front paws on it to greet me.
I have carpal tunnel and the release is so so easy to use one handed. My Shetland Sheepdogs are well contained in the laundry room area with this gate in place. It is the perfect height for them and the smooth finish protects them from getting cut on any part of the gate. Never have I seen a better thought out gate system for separating your loved pets from getting into another area in the home. Hope that they keep making this gate.
the same mfgr makes better gates that are easier to open. it works but its not so easy with one hand

I was about to go insane trying to find a way to keep my Jack Russell in a designated part of the house. He discovered a few months ago how to move the baby gates and escape, regardless of how much I barricaded them. I ran across gate by accident and, after reading the reviews, ordered one immediately (after I finally stopped laughing because I could relate to all who had the same problem with their Houdini Canine)! It arrived promptly (and the only problem was the box was damaged and open but the gate was fine and all pieces were there). My son-in-law installed it (easy job) and I am beyond pleased with it! My "little boy" has finally been defeated! No more escaping (and he definitely tried to figure out how to get the gate open). The cost of the gate: Excellent The look on my baby's face when he couldn't get it open: PRICELESS!!! I highly recommend it to all my friends with four-legged escape artist babies!!

Purchased this as a gift for a friend with an 8 week old puppy - expected to reach 40 to 50 lbs. It was easy to install and will assist in having direct line of sight during the all important early training stages. Great price and quick shipping.
