These fit perfectly in the doorways of my home despite them being uneven because the house is old. I was very pleased with the quality and the ease of setting them up. They keep my dog out of the areas of the house where he is not allowed with no problem.
We bought this for our back deck to keep the dogs in the yard. We'd previously used a stand-up wooden pet gate, but high winds knocked it down the steps several times and it was looking pretty sorry. This one is now installed across the top of the deck stairs. It looks fantastic and an improvement on the low one we had to step over. The gate opens and closes easily with two hands.
This product is easy to use and a great value! I set both up myself in about 45 minutes, so only one person is necessary. The first one always takes longer though. LOL. We bought this product to confine our 3 month old cocker spaniel to the kitchen while we were away, but it really can take a lot of push/pull force. We had an adult friend forget the gates were there and banged right into one, and it didn't even move! And no, we did not use the screws, just the bumpers provided.
1) Be sure your puppy's head is larger than 4" wide at the ear before you buy this gate, otherwise they will be able to fit through the bars and negate the purchase until they grow.
2) Follow the instructions and secure the bottom of the gate first. It doesn't seem intuitive, but I wasted about 10 minutes not following the instructions and had to loosen everything and start over.
3) DO NOT overly tighten the top of the gate, you can crack the locking mechanism or make the door too tight to open or close. Simply tighten the top until you see that your gate door will swing open and closed freely. Learn from my mistake, but even if you crack the top locking mechanism like I did, good news is, it still works perfectly! These gates are strong. :0)
4) Be absolutely sure your gate is strait. It will be more sturdy the straighter it is.
These gates are very, very, VERY nice! The only bad thing I can say is that the screws/hardware they include is a joke, the screws weren't even long enough to drill through the drywall....so we replaced them with long 3" screws so that they would hit studs.....with the exception of the original screws this gate is VERY sturdy! I have one at the top of my stairs and one gating off my dining/kitchen area....they are so handy and are soooo much better than any other gates I've tried. They are loud when they click shut, but who cares when you don't even have to try and latch them...it latches like a dream all on its own :) These are great for my dogs (5 lbs and 12lbs....they are tall enough to be great for big dogs too!), and also will be great when we have children!
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.
I wanted a non-permanent metal gate to mount in a doorway upon certain occasions to contain two small dogs. Checking dimensions of the opening size between the gate's spindles, I thought this gate would be a solution. Unfortunately and to my surprise, the dogs' size still turned out to be small enough to squeeze through. BUT - I liked the ease of installation/removal, good construction, the availability of having a gate when needed. So, I purchased a panel of metal mesh cut to fit the gate, affixed it to the gate, and solved the problem of "squeeze through space." So - overall the gate is great, and with a little added ingenuity I made it fit my needs.
Came quickly and I installed it myself without my husband or any tools! We were using a wooden baby gate to keep the dogs out of our living room and away from the front door where they would bark at every passing person or car. It was tacky! This gate is very classy looking and easy to operate. The gate portion swings both ways if you remove the stay. The finish is bronzy brown color. It's beautiful. I am so happy!
I bought this gate to use at the top of my stairway. I had a regular wall to wall gate, but the lip on the floor before going down made it difficult for my 2 year old to get down and I was afraid of tripping on it with my 2 month in tow. This gate was exactly what I needed and has the added benefit of being a coral when I need it.
This retractable gate was the perfect solution for the stairs where the floor plan will not accommodate any traditional metal gate. The fabric material seems strong enough to protect our baby from the stairs. I give 4 stars because the retractable part is hard to pull out, I need both hands.
I needed a walk through gate to keep my news puppies out of the cat box, there is a wider space between the two bars under the lock handle so I put a piece of cardboard on both sides of the bars and taped it with duck tape so they could not squeeze through. It has worked well for me. the lower pieces that are suppose to grip the wall don't really secure it very well. If you bump it with your foot the gate will swing forward away from it's position, so I try to keep an eye on that. I have to use two hands to push in the red button and slide the handle over to make the gate open. I do not have a strong grip in my hands anymore.
I bought this for it's wide opening. It swings both ways and will stay open on it's own if opened far enough (all the way). It is shorter than other gates I've bought/used in the past. It could be a few more inches taller. I use it to keep my 3 large dogs out of certain rooms, without having to close the rooms off.
I got this gate 6 months ago to use when my Granddaughter is over. It is Easy to install and use. No more jumping over gates... The swing motion of the door make going thru the gate a breeze. Strong, sturdy and easy to use, it have it all!
