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.
I bought two of these pet gates for my laundry room and hallway. They are very heavy and look really nice. I really like that they swing closed and latch once you walk through. They are tall enough that they keep my dog contained and just short enough that my old cat can still jump over.
I purchased two of these gates for the top and bottom of my stairs for a six-week visit from my toddler nephews. When putting the gates up, I was disappointed because the directions said that cups "must" be screwed into the walls when using the gate at the top of the stairs because I didn't want to damage my walls for just six weeks of use. I decided to try to install without screwing in the support cups, and it worked great. I checked the stability of the gates daily, and never once in the six weeks did I need to re-tighten them. They were fairly easy to install, though it's a little awkward. The opening in the gate is narrow, but it was only awkward when stepping through the top gate to go down the stairs, though it wasn't a major issue. The latch was easy enough to do one-handed, and my three-year-old nephew couldn't figure out how to get through. I will mention, though, that my friend's daughter, who is 4.5 years old, easily learned to open the gate when fully latched. If I were using them long-term, I might have splurged for nicer-looking gates, but they did the job well for us. My walls were not damaged when I took them down, though there was a faint smudge on the paint, which I could live with.
I recieved my gate in a timely manner. It is well made. I was worried at first because the doorway I'm using it in has a baseboard at the bottom, making the fit difficult, but I was able to unscrew the bottom screw, push the sides tight against the baseboard on each side and then tighten the screw until it was a firm fit, then I "fanned" the top out until it was tight against the sides of the doorway and tightened the screw till it was a tight fit as well.. This made it secure, along with cross legs, so that my pug puppy can't push it out of the way. No more sneaking into the livingroom to make a deposit for him. Thank you Overstock.
I bought this to use to keep my Greyhound in my office while I am away from the house. I have another gate that is made by Safety 1st - the S1st gate is a great deal more sturdy and it remembers the position you put it in so that you do not have to resize it every time. This gate is easy to take down but it does not remember the position so you have to size it up each time. It is not difficult to put up but you will probably need two hands and maybe a foot.
Overall, it is a good gate for the price. It works well for what I need it. It is not the best gate around but it what I needed.
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!
Very happy with the quality of the gate. Do not find it hard to open as some commenters have noted. The only issue we have is that we had to mount it above baseboard because it isn't flat (there may be a way to do this that we could not figure out). This forces you to lift your feet about 4 inches to walk over gate. I make sure there is a night lite on in the area so I don't trip over it in the middle of the night. Otherwise, it has done its job and looks like the picture.
I am using this gate every day to separate my dog and my grandson, though never are very happy about that. This gate stays in place, even with my grandson pulling himself up on it. Would definitely recommend this for anyone with a large doorway or opening that doesn't want to use screws to hold it up. Holds in place with pressure bars.
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.
This is a great gate... the problem I had though is I have a 6 lb Chiahauhau puppy that actually sqeezed through the slates... so if you have a little guy I would not reccomend this gate but the qualilty is great otherwise.
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!
I bought this as a set with the Steel Extra Wide Pet Gate. Took out a set of interior french doors to open up a room, but still allowing to keep our animals blocked from running the entire house while we are not at home. Very Durable. Love the look.
