    Pros
    + Automatic closing system works extremely well
    + Feels very sturdy even with extensions
    + Gate release mechanism is secure yet simple to use.
    + Comes with both pressure mount and screw in mounts
    + Gate opens in both directions (in & out)

    Cons
    - Lower cross bar can be a tripping hazard
    - Installation can be tricky if not thought through

    Installation
    The instructions that come with gate are simple to follow. However, I think the list of tools for installation should also include a rubber mallet or a hammer. As other reviewers have pointed out removing the lower plastic plugs can be difficult. The way I removed the plugs was to pry out the plugs with a flat head screw driver just a little (as shown in the instructions). I then removed the plug by positioning the head of the screw driver under the exposed lip of the plug and gently tapped it with a rubber mallet (similar motion to chiseling wood). Be sure to use a wide flat head screw driver and tap, don't hammer. My plugs refused to come out only by prying but popped out with little effort when using the screwdriver/mallet method. I also used the rubber mallet to install the extension bars onto the extension plugs. The rest of the installation took all of 5 minutes.

    Use
    The auto close feature of this gate is terrific. The simplicity of the design makes it pretty much fool proof.

    The latch mechanism is also excellent. Simply unlatch with your thumb, lift, and push or pull. The amount of force to open the gate is mildly stiff but any adult should be able to easily operate this gate. When allowed to slam this gate is quite noisey. If your child is extremely sensitive to noise when sleeping this gate is nearly impossible to close completely silently but the noise is minimal with a little effort.

    The mounting system and gate feels very solid. Even as an adult I find that yanking on it creates very little flex.

    My wife purchased three of these gates. The assembly process requires you to remove four plugs from the corners of the gate, the top two are not an issue, but the bottom two are not the same story. With some prying I was able to the the plugs out of two of the three, but was not able to remove the plugs from the third. Even spraying WD-40 on the plugs was not enough to get them out. It strikes me as odd that these plugs are even located in the gate when you open the box anyways as they could be packaged with the rest of the assembly items. If the manufacturer insists on including them in the gate for shipment, the plug should at least be modified so you can get enough leverage to pull them out. For [$] it should be pretty easy to get together.Can't recommend due to the hassle of assembly.

              Looking for heavy duty gate to block off downstairs. Works wonderfully and easy to install. Compared to the gate we bought years ago this one is a lot more sturdy and makes our old one seems flimsy.

              Comments about Munchkin 1001332 Protect By Munchkin Auto Close Metal Baby Gate:

              Purchased two of these gates to keep dogs in the kitchen while we are out of the house. Both broke within the first few months. The one that is used the most had the latch stick so you couldn't open it unless you pried it with a butter knife. The latch eventually broke off (thankfully) but then the entire swinging portion of the gate broke, so now that whole part comes off. We can still use it but if anyone isn't familiar with it and tried to pull it up there is no stop so they end up holding the entire gate. Super annoying. The other one broke as well and was hardly ever used. Wrote the company twice, no response. We did love the auto close function but will not be replacing this with the same ones. For the price is expect much more in terms of quality and longevity.

                      This hate is used in the step down hallway entrance. This gate works well. A key feature being that the center opens up like a door. You do not have to take the entire gate down or climb over to go through the entrance. This gate also gives the option to be pressure mounted or bolt mounted to the wall. We use pressure as one side is Sheetrock and the other side is a solid wood banister.

                        This is by far the best gate we have had, the others were flimsy and would fall down when my 18 month old would try and climb it, this one is worth the buy. We set it up the same day, its easy to install and works its purpose, it keeps our dog in the other room and keeps my toddler from trying to poke and chase the dog. We plan on buying a few more.

                        The gate does is job to keep my baby in a safe area but it is very tricky to open the gate, especially because it is installed at the top of my staircase. The latch is hard to pull back and lift to open when I need to get through.
