This gate works well for why we bought it. We have a built in desk in the kitchen and we wanted to fence off the wires and cords underneath the desk. It is a small space only just under 25 inches tall just enough room for your legs and 36 inches wide, so we needed something really short. We also have very nice wood and did not want to drill into it. This gate is the perfect size for this application. It is also pressure so easy install and no drilling into our maple! :-)

I have to say that i feel that some of the reviewers may have neglected to read the instructions. Which is ridiculous because there are all of 4 sentences come on people. Once up this gate is very very tightly in place. If you can knock it over with out like 80 lbs or so of force then you did it wrong go back and read the 4 sentences again or for the first time. One could probably break through the plastic easier but again I cannot see a child being able to do that.

My only criticism would be that the bar that is used to keep the pressure gate in place while a very effective design could be a potential hazard. The hardware is metal and while not super sharp it is also not completely covered. If a child were standing some distance away such that they fell and their face was at that exact height then it would probably hurt. I suppose if they landed just right it could hit their temple and in theory kill a child. However, that being said it would be very unlikely. If your child only has access to one side this is completely a mute point. I need to have the bar facing out because I need to be able to put it in and take it out and there is not enough clearance on top to get my arm through to the other side but if that is not an issue for you great.

In short: This gate has its place in the world of fencing I think it is a very good gate. However people need to assess their needs and use discretion to be sure it is a fit for their project. The manufacturer North States are very helpful I called them asking a question about another product and they were great although their number does not seem to be on the packaging for this product so here it is 763-486-1754. Their website isn't bad either www.northstatesind.com

Pros:
-Great if you have to fence off a small opening
-very effective pressure system
-(not an issue for me but i measured just for you) will fit over standard base so you could mount it flush to the floor (the first set of pressure feet are about 3.75 inches from the bottom.
-fairly good looking
-easy to step over even for short people
-fits super tight
-quick and easy install
-no drilling
-seems to have good customer service

Cons:
-short so if your need to fence off an area your kids need to be short a tall three year old might be able to get over this. Or if they are creative like stacking things.
-the bar on one side could be a potential hazard
-the plastic isn't super strong and could be broken with enough direct force (maybe 50 ish lbs and a temper?) (in all fairness we all may expect these gates to withstand toddlers kicking and swinging on them but non of them are really rated over 50 ever look at the fine print even the metal ones)
-should never be used at the top of stairs!

Needed a movable barrier for kitchen area and other doorways. This was light and seemed like the way to go. Unfortunately, the light weight was indicative of the quality. Is this balsa wood? Cannot tighten it enough for a good fit in the doorways. When you do tighten it, you risk breaking the poorly designed locking mechanism or even snapping the wood. Returned this 10 minutes after getting it home. Others have mentioned using as a barrier underneath a desk to prevent access to cables. Great suggestion and might be functional for that, but do not count on this flimsy thing for blocking doorway access even if it did somehow fit perfectly.

          Comments about North States Industries Clear Choice Gate:

          I don't know how ANYONE got this to work. We tried it in 3 different homes, multiple walls and doorways, six different people. It worked NOWHERE. And it is very frustrating because the bar keeps falling while you try to adjust the tension. We even tried putting in shims to even up the four pads as well as putting it in at an angle to get the exact width. It just will not go in or stay in place.

              After multiple attempts to restrain puppy in one area,this is the answer. Dog ate thru plastic gates and could climb other type gates and could squeeze thru openings in metal gate due to her tiny size. Because of 0ne piece clear sheet she could not bite or climb I was finally able to keep her in one area.
              This gate has been a godsend.

                  Comments about North States Industries Clear Choice Gate:

                  In this case, you get what you pay for. This gate is as cheap as they come, I guess I shouldn't be complaining because I should have known better- but this gate is bad. It is nearly impossible to open/move with a baby in your arms. You do so by pulling up on the wood bar that keeps the tension, however every single time you do so, both pieces collapse onto each other, fall into 2 pieces and then you have to fight with the gate trying to get it back on track to use again. Getting it back on track once it's fallen into 2 pieces is a gigantic pain, so have fun with that. When putting the gate up, you need to position it the proper distance between the walls and then push down on the bar to enact the tension. As you are doing this you can hear the wood cracking and stressing, and you are almost certain to pinch your finger on the metal clasp that secures the bar down. This gate could work for someone who will never ever move it, but for all others, pony up the extra $ and get a better gate. Now I have to go back and spend more $ on a good gate when I should have just done it right off the bat and saved myself some frustration.

                    We bought this gate for our kitchen doorway not wanting to spend a lot but still want it looking half decent. So disappointed! No matter what we tried it does not fit correctly. If we make it tight, you can hear the wood splintering, if we loosen it even one rung, all four pads are no where near the walls! We will be spending the extra money and getting one that works.
