    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.

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

      I have a 2 month old, and even though he isn't crawling or walking yet, this gate is perfect for keeping our 120lb Rottweiler in the kitchen and out of the living room. He sheds so much and I don't want him shedding all over the room where our little one plays. Love this gate - it is so easy to install and use. We'll be getting another one in the future to block off the stairs!

            I have two of these gates. One is in the doorway to the kitchen the second is between our staircase banister and our wall ( it blocks the door to outside and the steps upstairs ). I love the auto closing part. The gate is easy to operate and has closed every time we've used it. I highly recommend this gate!

                          When you open the box don't think the gate is broken already. It looks like the bar is bent and won't work. Just follow the directions and it will be fine once installed. Very easy to use. Might get more as baby gets older.

                                Love this gate!! We put it up in the baby's door way to keep the dogs out of her room. It's easy to open (for adults) and retracts after you walk through. I love not having to worry about the dogs running in after me. Also, we can still close her bedroom door which is a plus. Also, easy to assemble.
