    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:

      We have this gate to block off our kitchen from the living room. Our doorway is an oddball size, and we had tried two gates previous to this one, and neither of them worked out. This one is easy to install, works great, and looks nice! Very happy with this purchase!! Will definitely be getting another for our other room.

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

          I got this gate because I wanted a pressure gate for the bottom of the stairs, you know, something easy to set up. It said easy installation right on the box, so I thought I'd be good to go. My staircase is kind of wide, so I needed to add the extensions in. To do so, you need to remove 4 plugs on each of four corners on the gate. The instructions say to use a flathead screwdriver. The first one was very difficult to remove, but manageable. I was able to get the next two very easily. I think that's how all of them are supposed to go. And the last one...well it BROKE my screwdriver. I have another one, so I kept trying. I've almost destroyed the plug (which will have to go back in after installing the extensions), and I've almost ruined the steel gate and other screwdriver trying to pry it out. It's still stuck in there. I wonder how I'm supposed to get the plug back in the hole if I'm ever able to get it out. Maybe the gate is wonderful once put together, but I don't think I'll ever find out. I'm going to give it one more go tonight, but I seriously doubt this thing will work out. I will likely return this tomorrow.

          Got the gate for the bottom of the staircase. Haven't had to use it yet as baby hasn't started crawling yet. Tested it out and seemed simple enough to assemble and set up. Love that it has a wrench to help tighten the gate into place if you are just using tension to hold it into place.

            We purchased this item because our ten month old son kept coming in the kitchen and going in the pantry and just throwing everything on the floor. My husband installed it in less then a half hour and I didn't have to worry about our boy messing up the pantry anymore. Very easy to use and looks nice in our hallway.

                  We purchased this gate prior to the baby being born, to use to keep the dog out of the bedroom wing of our house. We have it set up in a hallway where it works perfectly and isn't even an eyesore. We will be getting more of these gates to use all over the house as soon as the baby is mobile. Works great, easy to set up, very sturdy, easy to maneuver, looks good!

                          This baby gate is actually being used to keep our little mini dachshund out of the nursery (while being able to keep the door to the nursery open).

                          Works great! The only thing I don't particularly like is the gate loudly "slams" shut if you don't guide it shut with your hand... which can be a little more challenging if you have your hands full of baby!
