    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 used it in front of the existing solid door, since I keep the solid door open mostly. It stops the baby from crawling out of the room and I can just watch him play/sleep without the noise from opening/closing the solid door. The only downside is I have to hold the door until it closes so it does not make a thud sound while it closes automatically. Overall it serves the purpose :)

          I really like this gate. I do have a concern that if baby isn't around that I can't just leave it propped open easily because it self closes. I went online after purchasing and there were many accessories that worked with the gate. I was able to get an adapter to have the gate fit against my wooden spinals.

            My husband had an easy time installing this gate. We have two large dogs that wont go near the gate so it keeps the babys room off limits with mow safety worries. It truly serves the purpose we need it to.

                  A friend let us borrow her gate & it worked well. So, we bought out own. They changed the nuts/bolts from metal to plastic & we like the metal better. It worked better for our situation. I called the company & they stated that the design did change & plastic was it. We had to go to a hardware store to purchase the metal nuts/bolts to set it up like we did with my friends gate. I was disappointed that we had to do that. All in all, this gate works well.

                      We bought this product to block off our doorway to the kitchen and it works perfectly. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the gate just barely fits our opening but is too big with the extenders so my husband has knocked into it and it came down. It is easy to put back up hit would work better if it had a bit more tension.

                        These fit great in my 35 inch door way openings. It was fairly easy to install and the auto close works great. I features a dual locking system, which I think will continue to make the gate usable once my son gets older. You have to slide the lock and pull up on the gate door. All in all, great buy.

                        I have not even had this gate 2 weeks and it already doesn't latch properly. It also claims to automatically close 100% of the time. This is FALSE. Twice this gate has stayed almost completely open and i had to shut it manually which would be fine if that's the kind of gate it was supposed to be. I will never recommend this gate.

                        It's a gate so it does keep my child out of the room I'm using it for. However I haven't even had it 2 weeks and it's already not latching properly when it automatically closes. Also in the description it says it automatically closes 100 percent of the time. That is not true. Twice already the gate has not shut at all. And I haven't had it 2 weeks. It stayed completely open and I had to shut it manually. to me that's not good when I'm relying on it to shut by itself. I do always make sure my gates are closed but if it says it closes then it SHOULD close
