    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.

                The assembly instructions were poor. Instructions were in 6 languages, which is a laugh, because all they have is pictures without an explanation of what needs to be done. Very difficult to install. Couldn't get gate to close.

                  good guality easy to install. Auto close feature is great doesnt bang shut. My husband forgot we installed it ran into at night and the gate held up. Didnt bend doesnt move didnt crack. Only 4 stars because of the price. The width of the fence is small. We bought a longer fence for cheaper.

                    We use this gate at the top of our stairs and feel very comfortable relying on it. My parents recommended this gate after using it at the top and bottom of their stairs with my niece and nephew. I installed this gate by myself in about 30 minutes. The gate can be pressure mounted, but needs to be hardware mounted at the top of stair for the most secure hold. Our gate has been in place for about 6 months now. My son completely ignored it while crawling, but now that he's walking, he loves to hang on to the spindles and shake the gate in excitement, especially when he sees daddy walking upstairs. Through his shaking, the gate has never popped open or budge. This gate it pretty easy to open, even when you have your hands full with a sleeping baby. The design is simple and works well in our home. I wish we'd found this gate before the gate we use at the base of the stairs.

It's easy for the adult to lift slightly and push to open .. But hard for the child to open and exit.. I love it so much!!! It keeps my mind at ease knowing the child will not be able to knock down the product Bec it's secured into the wall with screws and won't be able to fall down the stairs... Great product !!!!
