    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.

      We're using this in a hallway to prevent our crawler from going down the staircase. Very strong and durable. Love how the gate automatically closes and latches behind you. Would definitely get more if the need is there!

                The gate is used to keep a kuvasz puppy out of areas where she really should not be going in the house, like the basement. It's really sturdy and has been holding up pretty well for her size. If you're worried about a large puppy or breed of dog getting out and into somewhere they shouldn't be, this is the gate for you.

                Love this gate! It looks very nice and has a wider opening than many of the other pressure-mount gates like it. I love the auto-close feature, too! The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because unless you have it set up perfectly straight and square, the auto-close feature might not work properly, and it can take some elbow grease to get it to work correctly and stay working correctly.
