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 Protect By Munchkin 29.5-38 inch Auto Close Metal Baby Gate:

    I am so happy with this gate. I've used other baby gates that I hated at other people's houses. This is awesome. I like that the gate door swings both ways. The auto-close is nice. If I want it to stay open, I prop something in front of the gate or use some cord. I also like that I didn't have to screw it into my wall and it's still stable.

        Most gates with doors have to be screwed in. That's not a great option for renters like us. Pressure mounting has no damage and the door makes it super convenient.

            We have 2 other gates also purchased from BRU. We like them, but this one is the best! No worries about accidentally leaving it open. Easy to open for adults one-handed, impossible for my toddler. Very sturdy. Wanted same one for another area, but wider.

                Love this gate! This was a replacement for a previous gate of the same type. Given that we have this hard installed in a high traffic area, after a couple of years the auto-close feature does stop working. This is a problem as we use the gate to keep our dog out of the kitchen. It was easy to replace at Toys R Us since they seem to carry it permanently. We love the ease of hard mounting it and are very pleased with our purchase.
