    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 Gate:

      I bought these mainly because I'm short & didn't want to hurdle over a traditional baby gate. They close automatically which is nice & annoying at the same time. My son will pull himself up & stand at the gate & rattle it. It doesn't move at all, which is very nice.

        My dtr and sil have a child just learning to scoot around. As he gets more active,they will need to insure his safety, especially concerning their staircase. Having a safety gate, that attaches to the wall, will definitely give them some peace of mind.

          We purchased this for a very high-traffic hallway in our kitchen. It works great! My only issue is that it is a little hard to lift up easily with one hand. I'm hoping with more use & just getting used to it, we will adjust.

              Comments about Munchkin 1001332 Munchkin PROTECT Auto Close Metal Gate:

              This is a solid, well constructed gate, but I ended up returning it. After the door is opened, the gate door will close on its own. In doing so, the door loudly slams back into its closed position. Since the adults in the household access the kitchen may times a day, we find it annoying to have to constantly open and close the door even when our toddler is not nearby. Also, to avoid the noise, we had to hold the door to allow it to close quietly, defeating the purpose of an auto close feature. If you are more concerned about forgetting to close the door, then an auto close gate may be an option for you. But I recommend looking at other gates that auto-close more gently, if that exists. We ultimately bought a cheaper, standard metal walk through gate, with a regular door that you have to manually close. Couldn't be happier. I can leave the door open to enter and exit the kitchen without using my hands. When I'm done in the kitchen I close the door manually. Or when I plan to stay in the kitchen for a while, I'll close the door as well. Keep it simple!

                We purchased this baby gate to place at the bottom of our stairs. The instructions from the "most helpful" review on the Babies R Us website is what we reviewed before installing. This took all of 15 mins at the most to install (if that), although I only used the pressure mount option. Please do not let the bad reviews discourage you, this is a wonderful product. The door does sound loud when it automatically closes, but no problem to gently close with your hand if you have a sleeping baby in your arms.

                  This gate is fantastic! We have grandbabies crawling around and a pet that is elderly and has accidents. This gate keeps one from the other and minimizes cleanup of the pet. The gate itself is so very easy to use. Simple to install and decorative.

                      I would give this negative stars if I could. We tried to assemble it for an hour before realizing that the directions were incorrect. It was also very cheap material. When we went to return it, 3 other people had returned the same item in the last few hours at that store. I HIGHLY recommend you do not purchase this item. HUGE HEADACHE.

                      I use this gate for my puppy. After trying out different gates for my puppy with no luck, I bought this one, at a good price too, and never looked back
                      He is unable to jump over it like he did the previous ones I bought for him, and the pressure on keeps the gate from being pushed off by him. I'm not sure how good it would be for a child though, but as far as small pets go, I recommend it..
