    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 use the tension mount and it is so strong my 18 month daughter stands on the door of the gate and tries to shake it and it won't budge. She is trapped safely in the room until we let her out.

            This gate was just as expected. It installed easily and functions perfectly. The only negative is that it does make a loud "clicking" sound when closing so we need to hand guide it closed when the baby is sleeping. We put this gate at the top of stairs and it is very secure even when the baby stands up and "shakes" it. We are very please with the purchase.

              These are perfect for our house. They look nice and are easy to use. We had the old, wooden gates and would step over them, which is not safe. We had those for our dogs. Now that we are having a baby soon, we knew we needed something more solid and safer. Having the swing style gate is very convenient and I love that they auto-close. i strongly recommend these to anyone.

                      We purchased these gates as a means to contain puppy from children while we go through the bites stage. They work so easily and open and shut simply. The reason for the 4 stars is that took a little while to install but after the first one second one went up quickly.

                        We put this gate in between our family room and our breakfast nook/kitchen area. It was the only gate that we found at BRU that would accomodate the wider opening. I was initially concerned about the sturdiness but our little one has been pulling up on it and it stands great with just the tension posts! Our only con would be that it's a little difficult for our 7 yr old to open because it requires you to slide the tab and lift up on the gate but she's getting used to it too!
