    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 Baby Gate:

        I bought this gate about a year ago. I used it at the bottom of my stairs to gate off my dogs. The gate fit for the most part, but what they didn't tell you is likely you will need a extender unless you have a small door you want to gate. Aesthetically pleasing but if you are gating more than a pantry door get the extender.

        Comments about Munchkin 1001332 Munchkin Protect Auto Close Metal Baby Gate:

        I've had this gate for about a month now, and I love it! My one year old daughter just finally started crawling last month, so this gate has come in very handy, as she is all over the place now! I am able to make sure she is safely contained where I want her to be with this gate. Some say that the instructions were hard to understand, but we were able to install the gate without even reading them. It was very easy. This gate is very sturdy and stays in place. I love the wide opening, and how easy it is for me to open and close (but not easy enough for my daughter to!). Munchkin always has high quality products, and this gate did not disappoint! I am thinking about getting another one!

        Comments about Munchkin 1001332 Munchkin Protect Auto Close Metal Baby Gate:

        This swing open, automatic closing gate is a major upgrade from the standard baby gate we used to fight with. We purchased 2 and are very happy with the ease of use. My husband assembled and installed both within 20 minutes. I love that they stay put, unlike our last gates that moved and marked up the painted door frames. Not to mention we used to climb over them, sometimes with an armfull.

        The only negative I can find with this gate, is there is one close to my toddler's room, and they are a little loud when self-closing. He is a light sleeper so I had to master closing it slowly to avoid the loud catching noise it makes when shutting. Also, it might be nice to have a way to keep the gate open for times when my son is in bed and I could just walk through without opening the gate.

        Bought while on sale, and worth the price - Very happy with this purchase! I would recommend this gate.

        Comments about Munchkin 1001332 Munchkin Protect Auto Close Metal Baby Gate:

        We are so thankful to have found this gate & love some of the great features. -We have three kids under five & two dogs that need to be prevented from going upstairs. This gate is easy enough for my oldest to open, but with the "easy close" system we no longer have to worry about the baby or the dogs sneaking up the stairs after big brothers headed up! -There is a large walk-through opening which allows a mom to carry laundry baskets or bulky items without getting stuck on the gate. -There are several options on how to mount. We chose the pressure mount system since we are renting and do not want to drill holes in the wall. Works great! -Sturdy metal frame. Kids press on it & it stays in spot! -Easy to install. Some reviews have mentioned problems with instructions. My husband didn't even look at & had no problem installing! Would love to have another auto close gate in the house! It's great for a family with children who often "forget" to close the gate, no more worries!
