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 purchased this when my 10 month old started becoming more active. We have an open staircase leading to the basement and needed to ensure she wouldn't be able to fall down the stairs. I love this safety gate! It has a pretty simple design and looks nice in our home. It's easy to set up. And my favorite feature is the auto close gate, so handy if you're carrying something and going through the gate. It takes a little strength to pull the gate up and open, but I guess that's the point!

    Easily installation. Does it's job. Just wish it didn't bang so loud when it auto shuts (made of metal). Also the lock could be easier to open but then again it keeps the kids from opening it!

    Comments about Munchkin 1001332 Protect By Munchkin 29.5-38 inch Auto Close Metal Baby Gate:

    We used it because we have 3 big dogs that we wanted to keep out of the living room. It meant we always had a clean room with no dog hair and could put the baby on the floor without worrying he'd get trampled. Good height, the dogs didn't try too hard to jump it. The hinge side isn't secure, so it required a level of finesse to open each time or you'd pull the whole gate off the doorway- annoying until you got the technique. 5 year old used it just fine.

        Difficult and hard to put together. Bolts don't screw into the actually gate making it unsturdy. Instructions say the gap will close when properly put together but ot still does not. Too expensive for abproduct that doesn't work. Ot can barely keep a small puppy in the kitchen, it will not work for a baby or toddler.

          I have 3 kids under 3 - one year old twins toddling around and a 2.5 year old. I bought this product to block off a hallway so that everyone could stay in a visual area during play time. It works great for the twins butmy 2.5 year old is able to open it and get through. If you're getting it for older kids it may not be the best. I like that it automatically closes but would like an option to leave it locked open also. Overall good.

            This is a wonderful quality babygate for a great price. It's very secure using the pressure mount setting so I don't even have to drill it in, although that's an option with this gate as well if you prefer to mount it that way.
