    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:

          It was great to have a gate that didn't have to be drilled into the walls and leave permanent damage, however, after about two weeks of use, a visitor in the house tried to open the gate and it just fell down. To me, that didn't seem safe considering my baby will probably be standing and pulling on the gate. I also found this gate to be very inconvenient when used in front of steps.

          Works well. Easy to install except that securing the bottom is a little difficult.
          It opens both ways which is really nice.
          It slams quite hard if you don't close it by hand. This makes it extremely loud. Extremely, as in don't let it slam anywhere near a sleeping baby or it will startle them awake. Even if you close it softly there is a loud click as the magnet(?) catches.
          That being said it is secure and does its job of keeping kids and dogs in place.

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

              We used this gate at my parent's house between their two living room doorways. I like the gate, because it doesn't require putting any holes in the walls, which is good because we won't always need a gate, as my baby gets older. I don't actually like the automatic-close feature, because the gate I got for my house does not automatically close and that is better for the times when the baby isn't around or when she is sleeping. By automatically closing, then you always have to open it; you can't just leave it open if you're coming right back through.

              Overall, I think it's a good product, but I would recommend getting one that doesn't automatically close.

              Got this gate because it was simple and the price. It works well. I keep it at the bottom of my staircase in hopes to keep my small dog (10 lbs) out of the playroom. Well she is small enough and smart enough to get through the bars. Not a huge deal but defeats the purpose right now since my baby is only 2 months old. It is a little hard to open once unlocked/unhinged. (It doesn't have a smooth swing it's more stiff but I believe it is intended to be this way.) over all nice gate for the price.

                It's great for keeping my 1 y/o out of the animal area where I keep the dogs food and water. Problem is I ordered 2 and 1 came with vital pieces missing. The plug for the end piece that adjusts to fit the opening was missing right out of the box. I managed to jerry-rig it to work but the spring loaded top lock was also broken right out of the box. Since I ordered it online I can't be bothered to return it for a new one. Works ok but had to give it 3 stars due to the broken/missing pieces.
