    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 bought this gate to use at the bottom of the stairs for both our 1 year old and our 2 dachshunds. It's pressure mounted. We've knocked it around a few times but it has taken it all. It's a great gate with a wide enough pass for mom and baby to go through comfortably.

          Happy with this product as it was easy for my husband to install between two different rooms and on one of our staircases. And especially love that it does not require any hardware installation into any of our walls or door jams:)
          Love that it closes on it's own once you've opened it and gone through the gate but just wish in an ideal world that the closure was a little more quite:)

              These gates were great at first, then over time opening and closing the gates began to wear them out, one of the two we purchased broke. I decided to give them a second chance and purchased two more as I needed a third gate, now another has broken. The pivot point of the gate is plastic and has completely broken off, on another gate the spring has fallen out but I was able to repair that one. I would not recommend these at all.

                            This was an awful gate from when I first took it out of the box. I bought two of these gates. In order to put the extensions in, you have to pop out these little plastic pieces, and in BOTH gates, the bottom ones were stuck. It tells you to pry them with a screwdriver, but they were so stuck that the plastic things actually broke instead. I managed to get them out on the second one, and then after putting the extensions in, on of them wouldn't go in all the way in the bottom, and then the plastic thing wouldn't go back in all the way either. And those were only the problems with installing it.
                            After I finally go it installed, it was just such a pain to open.the button was hard to push, you had to jiggle the door to get it open. It was just awful. I don't know how this got as many decent reviews as it did.

                            I returned it and got the Summer Infant Multi-Use Deco Extra Tall Walk-Thru Gate. I would definitely recommend that one instead if you're looking for a good gate.

                                Use the gate at the stair way openings. Can be annoying open when your hands are full. Gate is very sturdy and useful. Will def keep the baby from going anywhere they arent supposed to.
