    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.

      This gate was easy to install and makes us feel safe with little ones around! It is also simple to use. Only wish there was an option to prop the door open on occasion, but I guess that would defeat the purpose. We are renovating portions of our home when our child is not here and would love the option to leave the gate open for easy access to our second floor.

          This is the third gate that we bought to use at the top of our stairs and luckily the third time was the charm! At the top of our stairs we have a wall with a baseboard on one side and a metal railing on the other side. The first two gates we tried did not hold very well and we returned them. This gate is perfect because you can adjust each of the four pressure points to fit perfectly. We also used the included double-sided stickers on the railing to prevent those two pressure points from sliding. It does not budge at all! The walkthrough gate is great! My 4yr old twins were able to figure it out and use it without difficulty. And it always automatically shuts by itself. My little 8 month old crawler is finally safe from the stairs! :)

            I purchased this product to keep our dog out of the kids rooms. I had another gate similar to this but it didn't close automatically. This gate closes on it's own each time it's opened. I love the gate and highly recommend it.

            I was able to easily teach our 4 year old to open and close it. It would be difficult for a child 3 and under to open.

                    The baby gate is great! We love it for the most part! It was a bit tricky to put together and line up correctly but once you do it functions beautifully and is very sturdy. One suggestion is that they should build in a feature to prop the gate open when baby is asleep!
