I purchased the gate for the home of my friend. My dog, Gidget, and I spend a lot of time over there and wanted to make sure she could not leave the deck and get into the lake or out in the woods chasing squirrels. The gate is easy to open and close for a human and virtually impossible for a dog. I highly recommend it and feel it was money well spent!
Latch is too difficult to use properly

The gate was more cost than others with a decent review, but was extremely hard to line up everything so the latch would work. Like other reviews the latch is hard to operate once we got it all together and one said he oils it but that is outside. Ours is at the bottom of the stair so we will not be oiling it. Disappointed because by the time you put it up, there are so many holes in the wall that you do not want to go changing it and return it, too much trouble. Overall wish we bought something different.
Looks nice, easy to install

Wish we had bought this a long time ago instead of wasting money on tension gates. Wanted something to keep my parents dogs in laundry room at night. This is perfect. It's easy to open and latches by itself.
Quinn loves her new gate

Got the gate in white to match the porch. The gate is to keep Quinn on the porch and it works perfectly. It is attractive. Some gates are eyesores on a front porch but this one is very attractive and adds to the look of the porch. Easy to open & close. We get a lot of rain here and it is humid during the summer so have used a bit of WD40 at all the hinges & the open/close latch.

Easy to use and keeps my Dane from going downstairs. No threshold and that was important in my choice.
Good for outdoor use

This gate is well constructed and for us a Godsend to have something sturdy that won't rust away, trying to keep our deck clean from muddy paws. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is a little tough to operate with just one hand.
Exactly as advertised

We needed a gate that would swing both ways, open one-handed and have no threshold. This gate is perfect and does exactly what it was supposed to do. It also fit a fairly narrow (24.5") doorway with room for a rolling stool to go through. Good purchase!
Just as expected

Arrived timely, in perfect condition, no missing parts. The gate is sturdy and fits the outdoor porch space as intended. I am pleased with the gate, the transaction and all aspects of this purchase.

Looks great outside and keeps our dogs inside. Easy to put together. Only trouble I had was that the set screws to lock the gate rails together was short but I fixed that with some screws. Overall great product!
Gate works great

My gate separates upstairs from lower level. When my family (including a baby and a dog) visit, I need a gate with no threshold and a wider opening so that my visitors wouldn't trip and could get through without turning sideways. This gate does the trick.
I went against the recommendation and used it at the top of my stairway. Instead of mounting the hardware to walls, I mounted it to 1x4's and used velcro straps to temporarily affix the 1x4/s to the railing posts. No more tripping with a baby in their arms or turning sideways to get through the gate - this gate is as wide as the stairs and works fine as long as I tighten the velcro straps tight enough. It also doesn't damage the postsMy gate separates upstairs from lower level.

I am very happy with this gate and overall purchase from Chewy!… more
