Rated 4 out of 5 by Baileysman Did what it was bought for but...
The five panel gate met its nine week old Husky puppy user and the gate won, but the pup got his licks in. This pup had previously beaten the efforts of another gate by climbing over. This gate, so far, has not been defeated BUT it just might be because of some construction shortcuts,
We also have two adult dogs and two cats who can jump over it with no problem which is what we wanted. Problem is that one of the adult dogs hit the gate on a jump and one of the top rails separated slightly from the side rail. It is only a round pin and hole mating. It was knocked loose. It went right back together but a dab of wood glue, had it been used in the construction, would have prevented the problem.
Another thing, not noted in the info posted for the gate is that the package contains metal reinforcing brackets and mounting screws which you bend to fit the gate configuration you need. This is fine if you will always be using one shape but in our use, we have a daytime and a nighttime configuration. It is very easy to lift the gate and reconfigure it for use in another area but we can not use these reinforcing brackets or else we are stuck with only one configuration. For us that is not a problem but for others it may limit the gates usefulness.
Overall we can recommend this gate for use with smaller puppies but for adult dogs it would be questionable. Hence a Four star rating. You will have to see if your use fits with the gates height and construction.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jackie27 Quite flimsy
The gate pretty much fell apart immediately after I took it out of the box but it was too much trouble to return so I glued it back together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChiMomma3 works great for my needs
I have small dogs and it is great for temporary blocking areas and on the stairs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cozlover Somewhat serves the purpose
Product came fully assembled. It is light but not as sturdy as I expected. The mounting brackets and rail brackets are too wide, allowing to much play, had to bend inward to make work.Screws in the hinges must have been pressed in, as when you try to remove them, they are bent and very difficult to get out. One of my sections composed of several pickets that were of poor quality, having burs and splinters. After spending a couple hours sanding and adjusting, I think it will now work. Only buy if you have some tools and skills to work on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debo Easy walk over!
LOVE LOVE this gate! It is perfect for my little dog and my big opening from the kitchen to the living room. She can't jump it and it keeps her out of there when I am not at home. It's the best!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jean777 Very pleased with our gate!
We are very pleased with our free standing gate! We use it across one end of the kitchen to keep our dog (a Shih-tzu) from constantly getting under foot while we're using the kitchen. It's well made, easy to set up and well worth the money! Also, it arrived quicker than we expected. I highly recommend it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by jessie Not sturdy
The gate is a good size for me and my toddlers to walk over but it is not very sturdy and we have had to steady it with other things and are constantly re-positioning. Our dog weights 4 lbs and can push right past it
