I bought 2 of these gates several years ago for my rambunctious shepherd. We have thick wooden doorways so these gates have stayed put since day one because they’re very sturdy. Installation wasn’t easy because everything has to line up perfectly and it’s best if doorways are perfectly level (plumb), but because my house was built in the 50’s, our doorways are slightly off so we had to make some slight adjustments to the gates. I’m glad we had that option, otherwise, we would’ve had to return them. It’s best to use longer screws than the ones provided with these gates to ensure a secure hold for larger heavier dogs. The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because the button latches are pointless and the gates only swing one way. The button latches aren’t needed because the gate can be opened by simply pulling it up and swinging it open without even touching the latch. This actually comes in handy sometimes, though, if your hands are full because I can lift it open with my foot, however, my dog can also lift it open on occasion if he’s desperately trying to reach a toy he accidentally kicked into the other room. I should’ve installed them a little closer to the floor but I was afraid he would jump over them since he’s so tall. Overall, it does exactly what it was intended for and I’m very satisfied with this purchase.
Gate was easy to assemble. Use it at the bottom of our stairs. Lightweight so may not be suitable for big or aggressive dogs.
The gate was easy to install and works fairly well! Only problem I’ve notice is that the bottom doesn’t latch very well so I’ve had to push it in until I clicks into place. Overall not bad though!
This pet gate is well thought out, well manufacture and easy to adjust and to install. Once in place, It is very simple to operate.
Love it!!! The templates provided make for perfect easy installation!!
I like everything about this gate *except* the latch mechanism. It can require a bit of force to open because the tab that you press down on is so small and close to the latch; I can manage it but, say, if you have arthritis, it could be difficult. Also, it's mostly plastic and the springs on the inside of it keep popping out of place. When that happens, the door becomes almost impossible to open (you have to push down one of the little lock thingies with your finger to slide the door out) and can only be fixed by unscrewing the whole thing from the wall and putting it back together. If they'd just make the latch mechanism sturdier and use a larger handle so you can get more leverage, it would be perfect. The pros: the size is perfect, it was easy to install, and it keeps my 70-lb jumpy boy away from the cat litter.
Got a white gate instead of this gate - need refunds... Please advise me what to do with the return address and postage. THanks, Lesa
Extremely difficult to put together - you wouldn't think it would be difficult to put a gate together but it's extremely challenging.
Our dog is getting old and if we don’t help her down the stairs to our basement she is likely to fall. This gate works great to keep her from heading down on her own.
If you have a strong dog or a big dog .. this gate won’t work !!! Since I put this gate up it only kept the dog in 1x !!! It got busted open every time ! This last time it totally came apart and when I say came apart .. I mean came apart in pieces with the locks intact !!!
