great gate. easy to install with just a few tools.
January 22, 2014
the opening that it went into was 42 1/2 inch which was just over the limit of what the gate would fit but since it was at the top of the stairs, i was able to fit a 1 x 4 x 12 inch board, (a piece long enough to span the gap above the base board up to about 6 inch above the top screw hole in the gate), against the wall and then mounted the gate to that. it fit perfect and the extra support of the board made it more stable.
Pros:gate can be made to swing in either direction.
Cons:was not quite as wide as i needed but i was able to work around that with the addition of a 1 x 4 x 12 board mounted to the wall.
