I had seen this gate before at a relatives. It works great and is easy to install. You cannot beat the auto close feature. Worth every penny!
Very solid gate

This was the Munchkin gate I purchased, and got this model specifically to match the one already installed. There is a newer model from what I can tell out now as well. The gate functions great, and installation is not very difficult. The only negative is that this 2nd one is tight at the bottom, which does not allow it to fully close by itself. It still closes at the top, which is secure enough. That should tell you a lot about how solid this gate is.I tried adjusting it several times but still cannot get the bottom just right and keep the correct gap at the top. The instructions are no help here as they are all visual and help with installation, but don't mention any adjustment. I am hoping it will break itself in given time.
  • Solid construction. Good locking mechanism. Easy install.
Best Uses
  • Doorways. I would recommend something lighter for stairs as this closes with force. For our stairs we purchased gates that were made to mount on bannisters.
  • Adjustment after install is poor. Takes some practice to get good at opening. You may also want a stool or something to prop it open when not in use, or it will close by itself.
Best gate

Best gate ever. You have to physically lift it up and over the ledge making it hard or impossible for young kids and it closes reliably by itself. I've had lots of gates but this is the best self closing gate ever. Just bought another one

instructions are like playing charades! The gate is nice looking and sturdy. I had to wait to install a few weeks till my puppies head grew large enough to not get stuck in the bars though. LOVE IT!
  • they could have had an instuction manual with words in addition to the nice drawings
