We highly recommend this baby gate! We have no complaints. Here are some of the things we love about it...
1. It was easy to install. My husband installed two in 10-15 minutes.
2. You don't have to drill any holes in the door frame in order to install it.
3. It can swing open in either direction.
4. It is sturdy. Our son pulls up to stand at it and we are not a bit worried about it coming loose.
5. It doesn't close automatically. When our baby is asleep we can leave it open and come and go easily.
6. It is not complicated to open (after the first time or two).
7. You can tell if it is latched correctly, because the top of it will be green. If it is unlatched it is red.
I don't think you'll be disappointed with this purchase. For the record I paid full price for this review. I'm a mom who reads all 100+ reviews, so I try to leave helpful reviews as well. :)

The sole purpose of buying this one is because it's stated as easy install and being a fairly young Mom with a hubby rarely home I decided to make things easier and purchase this one.
It is truly is SIMPLE to install and takes 5-10 minutes tops. Someone left a review that stated that the door wont shut because it's too short to reach the latch. Nooooo.. When you tighten the pressure mount you had one side over more and if you loosen that one mount before getting it tight that brings the door closer to the latch and you know when it's right because the red turns green and tighten the other side. Very simple and a simple error that takes seconds to correct.. I promise.. I'm the idiot who can't put much of anything together and had this up in minutes so if I can do it anyone can. You don't have to screw holes in the wall, it's all pressure mounted and takes minutes to set up. You don't have to put anything together unless you need to add the extension which looks easy. You just place the mounts in, no tools needed and tighten to the wall. It is heavy duty white metal besides the latch parts and parts to connect the extension. I have never owned a gate but it seems super sturdy, I didn't use the extension as we have a super narrow door frame that this went in. We have an older home and this went on my sons entrance to his room which is more narrow then any room in the home including the bathroom. It's probably the length of a lot of closet doors but measures 29". It says for entrances 28" plus but we had a few inches to spare so it may fit 27" frames but I would go by the measurements of 28" inches plus in the description to be sure. I read a couple reviews that states hard to open but this wasn't an issue at all for me. Days I have carpal tunnel I can still open it fine so I assume a few got bad mechanisms or they recently fixed the issue.
Door can swing both ways
It's super easy to walk through, very large opening compared to others I've seen online. (I enclosed a picture, sorry about the mess) others seems crazy tight and that's a huge positive for me with this gate. It's very easy to walk through. You only lose about 2 inches from your entrance unlike most.
Easy to install.
Easy to open with one hand.
Seems sturdy and durable.
Pressure mount, no tools needed and no damage to door frames.
Price is higher then others. I paid $45 and AlumiGogo went up on the price by $5 in one week. Update: It's back down again.
Door doesn't swing shut
Baby doesn't like it so far which I'm sure would be the same with any gates but we only use it when necessary .. 😳
I have no other gates to compare this one to but all in all I'm super pleased with it and would definitely buy this one again. :)

Nice quality, great price - hightly recommend this gate
Nice quality. Sturdy. I am pretty clueless when it comes to setting things up and putting things together but this couldn't have been easier. When unpackaging the gate, read the red packaging by the gate handle that says to cut that particular zip tie last. This is to ensure you get an even, secure fit and that the gate will latch correctly. You can not beat the price of this gate. We use a gate to keep our little dog in our bathroom at night and have been stepping over one of those "other" kind of baby gates that don't have a door. Wish I would have found this gate a long time ago! So much easier now.

Solid, durable and well built!
This is a great walk thru gate! The quality and craftsmanship are outstanding. Solid and durable this thing should last for years. It fit snug within my door jam and was very easy to assemble with a minimal amount of parts. Took all of five minutes and it was up and installed in my doorway. My doorway is 30 inches wide so it fit right out of the box with its adjustable “stops”. However, extensionss are provided if you have an over sized doorway. Another nice feature is the gate can swing both ways or you could adjust it to open one way or the other. I highly recommend this gate as you’d be hard pressed to find one better for the money. Great value!

I really like these! Easy to open with one hand, easy to slam shut behind you. We live in a hundred year old house and the doorways are slightly crooked. The old cheap gates we had got destroyed by our toddler leaning on them and since they were already crooked in the doorway, they didn't last too long. These are holding up very well and I definitely recommend them! Great price for the quality and easy to install. I'm sure they will last a long time for us. Thanks!

Easy installation, sturdy and prettty!
My husband had these up in no time! They look great with our decor and are easy to use. We have only had them up for a short time but so far I would recommend these.

So happy I decided on this baby gate!
This gate is wonderful and reliable! Works perfectly in my 37.5 inch hallway with uneven trim (I just didn't put it flush with the floor). Super easy to instal by myself in under 10 mins with adding both extensions. I purchased 2 cups for the top which helps add stability since my hallway is at the top of the inches threshold. My baby shakes on this and it doesn't even budge. Easy to open latch and the red/green feature lets you know it's in place well. Great purchase and no need to buy a fancy gate unless you don't like the looks of the all metal gate.

Great dog gate
Great way to keep my dogs and their hair out of my office. Installs easily and is sturdy. I usually don't latch it all the way during the day when I am in and out but my dogs apparently aren't smart enough to realize that! When it is latched, it is fairly easy to open once you get the hang of it. I prefer the metal gates over the plastic ones and this looks nice in my doorway.

The gate works fine. It's a big improvement from the wooden tension ...
The gate works fine. It's a big improvement from the wooden tension gates we used when my brother was a baby. BUT, spend the extra few bucks and get the one with the auto-close. I thought I wouldn't need that, but it's frustrating to have to line up the locking mechanism just right and activate both of the buttons to close this gate.

I have two of these, one at the bottom of my stairs and one at the top. I had to use the extenders. Installation was really simple once you understand the instructions. There is a gap between the latch when you first install it, so you have to tighten the wall mounts until it will click into place. Tightening is key!!! I thought I had it tight enough but then my toddler shook it open. Make sure to jiggle it back and forth to make sure you got it tight enough. Only con of this gate is that the bottom bar is raised and a little tricky to walk over when coming down the stairs. I have to be careful because I'm pregnant and really watch where I am stepping. The way my staircase is set up, the bottom is in the middle of the step. I wish it was a flat bar. Other than that it has worked tremendously well.
