Serves the purpose!
I bought this to contain my very active 8 month old in our living room. It's sturdy enough that she is safely able to pull herself up to a standing position. I'm guess that this will serve its purpose for quite some time. Very happy with the quality and appearance of this gate.

This gate's the BEST!
By Bill Brier
This gate is FANTASTIC. I don't know what the one star reviewers are talking about. If your dog can leap over 20 inches, then, DUH, buy something else. The gate is extremely well built, sturdy, and is aesthetically pleasing.

Very Pleased with This Purchase
By Animal Lover
Perfect - This doggie gate is perfect. I think with any gate that doesn't latch, if you have large dogs, you should expect that if your dogs try and move the gate, they will. That being said, I have a chihuahua and a pit/lab mix and neither one of them try and move it. The gate has little rubber pegs on the bottom that grip the hardwood floors pretty well - well enough that my 3 year old had a hard time sliding the gate around to get through the door way. We had to put felt pads under the outer pegs so my daughter could get in and out (see picture I posted), but the dogs still don't try and move the gate. Also, the picture looks like the felt pads would come off easily, but the gate is heavy enough that it doesn't lift off the ground often enough for that to be a problem. The weight of the gate helps to keep those little suckers in place.
When I first pulled the pieces out of the box I could tell right away, this is a good gate. The wood is solid and the the black metal bars throughout the gate have been nicely painted. You can compare the metal wire gate part to the metal wire on an old fashioned floor fan or a really nice hamster cage. The materials are definitely not flimsy at all. The gate is very easy to adjust, although oddly enough, this part of the gate is probably it's only downfall. I don't like it how you can only adjust it by unscrewing 5 large screws, adjusting it, and then screwing the screws back in again. Like I said though, the screws are large, which makes the process pretty easy to deal with and accept. All in all, I think the gate is very good quality, it does what it's supposed to, and it's beautiful. It has just enough elegance that it really could be used in any house hold and look right. I am very pleased with this purchase.
