Top Paw® Adjustable Wood Gate
looks great but doesn't hold up
I have had this gate for less than 2 weeks and it fell apart. My husband is trying to glue it back together. If it had not broke into 10 pieces, I would have loved it. I looks great and works smoothly, except it is now in many pieces being glued together again.

The gate was easy to put together. I needed it for a larger opening and because it is adjustable it fits perfect. Looks nicer than a baby gate.

Not worth half what they're charging for it
We originally got this gate because it didn't look like all the other cheap gates out there. Turns out, we would have been better off with one of those cheap-looking gates.
First gripe: we wanted to put this in a doorway. Since our dog is on the larger size, we wanted to use the tension brackets so he didn't just knock it over. Well, this is by far the most nonsensical set-up ever. It takes both my husband and I to set it up--one person to hold the gate upright and another to tighten the tension brackets.
Second gripe: this is by far the most upsetting one--the first time the dog knocked it over, the whole thing fell apart. Literally. It is now in 5 pieces. The wood pieces on the top of the gate separated from the rest of the wood supports and both of the metal mesh gates just fell out. The FIRST TIME my dog knocked it over.
With shoddy craftsmanship and some head-scratching engineering, this piece isn't worth your time or money. As for my husband and I, we're back to the drawing board and out quite a bit of money.

It did exacty what I needed it to do.
I ordered this to keep our dog out of our dining room where she liked to go relieve herself if it was raining outside and didn't want to get her feet wet. (Can you say diva?) The opening is 6 feet wide and this fits perfectly and looks nice and easy to step over for me.
