Top Paw Extra Tall Gate
OK but not good with cats.
I got this gate to keep my new dog and cats apart while I'm training the dog to properly interact with the cats. The gate was easy to put together but the screws that came with it to install the mounts are really low quality. One of them broke apart while being screwed into the pilot holes I made. I had to dig it out of the wall and patch it. Another started to strip as it was being screwed in. I had to go and buy stronger screws that were better made to install the gate.
Another issue I had was that the bars aren't close enough together to keep my cats away from the dog. While the gate has worked out well with my dog, one of my cats is part velociraptor and has been testing the gate since it was put up. He tried to jump over the top and body slammed into it making it fall to the ground when I was just using it without the mounts. He was unharmed as he wandered over it acting like nothing had happened. When I wasn't able to install the mounts due to the screws falling apart he rammed into the bottom making the bottom come loose and swing up so he was yet again able to get through to the other side.
Once I had the mounts installed he figured out that he could fit through the bar between the end of the door and the bar next to it. I've had to tape cardboard over parts of it to keep my cats from getting through the bars. Something needs to be redesigned to keep cats from being able to fit through and better hardware needs to be provided to mount the gate.

Do not buy!!!
Please do not buy this product. Its cumbersome to use and its difficult to assemble to get into place. The door does not latch so you can get it into place and therefore swings open while getting it set up. While I like the look of it and it is tall enough my border collie cant jump it it is not worth the time and effort to purchase. I am DEFINITELY taking this back.

I bought two of this tall gates for my one year old male pug and two small gates last year whe he was 8 weeks old. I really like this tall gate more than smaller ones.
I'm replacing two more tall gates for the smaller ones this week since it's on sale now. People loves this tall gate when they come in my house…it's matching my white walls around the house also. I recommend this tall white gate to anyone who has pet in the home. It's easy to set up, steel strong, and nice clean looks.

Easy install, easy to use
Nice gate. sturdy enough to keep the dogs out and the small door lets the cats through to their litter and food. Only possible dislike is that it only swings in one direction. Not really a big deal, but our other gate (that doesn't have the little door) opens both ways which makes it easier to get through.
