Richell USA One-Touch Pet Gate 150
A beautiful and serviceable gate!
This gate is exactly as adverised--good looking and functional. In fact it is even better looking than I anticipated! I have salukis, a whippet, and two poms, and although the height may not work for taller dogs who jump (mine don't), nor is it made for taller dogs, it has worked perfectly with mine and it is a great solution to successfully partitioning off my kitchen from my living room to dog traffic when I need to. The gate is sturdy and the latch open and closes easily. Far and away the best pet gate I have ever bought!

review of the one touch gate
This gate works well - it opens in either direction
and it is not hard to get used to the mechanism to
open and close the center section......It has a small
unavoidable flaw - a small but very "trippable" metal
piece runs across the open area to hold the two pieces
of the gate in place.......Be careful and learn to remember that it is there and be careful with any new
guest going in and out until they get used to it.....
Otherwise, you'll take a tumble......I would recommend
the gate - it looks as it has been presented in the
catalog and it certainlyl works well with no permanent
holes drilled into the wood trim of your home........

This is a very nice gate which compliments any decor, however, it is not wide enough for some large openings. I need at least 77" with a walk through gate.

I wish I had bought this gate years ago!
I love this dog gate! I never review products. But because almost everytime I go through this gate, I think (or even say out loud) "I love this gate!", I figured I would take the time to mention it here.
It required assembly. I am using it in its largest configuration (about 60"), in a double-doorway. I liked that I was able to choose towards which side I wanted the gate opening. I was able to get it fully assembled in about half an hour, by myself.
One thing I did not know when I purchased it was that the two fence sections aren't wood, but metal painted to match the colour of the wooden gate. Not a bad thing, just worth mentioning.
My only complaint about this gate is that the hardware (nuts and screws) are plain, unpainted steel and are very obvious against the painted (orangey-brown) metal of the fence. Hardly a complaint, really. I plan to paint the hardware a matching colour, to give it a more uniform look.
The gate lock/release handle is so smooth and easy to work one-handed, even a small child can open and close this gate. The gate swings smoothly and silently, in almost-full arc, so that it can open into either room.
This gate is strong and sturdy when properly installed (works with tension - no wall mounts needed). I am using it for my two golden retrievers, about 65-75 lbs each. I know the gate isn't rated for dogs this big, and if you have a big dog that really wants to go through it, they could. But it is plenty strong enough for my boys that just need the boundary as a remainder that they are not allowed into that room. :)
I am so pleased with the quality of this gate for the price I paid that I plan to gat another one, to use in another location in the house.
