20-inch Freestanding Barrier is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 386.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made and beautiful We just moved into a new home with wide doors. This looks and works beautifully to contain my four cocker spaniels in my kitchen and entryway. It looks like part of the decor. We kept ours free standing but easily could have installed in the opening. The dogs cannot knock it down. It is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Sure this will last for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Functional We currently have three of these gates in our home. They are beautiful, simplistic, and keep our three small and medium-sized dogs gated off from carpeted areas. These gates are easy to assemble and install in a short time. The latches are strong and easy to operate. They're sturdy, and though not meant to use for children, we have found they hold up with little ones around too. I cannot rave enough about the functionality of these gates. And we've had many compliments on how nice they look. I definitely recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I have two willful (but totally lovable) long haired dachshunds. When I adopted them at 4 months old, and just 10 pounds, they quickly broke a lesser quality wooden gate that I hoped would confine them to the kitchen area while at work. I had to resort to a crate which was large and ugly, but filled a need for the past year. I had been searching for a strong, durable gate that would fit a 72 inch opening and also be "furniture" quality. There are not many good options out there to choose from. This gate met all my needs and then some. I had a neighbor help me assemble it as it was a bit heavy and the instructions not that clear. Once set up and in place I had several opportunities to see how well the gate does the job and kept my boys, now 15 pounds, contained. When I am home I tie a ribbon around to door to allow us to move from room to room. And when I am away from home, I now leave with confidence knowing all is well!!! I am very happy to have found this beautiful and sturdy gate and consider it money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pet Gate This is the perfect gate for anyone needing something attractive and large enough for bigger dogs and larger spaces. Love that it's a freestanding gate and that I don't have to ruin my walls. It's also nice and heavy so our dogs cannot move it like other freestanding gates, and it has a door so we can walk through. It is perfect for our needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed Just got a new puppy and wanted to limit what rooms he could go to. This was the nicest thing we saw. Very easy for us to walk though, adjustable size and easy to assemble. Extremely pleased with this purchase.
Date published: 2016-12-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Quality The quality is very nice... but beware that the instructions are a bit of a challenge as the diagrams are tiny and unclear. I also don't understand why they call it freestanding when they send brackets that have to be drilled into the wall.. I've not attached mine to the wall yet, because it requires tools to remove it away from the opening if say you wanted to move it when guests came over. It's a bit deceiving regarding that description of freestanding... my 2 yr old grandson was pulling on it and banging it against the wall but it didn't tip over. I believe it needs attaching to the wall, but I've hired a handyman to come up with a way to attach it where it could be easily removed if desired. I would buy again, regardless of this little snafu...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality gate! This is the most attractive, sturdy, pet gate on the market. We placed it in Our foyer to protect our front doors when visitors come. it is standing in place and the door is extremely secure. it doesn't look like a cheap pet gate, rather it is quite attractive considering it's purpose.

how secure is the latch on the gate?

I'm wondering if the latch is secure enough to prevent a child from accidently opening the gate for the dog? Can you give a little more detail on how you open the latch (magnetic, squeeze and pull up, etc)? thank you!
Asked by: erinS
The latch is 2 parts, to be opened with one-hand. There were no instructions on this, so I had to figure it out. Use your thumb on the slide thumb-piece to unlock this horizontal slide pin, then slightly lift up to unlatch the lower pin. So, it is a smooth, one-handed, 2-part motion to unlatch and open the gate. It will automatically close and re-latch on its own if given it's own "weight"; I can prevent the door from automatically re-latching by apposing it gently. I can see if one had debilitating arthritis in the hand it might be hard to operate.

Does the gate swing shut automatically?

I have two young kids, and I'm afraid they'll plow through without shutting the gate behind themselves. Does it swing shut automatically?
Asked by: jenbelle
Yes, it will shut automatically unless you gently appose the door to the gate, where you can (intentionally) prevent it from latching/locking.

does the 20" freestanding barrier have a gate or is it step over ?

Asked by: userunfriendly
It's a step over - there may be another design that has a gate, not sure...
Answered by: CUx2
Date published: 2016-10-22

How big is the gate opening? And how tall is the bar across the bottom that you have to step over when passing through?

Asked by: Crystalannrick
It is wide enough to be comfortable getting through (my husband is a bug guy and has no issues). The piece at the bottom is not raised much at all and should not cause any issues (would estimate < 2 inches).

Which gate to buy?

We have a 40" wide opening and want a pet barrier WITH a walk-through door. Do you sell such a gate?
Asked by: BTBT
There is an extra wide tension mounted version that expands up to > 40" - that should work just fine
Answered by: EKMG
Date published: 2016-01-09

Are you able to secure this gate to the walls on each side?

Asked by: Kris1
No - you are viewing / asking about the free-standing version. There is a tension mounted/mounted version that is not as wide.

I need a pet gate that will extend approximately 93" (a little under 8'.) Also, it must be free standing. Could you accommodate?

Asked by: Beff
If you were to use two of these gates and "attach" them together in the middle (you can adjust each one independently) - but it would be over 100"...not sure if you could place at an angle (I have had to do that with other freestanding gates as I have a very wide opening too).

Horizontal opening at base of door

What are the dimensions of the opening at base of the door itself? Is an adult cat likely to get through it?
Asked by: Mojoken
I am not in front of my gate at this time, but I do have three cats and they can not get through unless the door itself is opened.

I have a 45" opening, will this gate adjust to fit this width ??

Asked by: puzba
Yes! I bought this exact gate and width a year ago and I use it for a 55" opening (and it looks like it could expand another foot beyond that). This is an incredible product, well worth the investment, and looks GREAT in our house!

Of what materials is the frame fabricated?

This is exactly what am I looking for except I do not want the front part to exceed 50 inches. Is there a way to do that?

Is it possible to put the gate together and reduce the length? If not is there another similar gate? The mesh one is nice , but this one seems to be more substantial and likely to last longer than mesh.
Asked by: Rogersinnc
no - the smallest width is over 50 inches. They do have the same gate in a pressure mounted version for more narrow openings.

I have a 6 foot (72 inch) opening. Will this gate be wide enough?

Asked by: Butterbean
The 36" high version can be extended to 68.5". If centered in the 70" opening there would be about a 1.75" space at either end of the barrier. There is a 2" space between each slat in the barrier.

I have an 84" opening. Can I buy 2 of these barriers and combine panels/pieces to fit the opening?

Asked by: KJake
If you did, you would have the 11" side pieces sticking out in the middle of your gate. They would butt up against each other, and I suppose you could wire them together with a nice bronze-looking wire. I think it would function fine, but you definitely would have those sides in the middle of your gate. I own this one, and I have it spanning a 55" width. See pic and you will clearly see the side panels. LOVE the gate!

Can this gate be used on just a door area?

The gate is needed only to block a door exit not a very large space.

Thank you for your interest in Frontgate. The Standard size Freestanding Barrier can collapse to as small as 27"W, which would accommodate smaller spaces.

How does this gate stay in place? My dog pushes ours out and escapes!.

What keeps this gate from moving if pushed? Or from falling over if pushed? My guys are determined.
Asked by: Melinda59
Thank you for your interest in Frontgate. The Freestanding Barrier does have rubber feet on the bottom to help provide traction and make it less likely to slide across a hardwood floor. The gate also has feet that stick out on the front, to help prevent the gate from tipping over.

Is the gate always on the far side of the fence?

I notice the gate is on the far end of this. When expanded is it possible that part of the expansion would move the gate more toward the middle of the barrier? My doorway is about 60 inches. I live in the northeast so rooms are small and I have obstacles that go out about 6 inches in front of the door frame on both sides, so having the gate flush against either end is not ideal for me, but otherwise I love this gate. Just want to make sure it will work. Thanks!

Regarding pet barrier 20 inches high (product # 30191)

I like to buy two barriers (70 plus inches each) to put side by side in order to cover a 110 inches opening. The question is what is the space between the two barriers when placed next to each other? can my dog escape? is it more than 2 inches? thank you
Asked by: sila
Thank you for your interest in the 20-inch Freestanding Barrier. Putting two of these barriers next to each other would not leave less than an inch gap; however, they are designed to be placed against a wall on both sides to add stability. Not having a wall on both sides a barrier will make it easier for a pet to push against and move the barrier.

Is it possible to use 2 gates side by side?

I have a very wide opening of 87". I was hoping to use 2 gates side by side to block this opening. Would this be possible?
Asked by: mulberrychick
Thank you for your interest in the 34-inch Freestanding Pet Barrier with Walk-through Door. You can put two gates side by side; however, they will not be as stable due to only one side being against a wall.
