34"H Expandable Free-standing Steel Mesh Pet Gate is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 970.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Pet Gate Wonderful product, high quality and stylish. Keeps my pets off the carpet and the bronze finish blends nicely with the decor. This is the fourth gate of this type I have bought from Frontgate for myself and family members; they are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dog gate! It's very attractive, not only does it look great, but it works perfectly. I wish I had bought this a long time ago! I may buy another one. I would recommend to anyone wanting to keep their dog in but still have access to the door way. I don't have a cat so the cat door isn't something I've used. It came in perfect condition and with quick delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look Purchased this gate to keep our 3 kids from rushing people upon entering the house. Gate arrived in one large box and was extremely easy to put together! The gate is well made and looks like it belongs in our home. Ordering a second gate for another part or our house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and functional gate! This is the third gate I've bought in this style for my dogs, and they are incredibly useful for keeping them out of areas that I don't want them in. We recently used one to keep them in a separate room while we had dinner guests, and everyone commented on how beautiful it is! Very easy to put together and adjust to your needs, it is also incredibly well made! Only thing to keep in mind is that they still need to be used under supervision. One of my dogs is clever enough to climb over it, so we don't use it as a barrier to an exterior door, but overall it is a superb product! Definitely highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indoor dog gate We have a new golden retriever puppy that is getter by larger by the day. To keep her in our family room, we bought this gate. She jumps on it whenever a new person cones into the living room. This gate holds up, doesn't move, has an easy access door and is beautiful. It is well made and long lasting. We love this gate and have recommended it to friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to our home This free standing gate is great. It's very sturdy if you put the bolts on the sides to keep the 90 degree angles. My only "complain" is that I wish it had more holes to make it smaller. I will have to drill couple of holes , because my hallway is a bit narrower. Still works and it is being used daily. My dogs have learn to respect this barrier and they know they have to sit before crossing it while I hold the door for them. One of my dogs is a known "scratcher" and she tried couple of times, she stopped. I also use it to separate my dogs when they are getting annoyed with each other. They still can roam half of the house without getting at each other throats. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pet gate After 3 other purchases for a pet gate to contain my 95 pound Bouvier, I found the right one! He is so smart, and escaped from other gates within a day. FINALLY I ordered this attractive gate that is well made and very stable and strong. An added bonus is its height. I highly recommend this pet gate. I am very happy with it.

4 ft opening

We have a 4ft opening from our kitchen into our living room that we would like to install a gate that would keep two VERY strong 25 lbs dogs out of the living room. Would this gate be able to fit into that opening?
Asked by: 2dogs
The gate will fit the opening. My 75 lbs dog did not try to go through the gate. Kept out two strong toddlers though.

Can this gate be attached to the walls so it does not slide forward or back & is there an extension available?

The gate would be placed above stairs so I want to secure to the walls - does the gate include holes/hardware to attach ends to a wall? 2) Is there any way to make the gate wider?

Will this fit into a 36 inch opening or is the minimun 42 inches?

Yes, but you need to get the 28"-41" size. 42" would be the widest opening this size would fit into.

What do the footings look like and how are hardwood floors protected from being scratched by the footings?

Asked by: gardencats2
The footings are very attractive and mine are on my hardwood floors and do not scratch your floors. The gates are barely 30 pounds and can be lifted even by myself being disabled. The best thing I can advise is to lift them, not drag if your concerned about your floors, but my floors have not one mark from my gates. You may ant to apply a felt stick on pad just for GP if that eases your mind. The gates match my dining room so beautifully, that I no longer even remove them like the older ugly baby gates I had because they are so decorative and people have noticed them as they enter my home and fall in love and want them for themselves.

Are the side panels included in the max. 40"/70" widths or can I use the smaller version to close a 5' opening if I leave the side panels at an angle?

How long is the smaller version with the two side panels straight with the center panels? Or, when the gate is placed flat on the floor, how long is the entire gate (panels flat as well)? Is that how you measure the maximum widths (small 40" and large 70") with the side panels included in the measurement?

Wider gate can expand to 72" wide with side panel remaining perpendicular for support.

Well, our new kitten was able to zip through the sides very easily, after we applied it to our 36"-wide doorway. If there was a way to close that gap, we would not have returned it.

I have an 84" opening. If I buy 2 barriers, can I combine them and attach panels/pieces to fit that wide an opening?

Asked by: KJake
I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think you could attach an extra panel due to the adjustable nature of the gate. I don't know if extending too much might make it flimsy. Save your receipt just in case it doesn't work.

Is there a way to secure the small cat door so that it remains open?

Or can the small door be left off completely when assembling?
Asked by: Jakeblues
I do not think that the cat door could be removed without cutting through its hinges using heavy duty power tool as is arrives fully assembled and the hinges of the cat are soldiered together. Removing the cat gate in this fashion would leave sharp edges where the hinges were cut. This would leave the potential for severe (even fatal) injuries to your cat or dog (henceforth referee to as a "cat gate" as I am using the smaller gate for my cat). It may be possible that an iron file would be capable of sanding the sharp edges down. Doing so would invariably leave markings on the area. I expect that this would also be very time consuming and would be difficult to do. We opted to keep the cat door open rather than attempt to remove it.When we installed the gate in our doorframe, we found that that the cat gate would swing partially closed when we opened and close the gate as well as after our tiny (5 lb) cat would walk through it per her tail bumping into the frame of the cat door. The cat door would only close partially such that there was only an inch or two between the two doors. Granted, our cat is older so I believe that the smaller opening confused her, it also made it impossible for her to run though it quickly when our 7momthold (50lb) Goldendoodle would chase her. If you do not have a dog that would be chasing your cat and he or she can be taught to bat the smaller opening enough to go through the cat gate thsi may not be an issue for you. However, if you goal is to keep the cat gate fully open then the partial closure would be a problem as is was for us. To remedy this issue, we placed a black ziptie between the small cat door and main gate to keep the cat door open. The cat door does not sit exactly parallel to the main gateway but the difference is small and close enough to parallel that the difference is not obvious unless you are looking for the slight angle departure. Eyeballing it, I would say that the angle of departure from the main portion of the gate is approximately 15%. The departure from parallel is due to the knob on the cat door being a tiny bit larger than the the hinge on the cat door. When the ziptie is attached inbetween the back of the cat door knob and the decorative curl accents it is not visible from either side unless you are aware of and specifically looking for it. We positioned the end of the ziptie in between the cat door and the main portion of the gate.and then trimmed the the excess length. We used the ziptie rather than a thick string because we felt it was more secure (less apt to slip or beak).and we could obtain a more snug fit using the ziptie.

We purchased the gate for a 71" opening and although it's technically 68-1/2" with the extension in, it seems to work fine. Of course, our dogs are giant breed. If you have extremely small dogs, they may be able to "squeeze" through the small space on the side.

Cat Door Operation

I need a gate to keep my dogs out of a portion of the house so that the cats can have peace and a full food bowl! This gate seems perfect except it appears the cat door only swings one way and auto closes. That's awesome except that once the cat is on the other side, what do they do? Hop the fence? If that is the case, I may as well get a regular old gate. I just don't understand the purpose of the cat door if they can only use it one way. Thank you.

What gauge is the wire mesh?

I have two stafford shires and need to know the gauge of the wire mesh.
Asked by: KimT
It's hard steel mesh - not just screen material. I don't know the thickness of the steel wire itself, but the holes in it are just under 1/4 inch square, so there's not really any way to bite it or get a good grab on it. Our dachshunds are total escape artists, and this is the first gate that has ever held up to them. Good luck!

Does the homeowner have to physically open the cat door?

I understand that the cat door has a latch. Does the homeowner have to unlatch the cat door to allow a cat to go in or out? Most healthy adult cats can easily jump over a 42" barrier, but if you chose to include cat gate, shouldn't the cat be able to "let himself out?" (In my opinion, a cat door should open when the cat pushes on it from either direction, because the gate itself is not a barrier to most cats; even a kitten should be able to climb over using the mesh)
Asked by: doxymo
There is a latch on one side, which can be left unlatched.
