34"H Expandable Free-standing Steel Mesh Pet Gate 4.6 5 458 479
Great gate, terrific find! I have read other reviews some good some bad on this gate. My husband and I have 3 LARGE breed dogs,the biggest being 127lbs. We moved and didn't want to mar the walls in the new house with a gate that had to be anchored, or tensioned. This Gate works great. Looks terrific, would highly recommend to anyone. It also came well packaged and protected when shipped. August 24, 2014
Steel mesh gate I have now purchased a total of 4 of these gates. They fit our needs perfectly. We have 3 herding dogs in a large house and it helps to to herd them. We get many compliments because they look unique and elegant. I do wish this height was offered for more narrow doorways though. We added some extra padding around the sides using pieces of felt rug pads, to give more protection for our doorway moldings. Although our dogs could easily hurdle these gates , they do not. I think that could be a problem for some other dog owners. August 13, 2014
Love it! It was so easy to put together. My schnoodle puppy can no longer leap over this gate like the first one I bought that was 24 inches. August 6, 2014
Love it! This item is perfect for me. It is very sturdy and easy to open and close! I put it at the top of the stairs and I am able to have it "wrap" around the edges of the wall to secure it. Very attractive. Guest thought it was a screen for my fireplace. July 18, 2014
expandable freestanding gate Very easy to assemble. Sturdy, nice looking and works well. July 18, 2014
Beautiful I love the Expandable Free Standing Pet Gate that I purchased. Its beautiful and practical.. Easy to assemble and fits perfectly at the top of the stairway where I am using it. Very sturdy. July 16, 2014
Absolutely love it Is it possible for something as utilitarian as a pet gate to actually be attractive? Do you really want to spend this much? If it's this gate, then the answer is an emphatic yes. It's also easy to assemble and very sturdy. Mine gets heavy daily usage and has held up to the constant back-and-forth foot traffic (human), while keeping the dogs safely contained and away from the open front door. Great product, and far more stable and substantial than I was expecting. Vastly superior to the 'big-box' kind, and light-years better-looking than a kiddie gate. Highly recommended for small dogs (as well as medium-to-large dogs that aren't aggressive jumpers or climbers). June 16, 2014
34" H Expandable Free-Standing Mesh Pet Gate Very attractive, fits into traditional decor. Keeps the pets out, but the door allows for easy egress. June 13, 2014
Attractive and easy to put together pet gate We love this! It was even easy to assemble and we are not usually good at this. Many pet gates use a suspension mechanism that can be tricky to secure. This is freestanding and it is so pretty. An online coupon we found for frontgate made it also a great value. June 11, 2014
Great product! Love the dog gate! It is so sturdy and with the expandable ability it fits almost any area! It is a great looking product and adds to the look of our house. June 2, 2014
Expandalbe freestanding steel mesh pet gate love it, love it. love it. it fits perfectly where I have put it and the dogs can't come out of the kitchen, but they can still see us and it keeps them happy. and if I have to remove it, I just pick it up and put it elsewhere. thank you. May 22, 2014
super pet gate Marvelous quality and durability. Plus the attention to decorative details is very attractive rather than being an eye-sore in your home. Absolutely worth the cost. May 19, 2014
Functional & Stylish We installed this in our family room and is a stylish barrier for our 56 lb Lab pup. She is pretty obedient but like any pup can be destructive. This is sturdy, easy to install. Nice to have a solution in place which doesn't look like the normal doggy doors (white with bars). April 23, 2014
nice looking pet gate This gate is more decorative than others I have seen. It was easy to put together and to use, I like it and am glad I found something that is not only functional but decorative too. April 22, 2014
Free standing gate This item was shipped promptly at no charge. The quality is excellent and matches my decor perfectly while being very functional. Easy to set up! I have been recommending it to many people!! April 17, 2014
Pets & Kids Barrier Gate Well, this is my second gate from frontgate. First one was great and lasted two years, probably would have lasted longer but my son was walking fast and goofing around and he kind of kicked through the wood.. It was wood and metal. So this one showed up very fast and in great condition. It was OMG easy to assemble, no tools, just the lil "L" wrench they provided. I'm a 51yr old grandma and I made it in 15 minutes. It is actually very pretty and sturdy. Way nicer then first one. This has great grippers so it doesn't move around my hard wood floor and gate shuts behind you, a little loud if baby is sleeping. Only one negative, the picture does show dog entering the gate on left ( which would have been the perfect way for my entry way) , this gate can't be switched up to open on left. This picture had to be altered for catalog purposes. But just beware of that difference, gate opens on right side. Over all, love it. April 2, 2014
Free-standing Steel Mesh Pet Gate Excellent product that allows my cats to go into the sunroom but keeps the dog out of "their space." Attractive appearance does not distract from the room décor. FYI - We also have the shorter 22" model but unfortunately it does not have a gate to open & close. March 27, 2014
Very pleased! We like the appearance and well it works. Very classy. March 12, 2014
Excellent Purchase The pet gate was delivered on time, and was extremely easy to set up. It is very attractive and works just as described. The gate opens very smoothly, and closes securely. We are very happy with this purchase, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a handsome and highly effective pet gate. March 12, 2014
Classy gate After losing my old Schnauzers I got 2 new puppies. Many gates have openings too large to hold them. We are in a newer house and wanted a gate that would look nice while they are growing up-and to keep them separated from a larger dog. This gate fits the bill. We could adjust it to fit the wide opening from kitchen to family room and do not have to worry about damaging walls or woodwork. It was easy to put together and was shipped quickly.` February 28, 2014
Beautiful Gate Very sturdy, quick ship, and easy to assemble.Will do the trick for our frisky dog! February 22, 2014
wonder fence This dog fence is very attractive and strong. I use it on my patio to keep the ducks from our pond off the patio. It work beautifully. February 19, 2014
34" high Explandable mesh gate Excellent gate....easy....good looking...and it works February 11, 2014
This Expandable Gate is Great I absolutely love this gate. My only regret is that I didn't see ( or buy it) sooner. It is sturdy and very attractive. February 3, 2014
34" Expandable Gate is Beautiful We received our gate today. A week ago it was delivered damaged, and Frontgate quickly shipped out another within a week. Excellent customer service!! The gate is easily assembled and is sturdy and beautiful. I was surprised when the instructions stated this gate was for small dogs weighing less than mine. My smallest dog is around 35#, and 4 more weighing from 55-108#. This gate is sturdy enough to keep them from entering a particular room. We are very pleased and would certainly recommend this to anyone who wants to keep dogs controlled into/out of any room. Thank you Frontgate! January 31, 2014
Love this gate! Easy to put together. Adjustable for fitting different widths. Sturdy. And it looks great! January 30, 2014
Unbelievable QUALITY I was stunned when I opened the box to see this unbelievable expandable steel gate. It's like a piece of lasting quality furniture for the home. I had to put it in the entry to my formal dining room, as my old cat starting using the room for his litter box, every time something "upset" him. I needed something that did not look "cheap" and went with my house decor. I cannot say enough about this gate. It is beautiful. I'm a perfectionist, so when I say this... believe it. Frontgate is really a quality shopping experience. January 29, 2014
Steel Mesh Pet Gate Excellent quality. Exactly what I needed to keep the cats and dog separate. It has a very classy look to it. January 28, 2014
34"H expandable steel mesh gate Very attractive and sturdy gate. The package was quite heavy, but managed to get it indoors and set up with the help of a family member . Well packed. So far the gate has operated smoothly and stays latched-- a must since my puppy is an escape artist! Do wish that the free standing leg braces were a bit longer to allow for even more stability when the pup jumps against the screen. The ornate wrought iron scrolling goes well with the furnishings in the house, and have had compliments from everyone who has seen it. Very good quality for the price. January 28, 2014
Happy Happy Happy Very pleased with this purchase. I had to purchase two of these because we have a very wide opening to be gated. I like that is very well constructed and does not look like your ordinary dog gate. It looks very nice with my home decor. I have a dog that jumps over all the other gates that we have purchased and this one is tall enough that she won't be doing that anymore. And the gate is spring loaded so it closes quietly.

gate latch

is the gate latch easy to operate with your hands full? does it lock top and bottom? And does the latch operate both or do you have to stoop down to unlatch the bottom? Is the gate easy to scoot if the dog tries to push it? Our little Yorkie often moves the gate we have now, so we are looking for a heavier one.

Answer: 
We have found the latch quite easy to work, and I have had my hands full a time or two. There is only a top latch, but it has proved to be all that is needed. We secured the gate with screws, so I cannot accurately answer your question of scooting. I can tell you the gate is quite heavy.

Answer: 
You probably do need one hand to open the gate. It is a sliding mechanism at the top only (no bottom latch). Once it is open, you can push through it with hands full and it swings back by itself to shut.

Answer: 
There is only a latch up top and unless you push the latch or slam it - it stays slightly open. We prefer that as we have our gate to block up staircase and since we go up and down it a lot - it helps that it doesn't latch unless we want it too. Our dog can't get through it when it's not latched - as it stays closed well enough but this way you can just use your leg to open it while you may have items in your hands.

Answer: 
The gate does require a free hand to operate. It has a good weight to it so two hands are better. The lock is only on the top of the gate. I have two welsh corgis and they are not able to move it. Again, it has good weight to it.

Answer: 
Yes it is easy. I have an 8 week Golden and can carry him in one hand and pull the latch open with the other. The latch is only at the top and you don't need to stoop down or anything to undo it. The door swings back on it's own as well and latches. At this point we feel it is pretty sturdy because of the horizontal legs on on both sides and we haven't even connected all the pieces yet.

Answer: 
Yes, it is easy to operate. It has one sliding lock on the top where you can reach down without bending (and I am 6'5"). The gate is heavy and hard to move, but the sides are angled and can be moved by the dog so he can wedge himself through if you don't anchor the sides firmly against the wall. But it is plenty heavy enough for Yorkies. We have 2.

Answer: 
The gate is nice and heavy and our dog hasn't been able to move it, though to be fair, she hasn't tried very hard. It latches only at the top and requires just a finger to slide the bolt out. If you're coming from the other direction, however, you have to reach over the gate. When we come down the stairs, it's a little awkward to bend over and reach the latch. It closes easily behind you.

Answer: 
The gate latches at the top only. It is very easy to open even with stuff in your hands. It is a slide type latch. This is a heavy metal gate so your Yorkie will not be able to push it open at the bottom. I have a Yorkie also. He is a jumper and climber. He can not jump over this gate or climb it. This gate is heavy so your dog will not be able to push it out of the way. It also has rubber on the bottom so it does not slide on hard wood floors easily. Also the door closes automaticlly and latches so you don't have to worry about your Yorkie pushing it open if you forget to latch it.

Answer: 
I find the latch very easy to open- there is only one latch at the top of the gate so no stooping required. I doubt that a Yorkie will be capable of moving this gate. It is very sturdy metal construction. We have a lab/basset hound mix puppy who currently weighs about 25 lbs.

Answer: 
No, the gate cannot go on the other side. The holes to connect the pieces of the gate make it so that you cannot change the side of the gate. The only way you can get the door on the right is to face the gate the opposite way that's in the picture.

Answer: 
No. You would have to turn the whole gate around to get the door on the Right side. Depending on your opening it could be done. The back side of the gate is not ugly. It is just not as finished as the front side.

Answer: 
I have not used it at the top of stairs, but you will notice that it is very stable and would be difficult to push over. Of course, if your dog is heave or very large, they may be able to knock it over, but I've had a doberman all over mine and it never fell over.

Answer: 
I would have to see your stairwell or at least know the dimensions but for the most part, this gate is just what it says it is "free standing" and it's quite sturdy. We have giant and large breed dogs (weigh 158, 110 and 85 lbs, respectively). Since the two larger dogs often "challenge" gates or simply barrel through them, we decided to turn this gate inward between our dining and living room. The gate opens "in" so they are unable to push on it - works like a charm. You'd have to be sure the gate expands past the opening at the top of your stairs but the opening between the two rooms in our house is 70" or almost 6 feet. the gate has a magnetic closure so it swings shut automatically if you let it go and latches. Hope this helps. (The gate is lovely and quite well made). Denise in Land O' Lakes

Answer: 
If using it for a pet it should be fine, it is free standing and very sturdy. Not sure I would use it for a child.

Answer: 
It is pretty sturdy, and it has the stand to balance it, but I don't know if someone can tip it down the stairs.

Answer: 
I would NOT use at the top of stairs! It may fall! Not a suction or screw in type and could tip over.

Answer: 
We installed ours on the top of some stairs and to make it very stable, I cut two blocks of wood (4" X 4" X 7" L) to slide under the legs and this made the fully opened gate extremely strong. I stained them brown to match the stairs and they are almost invisible beneath the metal legs. Even opening and closing the door is easier and can be done with one hand now.

The description states that the opening is 55" wide, so I am concerned about whether or not it could adjust smaller.

We appreciate your interest in this item. Unfortunately, the smallest size this gate can be adjusted to is 55". We do offer our 22"H Free-standing Mesh Pet Gate Barrier (item 42958) in two different size options, one of which adjusts between 40" - 70". We apologize for any inconvenience.

Answer: 
The doorway where we placed the gate is less than 55 inches. We just put the side panels up against the wall on each side. The results were similar to one of the pictures on Frontgate. It shows the gate panels extended out from the doorway. It works and looks great.

Answer: 
If there is wall on either or both sides of your opening, you can simply put it overlapping the doorway and the sides will come in to your wall. Otherwise, the shortest it assembles is 54 1/2"

Answer: 
No. Just set it on one side of the door opening. It will be extend slightly over each side of the doorway, but will be side pieces will be flush against the wall. Look at the photo and just imagine the gate extended 3" wider on each side.

Answer: 
It will not be able to fit an opening 48" wide. I tested mine to see if I could make it fit, and it would not.
