Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish look and great quality This gate went up in minutes and is so stylish. Looks like a great piece of furniture unlike plastic gates. The height is perfect, walking over it is easy (I'm 5'7"). It's a great addition to our home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 21" Gate I wanted a gate that had a higher end look, not a plastic gate. The quality is great. The only negative I can think of is that the small doggy door doesn't open flat against the gate, it opens at 90 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tension mount pet gate Worked perfectly for what I needed to block puppies from going upstairs. Have metal staircase rail and blended in just right. Great quality, looks nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pet gates We bought both the 34 and 21 inch gates. We love them both. The only thing to be careful about it that the gates blend in so well with my dark hardwood floors that it's easy to over look them if you are walking around the house in dim lighting. I almost tripped over the 21 inch gate one night! These are really a great addition to our home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pet Gate Works The 21 inch pet gate works just like we wanted it to. We actually use it to keep the dog from going upstairs, so the door is not used. Our main issue was a gate that would span the area completely. The adjustable ends make it easy to put in any size opening. The gate fits securely and is easy to step over. It would be nice to have an option without the door. It would be nice if the protective pads at the ends of the adjusting screws were thicker. We worried that when the screws were tightened down, the wall might be marked. We put a small pad on the end of each screw plate and that solved the issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice gate for small pets On the plus side: (1) gate stays in place remarkably well, much better than other baby or pet gates that we have had, (2) looks nicer than other baby o pet gates that we have had, (3) our dogs have not, so far, tried to jump over it, although I suspect they could if they really wanted to, (4) it is not too difficult to step over. Negatives: (1) The people in the house do have to step over the gate--I knew this when I bought it so it wasn't a surprise, but unless you want to take the gate up and down all the time, the people in the house will have to step over it. This is only and issue when my arms are full (e.g., carrying groceries). It doesn't bother me enough to send it back, but for someone who is unsteady on their feet it might not be the best choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Looking Gate! Not only best looking but also very well made. I bought two for my new puppy. Put them together in no time at all and have received many compliments on how great looking they are. Really great quality (heavy)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dog gate! I have bought two of these! My small dogs are terrified of thunder storms and have been able to destroy/dismantle every imaginable gate as they run amuck when thunder booms. This gate keeps them safely confined. Also love the tiny door in the gate!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be easier to assemble Friend's with master's degrees can't figure out the hardware that goes against the wall. I can't get it to be stable. If my husband hadn't thrown the box away accidentally, it would go back. It's beautiful, very good quality but hard to set up and down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 21" Expanding pet gate This gate is more beautiful than the catalog photo. The gate is a perfect size for my daschunds. It is well made and doesn't cheapen a space like a plastic gate might. Like all Frontate products this one is first-class.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for small dogs Love this gate ... matches our stairs and keeps our little dogs from going up where we don't want them! Do wish the gate was a little harder for them to open ... .my dogs figured out if they paw at it long enough, it will open for them, so we tie it shut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and ease Purchased to prevent our small dog from going upstairs. Quality and appearance was great and very easy to setup/install. Only issue is height for our family. We are all on the short side, so we need to be careful stepping over. I banged my knee and my son actually fell over it. He was badly bruised, but ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great size! This is the perfect doggie gate, great for a small dog to pass through the opening, and easy for a person to step over!! Extremely pleased with the appearance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This pet gate is much better than the one I ordered and sent back to another leading catalog company. The wrought iron look fits better in my house and the gate is very functional. And, it was less expensive! Thanks, Frontgate!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pet gate I've had several pet gates before, but this one is the best. I especially love the door that the dogs can go through. It's very durable and the metal is beautiful! It was easy to assemble. We're very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this pet gate is attractive and functional and would be an asset to anyone's home. It would be better if the height were at least 22", which would still be low enough to step over by owners and the extra height would be assurance that a pet would not jump over it. As the gate is heavy, the rubber stops should be softer and smoother so as not to damage walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 21" H Expanding Pet Gate This 21"H Expanding Pet Gate is the perfect addition to any home with small dogs offering a stylish alternative to the gating desires. It is easy to step over and has a dog door to allow your sweet pets through. It is easy to instal with minimal efforts!!! I am ordering another to go up by my steps! This is a must have...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good quality the product is great, however, my 90 pound tibetian mastiff can squeeze through the cat door, which defeats the purpose of the gate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional & Beautiful Pet Gate We love this pet gate. Living in an apartment we have close quarters with our dogs. This gate is easy to install, easy to walk over room to room and keeps pet hair to a miniumum in my kitchen! I bought 2 so I could close off the kitchen and the entry. When it is time to go out I just open the dog door and my pets walk on through! We love our expanding pet gates. Di I mention they are beautiful and don't detract from my traditional decor with cheap white plastic or wood likie you find in the pet store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stylish sturdy gate This gate is a perfect gate to block off my two small dogs, but easy enough for our family (two kids 9 and 7, and mother 65) to step over. It looks great with my decor, and I plan on ordering more for another area so they all match! The only thing that would make it better is if there where small extenders offered to fit awkward size spaces. I also purchased the freestanding expandable gate for the bottom of my stairs, and I love it! Thank you for reading!

Is it possible to place this gate caddy corner?

Asked by: NiviaB
Thank you for your interest in the 21-inch Expanding Tension Mount Pet Gate. In order to prevent damage of the product and ensure proper functionality, this gate must be mounted at a straight, 90-degree angle to the wall or door frame. This gate will not work at another angle.

How far apart are the bars? Small dog that could squeeze throug

Asked by: Kavegirl
The bars are 2 1/4" apart which is a very small gap. I do not know of any dog that could fit through the gap in bars. My mini dachshund can only fit his nose through.

My opening is 47" and has no door frame. It is open area. Will this expand that far? If not, what product do you have that would work?

Asked by: thiacomo
We appreciate your interest in this item. Unfortunately, this pet gate is only able to accommodate openings between 28-41 inches. We do offer our 22"H Expandable Mesh Pet Gate, item 42957, which can adjust to fit openings between 32-47 inches.
