Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally found the perfect pet gates I recently bought 3 of these gates and installed them yesterday. They are and look great!! Easy to assemble, sturdy, beautiful. My three dogs aren't too happy about it, especially the German Shepard, so are my Chow and pit mix. These gates are the highest out there! My regret is not discovering these gates before!! No cons!!! July 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous gate I already owned two other gates from Frontgate, so it was no surprise when this gate came and it was exactly as described. It is a good looking, sturdy gate, which mounts easily (though instructions were not good) and opens and closes easily. At first I thought that the height was unnecessarily tall, but the height is nice in that it makes it easy for adults to walk through without having to bend over to work a latch. When extended to fit a 36" doorway there are 3" spaces on either side of the uprights---which is definitely enough to let a puppy through. If the gate is in an even wider doorway, those will be wider as well, which is a point to consider. This can be seen in the catalog picture, so it should not be unexpected. In our case we were able to place pieces of wood in this space temporarily to narrow the spaces until the puppy grows. This completes my puppy-proofing, but if I did need another gate I would choose this product again. It's a great gate at a good price. July 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect addition We needed something a bit more permanent than using the old fashioned mesh gates. This is a beautiful piece, it was an easy install. Our small dog can get through the smaller door. It fits in perfectly with our home decor. It was a very good buy. Thank you. July 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Purchase Beautiful and well-crafted dog gate. It is sturdy, functional, and attractive. Am buying another for a different room. Highly recommend. June 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME THE DOOR WORKED GREAT. LOOKED GREAT. KITTY DOOR HOLE WAS TOO BIG AND OUR MID SIZED DOG GOT THRU. FIX WAS TO CUT THE MESH IN THE KITTY DOOR AND DUCT TAPE TO AVOID SHARP EDGES, FIXED THE PROBLEM. WOULD BUY ANOTHER ONE SHOULD ONE BE NEEDED SOME WHERE ELSE. THANKS FOR A SOLUTION TO OUR KITTY/DOG PROBLEM. April 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 42inch Tension mount gate I bought this gate 1 year ago to keep my 3 lb yorkie in my kitchen when I am away from the house. It is a beautiful gate and the I love it. I did have to make an adjustment to the side because it has some opening on the sides that she could get thru. I just had my husband cut a 2x4 piece of would and painted it the same color as the gate , problem fixed. I used the wood between the wall and gate to fill in the space some so she could not get out. I love this gate and the style looks great in my home. The gate is spring loaded and you can not just leave it open which is fine for us. I just open the small door on the bottom for my yorkie. She loves her little door since she is still 3 lbs and can not get up on things. I recommend this gate to people with xs pups The mesh part is wonderful and beautiful January 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Gate! Useful to keep large cats out. I am using the gate to keep out one "large" cat from mingling with the others. Interestingly enough, since at the sides of the gate there is some space, the "thinner" cats can easily slide in through the sides, whereas the larger cat cannot - perfect for what we needed. The gate is sturdy, beautiful to look at and opens only one way. It is self closing (so helpful!). No matter that the door may "slam", it doesn't jar the gate off the door. None of my animals push against it but I can't imagine that a medium sized dog can push it out of place. Maybe a large dog with effort can?? Anyway, it's a great gate for a good price. December 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Magnificent Quality and remarkable beauty beyond what picture is able to display. Distressing around both edges of frame was gorgeous and genius. Thank you! September 15, 2015

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
There are large openings on either side of this gate when using in a doorway 36"+. The wider the doorway the larger the opening in the sides. Cats and small or slender dogs could fit through. Openings are either side are wide enough that a dog could easily get their head caught in it. Disappointing, its a beautiful piece.

Answer: 
Both the top and bottom gate open one way and that is why (IMO) it is sturdy. Nice sliding tension latch for the gate, the smaller gate has a latch that drops behind a fixed bar for closure.

Answer: 
The door swings inward only. It close behind you with a nice latch. When you mount it, you will need to make sure the spacing is even on both sides for the latch to close. I love ours. Picture below with our 4 Dalmatians

Answers

Answer: 
Not really...my doorways are exactly 37.5" wide, and I have several problems, possibly causing me to send the gates back. (I purchased three of them.)

1. The gate becomes rather flimsy, and the tension simply does not hold in a doorway this width, even with the self-stick tape/rubber pads now included.

2. My Maltese, who is a chunk of a Maltese at about 12-13 pounds, can force himself through the openings in the sides. There is simply too much space between the doorway edges/frame and the gate in a doorway this width.

I am debating whether or not to add "temporary" 1 x 4's to the insides of the doorways so that the gates will fit. I'm just not sure I want to go there, though. The gates are beautiful, but so is my home. I don't know if I want to tacky up the doorways now by trying to make these gates work.

I'm at a loss. I just received the gates yesterday. Not sure what I'm going to do yet.

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)

Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in the 42"H Tension-mount Dual Door Steel Mesh Pet Gate. If the small door is note latched, a cat should be able to push it open. However, the small gate is designed to allow a smaller pet out of one area of your home without having to open the larger gate and letting a larger pet out as well. It can be used for small dogs as well as cats.

Answer: 
The cat door has a latch that is not very "secure" since it's just a catch that rotates and hooks onto a bolt. you can certainly leave the little door open or closed and the cat can get through on it's own. The little door is not self closing so once it's open, I doubt a cat will turn around to close it #that will take SOME training, for sure!! - good luck on that trick!# . My cats don't seem to be interested in jumping the gate. They are too lazy? But even my "hyper" cat won't jump it. My door is 36" wide #where I have placed the gate# and I will say that the sides of the gate have enough space in between the door jam and the actual gate that allows a thin cat to get through the sides. I imagine that if my adult thin cats get through the sides, a kitten certainly can. Indeed, the mesh can allow a cat to get past it. I suggest in the initial training, be near the gate and spray water mist at the cat who climbs the mesh. That will stop the behavior without hurting them. Again, out thin cats can get through the sides and the large cat cannot and won't jump or climb the gate - she just sits sadly on the "wrong" side #even though she's on the right side!# Enjoy!
