My husband and I have horses for dogs "kidding!". Our big yellow female Lab took down our "Expanding Wooden Fence" broken in three places. This one is metal nice and tuff works better than I expected. Con: The screws are too small, have 1/2 inch sheet-rock walls used a stud finder then 1 1/4 phillips deck screws to attach plastic anchors. Con: The door on the gate opening is smaller than the expanding wooden fence but works for us. Pro: At the bottom of the new gate I just turned the gate anchors sideways and attached to the baseboard. Just did some minors custom things for my preference: This new gate has a smaller door on the larger door, I have cats so I removed the smaller door so cats can go through all the time. The smaller door hinges are spring loaded. Last the larger door has a stop so the door swings oneway. I used a pair of vice-grips and bent the door stop up. Now the door swings in both directions. All in All it works!

Makes Life Easier!
We have two five-month old German Shepherd "puppies" and needed to contain them from time to time so they weren't roaming the house getting into anything dangerous. The entryway to the kitchen/dining room was 66", so we bought this Carlson Maxi Gate and also purchased the 24" extension. With the extension, the length was perfect and we attached it to the walls. We used longer bolts as the ones that came with it were kind of short and this gate would have some heavy traffic coming in and out of it. The little pet door is very cute and solved our cat problem, so now they can get in and out of the kitchen without having to manage a colossal jump. However, surprisingly, the door is big enough to allow our "puppies" who are the approximate size of your average Collie, to squeeze through. We solved this by tying some string this way and that to make the little door only open half way, just so the cats can go in but not big enough for the dogs to squeeze through. This will work until they're bigger and then of course we can take the string off. The walk-through gate itself is very easy to use. My only issue with it is that you have to pull up on the lever to open, whereas it would be easier to press down, but the design doesn't allow for that. Regardless, it's very easy for anyone to use, and this was one of my initial concerns before buying it because it was going to be used pretty heavily and I didn't want a struggle every time. Works great, and is much less expensive than many of the other gates I've seen.
I am enjoying this new gate so much. It looks so nice between my kitchen and living room. I am a senior with a Jack Russell Terrior and it is working great. Love it.

Works like a charm!
We are very happy with the gate. It did not take too long (half hour or so) to hook up. I recommend using the supplied anchors with the compression fittings to keep the gate from slipping on the door jam. The lever is a little tricky to use with only one hand when the gate is in the locked position; not difficult using two hands. We found that we can leave the gate unlocked for one-handed operation; it is still secure enough that our dog cannot accidentally open the gate when it is not locked, since the gate opens into the room where the dog is located (it might accidentally open if the gate is installed so that it opens away from the direction that the dog might push the gate when jumping/pushing onto it). The cat door is too large for our dog (Cockapoo), so he can easily walk through it; but it would be fine for larger dogs. The cat gate is much more difficult to open/close, since the pin is a little hard to slide (it might just be ours, though, because we have a another, longer gate from the same manufacturer, and the cat gate works better on it). Overall, we are pleased, and would recommend the gate to others.
Perfect size and easy installation
Fit a 62" opening with no problems. Installation was very simple with the enclosed template for locating the hanging brackets.
