I bought this pet gate to keep my corgi from getting into the closet where my cat's food and litterbox resides. Unfortunately, corgis aren't that big, and my dog is kind of on the small side anyway. Much to my chagrin, he was able to walk right through the small doorway once I had the pet gate in place. My husband took the pet door off and worked some magic to zip-tie and duct tape it in such a way to make a small square opening that the cat can squeeze through, but the dog cannot. Just be sure to check the dimensions of the pet door against the dimensions of whatever critter you want to keep out -- that door is bigger than I thought it would be. Otherwise, the gate was easy to set up. I only had to use the smaller extension. The compression fittings hold the gate very firmly. That sucker has not budged. The people gate is easy enough for me to open, and is plenty wide to walk through. It doesn't look bad in the doorway either (except perhaps for our duct tape-rigged cat opening.) Though we did have to modify it, we're very pleased with our purchase. There weren't many other options open to us as far as keeping the dog out of one room while letting the cat have free access to his facilities, and this one gets the job done at a good price. I like that if we move and need to block of a narrower OR wider spot, this gate can accommodate either scenario (assuming I don't lose my extra, larger extension.)
