Before purchasing the Richell One Touch 150 to block my cats from entering the living room, I had researched other gates to find the best one for my situation. I decided the Richell had the design and quality I was searching for. I especially love the one touch opening, how the gate opens either direction, and the ease of installation. The one thing that did not meet my expectations was the height of the gate. On the manufacturers website the One Touch 150 was advertised as being 40" high. The gate is actually 34" at the latch (gate height is 32"). I ordered it without rechecking the spec. on the Walmart site. I didn't want to return the gate so I bought a 4 x 4, 2 pieces cut to my door size, to raise the height of the gate to 40". Yes, I now have a big step over the bottom of the gate, but the extra height is critical because I am dealing with cats. So far, it is working, but I expect them to challenge me a some point. If they do, I have a few other tricks to use. After all, I am the boss here.
