Stairway Special Outdoor Gate 27" to 42-1/2" x 29-1/2" high Color: Black
Great gate - locking mechanism needs improvement
I installed this on my mother-in-laws deck to keep her dog in. Well constructed and straight forward installation. It worked perfectly for our application which was at the top of a staircase. It includes a stop so you can decide which way it swings open (not over the stairs in our case). The locking mechanism is poorly designed and would drive you crazy over time. However, I was able to remove the locking mechanism with a good pair of pliers and some persuasion. Now it only requires a slight lift to open but still stays securely latched closed. Good for pets and stainless steel hardware should help it last outdoors. Also, opening was neither square or plumb and was offset (angled?) - no problem.

Sturdy Gate, Keeps my big dog out!
I needed a sturdy gate to keep my 100 lb Labrador out of the kitchen, this gate works great! The plastic or wood expanding gates were no match for my dog. I had to add a gate extension for my wide doorway, but It was easy to assemble and install.

I need a gate to keep my Chocolate Labrador confined to the upstairs while I was away. He had developed a bad habit pulling out trash from the kitchen garbage cans. Other gates did not work. This gate has keep him confined and it easy to open (with a little practice.)
It is a little confusing to install but once it is up, it works great.

this gate has great features.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to find sturdy wall mounted gates. All the stores that I visited only carried pressure mounted gates that won't hold up to a dog jumping onto it. This one is solid and tough.
