We just have ours installed with the pressure, rubber 'thingies'--the gate stays in place great, and has for probably more than a year. If we bump into it, the rubber bumper thingies might slide a small amount--we just push the gate back into place. There has been no damage to the door frame at all.
The gate is easily adjustable to make it fit snugger in the doorway if needed, just by turning the screw the 'rubber bumper thingies' are on.
We saw no need, and still have no need, to do the elaborate installation requiring drilling into the woodwork, etc.
We intended our installation to be not permanent, but even if it were going to be a forever installation I still see no need for the drilling installation method.
