Finally, a gate that holds my Houdini!
After buying multiple gates, I finally found one that my mini-Doxie can't chew through, climb over pull or push down. Over the past 24 months, my 9 pound wonder has proven herself to be a master escape artist, fueled by great separation anxiety. This is the first gate that not only worked but also doesn't damage my doorway. And, it's nice looking and easy to enter an exit.
The first few days, Nola broke free. It was my error of not tightening the screws so that the door couldn't be opened with persistent pushing and pulling. She also got out the small gate but I'm hoping that was due to my not closing it and ensuring that it was seated properly. There are tiny teeth marks on the pullout latch. Hopefully it was my error not her strategy!)
Anyway, I'm ordering a second to prevent her from running up and down the stairs. Thanks Drs. Foster and Smith!

This is a reasonably priced, high quality pet gate that exceeded my expectations, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
I installed the Carlson Studio Walk-Thru Gate at the base of our stairway, to restrict my dogs' access to the second floor of our home. Constructed primarily of metal, this gate is, of course, far superior to the (chewable and unattractive) expandable wooden gate it replaced. As advertised, the gate includes some convenient features, such as "auto-close," and it is easily and safely mounted and unmounted by simply turning the four pressure-mounting knobs. The provided assembly and installation instructions could be a bit clearer; however, when I e-mailed the manufacturer for clarification, a Carlson Pet Products representative responded right away. Also, while the cherry finish of the decorative wood insets is not unattractive, I would have preferred being able to choose from a variety of finishes (e.g. oak), to better match my home's decor. The bottom line, though: I am completely satisfied with and certainly would recommend this product to anyone who wants a high quality, fairly easy to install, very easy to use, and aesthetically pleasing pet gate.
