Working so far!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 16, 2022
We have a 75lb one year old male Aussie Pyr with incredible agility that likes to hop fences and this has worked so far! We got the 39" tall so he wouldn't be able to jump it. He can glide right over our 29" gate. We've had it for about two months and so far he has not jumped or even attempted to jump over this. I'm not sure if it's because of the height, the fact that it's still new, or that the room it is guarding is less interesting than the other one but I've been thinking about buying another one to replace our shorter gate.
I love the glow in the dark feature. It's not as bright as I wish it was and it's sticky to the touch but it's definitely noticeable at night when the hallway is dark. I also like the two way swing and auto close since it's a hallway.
It is a little difficult to open with one hand since you have to pull up on the gate to unlock it. I might have to buy a foot pedal to attach. It was an absolute pain to get into place and took two people since you have to use a wrench to turn the bolts holding the tension on each side. I really didn't like that but once it's in place it won't move often. My other Carson gate has easy to use hand grips to hold it and I can put in place by myself. The gate also feels really flimsy and will bow back and forth with pressure but it seems to be sturdy enough since it puts up with the poundings of our Aussie Pyr and our 50lb Husky. I do not have kids or use it often so I'm not sure about heavy use or long term use. I wish they had an option with a kitty-door but I guess you can't get everything.
All in all it's a pretty good gate with unique features and finding one that is 39" tall and black is hard to do.
