Disclaimer: I am a Munchkin Brand Ambassador and I received this free to test. All views are my own. I have been using this gate for just over a month now and I love it so much. My husband installed it at the top of our stairs because our baby boy is on the move and I did not want him falling down. We have a regular wooden gate that stretches to fit, but I never trusted it not to slide down if my son decided to lean up against it so the Auto Close Metal Gate is perfect. It is sturdy, especially since it screws into the wall, so it puts my mind more at ease when I set my son on the floor to play in his room. If he decides to crawl out and visit me in my room, I can trust that he will not go tumbling--a comfort every mama bear needs. The gate is easy to use; while it is a little more effort than other gates to have to lift it to open, I actually am thankful for this added security; my youngest will not even be able to try to open the gate for quite some time, but when he is ready to, I know that the lifting to open will continue to prevent him from falling down the stairs. I am able to open the gate one-handed, which is awesome because as a busy mommy who is constantly running up and down with the baby (or a plate full of midnight snacks,) I need to be able to get through the gate quickly and easily. Even more convenient is the fact that I can just let the door drop behind me and it will close on its own! This gate is so easy to use that, with a little instruction, my 3 1/2-year-old is able to go up and down through the gate on his own safely. Since he is a stair master, he uses this frequently and I am happy it was simple enough to teach him so that I do not need to help him--exercise is good and all, but I don't have the energy I used to. My only complaint would be that my husband said he was having a hard time getting the gate to fit our stairway and getting it to stay even; but it's good now and has been holding up perfectly for us. Overall, this is definitely a gate I will recommend, especially with those who have stairs. It is sturdy, well-made, simple, and fairly easy to install.

I first purchased this model last year for the bottom of the stairway on our main level for my exploring 1 year old. I loved it so much that I bought another for the top of the stairs for the now running toddler. I have 2 children and a dog so it gets decent traffic. However, after about 2 months of use on the newest gate, the screw/spring mechanism responsible for the auto close feature kept coming loose and shooting across the hall as the gate was opened. It has to be "re-screwed" at least once a week now. To my dismay, this does not just effect the auto close feature, it holds the actual gate door to the frame, so without this screw, the swing door comes off completely. The original gate that I have at the bottom of the stairs completely broke 3 weeks ago. The plastic piece that the screw/spring piece attaches to completely broke off, like another reviewer mentioned which leaves the gate completely non-functional. SO I find myself about to buy 2 more gates, after a little over 1 year of use on one and less than 3 months use on the other. It's a great gate while it lasts but both gates broke in the same area at different times, so I can only assume this is a design or material flaw or both.

Spring and Screw

By hnlapaille

from Topeka, KS

Comments about Munchkin Auto Close Metal Gate:

I've had my gate about 6 months and lived it. Then the other day as I was opening it and walking through to put my daughter down for her nap a screw and spring flung across the hallway. The gate fell off and I was able to find all of the pieces, I just have no idea how the spring and screw go back into the gate to fix it. I've spent about two hours trying to fix it on my own with no luck. I would assume for the price I paid it would last longer than 6 months :(

Excellent Customer Service

Comments about Munchkin Auto Close Metal Gate:

I previously wrote a review about the gate putting a hole in my wall and needing replacement parts. Munchkin personally reached out to me and rectified the problem so quickly and easily. I now have the gate, which I love, upstairs in my house so that my 2 year old can run around without me worrying about stairs. Thank you Munchkin!

Wish I could love it.....

Comments about Munchkin Auto Close Metal Gate:

I bought this gate and it worked perfectly. Until I closed it one day and it put a hole through my wall. The long screw and pressure adjuster fell into the wall and now I only have a gate with three points of pressure. I cannot find a replacement piece anywhere. Now I have a gate that doesn't work and a hole in my wall.

Comments about Munchkin Auto Close Metal Gate:

I've had this gate for 6 months. The hinge at the top breaks. I have epoxied it back together then breaks worse. I know now to look for a better design.

Just alright

Comments about Munchkin Auto Close Metal Gate:

I bought this gate about a year ago. I used it at the bottom of my stairs to gate off my dogs. The gate fit for the most part, but what they didn't tell you is likely you will need a extender unless you have a small door you want to gate. Aesthetically pleasing but if you are gating more than a pantry door get the extender.

Love this gate!

By MindyG

Comments about Munchkin Auto Close Metal Gate:

I've had this gate for about a month now, and I love it! My one year old daughter just finally started crawling last month, so this gate has come in very handy, as she is all over the place now! I am able to make sure she is safely contained where I want her to be with this gate. Some say that the instructions were hard to understand, but we were able to install the gate without even reading them. It was very easy. This gate is very sturdy and stays in place. I love the wide opening, and how easy it is for me to open and close (but not easy enough for my daughter to!). Munchkin always has high quality products, and this gate did not disappoint! I am thinking about getting another one!
