Q:can cats jump over this?
In my situation, the gate is right next to a kitchen counter and I could definitely see a cat jumping on the counter and then jumping over the gate. They wouldn’t be able to jump/climb over the gate itself unless there’s something close by to help them…like a kitchen counter.
Q:what is the spacing between the bars?
Hi Cee Cee, Sorry it took so long, I was at work when I got the message. The spacing between the bars of the gate are 2 1/2 inches. Where the gate meets the locking side you have about 3/4 inch (depends on how square your walls are). I used a larger insert for the sides, it has 3 bars, 2 inches where it meets the gate, then one inch for the middle bar and 2 inches for the third. I hope this helps. I bought 2 of these gates because I didn’t know how sturdy they were. I’m using it for 3 German Shepherds. It’s been almost a year and it’s as good as new! So, I didn’t need to buy a…

Q:Does this price include extensions or do I need to buy those separately?
the price is not including the extensions, you see what you buy!
Q:I have moulding on the bottom but not at the top. Can you adjust the top and bottom tension rods separately, and how far do they go out?
The top and bottom (left and right as well) tension rods can be individually adjusted. I think they go out ~3 inches on each side in my case and I believe there’s still room to go out more. You may want to check the spec for details.
Q:Is it possible to actually mount this gate using hardware (eg screwed into the wall/door’s wood) or can it only be pressure-mounted?
They actually come with these caps that you screw into the wall and it holds the gate in place more securely.
Q:how wide is the gate itself??
it will extend to about 32 inches, so about 26-28 inches for the gate itself. Good luck!
Q:What is the minimum widlth of a door it will fit in?
minimum width of opening is 28″.
Q:Does this gate have a stay open feature?
Not that I could find not in the instruction manual.
Q:If I put this in a doorway that has a door, can the door still be closed with the gate there?
It’s easy for my wife and I, but we bought it for our dog. The latching mechanism is on top, so your toddler may not be able to reach it.
Q:If I need to cover a are that is 46 inches wide, what’s the most optimal expansions I need to buy? I am unable to find the width dimensions of this.
I would buy a wider baby gate. The extensions aren’t very wide and not sure you could keep adding extensions to get to 46″ wide.
Q:Can this gate be narrow enough to fit in a 25.5″ opening?
Nope, it’s 26″ wide.
Q:One more question, does the gate swing in both directions or just one? It closes on it’s own too right? Thank you in advance!
The gate does swing in both directions, and you can close it with your hand, or give it a strong push and it will close on its own, otherwise it will go to the closed position but will perhaps not latch.
Q:Is the stated height from the top of the gate sides or the top of the gate door?
I just measured ours as set up: from floor to top of gate, 41 inches, to top of sides, 40 inches.
Q:Can you buy extensions to have this fit into wider spaces?
Yes you can. They are offered in a range of sizes. Pay close attention to make sure they are the extra tall variety.
Q:Can the gate swing open both ways?
Yes, the gate opens both ways and will always swing close.
Q:What is the max width included in the package?
I believe this is correct, got this from their description of the pack of 2 gates. NO idea why they didn’t state this here: Fits an opening of 28″ 32″ without extensions
Q:”Includes a 3.5″ extension and a 7″ extension” according to manufacturer description on other sites, but Amazon says “OPTIONAL” Are They Included?
NO!! They should be….the gate only measures 32 inches across!
Q:How wide is this and is this product witout the extensions? I’m confused. My doorway is 36″ wide, so do I need extensions?
The extensions are in the form of knobs that you turn until the space is adequately filled and the gate is tight, UP TO 36″. It works very well.
Yes, the bars are about 3 inches apart with about a 2 1/2 inch gap between bars.
Q:My opening is 43″ wide. How do I make this gate fit my opening?
I’m not sure, since my opening was smaller.
