You CAN have style and safety all in one. The Auto Close Modern Safety Gate by Munchkin is the ultimate in baby gate technology, with a sleek wood and steel design that keeps little ones safe without sacrificing home decor. Equipped with a unique gravity-fed hinge, the Auto-Close does exactly what its name implies: it closes automatically when the handle is released. And with a little extra nudge in the right direction, the door stays open, because every parent could use an extra set of hands sometimes.

For top of stairs use, use all four wall cups and screws provided. Follow all instructions provided in the instruction manual.

Gate is fine - these people aren't very smart.

Once you have put together the gate,which took about 15 minutes, you would understand that the people complaining took no time to read the instructions. It clearly states what to do. The bolts fit fine, they aren't supposed to screw in, just hold tension. You have to tighten them extremely well, whi...see moreof the reviewer's review

Finally, a baby gate that looks great and works with my interior! This is a well built gate that can be moved from doorway to doorway. The suction cups are permanently installed on the door frames, but the gate section can be moved as needed. Perfect!

Have two of these gates to keep the little ones and the quadraped out of trouble. We installed them using the pressure pads and these guys are very sturdy. Very easy to install and reinstall when necessary. Very easy to operate even with just one available hand. Also looks very appealing and doe...see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought this gate almost 2 years ago and it has held up very well. Installing was relatively easy but if you are using all three of the extensions, it does take awhile to get the right fit. In my opinion the price is high, but it is definitely worth it. I lost one of the pieces of hardware that con...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is one of the pricier gates out there. It may be fine if you don't need to use the extensions, as others have noted, but if you need to use them, buy something else. The plugs are too tight of a fit and cannot be removed from the main gate to install the extensions. The glugs end up breaking...see moreof the reviewer's review

Bad extensions

Beverly 7 years ago
I had purchased the Deco Munchkin gate about two years ago from Target and was quite satisfied with it. It was necessary for me to move the gate to a different location requiring the extensions which I had long ago thrown out. While I knew I could probably order the extensions I had to install the g...see moreof the reviewer's review

I purchased this gate because of its study-looking construction and attractive styling. I was sadly disappointed. First, the instructions included are not useful. I even went to their website and watched a less than informative video. My real trouble began when I attempted to put on an extension p...see moreof the reviewer's review

Daniel 5 years ago
I bought this gate to keep my one year old from trying to climb up the stairs, and it broke before I could even install it. I have plenty of experience building and fixing things around the house and so naturally the first thing I did was go over the directions a few times, so I am sure I was doing...see moreof the reviewer's review
