Works great and is exactly as described! We use it to keep the dog from getting to the litter box, but the small door is perfect to allow the cat access. This is our second one because we loved the first one we bought and have two rooms needing to keep the dog out.
I have 2 openings to my formal living room and they are 48 inches wide. These gates fit perfectly in the openings. I like that I can walk through the gate and not have to step over or unhook something like with my previous gates. Also since these are metal they are much sturdier than the wooden ones I had before. I’ve had smaller versions of this gate for over 10 years and they’ve held up very well.
