Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PatD Horrible gate kit. Fell over after the first gust of wind!
If I could give 0 stars I would. 3 steps to install, and it will not stay up during the installation. I ended up having to build this on the driveway and haul it to the fence, only to have it fall outward at the first strong gust of wind. Now I have to disassemble the afternoon's worth of work and take this hunk of garbage back to the store. Don't waste your money on this.

Good buy for the cost. Just purchased my 3rd kit. Fairly simple to install but directions could be clearer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UCCRACING Great Gate - Worth the price!
Overall a great well built gate. Rating of 750lbs? No, not true! My only complaint is the Cedar 2x4's do not fit in the slots. But I could see maybe this being designed for redwood? or something a bit thinner?
We bought one of those anti sag gates a year ago, for the back yard, and that one is okay, but this one we installed for the front, and love it so much more!
Fairly easy to build, well built, works well, adjustment is easy! Sturdy design, I love it! We didn't use the hinge with the kit, as we wanted a pass through option to open from either side. Had to trim the cedar boards to be a little thinner to fit the metal, but it worked out great, looks and works great. So much better than the other lesser gate kit! Worth the extra 20 bucks!!!
As for the negative reviews, buy a 1.00 bag of self tapping screws that you like! And it will work great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigAl2 Great for smaller gates
I've used this kit for a 3 foot gate and a 6 foot gate, both 6 feet high wood picket. That covers their width range recommendation.
It works great for a 3 foot gate, very sturdy and doesn't sag after a couple of years.
It does not work as well for the maximum width of 6 feet. It does sag right away and keeps settling.
You can only tighten the gusset cable so much before the frame and S hook attachments start getting overstressed. I think 6 feet is too wide for this design. It's OK, but I would make two 3 foot gates instead.
They need to make the two side rails exactly the same, with the S hook gusset holes the same in both sides. They are the same except for those two holes so they can be mixed up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ninjamon Good gate kit for the money
Bought 3 of these 2 for my fence gate and one for my deck gate. They hold up better than any other gate kit that I've used only down side is the hardware screws strip easy unless the wood is wet so there is no strain on the screw. But would recommend you buy better screws.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrotherEloFudnucker Nice kit but get your own screws
This kit is easy and to the point. It makes building a gate a breeze. The 3" screws bend and strip easily so my suggestion is to purchase 3" galvanized wood screws to use instead of the ones included. The gate is set up for a single sided latch. You cannot open the gate from both sides without reaching over the gate to release the latch. I didn't realize this and I've had to engineer a cable pull to open the gate from the 'other' side of my 6 foot tall dog kennel. If I hadn't then I would be locked in my dog kennel with my dog. These are the only things that prevent me from saying the kit is PERFECT. I would indeed buy it again and recommend it.
