Rated 3 out of 5Â by Hounds Did NOT Hold up, Better Vinyl is out there
I bought this Gate at Home Depot, 3 years ago.
It is nice looking. And having heard many feedbacks about going with Vinyl Fencing, it sounded good.
I came home to find on of the vertical slats had snapped.
Leaving a 6" x 4' hole.
Vinyl thickness is thin. This was not visible until it broke.
So I asked for replacement and compared similar looking. So it would match the Neighbors (We bought them together 3 yrs ago).
I have large Dogs, 65 lbs. Who look out of the top of gate when something is going on in the front of the house. My Neighbor has a 10 lb Dog.
So I am fair... the Dogs that weigh 65 lbs or over can break this product.
So be it.
Good for some, not good for others.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Chels Buy a different gate
This gate came with directions that did not help at all. We carefully measured the distance between the fence posts while instaling those to be the 42 3/4 inches apart, but that left a 4 inch gap, not a 5/8 inch gap when we went to install the gate. The directions also tell you the hinged bracket is assembled, which it is not. The kit didn't even come with hinge pins or a latch and striker as the directions said it should, so we had to buy different hinge brackets and a latch. I called the 1-877 number written on the directions, they let me know the number had changed and transfered me to the new number, only to get an answering machine. I highly recommend you buy a different gate.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mario Did not last 2 years.
Within a two year period, both gates totally failed. We have no dogs or other animals jumping on them. Poor quality is my only answer.

Pros - I found the vinyl to be stronger than our older vinyl gate.
Cons - The metal plates and screws rusted, not all the screws and hardware are aluminum. The door could not be installed so that it was flush with the vinyl fencing and instead sticks out. The latch is not very good/sturdy. Installation instructions were very poor.
