The gate is extremely flimsy

Do not like these gates. Barely stand up by themselves. Looked good online. Not worth the money.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Review 2 for Cardinal Gates Extra Tall Free Standing Black Pet Gate

I would say that the idea on this gate is great, but the structure was not sound. It claims to be a "free standing" gate, but the instructions say it's optional, and it's really only made to be flat on the floor between a door jam. Once you place the feet on the gate, it basically falls apart. I read another review and wasn't sure what they meant - but when I got it home, I understood instantly.
What happened is the makers put screws to guide the gate wider or narrower. There is one screw at the top/inside corner and the bottom/inside corner. That makes it when you have the gate with the legs in any position, fall down wherever those screws are (making the gate a V, instead of flat). The legs are HUGE! Long (so you can't get it very close to the wall), and tall.
