You will see 3 basic types of gates. Free standing, pressure mounted, and wall mounted.
The pressure mounted gate is the most popular. A pressure mounted gate presses against doorways or walls on either side. Gates are width adjustable to fit your opening. Pressure mounted gates feature a walk through swing open door with a latch to keep the gate securely closed. All pressure mount dog gates have a wood or metal bar or plate along the floor that you will need to step over. This piece keeps the gate firmly in place. A pressure mount pet gate does not require drilling so your walls will not be marked up with holes when the gate is removed.
Freestanding gates or indoor pet fences are the most versitile pet barrier. These gates do not require a structure on either side as they are self supporting. A freestanding pet gate has either right angle base legs to keep it sturdy and in place or, no legs and is positioned in a "ZigZag" or"U" pattern. Freestanding gates are also width adjustable. These standalone dog gates come with or without a walk thru swing gate. Indoor pet barriers without a swing gate section, can be stepped over or moved aside to pass through to the other side. The freestanding gate is ideal for situation where you want to move the gate to another area or remove when not in use.
Wall mounted or hardware mounted gates require the included hardware to be installed to the wall or doorway. The retractable dog gate is one such wall mounted gate. This type of pet barrier does not require a support piece along the floor so there is nothing to step over.
