My husband made this for me to keep the dogs out of the kitchen. We were constantly tripping over the step over gate we previously used and he got fed up and threw this together one night. It cost us a total of $7.00! Not bad. We used the the hinges and handle from one of the old cabinets from our kitchen, the boards from one oak pallet and the 7.00 was for the ball clasp that keeps it shut. It’s nice and light so it swings easy.
