Thanks for your question. The door on the AutoLock Pressure Gate (Model PG-35) only opens in one direction. The handle has a red button on it. The door opens in the direction of the red button. You can install the gate with the red button nearest you, so it opens inward, toward you. You can also install the gate with the red button opposite you so the gate door opens outward.
We believe it's easier to have the red button on the side nearest where you'll access the gate. It's easier to open it that way versus reaching over the gate and trying to open it "backward." Best to be on same side as the red button.
In the photo below, the red button is visible on the handle. This gate door would swing inward, toward the dog.
