NO! It doesn't. I wish it did. You'd have to tie it open or use some type of clip.
It should have a latch but it doesn't.

Yes, it does if you set it up that way. The gate has screw out pressure ends on both tops and both bottoms. If you set the gate up with the tops tilted just a little towards the open side, it will hang open. If you put the tops tilting a little towards the closed side, it willo flop closed. If you set the gate perectly straight possibly it would stay where you put it. Hopes this helps.

Yes they can, since some of the openings are wider than others. It depends how much space you have between the last bar and the wall.

This gate has adjustable screw type rubber padded bolts at the top and bottom of both sides to fit in a door frame and also allow for use with walls with floor molding base boards. If your spindles are round, I don't think that this gate would work for you.

The gate is pressure-mounted by two 1-inch circular spots on each side. I would worry that pressure-mounting this gate to a spindle might not be secure enough. It works best between two solid walls.

Our opening is 37"wide. The gate came with two extensions. We only used one. The dimensions of the gate are on the package, but you can buy extra pieces to extend up to 52".

Here are the dimensions listed on the web site. The print is small, so it's a little hard to find on the page: 29"-52" W X 30.5" H. It's adjustable from 29" to 52" - it comes with two extra extender pieces. Our opening is 43" so we only had to use 1 of the extenders.

The problem with adding more extenders is that the gate becomes less stable and more wobbly. I wouldn't add more than what is included in the gate package. My dog would be able to knock the gate down if another panel was added.

Question

On the extensions can one side be offset more than the other?

With the area I want to put this one side is a curved wall so the gate has to be put against a flat wall which will be covered by this wall. The main opening is only 36" give or take. So, the door within the gate need be within that space. I hope this makes sense, because I do not have a camera/cell phone. That's right no cell phone. In short, per my question will the extension(s) add to one side to compensate for an area like this? If you still need a picture maybe I can find a camera...

I hope I am reading your question right.

The gate frame has an opening of 27" You can put the extensions on either side of the gate frame. There are 4 threaded spindle rods that you either put in the gate frame or the extension(s) -- two rods on each side. You tighten the four spindle rods to fit your opening.

I recently bought two of these gates. One for a standard door and the other for a 56" opening between our foyer and liviing area. For the larger opening, I put the gate frame in the area we wanted to walk through and put the 24" extension on the other side. I ordered the 24" extension directly from Carlson's website. It took me about 5 minutes to put the gate with the extension up! You have to tighten the 4 rods. No tools involved. I think the gates will work well when our new puppy comes home.

It would take more time if you were going to attach the gate to the wall. Hope this helps.

It should work for you. The main section with the door/gate is just under 32" which can be adjusted out a little with the knobs. This kit includes 2 extensions: a 6", and a 12" panel; and you can order more extension panels if you need them--they also come in 4" and 24". The panels can be added onto either side of the main gate panel, in any combination. I have an opening with french doors where I use 2 12" panels(I had to order an extra panel someplace else), then the main gate panel, and then a 6" panel so that the door is positioned in line with one of the french doors.
