Resetting the gate is super easy. All you do is step on the tipped-up end of the bar and it comes up and locks in. I know this product is tough on the outside because I watched my dad get a little happy and plow his 450 through it and flip it over, but it still worked and nothing broke.The internals are a little delicate. You have to be careful installing or replacing the batteries or you'll tear out the conducting wires. Also, the hold-down stakes could be a little longer, and I wish the gates came with a carrying case; the cardboard boxes are getting worn out. But I truly think whether you're a pro or just an average beginner, the $279 Holeshot Race Gates are a cool tool and a fun way to improve your starts. Be careful removing batteries and have a friend use the remote plugged in and you'll see what I mean.
