This is a "must have" product.  Time owned: more than 12 months
This EZ-Gate is great for my portable station (my ARES "Go Box"). It allows me to use the AC/DC power supply and be confident of uninterrupted power should I lose commercial power by automatically switching over to an external 12v. Deep Cycle Battery.
(Battery Not Included - LOL!).

It is well made, and uses a full metal enclosure. While it's footprint makes it an obvious choice for use in a "Go Box", I also use one at home for the base station.

What I really like is the ability to use locking clips to secure the Anderson Power Poles at all three connections. This gives me peace of mind that they will not self disconnect.

In my "Go Box", I connect the output port of the EZ-Gate to a West Mountain Radio Rigrunner, which acts as a fused, DC power distribution block for the two radios, TNC and misc. accessories.

And, best of all...
The price is about 1/2 of a competing product that I had been considering.

Bottom Line:
BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK!! 
Product is in production.
