If the would swing freely before you installed it in the panel, then there must be something with the install causing it to bind. Did you ad a spacer to the wood panel to take up the width so it meets the minimum thickness? Perhaps the hole you cut is pushing the door out of shape when installed. It's been a while but I think the minimum thickness of the door was around 1.25". I would suggest removing it right away before the plastic frame comforts to the distorted position and stays there. Hope this helps.

What size of cats is this door suitable for?

Asked by Mark March 17, 2021

Answers

We have small and large cats. Larger cats can get through if they hunker down. If I did it again I would definitely get the larger option.

Is the frame paintable?

Asked by Blivet October 11, 2020

Answers

Did not paint ours as the door was white, but most plastic will hold paint as long as you scuff it with some fine sandpaper first and use a high quality paint. Depending on what color you want, there are some spray paints specifically for plastic and they stick like crazy.

I think so. I installed it in a door to the outside.

If you can cut the hole no problem. Then if the screws will not fasten through the resin you could cement/ glue it in place instead

You could install it that way, but the auto shut feature wouldn't work. It requires gravity to shut the door and magnets to maintain closure.

Yes, it will work. It is also easy to install. We did have to train the cats though to go in and out from the door.

can it be installed in a french door (replacing one of the existing panes with this pet door)

Asked by rtmk May 4, 2020

Answers

This is not a great idea. Maybe an engineered french door could stand up to the movement but a normal wooden french door may not. Just too much pressure at times

Our doors aren't really the right style for this so I had to improvise and mount it a little higher and one sided.. at first our cat wasn't fond of the height but three days later she's in and out like its always been there. **Her box is in our utility room so this gives her access and also a getaway from the new pup. This is not for an outside wall application. It does tend to sit partially open instead of returning to fully closed. Not an issue in our application.

Purchased Again for new House
We have had this door for years, just moved and bought a new one. The car fits and our dog and children do not. It can be locked and looks great/conveniently fits in door.

Good door the lock is the weak point
Nice door, but don't count on the lock to stop any determined cat to defeat the lock and get through the door. I used mine for one side of a Lexan window well cover vestibule. I made a custom cat door for my basement window. It faces the prevailing wind, so in the winter the door often blew open and hung open making for a cold basement. I added the vestibule with the door facing away from the prevailing wind. So far the vestibule is doing it's job, it must be sealed tightly with weather stripping. Here's a link to the video showing and reviewing the door. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6jf224XtWI There is also a video about the DIY basement window cat door: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYA2kcKhmUo

I had this door installed by a professional and it looks nice. Unfortunately, the locking mechanism for the swinging door is poorly made. It sits too low in the pet door frame and will not hold the door locked in any position and can easily be opened. I do not want my pets getting out in the evening - I have to completely block the pet door. I would not recommend if you need to lock the door. If the lock is not important - it looks great and works as expected.

The whole thing seems sturdy enough. The door is a bit tight and my cats took longer to get comfortable pushing it open than other doors. Because the of the tightness the door also does not come all the way down by itself. Not a problem right now with the mild weather, but it will be an issue in winter. There is also a wonky spot on the plexiglass too where the image gets distorted. Ideally I would like a replacement.

Placed in an indoor hollow door about a month ago. My cat is a 12 pound ragdoll and fits through the door. Learning curve for the cat of about a day. Do teach pet how to use it as my cat managed to get her paw stuck (she kept pulling at the door) but I was there to get her free. I’ve only used the locking mechanism once but it seemed to work fine. Overall, would buy again and recommend.

Super easy to install. Once I was able to borrow a jigsaw it only took a few minutes. It did take 2 people to stabilize the door during drilling, cutting, and tightening. We did have one little issue that was totally out fault, but if you're having trouble getting the holes to line up and the screws to properly tighten the door, make sure both pieces are right side up! In addition to the recommended tools, don't forget to put down tarp or something to catch the sawdust and bits of door and have a vacuum handy for cleanup. I used this in my bedroom door so my cats can get in and out while I can still close the door for privacy. I just wish the door flap was opaque or smoky colored instead of clear for even more privacy and light control, but I knew this when I chose it and I will alter it myself if need be after using it for a time. It looks great and is working well so far.

Delivery was quick and clean. Enjoyed the installation. No tricks. Template sized properly and does the job. With a molded door (see photo), making the cat door swing was tricky but keeping the cat door frame straight across front of door did the trick. In use for three months. Definitely meets my expectation. Cat loves it, dog is amazed by disappearing cat.

Several years ago I purchased a new door to my backyard that had a pet door installed. After probably 8 years, it had a crack in it - Still serviceable, but not very attractive. This was a replacement door for this pet door. It was a perfect fit and installed in minutes. The old door held up extremely well - I have multiple pets that use the door several times a day each. This is a great product with a clear acrylic hard door flap that holds up much longer than the soft flaps - yes, I have used doors with those and my young dog chewed it up in a couple of days. And it also has a toggle you can use to allow the door to only swing one way or not at all. If you have smaller pets (I have a pug, an eskimo spitz, and a couple of large male cats - All less than 30 pounds) - this is the best present you can give them. Access to their fenced in back yard and back to their home.

Door works fine for a cat or medium size dog. Door lock is OK but a bit cumbersome. Additional swivel bars along each side would give more comfort as to security.
