Description

This Cat Mate Electromagnetic Cat Flap is paw-fect for doors and walls. It’s an effective way of keeping stray pets and other animals out of your home, while giving your cat the freedom she needs. Every purchase comes with a small magnet that doubles as an identification tag and attaches to your cat’s collar to grant her access. While your cat can exit the door without the magnet, she will need to have it on to re-enter. The easy-to-use four-way locking system allows you to choose between unlocked, locked, in-only and out-only, giving you full control. This flap is designed with a transparent material made from durable polymer, which allows your curious pet to peak through. It also features a draft and weatherproof brush sealed flap with a magnetic closure to protect your home from wind and rain.

Key Benefits

Instructions
  1. It is recommended that the bottom of the hole is approximately the same level as your pet's stomach.
  2. Place this template in desired position on door and draw round completely.
  3. Prior to cutting the hole, drill 2 holes of approximately 1/4" diameter in top corners.
  4. Use an electric jig-saw to cut along the inside of the drawn line. Be careful to cut hole square to the door, particularly with thicker doors. Ensure that the frames are free-fitting in the hole.
  5. Determine the thickness of the panel in your door (see fig. 5).

For Panels 0 - 7/8 inches:

  1. Position interior frame on inside of door and mark the 4 screw positions.
  2. Remove frame and drill screw clearance holes in panel to approx. 3/16 inch diameter.
  3. Select the appropriate screws for the panel in your door (see fig 8).
  4. Then, using the appropriate screws and working from the inside of the house, tighten the interior frame to the exterior frame. When happy with installation cover screw heads with caps supplied.

For Panels 7/8 inches +:

  1. First screw interior frame to inside of panel with short 1/2 inch screws.
  2. Next drill out the 4 screw holes in the exterior frame to allow close clearance on screw. (Recommended drill 3/16 inch diameter.)
  3. Finally fix exterior frame to exterior of door using 3/4 inch screws. When happy with installation cover screw heads with caps supplied.

    Poor Design

    By CatMom on Aug 10, 2021

    The latch that catches the door to prevent the door from opening for a stray, gets hooked on the door if something without a magnet pushes on the door or if your cat tries to get through to quickly. Ones it's hooked the latch won't release even with the magnet. Also, the door is harder to push open than a regular flap so if you have a timid kitty or an unmotivated kitty they may just give up. So between being more difficult than their previous cat door and unreliable, our cats won't use it on their own. I'm really disappointed.

    Magnetic cat/dog door

    By NoStrays on Jun 25, 2021

    I ordered this door for my cats. I was leaving town a lot & finally realized that while I was gone, I had several strays coming in my house through the old cat door, hanging out, eating my cats food, etc. Yikes! I read some reviews on this and was skeptical. I LOVE THIS DOOR! The only thing we had to adjust was putting a small weight on the inside of the flap because it wasn't shutting completely after the cats would come in. Easy peasy. It works like an champ & now only MY cats can get in and out :) Also, the magnets on the cats collar are small. My cats are 8 years old, have never had a collar & the magnet does not bother them at all:)

    Speedy Delivery

    By Quantumnal on Feb 17, 2021

    Our Cat Mate cat door was over a decade old, so we were glad to find the exact size we needed on Chewy. Took about 5 minutes to install. The winter wind isn't blowing right in anymore. It took a few tries for the cat to figure out that he had to push a little harder since the magnet is so strong on the new one, but he got it.

    Secure Enough

    By IrisAndDaisy on Dec 3, 2020

    The magnetic release is simple technology but enough to secure the flap from unwanted critters such as raccoons or even other cats (who aren't also wearing magnets on their collars). The only thing that I'd like to see, that is standard on a lot of other cat and dog flaps, is a solid cover that you slide on that completely covers the flap. There is a 4-way locking switch where you can lock the door in both directions, but I hate to see the poor cats banging their heads on the flap trying to get out when I lock it.

    Only works in one direction.

    By Monnie on Oct 7, 2020

    I purchased this to allow only two of my three cats to go out into the cat pen. The diagrams sure seem to indicate the choices are 1) fully locked, 2) fully open, 3) exiting only, or 4) entering only. But in fact this will not let you control which animals can exit your house, only which animals can enter. That's fine if all you want to do is keep out intruders. But if you want to control which animals can exit, then this is NOT for you. (Thankfully, I received full refund with no hassle from Chewy.)

    Don’t bother

    By Juju on Apr 12, 2020

    I love the idea of this. And for some this may work great. But for my cat Chloe this didn’t help her at all. First of all, there is a delay in the unlocking of the door and you have to get the magnet just right for it to work and open the latch. It would be better if when the cat came closer, the door would lift up and stay up for 3- 5 seconds so the cat to go inside.

    Works as expected BUT

    By Jean on Apr 7, 2020

    I installed 4 months ago. Takes about a week to train cats and works as expected. My cat went running out and it ripped the door right off and I can't find replacement flap. I will buy another one because it really does work well. Beware though, it does not fit in exterior walls and there is no extender that fits this model.

    Don't waste your money

    By Sunny on Dec 31, 2019

    It has lock, unlock, in, and out dial options. The unlock works going out with a loose swinging door, but to come back in they need the fob on their collar, which would be great if it didn't make a loud clicking sound that makes my cats jerk back scared, which locks the door again, only to repeat the cycle, and the cat never makes it back in. They also have to have their head really, really close to the bottom of the opening or it re-locks. I would recommend possibly trying a more expensive brand? It may have been just the way I read it, but I thought the fob would auto open the door all the way for a few seconds, it only makes the lock button go down so that they could push through, IF It has lock, unlock, in, and out dial options.

Bummer!!! I'm going to try lowering the fob on their collars and see if that makes a difference. It's still going to make that sound though.. … more

    Easy out, not in.

    By Arwen on Dec 2, 2019

    My special needs baby was able to use the flat side of the door to get out of her room with ease, but when it came to the tunnel (Where the magnet tag comes into play) she had too much trouble. The sensor, or the tag magnet, or both, aren't strong enough. The kitty needs to be very specifically placed in the tunnel for it to work. Returned to Chewy, not their fault, CatMate didn't do their job. We replaced it with the Super Selective Microchip & RFID tag door, which works swimmingly!

    When Your Door Needs a Door!

    By MDevilMGT on Jun 28, 2019

    It's great for my kitten to get out but she struggles with getting in because the range of the sensor it's so small... Otherwise it's a great addition to my home!
