Questions & Answers

I need a straightforward answer to my question. Will the door close even after I install and lock the latch? My worry is that the door will close while my cat is inside with. The main thing is does this stop the door from closing as well as keeping it open a certain amount?
Answer by ChewyDec 21, 2018
The Door Buddy features an adjustable strap to help keep door opening to fit your needs. However, if the door is push in with enough force the door will close.

If removed, is the adhesive easily removed from door? What stops the door from closing from.the inside?
Answer by ChewyDec 15, 2017
This door latch is easily removable. Simply peel and stick to the door and frame when in use. Once you insert the hook, there's a latch to lock it in place.

Will this work on pocket door?
Answer by ChewyAug 01, 2018
Door Buddy works with standard and non-standard doors and doors with all handle types. It works great on pocket doors, double doors, and even bi-fold doors.

Could this be used with a Regalo walk-through gate? I want the “walk through” to open enough to let my cats through but not my 50lb dog. The gate is in a doorway but there’s no door.
Answer by ChewyAug 01, 2018
Door Buddy works with standard and non-standard doors and doors with all handle types. It works great on pocket doors, double doors, and even bi-fold doors. Door Buddy also comes with 3M VHB tape which is specifically designed to adhere to the majority of door surfaces.

Great alternative for cat door

We have our litter box in the laundry room. I've been putting off cutting a hole in the door for a cat door, and just happened to see this on chewy. It's so easy and does the trick. I may still install an opening in the door someday but as long as this works, I'm sticking with it.

Must have for dog and cat owners

My roommate got a lab puppy so she is very destructive at this point in time. My bedroom is small so I don’t want to lock our two cats in all day with their food. This strap is perfect even when she body slams the door it holds. My roommates cat is a little thick/chonky but he has no problem sliding in the door. I did have to adjust it to the biggest setting.

What a lifesaver!

We ordered this in desperation since our dog just couldn't keep his nose out of the litterbox in the bathroom. This latch was so easy to install, had instructions on how to install a door that pulled or pushed to open, is adjustable, and still looks pleasing to the eye!

Lets the skinny cat through and keeps the chunky one out

I've been trying to figure out a way to restrict food for my chunkier cat, while still letting the skinny one have constant access to dry food since he likes to nibble throughout the day. I was able to adjust the Door Buddy to just the right width so Mr. Skinny can get through to the bowl of food in the closet, while Miss Chunky can't quite fit! Works perfectly.

Works great!

Paired with a door stopper, this latch works great to keep dogs out & away from your cat's food & litter areas. My cat weighs 15 lbs & can still fit in the door on the shortest strap set, & my extremely skinny dog cannot fit through! the latch part is easy to move for easy access to the room as needed. Great buy, glad I found it here!

So useful!

Love this! We bought two to keep the dog away from the cat litter, and one to allow access by the cats to a room without pushing the door fully open. Very easy to install, unobtrusive appearance, very happy with this product.

Large animal household - works!

We have a 20-24lb cat and got a giant-breed puppy 7 ish months ago. He LOVES to jump on the cat, so I wanted to give the cat a safe escape. The dog is now over 50 lbs and has yet to beat the door buddy. I chose to set it up in the "greater strength" style that shortens the strap, but my cat can still squeeze through the gap in both directions. I wish I had the set with the stopper so the door doesn't accidentally shut.

Great Product

I love the fact that it is adjustable and works just like it is advertised. Easy installation without tools.

Brilliant Product

We’ve always tried to keep our dog from getting some “sneaky snacks” from the litter box & this product is EXACTLY what we needed to allow the cats to freely enter the room where their litter box is without the (45lb) dog going in there afterward for a treat. After buying one to test, we bought two more for the downstairs litter box that’s in a “Jack-and-Jill” bathroom. To solve the concern about the door closing accidentally, we bought one with the foam door stop and it works perfectly to keep the door of concern from latching closed. Not sure what the issue is from reviewers with dogs chewing through the strap; we put ours at eye level so the dog can’t get to it. Perfect product! Wish we’d found this sooner!

doesn’t work

it’s held together by a simple sticker and if any animal pushes it comes off with ease
