The directions say it is easy to install, well maybe for someone who has woodworking tools and can grasp math. Thank God for my husband that he knows and has these tools. Love the cat door though, all my cats fit through it but the dogs don't. Saved me a lot of money on cat food.
I have bought these before but this is the first time I have used it on an ice chest for a winter feral cat box. It is easy to install if you have the tools whether it is a door or ice chest.
Good instructions and built sturdy. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was because after we got it installed the door flap started to rub on the frame and made it just a pinch harder to push open. My cats haven't figured it out quite yet but they will eventually.
This cat door will not last a determined cat more than a couple of months if you're using the locking mechanism. Once your cat cracks the cheap plastic door (that isn't replaceable) it's only a matter of time until the whole thing is useless (I'm talking door shattered, now just a hole in your house useless within months of installation). Because of the door's unique shape, you will not be able to install a different cat door in the same space without sizing up and recutting the door. I'm giving two stars because I believe it would have lasted longer if we had not used the locking mechanism but that's kind of the whole appeal of this door. Learn from my mistake and don't buy this product or your cat will show you who actually runs your home with a quickness.
Cutting the space filler for in between the doors is ridiculous. I would have gladly paid an extra couple bucks to have it include different sizes to insert. Also the screws need to be a locking type. As they are now you can't tighten them too much or the whole thing warps and the door won't swing freely. I would be upset if I bought this for exterior use. I'd have had to use half a tube of caulk to seal the thing. That said, it does function well. The lock works good against very persistent cats. The template really helps for installation. I just taped it right to the door and cut along the lines with a scroll saw after drilling the corners. I don't regret the purchase, I just think it could have been thought out better .
Best cat door we've ever had. It got delivered in one day. Just trying to get up to 50 characters....................
The door flat for this model is terrible, I have two dogs and the door didn’t even last year. When I contacted them about a replacement they didn’t even bother to answer me and I saw that many many people had asked for replacements and pet safe does not make one. I’m kind of stuck now because I have a opening and I think I’m just gonna have to buy a whole new door of a model I don’t like just to replace that flap.
Actually this door does not fit where the previous one was. I contacted the company, PetSafe, and they were extremely helpful in getting me replacement parts. But I will need to return this one.
We like this kitty door, but after 3 years, the plexiglass door became brittle and my boys shattered it. Thanks to Chewy for helping me get the replacement! We are going to reinforce this one prior to installation.
We have this installed in a plastic bin as a shelter for our outdoor cat. Obviously, I couldn't just cut a huge hole in it or else rain and snow and wind would get in. He's about 12 pounds and has no problem using it. The only issue is that sometimes the door doesn't shut all the way, leaving it a little open. Mine also didn't come with instructions for some reason and I couldn't figure out how to use the screws with the plastic tub, so I just duct taped it. It's been holding up for weeks through a tropical storm, so A+ for durability. When the local skunk learns how to use the door I'll have to upgrade to a microchip cat door!
