Questions & Answers

25 Customer Questions

How close do the cats have to be for the flap to recognize their microchip?
Answer by ChewyAug 31, 2018
A sensor detects and quickly reads the microchip once the cat puts its head in the tunnel to push the flap open. Note that the SureFlap Microchip Cat Flap does not activate if your cat is just wandering in front of the flap, inside or outside the house.

we have racoons that come in and eat the cat food now. will this be strong enough to keep them out?
Answer by ChewySep 24, 2019
The SureFlap Microchip Cat Door picks up on your cat’s unique microchip or collar tag while keeping unwanted guests out.

I already have a hole cut. What size would the opening be?
Answer by ChewyAug 28, 2018
The installation hole measures 6 1/2 inches long x 6 3/4 inches wide. The exterior frame measures 8 1/4 inches long x 8 1/4 inches wide. The Tunnel depth should measure 2 3/4 inches. The glass mounting installation hole should measure 8 3/8 inches (optimal size) - 10 1/4 inches diameter.

How quickly does the flap open and close? I have one cat that I want to have access to a certain room but I don't want the others to follow her so it would have to open and close quickly if there is another cat by her.
Answer by ChewyOct 14, 2017
The device can be set as low as 2 seconds to relock after the cat has passed through.

4 months in-still going strong

I actually use this mounted backward, to keep my indoor cat inside while letting my outdoor cats out. It works great. One of my cats is fat, one only has use of three feet, and neither of them have had issues. It does make a noise, but I'd imagine that if your cat wants out badly enough they'll eventually get used to it. All of my cats figured out how to use this flap incredibly quickly, just as if it were a traditional one though.

waaaay too tiny

I have a Surepet patio door which I love. I have a Surepet microchip feeder which I love, but if they think anything but an eight week old kitten can fit through this, they gotta be crazy. Surely Chewy gets this returned all the time for that reason. My kitty could only go through by pulling himself through on his belly, ‘cos there was no room to bend his knees. I will say this though, my fattest kitty got himself through because there was food inside which was the very reason I wanted him out. *There are no air holes because I realized the futility of that effort.

Racoons got in

Got this to keep out raccoons. Well, that was a joke. They figured it out very quickly and got back into the house. Had to spend even more money and bought the High Tech Pet Products door which functions like a guillotine. A metal sheet slides down and locks into a slot in the frame. I'm happy to say that the little blighters couldn't get past that one!

almost worked great

This door worked for a while until my cat figured out that she can turn and pull the whole knob off with her claws to “ unlock” the door and let herself out. If the knob ere more secure I would give 5 stars but now it is pretty much useless.

Pretty good, works well

Ok, so yes, you have to cut a hole in your door, no big deal. Couple drill bits, some masking tape to protect the door from unwanted saw scratches, a Phillips screw driver and a jig saw with appropriate blade for wood or metal doors is really all you need. Really easy to do. It does fit modern doors. I installed mine in a 6 year old insulated metal door without issue, see pics for fitment ideas. Onto other customer concerns; the click noise of the little motor releasing the door catch may be a hang up for some cats, but it wasn't for mine. A little encouragement with treats or food and he was using it the same day. Its really not that loud. Programmed to the cat's microchip without any issue, follow instructions- it works well. I actually did this prior to installation. I installed batteries prior to mounting in the door for convenience sake of holding the door to the cat that way once it was installed, it was already programmed, made things easier. Can be latched so door moves in one direction and not the other, door moves in both directions or not at all. We have many raccoons on a wooded lot. 2 months in, we have yet to see one put any effort into attempting to get inside, so far so good. Will not unlock to allow other cats or animals in unless you program that animal to the door, so we're good there. Our metal door has not seemed to affect the operation of the device with no additional parts added. Door can be latched closed from both directions which makes it nice to keep kitty inside or to hold the clear door for cleaning purposes. Uses 4 AA batteries, easy to change when you have to. Overall, quite pleased with it.

Great product! Just not for all cats.

I installed this on a plastic bin that had a litter box in it. Our elderly, anxious, female cat was having issues because the alpha male of our house kept using her litter box. The goal was to give her a private washroom. Unfortunately, the clicking noise that sounds when she is near (by reading her microchip) is alarming to her. Even with the noise disabled, we couldn’t get her to push the unlocked door open. We tried lots of treats and tried to introduce her slowly too it, but she just wasn’t a fan. For kicks, I tried training my alpha cat and he was able to use it great! Too bad it wasn’t for him.

Does not keep racoons out

This door doesn't work for racoons because, unlike cats, they can just pull the door outwards towards them and go in the door despite not having the RFID chip. My racoon friend has defeated this door numerous times already, so I am back to square one. And it is a smallish door so my cat doesn't like to go through it unless I stand on the other side shaking some treats, so now he just makes a ruckus until I open the doors for him. Zero stars do not recommend.

Mixed review

I love the concept, and it works, but the click noise scares my cats. I can't get them to use it yet, might have to return it.

OK, but not as hoped

I have had this cat door for a couple years now and while it doesn’t work as advertised, it is used and the cats love it. Programming the chips was fairly easy and straightforward, so I went ahead and had it installed in a window. That cost almost as much as the cat door. The glazier said glass would shatter and so replaced the double pane with plexiglass. Getting the guys to use it was another matter. The clicking is scary and it takes a bit of a nudge even when it is unlocked. And for one of the cats, the click didn’t sync with when her head was right in the front of the door. Then one night, it started clicking like crazy with no cat around, so I pulled the batteries out. I taped over the locking brackets and that’s how we’ve used it ever since. It is a really nice cat flap. I was worried about drafts, but it is very stable with insulating fuzz around the edges; even in strong wind, it’s fine. It is smallish, but one of our guys is an 18 pounder and he manages to squeeze through. If I was reviewing the flap without the microchip reader, I’d definitely give it 5 stars.

Works Great

Stray cats started coming through my cat door. This senses the chip in my cats and only lets the correct ones indoors. To program, you press a button and then put the cat through the door. When the chip is recognized, the door unlocks and lets your cat in. The lock makes a click sound, which at first made my cats nervous. But their quest for food allowed them to overcome their fear, and now they come through with no problem. And the stray cats are locked out!
