Designed to open at the presence of your cat’s personal, implanted microchip, this is a simple, low cost solution for keeping out stray or neighboring cats. This cat door is perfect for chipped kitties that find collars bothersome! If you happen to have any pets that are not microchipped but would like to use the door, you can purchase a Cat Mate ID disc here that fastens onto your cat’s collar. The door is suitable for owners that have multiple cats, as it allows up to 30 different pets to be programmed. Simply place your cat in front of the door and push the button. The LED indicator will flash when it registers the new microchip or RFID key.

Say goodbye to constantly tending to your cat’s needs! This door features a manual four-way rotary lock, which gives you more control over your cat's actions while simultaneously preventing unwanted cats from entering. You have the option to set the door to completely locked or unlocked, in only or out only. The door only allows cats with a programmed microchip or RFID collar key to enter through the flap from outside for the “in only” and “unlocked” settings. Made with tinted, transparent polymer, the sturdy flap is easy for cats to see through for optimal comfort during use.

  • Worked well review by Maxwell
    5 5 Worked well

    This door works very well. I had the sureflap before and decided to try this Cat Mate door this time. Honestly, the quality is amazing as good as the sureflap and the door opens quickly for my cat. I cant think of anything bad to say about this door as it works well, insulates, the quality is great. I would recommend this definitely!!

  • works great, however... review by Sinead
    5 4 works great, however...

    This was the perfect door for my cats as the flap is easy to open and my kitties don't have to wear a collar or anything. But I wasn't aware that these doors only control access one way- my old cat can still go outside, which is what I didn't want.

  • Good Electronic Door for Lower Cost review by Renee
    5 4 Good Electronic Door for Lower Cost

    Good low-cost electronic door to keep out unwanted cats. It ships as a microchip only pet door. A collar key can be purchased if your cat isn't microchipped. It's a basic door and does a good job.

  • Nice inexpensive microchip door review by Matt
    5 4 Nice inexpensive microchip door

    One of my cats is chipped and won't wear collars, so this was a great inexpensive alternative to some other microchip cat door. I also have another cat that isn't chipped yet, so I just picked up one of the RFID tags compatible with this door and it works just fine.

  • Good door for the cost review by Cats love it
    5 4 Good door for the cost

    Other doors were way above my budget, but this does what I need and wasn't too expensive. Pretty easy to program too with was nice.

  • Love it review by Kim
    5 4 Love it

    (ed note: An alternative product that has both microchip and timer functionality is the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door.)

    I love my cat-mate-microchip-cat-door-360. The microchip feature is great as I don’t have to worry if one of my cats loses their collar. They can still get in and out without a collar. How cool is that? I also like that I can set the door so they can get in if they are outside, but once they come back in they cannot go back out. I feel it gives me a little more control over their movements. The only thing I wish the door had was a timer system so the door would automatically unlock at a certain time in the morning and my cats could go out on their own without bugging me until I get up and unlock the door for them. I also think the timer feature would be nice when I am out of town for a few days. That way they wouldn’t be cooped up until I return and let them out. I know the door has a feature so they can come and go whenever they want, but I really like to have my cats locked in at night. I see there is a cat-mate-microchip-cat-door with a timer feature so I may upgrade to that one in the near future. I would give the door 4 stars. Only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I wish it had a timer feature.

Read the following important notes prior to installing the pet door:

- It is crucial that you program all of your pets to the door before installing the pet door or making a cut-out. Test to make sure that the chip triggers the door properly as the pet passes through the flap.

- Do not cut into the tunnel on the flap frame. This will damage the sensor, causing the door to malfunction.

- If you are installing in a wall over 3⅜” thick you will need the Cat Mate Cat Flap liners.

- For any metal door you will need to re-tune the cat flap after installation.


Wood/Plastic Doors and Panels Installation

Prior to starting the installation:

Make sure that the bottom of the template is about level with your pet’s stomach. You can place it lower if you would like. If you choose to place it lower, make sure that it is not too low that it compromises the structural soundness of the door/panel or forces your pet to stoop when in use.


1. Use the exterior frame as the template for the cut-out. Place the frame on the panel and trace around the outside TUNNEL part of the frame.

2. Check that the line for the rough cut is level before making the cut-out. It is very important to cut the hole even and level. If it is not cut correctly the flap will not open and close correctly after installation. The actual cut should be 1/16” of an inch OUTSIDE the line from step 1.

3. To test that the door will swing properly, dry fit the frames in the cut-out.


For thin panels ⅛” - 1” in thickness:

a) Mark the 4 screw holes using the OUTSIDE frame (the one without the flap) on the exterior side of the panel.

b) Remove it and drill out holes ¼” in diameter. Check to make sure they are level.

c) If your door or panel is less than ⅝”, you will need to trim down the liner on the OUTSIDE frame using a hacksaw or plastic cutting disk.

d) Install the weather strip in the small channel on the back of the frame.

e) Fix the exterior frame to the outside of the door and screw the interior frame on from the inside. Use the 1½”  screws to attach them.

f) Check that the door is working then install the screw covers.


If door or panel is 1” - 3⅜” in thickness:

a) Drill out the screw holes on the INTERIOR frame (this will be the frame with the flap). The holes should be 3/16” diameter, check to make sure they are level.

b) Next, there is a small channel in the frame on the back where you need to install the weather seal strip.

c) Using the ½” screws to attach the exterior frame to the outside of the door/panel.

d) Now use the ⅞” screws to attach the inside frame to the interior of the door/panel.

e) Check that the door is working, then tap in the screw covers.


Wall Installation

Note: For installation, washers are required for the placement of the screws. Washers are not provided in this purchase.


1. Make sure that you measure the thickness of your wall and have the correct number of wall liners needed before making any rough openings in your wall.

2. For the bottom of the cut-out, make sure that it is level with your pet’s belly to ensure comfort when in use.

3. Next you will have to make a rectangular cut out in the wall that is 7” wide by 8” high. Using a level and pencil, mark the outside lines of your cut-out on the wall. Then check one more time that the line is straight and level.

Note: It is very important that you not cut into any wall framing, electrical, pipes, etc., so double check when picking a location for the pet door.

4. Now you will want to cut the hole out, by first cutting the interior wall and then removing any insulation.

5. Next, drill holes from the inside through the exterior wall and use those as pilot holes for the outside cut. Be sure to remeasure on the outside for accuracy.

Note: Tape up the inside hole with plastic sheeting before cutting the outside wall. This will make clean up much easier.

6. Cut out the exterior wall.

7. Take the pet door and remove the battery cover.

8. Remove the interior frame cover entirely by taking out the two screws on the backside of the frame. Then remove the two screws that are under the battery cover.

9. Remove the metal screw clips on the back using pliers.

10. Take the wall liners and fit them onto the flap frame whose cover you previously removed.

Note: The manufacturer recommends pushing them together firmly, but glue can be used if you feel it would be more secure.

11. The screw holes should be visible about halfway down the left and right side of the frame. You will need to put a washer under each screw.

12. Take the frame and screw it to the wall, putting the liners through the cut-out.

13. Put the inside frame cover back on using the screws you removed and replace the battery cover.

Note: Make sure that you do not trap any of the electrical wires.

14. Finally, fit the exterior frame on using two of the 1” screws. Then fit the hole covers and you are finished.
