  • Large, magnetic collar key for the Dog Mate Electromagnetic 259 and the Cat Mate Electromagnetic 254, 256, and 363

  • Package comes with a set of 2

  • Activates the sense-operator on the pet door to unlock it

  • Fits on collars up to ¼” thick and ¾” wide

  • Collar not included

This set of two large magnetic collar keys is designed for the Dog Mate 259 model and the Cat Mate 254, 256, 363 models. Two keys are included just in case you need an extra down the road. The waterproof magnet fits onto your dog’s collar. When your pet approaches the door, the door senses the key, triggering the door to unlock and open. From there your pet will be able to push through the door.

 

Note: The manufacturer recently consolidated the 256 and 259 products into one model: the Cat Mate 363. The 256 Large Cat Door and 259 Small Dog Door are identical models, so the collar keys work for all of the models regardless.

  • Works but is HUGE! review by Pintsize Pup
    5 3 Works but is HUGE!

    Functionally, the collar key works fine and opens the door, but it is giant on my little dog. I wish there was a smaller version of this...

  • Size is a little big review by Kellie
    5 3 Size is a little big

    It works, but I could see smaller pets having trouble with the bulk.

  • Wish it was smaller review by Tammi
    5 3 Wish it was smaller

    My idea of collar tags are circular attachments like a keychain but this just looks so different. There is enough room to write our info on it which is nice. So far we've had it work successfully will update if needed

  • why dont the keys work review by Bubba & Dolly
    5 1 why dont the keys work

    My dogs are wearing the key to the door and it does not open. The magnets are not strong enough to open the door

    ed note - Sounds like a defective solenoid & corresponding warranty claim. Magnet strength isn't really an issue here.

Prior to installation: Make sure that the collar band is no greater than ¼” thick and ¾” wide. If not, the collar band will not fit through the loops on the collar key.

 

1. Remove the collar from your pet.

2. Thread the collar band through the loops on the back of the small dog magnetic key. On the back of the collar key, it will indicate which direction is front. Face the magnetic collar key towards your pet’s nose when the collar is attached.

3. Re-attach the collar to your pet’s neck.

4. Adjust the collar so that it sits under your pet’s chin, as opposed to the back of their neck.
