The PetSafe (formerly Staywell 400) Magnetic 4-Way Cat Door - White

Formerly called the Staywell 400 Magnetic Cat Flap, this cat door provides security against intrusion by strays without requiring batteries or house current! The secret? The collar key itself is a stronger magnet that actually unlocks the flap allowing access by your pet but not by other pets or strays.

As the flap dimension is relatively large for a 'cat' sized door, PetSafe feels it to be suitable for cats up to 15 lbs. You should make your own test by simulating the opening and calling your cat through with a treat.

This cat flap is self-framing from 0" to 2 1/4". tunnel sections may be added one at a time as needed for installation in a wall. Because it's self-framing, it may be installed in any door including solid or hollow core, metal (aluminum or other non-magnetic material), insulation filled etc.

It should not be installed in a door made from steel or other magnetic material.

Hot Tip Take any magnet and see if it's attracted to the door you intend to use. If it is, the door is magnetic.

Reversed installation (turning the pet door around so that it controls from the inside rather than from the outside) will void the warranty.

Important installation point These PetSafe Magnetic cat flaps should be installed high enough so that the collar key actually touches the tunnel when the cat approaches. If not mounted high enough for this to happen, the door may not respond.

We would not recommend this door for dogs due to the requirement that the key actually touch the sensor.

A 4-way lock is also included which has been significantly improved over the original design.

  • Works well review by Tipi
    5 4 Works well

    I installed the cat door and put the magnet and collar on her. She goes in and out but our neighbor's cat can not enter. That was the goal in the first place. Excellent product.

  • works until? review by inadore
    5 3 works until?

    works until the raccoons find out that they can open it with their fingers - no magnet needed.
    So, in our case, the door is useless for the cat.
    A door which needs a magnet from both directions would be better.

Limited Warranty for PetSafe Certified Refurbished Products

Effective January 1, 2010

For purposes of this limited warranty, “PetSafe Certified Refurbished Products” means buy-back products, returned products, pre-owned products, and/or scratch & dent products that PetSafe has:

  • Fully tested 
  • Refurbished by replacing any defective modules identified during testing 
  • Thoroughly cleaned and inspected 
  • Repackaged (including appropriate manuals, probes, wire, new boxes, etc.) 
  • Re-inspected prior to being sold 

PetSafe Certified Refurbished Products may have small cosmetic blemishes. PetSafe warrants that each PetSafe Certified Refurbished Product will be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of ninety (90) calendar days from the original date of purchase. During the warranty period, PetSafe will, at its option, replace with new or refurbished products or parts, any products or parts determined to be defective. In the event of a product defect, these are your only remedies. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.

This limited warranty covers only product issues caused by defects in materials or workmanship during ordinary consumer use and does not cover product issues caused by any other reason, including, but not limited to, product issues arising out of or related to commercial use, acts of God, misuse, limitations of technology, or customer modification of any part of the PetSafe Certified Refurbished Product. This limited warranty does not cover consumables, such as treats, batteries, or fuses. This limited warranty is invalid if the factory-applied serial number has been altered or removed from the product. This limited warranty is valid only in the United States.

All express and implied warranties, including without limitation any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, are limited in time to the term of this limited warranty. No warranties, whether express or implied will apply after the expiration of the limited warranty period. Some states do now allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so this limitation may not apply to you. Except as provided in this warranty and to the extent permitted by law, PetSafe is not responsible for direct, special, incidental or consequential damages resulting from any breach of warranty or condition, or under any other legal theory. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion or limitation may not apply to you.
