Product Details


Give your cat the freedom they crave with the Cat Mate 234 and 235 Manual Cat Flaps. Designed for easy installation in doors between 0"– 2", these cat doors offer a secure and convenient solution for your feline friend to access different areas of your home or explore the outdoors. With lockable cat flaps and a durable plastic frame, you can trust these cat doors to provide reliable performance for years to come.

The Cat Mate 234 features a two-way locking system, allowing you to choose between locked and unlocked settings. This is an ideal option for those who want to manage their cat's movements during specific times of the day. Meanwhile, the Cat Mate 235 offers a four-way locking system, providing complete control over your cat's access by manually switching the lock to exit only, enter only, completely locked, or completely unlocked.

The tinted, opaque flap is designed with a magnet at the bottom, ensuring it stays in place after each use while preventing outside air from entering your home. The brush strips around the opening further help to minimize energy loss and keep drafts at bay. Each cat door is compatible with a variety of door materials, such as aluminum, hollow core, metal, solid core, and steel doors.

Installation is a breeze, thanks to the comprehensive instructions included with each cat door. For those planning to install the cat door into a wall, additional liners will need to be purchased separately. With a 3-year warranty and a 30-day return period, you can feel confident in your investment.

 

Features:

  • Two-way (Cat Mate 234) and four-way (Cat Mate 235) locking options for personalized access control.

Parts

  • Cutout template
  • Interior frame
  • Exterior frame
  • Screws and screw covers

Tools

  • Jigsaw
  • Measuring tape
  • Drill

Step 1 Position the Template

  • Position the template on the installation location and trace around it.
  • 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.

Step 2 Make the Rough Cutout

  • Prior to cutting, make sure that the cut-out line is level. Using a jigsaw, cut along the inside of that line, and be very careful to cut that hole square to the door.
  • The cut-out must be level and even for the pet door flap to swing freely and function correctly.

Step 3 Test Fit the Frames

  • Dry fit the frame cut-out to make sure that the pet door is swinging properly. Then follow the recommended instructions for your door or material thickness.

Step 4 Determine Door Thickness

  • Take a measuring tape and determine the thickness of your door/panel.
  • If you are installing your 234/235 door into a thinner panel, less than 1-¼”, it may be necessary to trim the interior frame (the one that does NOT have the swinging flap). Make sure to keep hands away from the blade and use a piece of wood to support the inside of the frame.

Step 5 For Doors/Panels 0" – 7/8” Thick

  • Put the INSIDE frame (one without the flap) on the inside of the door/panel and mark the screw spots with a pencil.
  • Remove the frame and drill out the 4 holes to 3/16” in diameter.
  • Choose the appropriate screws from the ones included in the instruction packet.
  • Position the OUTSIDE frame (one with the flap) on the exterior and screw the inside frame to it, sandwiching it to the door/panel.
  • Put on the screw covers.

Step 6 For Doors/Panels 7/8” – 2” Thick

  • Put the OUTSIDE frame (one with the flap) on the exterior of the door/panel and mark the screw spots with a pencil and drill them out to 3/16” diameter.
  • Screw the inside frame on interior of the door using ½” screws.
  • Screw exterior frame on the outside of the door with the ¾” screws.
  • Put on the screw covers.
  • Enjoy your new Cat-Mate 234/235.
