Step 1 For Wood Doors:

  • Place the exterior frame in the desired position on the door. We recommend the bottom of the flap to be installed approximately 6” above the ground for utmost comfort.
  • Trace a line around the flap opening. Use an electronic jigsaw to cut 3/16” outside the line.
  • Determine the thickness of the door panel to determine required screw length.
  • Hold the interior and exterior frame in position and mark the two screw holes.
  • Remove the frames and drill screw holes in the panels to ¼” diameter.
  • Position the interior frame on the inside of door and screw exterior frame to it by using appropriate screws for door thickness. (If necessary, cut supplied screws to length). Fit in the two screw caps.
  • Remove batteries for at least two minutes after installation to allow the cat flap to retune itself to its new location for optimal performance.

Step 2 For Metal Doors:

  • Place the exterior frame in desired position on the door. We recommend the bottom of the flap to be installed approximately 6” above the ground for utmost comfort.
  • Trace a line around the OUTSIDE of the frame. Use an electronic jigsaw to cut ½” INSIDE the line. Be careful to cut the hole square to the door, particularly with thicker doors. Ensure that the interior frame is free fitting in the hole.
  • Position the interior frame on the inside of door and screw exterior frame to it by using appropriate screws for door thickness. (If necessary, cut supplied screws to length). Fit in the two screw caps.
  • Remove batteries for at least two minutes after installation to allow the cat flap to retune itself to its new location for optimal performance.

Step 3 Fitting RFID Collar Keys

  • If desired, record your cat’s details on the ID disc label by writing on the label in pen and sticking the clear waterproof cover over the writing.
  • Attach the Disc directly to the collar, NOT from a ring attached to the collar.
  • Any other metal will interfere with the sensing system on the door.
  • This way it is as high as possible and parallel to flap. We recommend the use of a fabric collar without large metal attachments, like other ID tags, etc.

Step 1 Prepare for Rough Cut Out

  • 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.
  • For the bottom of the cut-out, make sure that it is level with your pet’s belly to ensure comfort when in use.
  • 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.
  • It is very important that you do not cut into any wall framing, electrical, pipes, etc., so double check when picking a location for the pet door.

Step 2 Make the Rough Cutout

  • Now you will want to cut the hole out, by first cutting the interior wall and then removing any insulation.
  • 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.
  • Tape up the inside hole with plastic sheeting before cutting the outside wall. This will make clean up much easier.
  • Cut out the exterior wall.

Step 3 Prepare the Frames

  • Take the pet door and remove the battery cover.
  • 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.
  • Remove the metal screw clips on the back using pliers.
  • Take the wall liners and fit them onto the flap frame whose cover you previously removed.
  • The manufacturer recommends pushing them together firmly, but glue can be used if you feel it would be more secure.

Step 4 Secure the Frames

  • 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.
  • Take the frame and screw it to the wall, putting the liners through the cut-out.
  • Put the inside frame cover back on using the screws you removed and replace the battery cover. Make sure that you do not trap any of the electrical wires.
  • Finally, fit the exterior frame on using two of the 1” screws. Then fit the hole covers and you are finished.

FAQ

How does the LCD display work?

The Cat Mate Electronic I.D. Disc microchip cat flap's LCD display shows cat location, exit lock status, and the low battery indicator.

What's the main difference between this door and the Cat Mate Elite 305 Super Selective cat flap?

The Cat Mate Elite Super Selective cat flap is not a microchip pet door. It requires an RFID collar tag on your cat's collar to give your pet access inside and out. If you have a cat that cannot wear a collar ID, it would not be a good option for you.

Can I install this dog door into a wall?

Yes. The Cat Mate Elite Microchip Cat Flap is self-lining and can be installed into surfaces up to 4" thick, making it great for installing into single and double glazing, doors and door panels, and walls. If installing into a wall that is thicker, you may need to invest in a Pet Mate wall liner.

Does this need electricity to run?

Yes, the elite selective cat door needs battery power in order to work. The door does have a training mode that turns off the microchip and collar tag sensing so that the door works like a manual cat flap.

What are the other 4-way locking cat flaps options out there?

For microchip pet doors, the Sureflap Dualscan is raccoon-proof and allows you to set access controls for up to 32 separate pets. The Petsafe Indoor Cat Flap is non-electronic and also has a 4-way locking feature.
