How do I measure my slider?
You would need to measure from the deepest part in the bottom track to the deepest part up inside the top track.
Is this good for moderate climates?
Yes, we recommend this for less extreme weather.
Can I install this myself?
We do have a video under the "Installation Instructions" tab, but it is meant for a more straightforward, easy install.
Can I take this out if I need to?
You can uninstall this pretty easily as long as you haven't drilled it in place.
Is the door lockable?
It does have a small knob that you turn manually. You can also turn it so that it allows your kitty to come in and not go back out, allows them to go out and not in, completely locked, totally open, and one that disables the electronics altogether, making it a regular cat door.
How does the panel lock?
The manufacturer includes a pin lock, but if you do not want to drill holes, you can use a Charley Bar or a broomstick in the track for added security.
Will this be raccoon-proof?
No, this pet door is not raccoon-proof as it is just magnetic. If you need a more raccoon-proof option, check out the SureFlap Dual Scan panel.
Could my small dog use it?
Since doors that are controlled with a magnet are a little more touchy in how they need to be triggered to work properly, we don't recommend this door for dogs.
Do I need batteries for the collar key?
Nope, you only need a 9-volt battery for the pet door.
Does it only come in the white color?
Yes, but you can paint it as long as you get the correct kind and do the proper prep work.

How to Measure Your Sliding Glass Door for a Pet Door
One Year Warranty And Disclaimer
Step 1: Release the automatic height adjustment by turning the knobs located near the top of panel counter-clockwise and pressing. The height adjustment panel should fully extend upward (pull up on panel if necessary).
Step 2: Open the sliding glass/screen door.
Step 3: Insert the E-Cat Panel with the knobs facing inside. Place the top edge into the top track of the sliding glass/screen door. Lift up and swing the lower portion of the panel onto the ridge in the sliding glass door (or screen door).
Step 4: Slide the E-Cat Panel against the door jamb and make sure that the top is fully extended (not tilted to one side) and the bottom of the panel is on the ridge in the bottom track.
Step 5: To lock the E-Cat Panel in place, hand-tighten the knobs by turning clockwise.
Step 6: Once the panel is in pace, use the foam weather stripping to seal down the side of the panel that meets the sliding door.
Step 7: Finally, install the draft stopper strip along the trailing edge of the sliding panel. If your sliding door is on the outer track, install the strip along the front edge of the stationary panel. In both cases make sure that the edge is just barely making contact with the glass.
To permanently install the E-Cat Panel, you may screw through the aluminum fins that protrude on the existing frame of your door. Drill through the fins into the E-Cat Panel. Install two screws in the top and two in the side by the bottom of door. Do not put any screws into the frame by the glass of the E-Cat Panel as breakage may occur.
Installing the Security Lock (Optional)
Step 1: With the sliding door in the closed position, place the lock in the desired location with the bolt in a retracted position, pointed toward the sliding glass door or stationary window rail. Leave approximately â…›” clearance between the bolt tip and the aluminum rail.
Step 2: Holding the lock firmly in place, mark the screw holes and the center of the bolt in the rail of the sliding door.
Step 3: Drill two 5⁄32” holes for mounting screws and a â3/8” hole for the locking bolt. DO NOT drill into the glass.
Step 4: With the sliding door in the closed position, mark the position for the second set of holes. Repeat.
