Magnador Cat Door Installation
- Masking tape
- Phillips Screwdriver
- Exterior caulk
- 1/8” and 3/8" drill bits
- Electric Drill
Prior to starting, check the installation location to make sure nothing will obstruct the door when the flap is fully extended.
Step 1: Use the shoulder height of your tallest pet to set the height of the opening of the pet door. Make sure the pet door is installed on a flat surface.
Step 2: Use masking tape to fasten the template to the mounting location (bottom of the cut out should be no more than 3” – 4” from the floor.
Step 3: Mark the screw positions and the four corner marks through the template provided.
Step 4: Use a straightedge to draw a line connecting all four corners. Then take a level to double check that the lines are straight.
Step 5: Drill four, 3/8” holes INSIDE of each corner of the cut-out area. Use a jigsaw to cut on the line to all four corners.
Step 6: Using the 1/8” bit, drill ¾”-deep pilot holes at each location marked from the template. Do not drill completely through the mounting area, as these are only pilot holes.
Step 7: Now install the pet door and lightly tighten the screws for a test fit.
Step 8: Remove the four corner screws from the test fit and take the Magnador Cat Door from the mounting surface. Apply a bead of caulk between the raised guidelines on the back surface of the door.
Step 9: Re-install the Magnador Cat Door by loosely installing the four corner screws. Gently press against the mounting surface, compressing the caulk to provide a tight weather seal.
Step 10: Again, install the pet door and lightly tighten the screws.
Step 11: If there is no rubbing, tighten down the screws evenly.
Can my small dog also use this cat flap?
Most cat doors are too small for dogs to fit through. Some pet owners find that large cat doors made for big cats can fit small dogs, but otherwise, it'll be best to invest in a dog door.
Does this door have a 4-way lock?
No, this lockable cat flap only has 2-way locking mechanism. We do sell 4-way locking cat doors, which includes the Petsafe Indoor Cat Flap in Deluxe, the Sureflap Microchip cat door, and the Cat Mate electronic pet door.
Can I use this as an interior wall entry pet door?
Yes! Because this door cannot withstand extreme weather conditions, it's a great interior door for giving your cat access to a separate room (such as the laundry room) that contains their cat litter box or cat food. The Cathole is another non-electronic cat door that works great with the cat's litter box.
Can this be installed into a screen door or a sliding glass door?
This door is made to be installed into solid exterior doors. For a cat flap pet door that can be installed into either directly into a screen or sliding glass doors or comes as part of a door panel insert, check out Ideal Pet Products cat flap doors.
Can I get this door with a soft flap?
Pet parents should be aware that this door only comes with a rigid flap. We do not recommend making a DIY project out of installing a different brand's flap as you might damage the door frame.
