This kit simplifies the installation of a SureFlap Microchip Cat Door in plate glass, tempered glass that was cut-out prior to tempering, or any thin material that cannot be cut with a rectangular hole for mounting the SureFlap directly. For example, a glass shop could replace an existing window with a new glass that had a circular hole cut prior to tempering. The SureFlap is then mounted in this circular hole using the Mounting Adapter. This is feasible with both single pane glass and insulated glass units. Consult your local glass shop for more information.
Note that installation in-screen is not possible due to the exposure of the SureFlap unit to the weather. Haven't had your cat microchipped? You should get it done. If your cat is ever lost and it does happen, any vet that your pet is brought to will scan for a microchip. If a microchip is found, your cat can be brought home safe and sound. If not, the odds are very slim. Incidentally, if your cat was chipped some time ago, it may have been a 'free-floating' one, in which case, the door may not sense it and you may need to get the cat re-chipped. Newer chips have barbs on them and keep in place.
SureFlap has an RFID disc available that may be used while you're waiting for the vet. Just don't use the two, chip and disc, together or you'll confuse the pet door.

The SureFlap Cat Door works with all identification microchips supplied by your vet and SureFlap RFID collar tags.
SureFlap is compatible with the following commonly used microchips in North America:
- All 15 - digit (FDXB)
- All 10 - digit (FDXA) except those with codes starting 000..., 010..., or 020...
- All 9 - digit (Avid Secure/Encrypted Chip)
Check with your vet if you have a question about the type of microchip you are using. The programming process is extremely simple. Your cat walks through, the door senses the microchip and remembers it. You may have up to 32 cats programmed simultaneously.
In addition to this unique microchip sensing design, the SureFlap incorporates the familiar 4-way locking device for even more control over the movements of your cat.
As the SureFlap is battery powered (4 AA batteries last about 6 months depending upon usage), a nearby wall outlet is not required. A low battery indicator lets you know when to change the batteries.
The SureFlap is self-framing from 0" to 2 3/4" which will accommodate very thin material like plate glass to very thick exterior doors.
For Wall Installation just purchase enough SureFlap Tunnel Extensions (each one is good for 2" of wall depth) to get most of the way through the wall. The SureFlap itself will accommodate the last 0"-2 3/4".
Installation in glass requires the use of a SureFlap Mounting Adaptor. The use of a glazier is imperative for 'in glass' installations.
If for some reason, you don't wish to use the electronic control, say during training, you may disable the sensing mechanism and use the SureFlap as a regular manual cat flap.
If you feel that the locking feature should act more quickly, no problem. There is a special high-speed locking mode that you can activate if needed.
And, if you have a really big cat that can't get close enough to trigger the chip reader, there's an extended range option:
1. Remove 1 battery from the SureFlap and leave for 2 minutes to power completely down.
2. Press & Hold the learn button.
3. While continuing to hold down the button, reinsert the battery.
4. Release the learn button.
One last caution If you want to install this cat flap in a metal door, you'll need to build a wooden collar to keep the cat flap separate from the metal. The installation instructions explain how to do that and how wide the collar needs to be.
