Product Details



The SureFlap Microchip Pet Door for walls is a reliable pet door for cats and small dogs designed to keep unwanted critters and neighboring cats out of your house. It installs in walls 2” ‒ 8” thick and comes with the appropriate amount of wall liners for your wall. The bundle includes the door, frame, and all necessary tunnel extenders needed to frame out the wall. If your wall is over 8”, you can purchase additional SureFlap tunnel extenders. Engineered with RFID technology, this SureFlap pet door is equipped with the fastest chip reader for pet doors on the market. 

 Features:

  • Clear, rigid flap surrounded by fuzzy weather stripping to prevent drafts
  • Installs in walls 2” ‒ 8” thick. If your wall is over 8”, you can purchase additional SureFlap tunnel extenders.
  • Allows any pet to go outside, but only those with a programmed microchip or an RFID collar key to come back in.
  • Programs up to 32 different pets. 
  • Includes 1 RFID collar key in case your pet is not yet chipped. Extra collar keys are available for purchase.
  • Timer control curfew mode lets you program the door to lock and unlock at specific times of the day to keep pets inside. Even if a pet is outside when curfew is on and the door is locked, they can still get in with the microchip sensing but other critters can't.
  • Electronic override lock allows you to set the door to in-only, out-only, locked, or completely unlocked as needed.
  • Powered by four C batteries, which last up to 12 months.
  • When batteries are low, an indicator light flashes every 5 seconds. Replace the batteries when this light is flashing. When the batteries die, the door defaults to the locked position, which could leave pets stuck outside.

Raccoon Mode:

Custom Mode 5 is the raccoon mode, making this door a raccoon-resistant cat door. As soon as the sensors detect an animal's head in the tunnel of the pet door, the door scans to read for a microchip. If the animal is not one whose chip has been programmed to trigger the door, the two locks on the exterior of the door are activated for added security. At this point, the unit will keep scanning for a microchip, and the exterior locks will remain engaged until approximately 10 seconds after the intruder animal has moved away from the door. 

Benefits:

  • Wall liners frame out the interior of your wall to prevent water damage. 
  • Perfect solution for cats who don't like wearing collars.
  • Helps Prevent unwelcome critters from accessing your home.
  • Curfew setting prevents pets from going outside in the night to bark at any critters and eliminates sleep loss and safety concerns.

Installation Instructions

Installing the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door Through a Wall



Tools Required:


Weatherproof Tape


Weatherproof Sealant


Blu Tack


Masonry Drill


Masking Tape


Sharpened Pencil


Spirit Level


Ruler


Manufacturer Recommendations:


For DIY installers, note that power tools may be necessary. Safety equipment (gloves, eye protection, etc.) should be used. Consult a professional when necessary. Before installation, program your pets’ microchips or collar tags with the door, so they can be read reliably.


Step 1: Measure the height of your pet’s stomach from the floor. This indicates the height at which you should install the pet door. When installed, the top of the flap opening should be at least an inch above their back.


Step 2: Select your installation location on the wall for the cat flap. This should be a convenient location for your pet to enter and exit the home.


Step 3: Using your pencil, make a mark on the wall based on the height of your pet’s stomach. Then make a vertical mark for the center of the door. Using Blu Tack, attach the door to the wall. Ensure it is horizontal with a spirit level, then use your pencil to draw a line along the inside of the frame. The line should be where the inside edge of the exterior frame touches the wall.


Step 4: With the appropriate tools, make a hole through the wall as a reference, and repeat step 3 for the outside wall.


Step 5: With the appropriate tools, drill holes along the line of the hole, overlapping the line slightly.


Step 6: Next, cut through the wall and remove any pieces in the way. Consult a professional about tools and safety precautions for this step.


Step 7: Periodically, use one of the tunnel extenders to check your progress.


Step 8: Remove the front frame to reveal the screw holes that will screw into the wall on the interior side.


Step 9: Apply super glue to the four tabs of the tunnel extender. Fit the extenders together. When the glue has dried, place the weatherproof tape to the outside of the tunnel. Do not glue your tunnel to the frame. Just use tape.


Step 10: Place the tunnel and frame into the wall, and Identify the four screw holes, and use a pencil to mark the holes. Then, drill the four screw holes and screw on the frame into the wall.


Step 11: Repeat step 10 for the outside frame screw holes.


Step 12: Once the pet door is securely in the wall, Replace the inside frame cover.


Step 13: Use a weatherproof sealant to seal the gap between the tunnel and the inside frame. Also seal any gaps between the frame and the wall.

Training Sessions


Getting Started: Some pets will take longer than others to acclimate to their new door, so patience is key! Never push or shove your pet through the door (this will only develop negative feelings). Instead, follow these training tips + tricks to help introduce your pet to the door gradually.


Limit training sessions to no more than 10 minutes at a time. Two well spaced out sessions per day should be the maximum.


Hold the flap all the way open for your pet at first; then a little less each subsequent time so your pet learns to push through on their own. Stay consistent with verbal encouragement and treats for best results.


 


Teaching Your Cat to Use Their Door


Step One: Introduce your cat to the door by putting your hand through it so they know how it works. Have them inspect the new cat flap to get used to the look and smell (this is a great time to program your cat’s microchip!).  


Tip: You can wipe your cat’s face or body with a cloth and wipe the door with the same cloth to give it a more familiar scent. 


Step Two: Some cat doors make a slight clicking noise when opening and closing which can scare timid cats. Try manually opening and shutting the flap slowly to familiarize your cat with this noise. 


Step Three: Get your kitty’s favorite treats or toy ready! Start by using a treat to encourage your cat through while holding the flap open for them. Once they are comfortable, start lowering the flap on them as they walk through for their treat.


Tip:Be sure to train your cat using the actual door height - meaning raise the door enough so it resembles how high it will be once installed.


Tip: If you have a door with non-removable magnets, putting some painter’s tape over the magnets can help decrease the magnet attraction strength temporarily for training purposes.


Step Four: Always make sure to reward your cat with praise (and maybe another treat) when they pass through the door.Remember: training can take a considerable amount of time. There is no standard practice as every cat is unique.


 


Quick Tips


- For especially timid cats, temporarily tape it up out of the way while they get used to the idea of walking through the tunnel.



- Clear flaps may confuse pets as they might think the flap is a window. Try putting a piece of masking tape on the clear flap to distinguish it from a window and reinforce to your pet its use as a door.



- Magnetic and weighted flaps have additional weight which may be difficult for your pet to push through. Fix this problem by gently pushing the door to assist your pet as they go through or removing the magnet until your pet gets used to the full weight of the door on their own.



- If you plan on installing more than one pet door, use the same flap if possible for consistency.



- Electronic flaps make a small clicking noise when the flap is activated that may frighten timid pets. The best way to remedy this problem is to positively reinforce this sound in your pet’s mind.


- Praise your pet when they come near the door and hear the activation noise.


- If this does not work, disable the electronics with “training mode” and have your pet use the door manually for a week or so while getting acquainted with the door.


- Consistency is key! Stay consistent both in your training methods and your choice of pet doors. If you have multiple pets the first to learn will often demonstrate  for the others!



- When your first lock the flap shut, introduce your pet slowly rather than letting them “learn the hard way” by running into it.

Warranty

SureFlap™ Cat Door Guarantee

Guarantee: SureFlap™ microchip cat flaps carry a 3-year guarantee from the date of purchase, subject to proof of purchase date. The guarantee is restricted to any fault caused by defective materials, components or manufacture. This guarantee does not apply to products whose defect has been caused by normal wear and tear, misuse, neglect or intentional damage.

In the event of a part failure due to faulty parts or workmanship, the part will be replaced free of charge during the guarantee period only. At the manufacturer's discretion, a replacement product may be provided free of charge in the case of a more serious malfunction. Your statutory rights are not affected.

Disclaimer: The SureFlap™ microchip cat flap incorporates selective entry features which have been designed to minimize the risk of unwanted animals entering your home. However, it is not possible to fully guarantee the exclusion of all other animals in all circumstances.

In the rare event of an unwanted animal gaining access to your home, SureFlap cannot accept liability for any damage or inconvenience which may be incurred.

Warning: The motorized catch and manual lock are provided exclusively to prevent the entry of unwanted animals and is not a security device. SureFlap Ltd cannot accept liability for unintended use and the owner of the product accepts full responsibility for supervising the access in and out of the home that it provides.

In households with children, it is essential to include the cat flap in child-proofing considerations. Misuse of the cat flap by a child may result in the child coming into contact with potential dangers. For this reason, young children should be monitored at all times when in the immediate vicinity of the cat flap.

Caution: Prior to installation, it is the responsibility of the user to consult all building codes which may influence the fitting of the cat flap and assess the suitability of a given installation. The user must also consider potential hazards present inside or outside the cat flap as well as the impact that subsequent modifications to your property may have on the existence and use of your cat flap. It is recommended that these assessments are conducted in consultation with a construction professional.

Do not install SureFlap™ in a fire door as it will render the fire door unfit for purpose.

great idea and seems to be working well!

I like the door.....was easy to program and is working! Our cat is learning to use it and had 1 racoon on the porch so far that did not enter (not sure if it tried to). It has been a project to install as we are not skilled at carpentry. Would be nice to include more detailed description of proper tools needed for cutting through wall materials (drywall, plywood and wood siding). This door is a great solution to give more independence to our indoor/outdoor cat and I am very impressed with 'curfew mode' to insure he stays in at night.

Peace of Mind!

This is the second Sureflap Microchip Pet Door that we've owned. The first was installed 4 years ago & both cats quickly learned how to use it. With time, the magnets which kept the door tightly closed rusted and fell out due to the maritime Pacific Northwest weather. Between that and some needed remodeling there was no question that we'd replace it with the same product. This door works as advertised and successfully kept the neighbor's cat from entering the house despite his repeated efforts by head butting the door (which he eventually stopped after a few months). Highly recommended!

The microchip features of this are super handy for cats who don't like to wear collars. Programming was a bit tricky but once it was programmed, it worked like a charm.

works most of time

The only reason I can't give it a 5 stars is because if one cat, is trying to get inside, and is being closely chased by an enemy cat from the outside, it is possible for the "enemy" cat to get inside even if he or she is not programmed to do so.---This is because it takes about a second for the door to reclose. But it is wonderful for the "enemy" cat (who also belongs to us, but just doesn't "play well with others") to be blocked and outside for most of the time.
