It’s empty in here!
Problem (2) one of the red buttons soon worked loose and slides across to the locked position too easily now - this causing a problem. (3) the tabs become full of mud and need frequent cleaning with an old toothbrush. Will be looking at other brands when replacement is needed.
I have four cats and a young small dog who bursts in and out - I'm surprised the door has not broken from it's hinges yet - thankfully it hasn't. I have the problems others have mentioned (1) when it is very cold the condensation on the plastic door settles on the brushes at the bottom making the flap unusable. I have had to resort to using a hairdryer to defrost and kitchen paper to dry off before now. Cont.................
Easy to fit and reasonable quality but, bizarrely, the locking tabs can only be operated from outside.
I am replacing this after about 2 years but as I have a dog intent on destroying every cat flap she meets this is something of a record. I have known them go in a week.
THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT WHICH I USE FOR MY TWO SMALL DOGS, AS IT WAS ALREADY FITTED INTO THE UPVC BACK DOOR. THE ORIGINAL ONE LASTED ABOUT THREE YEARS BUT BECAUSE MY DOGS CHASE EACH OTHER IN AND OUT TO THE GARDEN, I RECENTLY HAD TO REPLACE IT AS THE DOOR FLAP FINALLY GAVE OUT. BUT I AM HAPPY TO ORDER ANOTHER ONE TO KEEP AS A SPARE, JUST IN CASE!
Quick and easy to install, the materials are high quality and fit perfectly. The cats love to burst through the flap at high speed. It's still going strong after a year and a half, but I'd definitely buy it again if I needed to.
Our 11kg Maine Coon fits perfectly through this flap. The flap was also accepted straight away by both cats.
Our cat is a bit of a porker, but with this flap it looks like he's been on a diet, as he can get through it without any problems. I'll definitely be fitting more of these in my other doors.
I've had this flap since 2004, and all the cats we've had since have loved it. However, I now need a new flap, as my cats have ripped the brushes off the edges, and this part can't be bought again separately.
After much hesitation I bought 2 cat flaps for my 3 Maine Coons and 5 other assorted cats. Put one into a concrete wall with a bespoke tunnel and the other into a kitchen press as the exit. Sturdy and neat. Of course the coonies have worked out how to open the flap from the outside, but they did the same with the last flap too. Anyway am very pleased with the product.
We just got our first cat and now our first cat flap. It's great for the price, easy to put together and works really well.
A good strong main contruction which was an important consideration for our bengals. Product is only let down by the locking tabs at the bottom which can be pulled off. Once these tabs have been removed once they become weak and repeatedly come off which allows the cats to hide them !
