Easy to Setup and Use

I got fed up, I was spending loads of money on cat food, only for numerous neighbourhood cats to help themselves (caught on camera). I tried scaring them off with noise and spraying water on them but it didn't help.

I looked at microchip cat feeders, but those were beyond my budget. Then I saw this selective entry 'Sureflap' microchip cat flap and it has solved the problem.

It also makes Mogwai (my cat) feel more secure and relaxed knowing that no other cats can get in.

Caution: Be sure to get a genuine Sureflap one, there are many sellers that use sureflap in the title, but actually sell you a different cat flap. (Check against my pictures)

Fitting in place of an existing cat flap is pretty simple, in most cases only needing a basic screwdriver. Most people will have no problems at all. In my case, the existing hole in the door was just slightly too tight and needed adjustment. I used a small sanding wheel in my electric drill and it was fitted in moments.

To fit where there is no existing hole will require tools, but is still not a major job. Any half competent DIY'er will be able to fit it easily.

Importantly, do not ever file, drill or cut the cat flap's tunnel section to make it fit. The coil that actually detects and reads the microchip is embedded into the tunnel and if damaged will render the cat flap useless.

Lastly, as an electronics engineer, I would recommend using good quality alkaline batteries. They will give you good lifespan and stand less chance of leaking and destroying the electronics inside the Sureflap.

No more party cats

My last cat used to have the occasional party when the local moggie so could just wander through the cat flap. This time when I acquired two cats - I decided as they are chipped to buy a microchip sure flap. I fitted it to the wooden part of the back door using a drill, a jig saw, some sandpaper and a cross head screwdriver. It was pretty easy to do. I also programmed the flap with the cat's chips before I fitted the flap, it was very easy with a few treats at the end of the tunnel and both cats are using it after a few session with treats - and of course - no more parties!Read full review...

Microchip Cat flap

I had this cat flap before, batteries tend to pop out easily but otherwise fairly intuitive. You cannot remove cats once you have added them but with only one cat I doubt this will be an issue for me!
Very easy to fit to my door, fortunately this one is quite thin otherwise you need to purchase the extension tunnel. Great bit of kit without too many extra gadgets.. I don’t need timer features. Less likely to go wrong with simple too.

Good cat flap

First time I've got a microchip flap - thought I would to stop the other cats coming in and scaring mine! Fitted into a composite door, professional fitter had no issues other than it's a bit higher than I've had in previous doors due to the panels on the door. Easy to get flap to recognise the cat's microchips in its 'learning mode' then switch to normal use and only they can go in - any animal can get out (presumably if snuck in when the door is open). One cat is using it OK (only had a few days), the other more reluctant to explore new things, is taking her time. No problems/issues so far but obviously early days. Paid a lot less on ebay than advertised price and is a genuine sureflap - top of the price I would be prepared to pay for a catflap but does what I want. (Apparently flap can recognise up to 32 different microchips).Read full review...

Excellent Product

I had been thinking of buying a microchip cat-flap for several years. Recently a neighbour's cat had been coming in and causing my cat stress as well as pinching it's food & spraying all over the place. This decided me to take the plunge & I'm very glad I did. It was very easy to fit (after a slight easing of the hole) & works perfectly. The cat, suspicious at first took to it very quickly. I was worried at first that it would malfunction & lock the cat out, but no problems so far. Very prompt delivery as well.Read full review...

Works a real treat

Nice to know that we don’t have any unwanted visitors coming into our home & eating our cats food & frightening them!. Just did what it said on the information leaflet & checked to make sure our cats microchip was compatible with this cat flap before we installed it....IT WORKS A TREAT!. Already had a cat flap fitted before so only needed to make a small adjustment to the flap size. 1 week on our new kitten has mastered the art of using this flap, mummy cat on the other hand is just a bit lazy but sure she will figure it out soon!. Very happy we purchased this flap. Highly recommended it.Read full review...

Wish I had brought one years ago!!!

Easy to set up but advise it to be done before you fit the flap😊as you have to hold your cat under sensors until it clicks a few times but great product.only small pain is it takes a few seconds to open so got 2 cats that are taking some getting used to it but they will.😊Would definitely buy again!Read full review...

Absolutely Fabulous

We started getting another cat being cheeky and bashing our old flap when it was locked, this of course upsetting our two but the final straw came when I caught him helping himself to the food one morning....... I wasn't impressed! Since we installed this flap the boys have been much less stressed and I don't worry about someone else coming in and hoovering the food. The tunnel is slightly smaller but the boys soon got used to it. I would definitely recommend this if you get unwanted visitors.Read full review...

Brilliant cat flap

Fantastic cat flap. Really easy to install.im in my fifties so not brilliant with technology but found it so easy to program.trained cat took 15 mins using cat treats dreamiies this was the longest part of the installation but very successful. It's not cheap but it's a quality catflap and worth the money. Really pleased saves you money in the long run in cat food that's eaten by other unwanted visitors.Read full review...

Microchip cat flap

Absolutely brilliant. No other cats can get in even tho they’ve tried. Late at night I set it so my cats can come in but then can’t get out til I open it in the morning. Fitting was easy. Highly recommendedRead full review...
