More cat owners than ever before are installing cat doors for the convenience and freedom they provide. A common use lately is between rooms inside the home to provide access to food or a cat's favorite private place.
Here's how the manual 4-way locking mechanism works:
Training your cat to use your Cat Door: Most cats will learn to use the pet door quickly. However, there are a few which may be a little anxious at first. Be patient with your cat. Don't force him through the flap or he may become frightened. Once you have installed your cat door leave it propped open for some time. Let your cat become familiar with it and go in and out freely. Establish a motive, such as a food reward, for your cat to use the door. First, feed your pet near the door, inside and then outside. Do not to use the lock on your pet door until your cat is thoroughly familiar with using the door.
Instructions for installing the Large cat Door:
Measuring and marking:
For wooden doors, panels and screens:
For panels less than 7/8" (22mm) thick: remove interior frame and drill screw clearance holes in panel to approximately 1/4" (6mm) diameter. Using the appropriate screws and working from the inside of the house, tighten the interior frame to the exterior frame. Use the screws as follows:
For panels thicker than 7/8" (22mm), do not drill screw clearance holes. Instead, first screw interior frame to inside of panel with short (1/2" (13mm) screws. Drill out the 4 screw holes in the exterior frame to allow close clearance on screw. (Recommended drill bit 3/16" (4.5mm) diameter.) Fix exterior frame to exterior of door using 3/4" (19mm) screws. When installation is complete cover screw heads with caps supplied.
Walls: After making a hole in your wall, line with 3/4" (19mm) plywood or similar material. This gives a heat tunnel to the installation and readily accepts the sizing screws. After construction of tunnel, proceed to step 4 above.
Glass: It is recommended that you ask a glazier to cut a hole of 8-3/4" (223mm) diameter in the position required, and then install the cat flap as detailed at instruction 3 and 4 above.
Note: Not for double-glazed, toughened or tempered glass applications. Tempered glass usually has an indicia mark in one corner. If you see this mark, it is tempered glass. Homes built after 1985 are more likely to have tempered glass. Dual-pane, insulated glass units are almost certainly tempered and should not be cut into. The best way to put a pet door in tempered, double-glazed, or toughened glass is to have a new piece of glass made for you by a local glass shop with a hole pre-cut in the glass.
|Q.||How high up on my door should I install this pet door?|
|A.||Install door so that the bottom of the door is at the same height as the bottom of your pet's abdomen. To best determine the height measure from your pet's stomach to the floor when he or she is standing normally.
|Q.||Can this pet door be installed in a glass panel?|
|A.||Yes, the Large Cat Door can be placed in a glass panel. Since cutting glass can be tricky we recommend that you contact a local glazier (glass cutter) and have them do it for you. If your glass is a toughened glass, it cannot be cut, so you must replace the glass panel with a regular glass panel or a clear heavy plastic panel if you wish to install it at that spot.
|Q.||What is a four-way locking system?|
|A.||The four-way locking system means that there are four different positions to have the door in: fully opened (pet can go out & come in), fully closed (locked), in only (pet can only come in from the outside), and out only (pet can only go out from the inside). Having all of these different choices means you can better control your pet.
|Q.||Which side of the pet door should be on the interior of the house?|
|A.||You should install the Large Cat Door so that the red and green locking tabs are on the interior of your house for ease in lock adjustment.
