4.0 out of 5 stars Good cat flap - need more screws though., 7 April 2013
Ordered the petmate catflap and got this instead through the post.
Not fussed as it fitted easy enough. Well - about 2 hours work cutting the hole but thats because I didn't have the right tools and had to use a wood drill for a lot of the work.
Tips:
1. If your cutting a hole in a thick door like a front door which is to thick for a jigsaw, (>4cm) save your self time and use a circular saw with a drill and wood bit for edges - although more dangerous to handle than a drill and wood bit, it will make the job easy.

2. Take the door off the hinges so you can access the bottom properly with tools. The lack of access is another reason I couldn't easily use the jigsaw. There are usually nails embedded in the wood constructing the front door - another reason to use a circular saw.

3. Its worth sealing the catflap edges against the weather with a gunk gun and sillicon sealant as well. My door is not a flat surface - it looked to me that rain would easily get down the ridges in my door and rot the wood.

4. You will also likely need another 4 screws for the panel on the other side of the flaphole - which don't come with it!

The only down side to this over the other models I can see is the locking action being limited - but do you really need to lock the cat out only or in only? With this its locked or 2 way. Suits me.

Update: Since I had the cat flap installed, a neighbourhood cat often creeps in for a feed.
