3.0 out of 5 stars Does not require "key" going IN & OUT, April 30, 2006
I just returned the one I purchased 3 weeks ago. The door works fine except if you have racoons, skunk or other intelligent creatures that want your pets food. The problem is your pet only needs a key to come IN but not go out--OUT is completely open. Racoons are smart enough to pull open the door from the outside since it is only locked swinging in. Alternatively, you could bend down and lock the door every night once your cat is inside but that defeats one of the main reasons for buying these doors. Therefore pay attention to what the mfg. says. This one said:
"4 settings: 2-way, entry only, exit only and locked "
Their concept of 2-way is key required to come in but no key required going out. I want one that requires a key in both directions so the other animals can't get in at all.

Did you ever find one, and if so...can you direct me.
Thanks

I don't know if you have found one yet, but I bought the Ideal "E-Cat Door" and it is awesome! They don't need the key to go out, But the door does not swing; therefore nothing can grab it from the outside. I had problems with raccoons and other cats coming in, but this door has worked like a charm. I have had it for about 2 years now. It doesn't make any loud noise and it's relatively inexpensive. You can get them at Home Depot and Amazon, but Amazon says it is out of stock at the moment. Hope this helps.

Is it still working good for you? Does it make noisy clicks on opening/closing?

There are ones that key off your cat's implanted chip. Only she will get in or out.
