SureFlap sent us a SureFlap with a delayed clicking mechanism as our cat is so nervous and jumpy. We mounted the SureFlap into a plastic storage bin, put a cloth placemat in the bin, and Bubbles is now in and out of the bin all night long, eating whenever she desires. We are all very, very happy about this. Well, all happy except her brother. By the way, the Duracell batteries have been fine for a month now even though she is constantly in and out of the SureFlap.
for users with a timid cat it took us a few weeks of training her with kitty treats at the door and opening it for her and leading her to her wet food. Then one day she just used it on her own. The boy cat is normally very resourceful about stealing her food and has yet to succeed.
Thanks, SureFlap, for fantastic service and product.
I am using this product in the same way as another reviewer- I attached it to a large plastic storage box to allow my kidney failure cat a private "room" to eat her special prescription food without my other cat stealing it all. We have the flap programmed to only recognize the microchip of Kidney Cat, and Other Cat has not been able to go inside the box. It does not unlock for Other Cat, and (most impressively) she cannot pry open the little door with her paws/claws. Huge win!
I will say that depending on your cat, be prepared with your patience and willingness to spend a LOT of training time. Both of my cats have been indoors their entire lives (9 years) and I guess they do not understand doors. Kidney Cat still does not really understand the concept that she can push open the door by herself, without human help. We've taken many baby steps to train her and she has made great progress, but we are still not there yet after 1 month of consistent every day use for all of her feedings. If you want to know what our training process has been, I will detail it below. Otherwise, my review ends here that this product is really great and I would buy it again if I needed another microchip reading door.
1. Place food bowl next to, but outside of, the storage box.
2. Gradually move food closer to box, until she is eating inside the box with lid off.
3. Cut hole where cat flap will go. Allow cat to walk through hole to eat from food bowl. No flap yet.
4. Install flap, tape open door so cat can walk through opening without needing to figure out the door yet.
5. Gradually lower the height of the flap so cat gets used to the idea of the flap plastic touching her head/back as she passes through.
We thought out cat would figure it out at this stage, but she did not. So training continues!...
6. Attach string to both sides of cat flap door. Tape the microchip/locking mechanism down so you will be able to pull open the door with those pieces of string ahead of your cat as she tries to enter. Maybe this helps cats with more brain cells than mine to disassociate the human from the door opening/closing. Since the magnetic closure is pretty strong, this step helped give my cat a little extra help with pushing open the door.
7. Remove tape on the locking mechanism so cat will start to learn that she needs to push the door more quickly once she has put her head inside. Because she has been putting her head in there and day dreaming too long about her food that is mere inches away but since she took forever, the flap locked itself again.
8. Give cat a thousand yard stare as she begs and cries for food, even though her food bowl is full inside her bowl and all she needs to do is push open a flap to get it.
9. Put cat in front of flap and give a little nudge to her front paws to urge her to use paws to open the door if she does not prefer to headbutt the door.
10. Write a review on Amazon and hope that another user will have some more training ideas to get this concept to stick with your cat!
Hopeful that she will learn someday but in the meantime at least it keeps her prescription food safe from my other hungry cat. :)

Because for you, you will be awoken at hourly intervals to your cat trying to head-butt his way through the inoperable plastic gateway which serves not as a gateway, but a barrier to your feline overlord entering his dominion. You may as well have saved your £60 and endured the incessant miaows at the window, or the desperate squeak of paws at the glass, wax-on wax-off fashion, attracting your attention to his plight of being outside.
"You've just been unlucky enough to receive a faulty product", I hear you say. And yes, that was my initial reaction too. On contacting the customer service desk, you will be politely provided with an assortment of top tips, to get the best out of your 'SureFlap Cat Flap with Microchip Identification, White, 21 x 21 cm’.
Adjust the screws, for fixing them too tight can be the cause of this problem. Still seeing no improvement? Try cleaning the battery contacts - poor connections can impede operation.
(On an item less than nine months old, this all seems unlikely, but you don’t want to cause undue hassle. You willingly oblige.)
When this fails, you are asked what batteries you are using, because of course, you were informed that only premium batteries work with their product... No recollection of this requirement on purchase? No, me neither. But this is an irrelevance, as everyone knows the old adage, 'you buy it cheap, you buy it twice'. (SureFlap being the exception).
You cat will suffer significant distress. Imagine the thoughts of your disapproving companion, when he fears he’s been locked out for good. For you, there will be months of domestic disharmony, as you succumb to middle of the night arguments as to whose turn it is to allow the blighter in, repeating the whole process an hour later, when it's clear he returned solely to stock up on Whisk-as Tasty Pockets, before making the arduous journey back to the neighbour's garden to evacuate his bowels.
My main criticism of the 'SureFlap Cat Flap with Microchip Identification, White, 21 x 21 cm' is that it fails in its primary function of being a cat flap - allowing a cat in and out of your home, without involving you in the process.
**** UPDATE: A replacement was finally offered which has been working without issue for almost 2 months now. ****
Lots of review reading (mainly on here against other products) later and this was the choice - and I do not regret it.
The boys didn't take long to get the hang of it - one is one of those curious nosy bulshy types I mentioned above - so much so that he does this hilarious Superman dive through it even time he goes out. Our other one is a little neurotic (the wife says sensible, but meh) and much more nervous reserved and careful so it took him a bit longer. The manual says tempt with ham/meat/etc - heck just rattle the cat treats on the other side of the door with it propped slightly open, he'll soon get the jist. Mr Neurotic our end had a slow start but realised he had to man up if he didn't want to miss out on the adventure outside.
Folks do say some folks get a bit scared by the clicking. Again if your cat is a bit sensitive this maybe the case at first but persevere. They do realise in the end that actually to come in that the click is a good thing and means they can come in.
I was a bit worried about the draft initally, and whilst there is a very small one despite the furry flap edges in the frame, it's not that bad. That said my flap is installed 90 degrees from the direction of wind - the wind cannot hit it straight on and it does look like you can kinda see between the flap edge and furry insulation and the outside world, so this might be a problem for others.
The other thing to note (that doesn't bother us due to the location) is it looks OK and not too bulky from the inside (which is the side you can see in the main picture here on Amazon), but some my find it pig ugly on the outside due to the surround over the sensors - it does stick out a good couple of inches. This is a practical element for the cat flap, but yeah, if the cat flap is in a prominent location and you want a discreet cat flap, again please consider carefully.
So far in the past 2.5 months the sensors haven't become that blocked. Unlike the state of the rest of the cat flap, with its mud and leaves dragged in by the monsters, so whilst I've had to clean the cat flap, the sensors haven't been affected. Range on the sensors is good and we've had no problems so far. I leave the cat flap set so that they can ALWAYS get in (even when locked in, just in case they do one day break out when they shouldn't) and we've had some noses up against the flap trying to get in, but as expected, no unwanted visitors. The only way such an unwanted visitor can get in, is if (s)he tailgates your own cat in, and that isn't going to happen unless they're friends and your cat is trying to have an unauthorised party whilst you're out (who needs teenagers?)
Lastly, our cats are not allowed out yet after dark. We're both long day workers spread over the 7 days, so some days neither one of us in until a few hours after sunset. We get some help from the neighbours and family if we know we're going to be late (don't worry, they're not neglected when we're gone, they get plenty of visitors and love!), however I do wonder if I should've looked for a chip cat flap with timer. That's not a limitation of this cat flap, this does more than I expected better tahn I expected - but if you are reading this, do consider when your cat(s) is allowed out, and if you're around to lock 'em in.
For what I wanted tho, great cat flap and so far so good. If we do have a disaster I'll update this, but I don't think I'll need to. Anyway, too much chat, hope this helps folks, I'll shut up now.
Die Installation ist genau die Gleiche wie bei anderen Katzenklappen der günstigeren Kategorie auch. Ich hatte sie seit 4 Jahren im Glas der Terrassentür und nun im Mauerwerk. Um es kurz zu fassen, führe ich Vor und Nachteile auf auf :-)
- NUR meine Katzen kommen noch ins Haus
- Klappe ist stabil
- Der Service von SureFlap ist der OBERHAMMER. Jegliche Ersatzteile bekommt man auf Anfrage kostenlos zugeschickt. Bei mir war es bis jetzt der Knopf und eine neue "Tür".
- Registrierung der Katze völlig einfach
- Batterien halten ewig. ( In 4 Jahren 2x gewechselt und das erst wieder vor kurzem! Das bei 4 Katzen die ständig ein und aus gehen)
- Wenn die Batterie schwach wird, erscheint die Anzeige rechtzeitig.
- Die Katze muss kein Halsband tragen, weil es tadellos über den sowieso implantierten Chip funktioniert.
- Mehr Katzen als je ein Mensch hat, sind registrierbar. Also ewig nutzbar!
- In 4 Jahren keinerlei Ausfälle
- Mechanismus benötigt 2 Sekunden. 2 Sekunden können lang sein, wenn die Katze von einer anderen angegriffen wird.
- Das Klicken des "Riegels" ist für die Katze anfangs laut und ggf. beängstigend. Meine brauchten lange um sich daran zu gewöhnen
- Die Tunnelverlängerungen sind überteuert und das System ein absoluter Witz! Das könnte man besser lösen!!!
- Nicht für Großkatzen geeignet. Mein größter Kater wiegt 4,5 kg. Die Aussage das nur Katzen bis 3,5 kg durchpassen ist Quatsch. Selbst ein 5-6 kg Kater passt da ggf. durch ohne Probleme. Ein ausgewachsener Maine Coon aber nicht! Katzen sind da wie "Mäuschen" ;-)
Es gibt kein vergleichbares Produkt und der Service von SureFlap ist Gold wert! So einen Service hab ich noch von keiner Firma erlebt.
Wer also eine Klappe haben will durch die nur die eigenen Katzen kommen, sollte auf SureFlap zurück greifen.
Am liebsten würde ich 5 Sterne vergeben, aber der Einbau in einer Wand mit den angebotenen (und überteuerten) Tunnelverlängerungen die man per Sekundenkleber + Klebeband montieren muss ist wirklich daneben für ein sonst so hochwertiges Produkt!
I did the same cleaning and checks on the old flap and now that works too! It seems these things get unhappy when they are dirty. Places to pay particular attention to are the inside of the tunnel especially opposite the sensors, the sensors themselves and the top draught excluder strip on the door which, as I found, can hold enough hair to stop the sensors from working correctly. It looked ok but once I got in there with an old toothbrush, there was hair there which seems to have been what caused the problem.
This is a good product but it does need removing from the door and cleaning thoroughly every so often to keep it working reliably.
Suggestions for improvement (just in case the designers read this) would be a smoother interior to the tunnel without so many contours. That would make it easier to clean. The reliability issues might be improved by substituting the velour draught excluding strip at the top of the door with a silicone or butyl alternative (like a tiny windscreen wiper blade) which would still keep the draught out but wouldn't hold cat hair so easily to obstruct the sensors. Our cat has long hair and I found a surprising amount of it matted into the strip.
