This standard design is still a long way from being perfect since it allows other animals or cats a way to enter into your home, nevertheless it can be to some degree improved on with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. Subsequently, any animal that does not have a special collar cannot get into or leave your house. Once again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, given that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar may be able to access your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.

The next step-up in feline access security is to choose a model of cat flap which recognises your pet's micro-chip. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one cat it will accept multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.

Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazed window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them right away and show them the gate.

Once you've acquired your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. It will now be possible to install your new cat flap.
