This simple model can be slightly improved upon with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, however it is still a long way from being ideal since it enables other creatures or cats a way to enter into your home.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will not be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your house, thus preventing some unwelcome visitors. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar might be able to access your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap.

Whichever cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in place. For extra security, the majority of cat flaps have a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that it has the capability to permit only exit from your home, permit only entry into your house, be locked fully, or be put in two way entry and exit mode.

Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be really simple if you have a solid wood door, and reasonable DIY skills. However, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt it yourself. These types of fittings require a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap fitter or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. A new cat flap can't be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, together with its thermal attributes. In fact, it renders your glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

A reliable St Blazey cat flap fitter will meticulously take the precise measurements of your existing unit and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. This new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap can be installed. This might take two weeks or so to produce, but it's really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new pane of glass shows up, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. The installing of your cat flap can then be undertaken.
