This simple design can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, however it's still far from perfect because it allows other cats or animals a means by which to enter into your home.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This requires that your cat wears a collar that has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. Therefore any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot leave or get into your house. The fact that any other cat in the Stansted Mountfitchet area that's got a similar collar can easily gain access to your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products as they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat. With this, an additional layer of control and security is established to ensure that only your purrfect companion gets access.

The kind of cat flap that is can be operated by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in feline entry security. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one pet it will allow multiple entries. The flap will be unlocked when your cat is in close proximity, only allowing entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.

Being able to lock it in place is important regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. For added security, the majority of cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism nowadays. Which means that the cat flap can permit access into your house only, be fully locked, allow exit only, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This gives complete control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night. Based on yours and your pet's needs, there's even the possibility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the more expensive devices.

Fitting a cat flap on your own can be quite straightforward if you've got a solid wood door, and respectable do-it-yourself skills. On no account should you try and install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. This sort of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented odd job men who'll be ready to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them right away and request that they leave. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulation properties as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.

A professional cat flap installer will measure up the existing double glazing unit and have a glazing firm knock up a new purpose made one. As a part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This might take a week or so to produce, but it's basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have obtained your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to fit your new cat flap.

The models of door with a one piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could decide to install your cat flap into an external wall of your house. Needing much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap install is definitely best left to the pros, if it is to be accomplished successfully. Most wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnel style, however right angular access via a pillar is also an option. A square shaped hole will have to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube.
