The range of the collar to the door is 12 to 15 Inches

The system usually comes with 2 collar keys (but confirm before you buy)

The door signal wont’ interfere with a dog fence system, or a home security system

The door is pet and child safe – won’t close on and crush a pet or child if they obstruct the door and sit in the opening

The door plugs into a standard household outlet or can be hardwired

How Do You Install This Pet Door?

There’s no substitute for following the manufacturer’s instructions for installing their Pet Door product which should come with the door, or should be found on their website. They may also have YouTube videos to help you.

But generally, for most Pet Doors you need to cut out a section of the door or wall, insert and fix a frame or tunnel extender into the wall or door, and then fix the door onto the frame.

This may involve using a jigsaw or cutting tool, a drill, a screwdriver (can be phillips head or sometimes a non standard screw is included in the kit so check this), and the hardware included in the pet door kit.

Sliding doors and aluminium frame installs are generally easier as there’s usually no cutting, but just rather inserting and sometimes fixing involved.

Some people choose to install themselves, whilst some people choose to get a professional handyperson to do it for them.
