The Petflap is fitted with a simple mechanical lock that can be locked open or shut.
When training a pet to use the Petflap lock the flap slightly open giving the animal an understanding of how to open the flap. Once your pet is familiar with going in and out through the flap, return the lock to the open position for normal use, and lock it when preferred.
We’re often asked whether the Petflap has microchip access. We have a microchip version in development.
If you’re looking to put a Petflap through a wall we can offer you a solution. Usually a Petflap with extended trunking has an inset flap at the indoors end, but instead we can provide custom cut plates to fit round a standard top-hung microchip catflap. The advantage of this is that you get the draughtproofing of a Petflap with the access control of a microchip. If you’re interested please get in touch for a quote.
