To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
don't listen to the instruction and don't cut on the line because the whole will be too big to the point that the tiny double sided tapes that they have on them will not have enough surface to adhere to
While this door does work and look as it appears, my opinion is that it is overpriced. It is literally just a couple pieces of plastic.
It is relatively quick and easy to install. Might be a tad small for an average sized cat. But it works.
The method of adhesion involves 3M sticky strips. These are convienent, but they don’t allow the plastic to sit perfectly flush against the wood. So there is a albeit small but noticeable gap between the wood and plastic.
It's a whole in the door. We wanted one without the flap so our cats didn't get a tail stuck. This one uses a semi circular hole which is easier to cut than the cat shaped hole of some others. The adhesive is garbage, use some other type. The plastic ring that goes between the pieces is tricky to get placed right and is under tension so it wants to expand. Our small cats have to belly crawl through this regular size one.
DO NOT CUT YOUR DOOR USING THE TEMPLATE! Luckily I noticed the template looked too wide before sawing into my door. I believe the template must have been drawn before installation and without considering how it's pulled together (more narrowly) once in place. With a lot more work than anticipated and needing my son to help me maneuver it, we got it in place a few days ago, and so far it is working well.
This is a great idea and the materials are nice. The seller was professional. But the connecting strip WILL NOT stay in the groove and the adhesive won't hold it to the door well enough to keep it in long enough to dry with paint. Now I have a painted door and kitty pass that are dried in a wonky position that I can't fix without ripping it apart and getting creative with construction adhesive or something. But I'm stuck with the hole I cut in my door so I've got to do something.
Looks great, but the design is really poor...... the inside and outside trim sandwich an inner liner that isn't actually attached to either one, it just fits in a groove on the underside of the two trim pieces. So, every time my 4-legged fatty brushes against the trim the trim pops loose ( it's only held in place with double sided tape) and you can't just easily push it back on because the liner piece doesn't line up without some coercion.
So, it's poorly designed and a pain to fix when it pops loose...... I need to pull the door off again and either add some decent adhesive, or maybe just glue that liner piece in place.
It’s very cute but that’s the end of the positive review. It came with essentially double sided tape which was insufficient to hold it to itself and thus the door. It comes apart into three pieces so you essentially need to glue the pieces together or screw it into the door. If you don’t then it falls apart and scares the cat.
