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.
I'm really glad I read the reviews on here because people are right, the template is too big for the item. It seems fine when you hold the product up with only the head or tail side on but as soon as you put both sides together, you'll notice the actual size of the hole needs to be smaller to account for the tension on the inner plastic. Anyway, just make sure you check and double check to ensure you're comfortable with the arch you're cutting. Otherwise, they're SUPER cute and in my opinion, well worth the price.
Like other reviews have stated the template is crap and too large for a snug and proper fit. The thin inner board that hides the door cutout is not wide enough to fit into the grooves of either side on a standard 1 1/2" door. That said it looks cool once installed even if it doesn't fit 100%. Confused the cats at first since we had always left the basement door open.
Installed this in a hollow door with very little experience with a jigsaw. As others have said the template hole is too large, but I cut on the inside of the black line and it was more than good enough. Outside of cutting a hole in your door it is very simple to install. I was concerned my big cat wouldn't fit through but my 18lb boy with anxiety issues goes in and out like a flash. Door is pricey but I am pleased with the product and it's working very well. It also looks very cute and all visitors have loved it so far.
So far so good...my fat cat fits through....iI really like that it is flap less...on the downside is it quite pricey for what it is....also... I took the advice of a previous reviewer and used Gorilla Glue....which should be included for what it cost.
Was easy to install with the supplied template and looks fun when installed and painted. Quality of construction and materials will last well but I had to sand most parts prior to installing as there's a lot of edge "fuzz" on the routed edges from their manufacturing process. Worth spending 10min to do this before you install and it will take paint far better.
Love it!! Our cat had no problems adjusting to using it, and now we can finally keep the door to the basement closed and Albert can still get down to his litter box any time he needs it. I do think however, that Albert might prefer the hole to be just a tad higher from him to get under it.
Good, looks good only complaint is that the template is almost too large for the cover. The finish of the "door" does cover this up so aesthetically it looks fine but take the framing away and the template lead to a very irregular sized cut.
