The door is adorable and easy to install. However, despite my asking this question before purchasing (and getting an "it shouldn't" response), reading all reviews, and measuring the dog, my 26-pound Beagle easily fits right through it! This totally defeats the purpose for the purchase - to keep 2 dogs away from the new kitten's food and litter box. We will have to find a way to partially block the door, which will ruin the look of it, but we have no choice as there is now a hole in the door. The door is too unnecessarily big for a cat.
After the three hundred and thirty third toy was thrown into the kitty litter box I needed a better solution to keep the cat happy and the kid away from her litter box. I have a fancy ModKat litter box that just stood in the hall since it doesn’t look like a litter box but since it has a top entry it was a magnet for baby to throw things into. This door cut out was a stroke of genius as it provides very cheap and effective solution to my problem.
Installation is pretty simple and easy. Just take a closet door off, trace the provided outline and cut. When tracing the paper template outline that you will cut, stay true to the outline. The actual front/back piece is wide enough to forgive your cut lines but you don't want to take too much advantage of that.
As soon as my husband put the door back on the frame the cat started going back and forth from the hall to the closet and from closet to the hall. I added a motion sensor light in the closet and problem solved! There are no more toys in the litter box - the baby still shares plenty of toys with the cat through the hole but at least now it’s a bit easier to clean them and he can’t touch the litter or her waste. Perfect !
I installed this myself and it couldn't have been easier. This was exactly what I needed for my basement door (interior) to allow access for my cats to get to their litter box. The cats were curious and began using it immediately. This eliminated the need for me to keep my basement door cracked (or it accidentally closing) so my cats can go down to use their litter boxes.
It comes with screws and a template. You can get the door cut at Lowe’s or Home Depot so you don’t have to saw it by hand, but if you want to it’s possible. The only issue I had with this product is if you don’t cut it EXACTLY to the cut out then the screws won’t go on right... therefore neither will the product itself.
Love this! Super cute and pretty easy to install. The only reason why I gave it a 4 is the shape is semi-frusterating to cut out. I have a dremel and electric hand saw and I cursed a few times. Other than that, its great! Ibhave a 14lbs cat and was nervous he woudlnt fit. He does duck down to get through, but he fots fine.
Super easy to install!!! I have a router saw, keep that in mind without one it would have been much more difficult, but that's the same for all these types of doors.
First off the screws were self drilling! Cut down a lot of time! The covers for three screws are rubber and fit extremely well!!!
I placed the template, drew the lines on the door and cut. One tip put the front and back on the door before screwing in. The back and front overlap if the front is placed and screwed in the back might not fit. Super easy to do. I did it on my own, just fitted the 2 pieces together, screwed in one of the top screws, separated the pieces, finished with the othe 3 screws. I added the rubber covers. Next flipped the door and fitted the back piece onto the now secured front piece. 4 screws and rubber overs later all done. Dusted off the saw dust. Placed back on the closet door, put in the pins. Done. 30 min project!!!
Fyi, this is a closet door and much smaller than a regular sized door. A chihuahua or other toy sized dog could fit though, but medium dogs would struggle. Perfect size for small or husky kitties!
Again review asked about "sheerness"? To me that would mean see through or thin material. This is well made and thick as it should be!
