Product Description

SureFlap is a battery powered cat flap that uses the ID chip implanted in your cat as an electronic door key. Thus it allows only your cat(s) in and keeps out unwanted visitors. This means your cat doesn’t have to wear a collar and can’t loose it’s door key whilst out and about. Simply press the learn button on the cat flap and your SureFlap remembers the next cat to pass through. Once programmed, SureFlap will only open for your cat and can memorise up to 32 cat’s identities so no problem for those of us living in multi-cat households. SureFlap is compatible with all 9, 10 and 15 digit microchips. SureFlap is battery operated using 4 xAA batteries (not supplied) giving typically a 6+ month battery life. In addition SureFlap has a manual 4 way locking mechanism with rotary lock to allow you to set it for: In Only, Out Only, In & Out or completely locked. SureFlap can be installed into doors, windows (single and double glazed) and through walls. Mounting adaptors and tunnel extensions are available separately. Gauranteed for 2 Years.

Peace of mind in a cat flap
Review Date: July 25, 2009
Reviewer: Twinkle Toes,
When I decided to get a cat flap for my timid cat I did my research and came up with Sure Flap.
It works like a dream – my timid cat enjoys coming and going when he chooses and is much happier and more confident. I have the peace of mind to know he has a safe haven to come back to.

He used it (in non-microchip) mode immediately with no problem, but took about a week to get used to it being switched on as it clicks when it scans the cat and releases the security latch to let the cat flap open. He jumped a few times at first but soon got used to it. He is now much more independent and it’s so sweet the way announces his departures and arrivals with a meow! He loves it.
Cat Liberation!

I bought and installed my Sureflap 3 months ago, having identi-chipped Miso the cat. Because of neighbouring cats, and our irregular hours, a normal catflap has never been an option, so we have been stuck with a litter tray with all the attendant expense and pong. Sureflap has been the perfect answer. It is a well-made product, with a durable look and feel about it. Miso learnt it in less than 30 seconds – despite having not had a flap for several years, and the fact that the Sureflap has a momentary delay in unlocking while the cat is “security checked’. We are liberated from the litter tray, and she is so thrilled to have finally been given “the key to the door” that – at the venerable age of 15 – she has developed a new and extremely endearing trick: performing head-over-heels just outside the door! I can’t guarantee this effect for your cat, but I can whole-heartedly recommend the Sureflap to all cats and owners.
A godsend for cat-heavy areas

We didn’t purchase our SureFlap through Amazon, but rather directly from the main site.
Both our cats were chipped at an early age and have always used a catflap, however we were having frequent problems with neighbourhood tomcats intruding and spraying during the day and night.
Unfortunately one of our cats was not picked up by the chip scanner. We discussed this over email with the MD of sureflap who was incredibly helpful, going so far as to personally visit us to check the fitted catflap. Although he’d brought a replacement catflap with him in case ours was faulty, we discovered that the chip had slipped position in the cat thus meaning that it was not recognised appropriately by the flap.
Sureflap’s MD had brought extra chips with him together with some small containers that would fit on a cat’s collar. We now use one of these for the cat with the non-functioning chip and everything works as hoped for.
We would buy another one of these if required without hesitation. Well worth the money – our cats are much more relaxed as they can see neighbourhood cats trying and failing to get in. A genius product made by a company who actually understand the value of customer service.

We bought our Sureflap about a year ago in response to constant visitors using our normal catflap. I was a bit worried at first because we had a new glass pane fitted for the manual Staywell flap – but the Sureflap also fitted perfectly.
At first we had some small issues which have turned out to be related to the type of Microchip in our cat and metal frame around the glass hole interfering with the signal. But Sureflap have been no end of help, sending us test flaps with increased power, modified tunnels,range testing kits – all sorts to help finally give 100% reliability.
Best catflap on the market

I purchased my sureflap catflap approximately one year ago and I still love it!!

I deliberated between purchasing this or the competitor at the time and am so glad with my decision. The competitor was not only asthetically displeasing, but ran off the mains, so needed to be plugged into a socket, wouldn’t work during a powercut (of which my area suffers from a few) and the sales pitch on the Internet was not only pushy but really weak and really made up my mind for me.

I have three cats in total – two normal size cats (4kg) and one 8kg beast! All of them manage to use the sureflap without any difficulties. I sensibly ensured that all of my cats microchips registered with the unit before fitting it to my door, all of which was really easy to do. That’s it really – it’s been working perfectly ever since and my cats love it! I have changed the batteries once in this time, when the indicator light came on and have not experienced any wear and tear issues – considering that I have three moggies it does get alot of use. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or purchase another.

Now I am just waiting for a catflap to be designed that does not allow my cats to bring in mice!
