Your Microchip Petporte smart flap® will only work if your cat has been fitted with a microchip or you have a collar key.
At present, some older and non-standard microchips may not work with this cat flap. You can check to see if your cat’s embedded microchip will work by entering the microchip number in the box below and clicking the “check” button.
You will find your cat’s microchip number on your microchip registration form from your vet.
Please note that chips with 10 digits, lettered characters, and those starting with 977xxxxxxxxxxxx and 98514xxxxxxxxxx are not currently compatible with the cat flap.
Follow the steps below to find the right door for your dog or cat. Have multiple pets who will use the door? Choose a door sized for your largest pet.
Your pet door has two major parts: the frame and the flap. The inner and outer parts of the frame fit together in the cutout to hold the flap in place. The flap is the part that covers the cut-out hole in the door, the part your pet goes through to use the door.
Please note that all measurements are approximate and prone to user error, so don't worry if you measure your door and your measurements aren't exactly the same as the dimensions given online or in your manual. Your door's dimensions will also change over time; doors expand and contract, and flaps may shrink or warp.
Outer Frame: The outer measurements of the door's frame.
Flap Opening: The measurement of the part of the door your pet goes through. This is not the measurement of the flap itself, but the space your pet has to go into. This is measured using the interior door frame.
Flap Size: The overall measurements of the door flap.
Cut-Out Size: The hole you cut in your door to install the door. After installation, you can get this measurement again by taking the pet door out.
You can find the dimensions for your door in your product manual and on product pages for individual doors in our online store.
Always use the Pet Door cutting template included in the package before cutting an opening in your door or wall. Radio Systems Corporation shall not be liable for any personal injuries or property damage as a result of not using the proper Pet Door template when installing a Pet Door.
Replacement flaps can be purchased through our Customer Care Centre. To ensure we send you the proper flap we will need to ask some questions about your door. Please be near the door so that you can respond to these questions and call our Customer Care Centre.
It can be difficult to find a pet door that will match your old one exactly. First, you'll need to measure the cutout hole in your door. Note that this is the cutout in the door, not the pet door frame. Next, pick a door that is closest in measurement.
You might need to cut the hole in your door a little bigger to accommodate a slightly larger new door. To replace it with a slightly smaller door instead, add additional pieces of wood to the inside of the hole.
Contact our Customer Care Center for help with selecting and installing a new door.
To set the timer, you need to set the unlock time and the lock time at the time when you want the door to lock and unlock. For example, if you want the door to unlock at 7:00, program the unlock time when it’s 7:00. If you want the door to lock at 20:00, program the lock time at 20:00.
To set the open/unlock time
To set the close/lock time
Now set the unit into night mode by pressing and releasing the red button. The red light will stay on. The unit will now lock and unlock at the set times of days. Note the following about the timer.
Unfortunately, there are some very clever cats that can get their claws under the door and pull the door towards them and then climb in under the door.
The green lock may be out of place or the spring connecting to the green lock may have been dislodged from the plastic teeth by a cat trying to force his way in. To check the lock and spring:
The red lock should look like this:
The green lock should look like this:
The green lock should not look like this:
If the spring or lock is not out of place, follow these steps to reset the door.
If the cables are all plugged in correctly, there may have been a power surge. To power down and then reset the door:
The door will only run on battery power if it is unplugged.
The battery is meant to be a backup in case there is a power outage. Some functions will not work on battery-only mode, including night mode. In battery-only mode, the door goes to sleep to conserve battery life. It is not constantly scanning for your cat’s microchip, so your cat will need to tip the door to wake up the door and allow it to open.
