Although this type of cat flap is popular, I rarely install them as most customers want a microchip type. I always recommend a microchip model in any case, as of those that I do install around half of those customers come back to me asking for it to be replaced with a microchip one. The reasons for this are that either a local cat has discovered the new cat flap or suddenly there is a new cat in town. This can lead to food being eaten, your cats being attacked or cats spraying in your home. All of these things have been given as reasons for requesting a replacement. They may be cheap and simple to manage, but they require regular attention if the flap is not to be left permanently open

I like the Cat Mate manual cat flaps. I tend mainly to install the 4 way locking medium cat flap with door liner and to a lesser extent the similar large cat model. When fitting into glass I tend to use a SureFlap as the cost of the glass is the biggest factor, but the manual glass fitting cat flap can be used. The new rotary 4 way locking cat is more straight forward to use than the plastic sliders on the earlier models and it appears well made

Rotary 4 Way Locking Cat Flap (New)

 

 

These are popular manual cat flaps, but I prefer the Cat Mate models. I tend not to keep stock and obtain them to order requiring a day or so lead time. The rubber flaps are useful in certain situations, although not particularly draught proof. A weather resistant model has recently been introduced and starting appear in online stores. I will be looking at them in due course

Aluminium Pet Door (Small Pets)

 

The Pet-Tek uses a Bayer polycarbonate that claims to be 'virtually unbreakable'. They tend to be more expensive than others, but the manual glass fitting models are useful in a range of sizes not found elsewhere. I don't install many of these as they sit between those who want a cheap manual cat flap and customers choosing one of the SureFlap microchip models
