This type of cat flap is simple to manage with greater functionality over the manual type and avoids the issues relating to magnetic and infra-red types due to lost collar attachments. The most popular microchip cat flaps are made by SureFlap. There are cheaper microchip cat flaps entering the market, although their long term reliability has yet to be seen

Preferred Models

I am a recommended fitter on the SureFlap website and virtually all of the microchip cat flaps that I install are made by SureFlap. The reason for this is that they are reasonably priced, nicely finished, have a first class customer support and most importantly are reliable. I test all of the cat flaps before installation and occasionally find a faulty one, but once installed they have been proven to function reliably in the long term

I can install SureFlaps in doors, in glass and in walls. For cat flaps in walls I can use the standard tunnel extenders, but prefer a system using a plastic tube that was developed in conjunction with Philip Foulger of Four Paws Doors. Examples of the finish that is achieved using this system can be seen on my gallery page. The larger pet door can only be installed using the appropriate tunnel extenders
