I'm pretty handy.....and the door (in theory is not difficult to install).....however, its so flimsy and uses cheap screws to bind the door parts. (If you over tighten any one screw.....then it pops apart and you have to start over).

Door performance: the cats embraced it. When they exit quickly...the door will close behind them. If they exit slowly.....it stays paritally open which allows for the cold/hot weather to enter. The directions say it has to be level to close properly. Its level.....and doesnt close properly.

Once I locked the cat out.....only to return home to find he busted through the door and it fell apart into 3 pieces. Had to reinstall.

I regret purchasing this door and wish I had gone with their weather door flap system instead.

Give access to your playful cat by installing the PetSafe Big Cat Door. For pets that weigh up to 25 pounds, the door provides 4 access settings such as open, locked, in only access or out only access.

Worked fine until the plastic door broke...probably 8-9 months, but didn't register it and will never find receipt.. Like everyone else, I can't buy replacement door, so just out of luck I guess.

UPDATE: Petsafe contacted me immediately regarding my experience and offered to make it right. Very impressed with their customer service and have reassessed my opinion. I like a company who stands behind their product.(Originally known as the Staywell 280 "Big Cat" Flap) is a small/medium sized pet door designed for installation in plate glass, tempered glass (with the help of a glazier) or any solid or hollow core door. It would also be appropriate for installation in a Plexiglas or polycarbonate panel substituted for a piece of tempered glass.A 'core cover' piece is included for installation in a hollow core door whether metal, wood or storm door design.PetSafe suggests that this size is appropriate for small to very large cats and dogs to about 22 lbs. As always, we suggest you simulate the opening and test with your pets before ordering.A mechanism is included.Flap is rigid and clear. White frame only.This PetSafe Cat Flap is identical to the discontinued Staywell 270 Slim Profile except the 270 had a frosted, colorless frame.
