This Magnetic Dog Door is designed to be installed in glass windows or doors. The opening system will help keep strays from entering your home. A small magnet is attached to your dog's collar, which activates the magnets that operate the opening latch to allow dog entry. Once the dog has entered the system will automatically close the latch, helping to prevent entry by strays.
The magnetic system has a similar action to that of an electromagnetic door, however, does not have the associated problems such as battery failure or electrical failure. No batteries are required, resulting in a lower cost by avoiding inconvenient battery replacement. Your dog will not be locked out or in, due to dead batteries or electrical failure.
The door flap is manufactured from Bayer high impact Polycarbonate. This high impact material is also used for bullet-proof vests and aircraft windows. A four way manual locking system is provided to allow you flexibility with your dog's movements. In-only position will allow your dog entry but prevent your dog from leaving. Out-only position will allow your dog to leave the house but prevent the dog from re-entry. The locked position will prevent the dog from both entry and exit. The In and Out position will allow both entry and exit.
All glass fitting dog doors should be installed by a professional glazier.
