Review – Sure Flap Microchip Pet Door


The SureFlap Microchip Cat Door is suitable for small dogs or cats. What makes SureFlap unique is its ability to read a cat’s existing veterinarian-inserted microchip to allow a cat to enter a home. This is accomplished through SureFlap’s integrated microchip reader, which can recognize the unique identities of up to 32 cats. It will only allow pets with recognized microchips inside the home which keep strays and other critters out!


Another unique feature of SureFlap is it’s the only cat door to use patented low-power radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, which enables it to run exclusively on 4 AA batteries, so there’s no need for electrical wiring access. In fact, SureFlap’s microchip reader only turns on when a cat uses the door, so its batteries generally last for an entire year (low battery light included).

SureFlap is easy to install indoors, windows or walls; glass mounting and wall installation kits are available. SureFlap is also compact and suitable for most cat breeds with its 5.59” wide by 5.39” tall entry portal. A larger model appropriate for large-cat breeds and small dogs will be available in spring 2012.

My Experience with Sure Flap

When I had the opportunity to review Sure Flap, I opted to get a demo unit as we currently don’t have a place in our home where we could install this.

Chuy Chihuahua could fit into the door and he is about 8-9 lbs. So, just like the product promises, you can use Sure Flap for a cat or small dog.


Chuy was a little freaked out by the door and was more interested in trying to tear apart Newton J, the demo cat! LOL Although, after a little bit of time and some treats, he was getting a little more comfortable with it. I think given enough time to train and get used to it, he would have no challenges using the door.

I was surprised at how easy it was in terms of loading the microchip. Once it’s recognized, the cat can pass through the door.


I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a secure pet door.
