Not only does the Endura Flap boast excellent durability and weather resistance, it also has customizable magnetic pet door strength to fit your pet’s strength and unique pet door needs. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to reduce or increase the magnet strength of your Endura Flap Dog Door.
Here are some reasons for reducing magnet strength:
And some reasons for increasing magnet strength:
The Endura Flap is equipped with strong Endura Flap magnets for maximum weather resistance. However, sometimes the dog flap magnets are so strong that smaller or more timid pets struggle to get the hang of their new door right away. This is why it is helpful to know how to remove magnets from pet door.
You can even decrease magnet strength for a tiny kitten or puppy, then increase it again once they are big and strong enough to push through. In this scenario, removing the side magnets and taping down the floating threshold at the bottom allows your pet to learn how to push through the seal to open the flap.
Note: Make sure to replace the magnet so that it attracts the flap’s magnet! Test it before you return it to the frame.
Removing side magnets is a great option for training young or timid pets. However, if you’re looking for a lasting reduction in magnet strength—for instance, if you have a cat and large dog sharing the door—we recommend removing magnets from them magnet door flap itself.
Note: You can remove all magnets from the bottom of the magnetic dog door flap to decrease resistance, but this will also reduce wind resistance significantly.
Replacing only one of the corner flap magnets reduces the resistance of the flap for small or timid pets while maintaining the flap’s weather resistance. This is a great method for cats using an Endura Flap.
If you find that the magnets in your Endura Flap are too weak for your weather conditions, adding magnets is the perfect fix! Additional Magnet Kits can be purchased separately to increase wind and weather resistance, keep your home insulated year-round.
