    An 11" wide, 15" tall, all aluminum construction automatic coop door. It comes fully assembled in an aluminum frame and installation is a snap. This product has the option of manually programming open/close times or operation by a photo sensor (option). The door may be powered by any 12 volt DC power supply, a float charger with a battery (option), or a solar panel with 10 feet of wire and a battery (option). The motor is fully enclosed, so you don't have to worry about dust and grim interfering with its operation.

    "One of the Safest automatic Chicken doors"
    Pros - Opens like a regular door right to left or left to right. Sturdy materials, comes mostly assembled, easy to install. Simple to program.
    Cons - none yet.
    After I lost a chicken to the guillotine style doors that come down, I did some serious research and I believe I found one of the best automatic Chicken doors on the market (Pullet Shut). I love they way it opens and closes, I love the safety feature that will stop if hits chicken and the second chance feature. It was so easy to install and program. Actually you can watch my installation video I did at Discover with Dave YouTube Channel.

    I got the door with the solar panel and the battery. It was nice because the power went out recently, but no worries with the charged battery.

    I also made a short ad promo for door.

    The two guys that started the company seem very nice. Like talking to family.

    "Awesome door even after 5years!!!"
    Pros - This has saved me so much worry!!
    It is still working, and I love it.
    Great company, easy to work with, and if I ever needed another one, I would buy the exact same one!!
    Cons - None
    I love this door. I have the solar powered door without the light sensor.
    It was a basic model they sold years ago, and I believe they still do.
    I bought it about 4 years ago, and have it at our bayhouse(lots of salty air that usually corrodes anything and everything)
    It has been through tropical storms, and even 2 hurricanes, and the thing is still doing great!!
    This door has saved so much worry and heartache.
    The one thing I would suggest to anyone buying this is make sure you reset open/closing times when the time changes. I made that mistake a few years ago, and will never forget again.
    (Lost a couple gals) this was on me alone, nothing to do with the company!
    Anyway, I love this door, and recommend it to all!!

    We are the manufacturers of the Pullet Shut door. I'm not sure that what you describe is the "Pullet Shut" door. Several things you mention simply are not accurate. There is no 'actuator', our motor directly turns the door. If you spent $100, you bought everything that makes it move. There is no 'little daughter' (unless you count a 30-something year old!), and we would never speak that way to someone. Never. We also include written instructions with parts when someone does buy them. And when a customer has a problem, up front we work with them to identify the problem before just selling parts. We've gotten calls before to only find out the person has another door, not ours. If you do have our door, please contact us (phone and email are on our website, chickendoors dot com).

    Wow, I am really surprised to hear anything negative about the pullet-shut door. I have had mine for 4 years and I love mine. I did have to replace the back-up battery this year, but all batteries fail sooner or later. That isn't the companies fault.
    I have two friend with pullet-shut doors too and they both love them.
    I haven't had to contact the company, so can't comment on customer service, sorry you had a bad experience.
    I wouldn't have chickens without a pullet-shut door. I love mine.
    I would buy a new one if this one ever fails and I couldn't fix it. That is how much I love mine.

    Thanks for the review. Its great to hear from someone who has actually tried to use the product for a while. The new out of the box,"it looks great" reviews are worthless.

    NOT good customer service as far as I am concerned and what a snarky response. Your rating and story just cost them my business.

    Good information!

    Yes, we still have and use the door and it's still working. We have only had to do one repair, and that was in early spring of 2014 when the circuit board that controls the doors went out; one of the chips that controls the timing went haywire, and there is no way to repair the chips themselves, so we replaced the control board. It cost $60, they sent us the board very quickly, and we made the swap ourselves, as it was very easy to do. Been running without any further issues ever since and it's active 24/7/365.
