    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.

    "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!!

    "Good door great customer service!"
    I want to give a big thumbs up for the pullet-shut chicken door company. I’ve had my door for 4 years and it works great. I had to disconnect it for a bit bc of a neighbors dog. When I plugged it back in I mistakenly connected the cold wire to the hot. Big mistake on my part! When I called pullet-shut and told them what happened they were still willing to honor the warranty and had my information right at their fingertips. No probing questions, no I’m sorry but we can’t, no phone transfers, just friendly, knowledgeable and patient help. They new exactly what to do. They walked me through opening the circuit board and removing it. The best news is that it will cost less than $40 to fix it. I’m tickled pink. I thought I would need new everything but the actual door. They also have new products...I went ahead and bought a photo sensor so I don’t have to program the door when to open and close. Lol I’m not related to them, don’t work there and I received nothing for this review. Just a good door and wonderful customer service.

    5/5,
    "1 year and still awesome!"
    Pros - Opens to the side so less chance for guillotine effect and dirt to muck mechanism
    Wide
    Reopens for late comers
    Solar panel/ac adapter optional
    Door is all one piece, you only have to cut the appropriate size hole to install
    Cons - Its a pain to reset the timer during changing daylight unless you have the optional light sensor
    Needs space to open outward
    Needs space for battery and any attached accessories (solar panel/light sensor)
    After one year of use I still love my Pullet-Shut door. It is difficult to figure out the timer at first, and a pain to reset it during season changes. Other than that, it is a work horse that never lets me down! Consistent, heavy duty performer!

    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.
  6. Ironsights
    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.

    Hey...You can program the door to open at a certain time in the morning and close at whatever time you would like...it can be changed to whatever time you want also....I'm sure the photo cell feature is good also...take care and good luck
