    Has anyone installed this in their coop? I just got mine in the mail but haven't installed it yet. Just wondering if anyone has any tips or pointers before I get started. I have a digital timer that I will plug it into.

    thanks

    I have an automatic door that opens and closes with the daylight and I love it because I like to sleep late!![​IMG]

    I love my automatic door, too. It was not a discount model at all, but worth every penny. I just wish I didn't have to get up before the danged chickens this time of year to go to work! NOT FAIR!

    Quote:Yep, that's where we got ours! LOOOOVE IT. Had to email them to make sure they had it in stock. No phone number as I recall. But good peeps.

    My hubby installed it in NO TIME flat. I was really impressed. We had a door already (a piece of scrap metal). He screwed in the side rails and hooked it up. Works like a charm. Never had an issue with it. We got a timer at Lowes. You can also hook it up to a battery. Check the manual.

    I highly recommend the motor and the store.
