    I fond it odd that there was no video showing the door in operation on the website.

    I agree, would be nice to see it in full operation. You can see and hear it move about 1" in the video that shows the safety feature stopping against an egg. The literature on the site says it moves about 12" in 45-seconds.

    Hey Randy and aart,
    I'll try to get a good video of it going up and down loaded on the website soon.

    That's great Matt! I know that as the designer of this newly manufactured automatic coop door that you have seen the door go up & down thousands of times! But, for us potential customers we can never have enough info., photos, and yes, videos to help us decide whether the product is what we need, or not.[​IMG] I would love to see some 45-second video segments of the door moving up & down using the various switch modes!

    I think your door design using a screw drive is the 'Schizzz'! No way a coon is going to lift the door of your design!

    Unless something I like better comes along in the next few months, I am pretty sure the 'Ladies First Chicken Door' will be on my new coop!

    @Why Did The Chicken Cross
    The installation videos seemed very good, detailed(didn't watch all in entirety) and should be a great asset to customers.
    Probably busy with those and forgot the simple 'watch it go up and down' videos.

    Thanks aart for the feedback.

    I would like to get some more feedback good or bad so that I can make the website and or product better.

    Anyone else have any feedback they would like to give?

    I might do a giveaway contest if that is allowed. I did the contact form but haven't heard anything back yet.

    Do you have an automated door?

    Thanks Randy for your enthusiasm for my product! I'll post the video this weekend. Please let me know if there is anything else you can think of that will be helpful.
