    Looking for a timer set pop door opener like so many of you have. Where did you buy it from (links very much appreciated) and how much did it cost?

    Did anyone make their own?

    TIA

    Hi, I made my own using a piece of aluminum for door...a simple track for it to slide in and an add-a-motor (door motor) along with a simple timer to control opening and closing time. google add-a-motor D20 I think my wife paid around 90.00 dollars for it. If ya wanna see my door set up, scroll through the pictures in my page. good luck
