I bought and added this door to my eglu cube Mk 2. It was very easy and quick to install. I works beautifully. I could not have a coop without it, as it is peace of mind, for when I am late or forget to close the chicken coop. Thank you.
Fits well and sturdy. Only flaw is if you use extreme weather blanket and light sensor mode you have to just pull blanket over a little so sensor stays exposed. Not really a big deal but something to look at for the future.
This product works well and is need for the automatic door to fit the MK 1 Eglu Cube (has been designed primarily for the MK 2 - after watching the YouTube video it seems easier to fit the automatic door to the MK1 (with this kit) than the MK2 (just our opinion!!). Easily ordered on-line and was delivered quickly.
Works well on our MK 1 Eglu Cube - you need the Conversion Kit for it to fit. The instructions, which come with the door, are reasonable to follow, however, the on-line YouTube video doesn’t show it being fitted to the MK 1 (it says so but it doesn’t). But after watching it through twice I could see how it did fit - so we didn’t have any problems! It works well - it opens and closes when we want it to. It is reasonable value for the cost - but that test will come over time. We feel that we can leave our flock with willing carers (eggs in payment) while we are on holiday and not having them too bothered first thing in the morning and last thing at night. We will possibly think about fitting one to the inner eglu run in the future (saving up the pennies now!!).
I bought this to add to my traditional wooden coop for my free range hens, mainly so that I don't have to worry about being home in time in the evening to close them up (I know for a fact I have foxes!). This works brilliantly, and for the UK in winter the light setting is the best option, but it does take a little bit of fine tuning to make sure you don't lock any chooks out! The first few nights I ended up with 1 or 2 hens still out when the door locked! It has now been a few weeks of use and I have had a 100% success rate. This door is simply the best out there. It’s positive action is so much more reliable and secure than the others that rely on gravity!
I adore the auto door! I have a flock of Lavender Araucanas, my precious bearded ladies. The new door has kept the fox and the neighbours kid out (my cop cam caught him sneaking in to grab their special blue eggs when I had a regular coop door). With all the great new tech out someone should invent an egg alert device so we can know the moment a new egg arrives!
Does the job perfectly and how clever that the screw fits in existing fixing.
Super pleased I finally purchased one of these. Such a relief to know that with the nights getting darker that the gals will be safely shut away when in away from the house. Plus, the lie-ins are fab! It was straightforward to install, took about an hour & have left it on default light setting which has worked a treat. Def recommend *****
Easy to fit to non-Omlet products. Most auto doors work with a vertical door. This wouldn’t work with my duck house. Despite the fact that I had to alter the opening of the wooden house to fit the Omlet door, it was easy to fit. Easy to set up & operate AND easy to operate manually if required. Excellent product. Excellent instructions. More expensive than other models but definitely worth it. Very happy.
