The ChickSafe Eco Automatic Chicken Coop Door Opener and Door Kit is a tough and reliable system for automatically opening your coop door in the morning and closing it in the evening as light levels fall, keeping your birds safe and giving you peace of mind. Complete with space-saving 2-stage sliding door kit with long-lasting uPVC runners and fully exterior grade weatherproofed aluminum door.

About the Door Opener:

Running on only 4 x AA batteries (included), this Eco hen house door opener is easy to fit to any chicken coop with a vertical sliding (or hinged) door. The all-in-one design makes setting up a breeze - no messy wiring or limited switches to attach to your coop. Simply secure the control box to the front of your coop with the two screws provided, tie the lifting cord to your existing door, and you’re away. No manual calibration is necessary; the ChickSafe Eco automatically adjusts to your hen house door height.

The ChickSafe Eco features a novel mechanism (patent pending) with only one moving part and no mechanical switches for ultimate reliability. Weatherproof and made from UV-resistant materials it is designed to work in extreme conditions and can lower and raise a door weighing up to 8 Lbs. It features an 'auto-stop' if a chicken is obstructing the door.

Since the ChickSafe works by detecting light levels and looks for slow changes in light they aren't affected by car headlights at night. For your convenience, the sensitivity of the falling light level is adjustable, and an indicator shows that the door is open, or closed, if the batteries are low or if there's a fault. The battery level is also shown on the digital display.

About the Door Kit

The space-saving coop door and runner kit included is a great solution for those with limited height who are not able to use their existing coop door or do not yet have a door. Suitable for nearly all coops, it is easy to fit with the six screws and will get you set up in no time. For long life, the two runners are made of uPVC, and the door of fully exterior grade weatherproofed aluminum for excellent corrosion resistance. Strong yet light, this kit is an ideal replacement for chicken coops with horizontal sliding doors or chicken coops with heavy doors.

The 2 door panels each measure 11.8 inches wide x 7.3 inches tall for a maximum pophole size 11 inches wide x 13 inches high. The two runners measure 22 inches in height.
