Fitting Suggestions for Automatic Chicken Doors

Mounting Examples for the VSB automatic chicken door opener from AXT

These installation diagrams would also be applicable to other door opener systems such as the ChickenGuard Door openerthat we also supply.

They will also probably work with other system such as Hensafe, Titan door opener or Chuxaway chicken door opener although we haven’t tested all systems.

When fitting the VSB door openers, the cord must be connected to the door in the open position.  When it isn’t possible to connect directly to the door the simplest way is to add extra cord between the cord loop and the door.  When fitting the chicken guard there may be enough cord to not need to do this.
