The Chickenguard self locking door for chicken coops is definitely a game-changer. This is a unique design so far on the market. A self locking pop hole door which locks securely so that nothing can lift it up. It is fitted as a substitute for your existing pop hole door. A pop hole is another name for the door that the chickens use to enter and leave the coop. The chickenguard self locking door unlocks itself when opening and cleverly shoots out two lugs at the bottom when closed. These lugs are what prevents the door from being nosed up a predator. This door can be used by itself or attached to any automatic door opener. If using without an automatic opener then you simply attach a string to the eye at the top of the door.
