    it is possible to do, however what they do is measure the glass, replace that unit and install new glass with cat flap in x

    i've had it done and am about to have it done again in my new house in the conservatory glass door x
    it's a straight forward swap over, they leave you with the glass just in case you ever want to change back and it's an easy option for people who don't have back doors to easily put one in x

    how bigs the glass you're having it in? is it side window glass (as in on conservatory like doors) or large door glass?
    before i had it in the strips of glass next to the double patio doors in my old house x if i remember correctly it was 100-150 at most (due to moving and unpacking i have no idea where the reciept is at present)
    but i'm about to have it actually in large conservatory glass door so i'll get quote and let you know anyway x

    Very interested in this discussion of cat flaps in glass doors as I need one. However I have been quoted £375 !!! It's just a single double glazed door. Is the company you use nation wide as I am in South East london.

    Yeah you can, I have seen them and they look good.
    A double glazing company will fit them, but they need to come out to assess your glass.
