The Bow Wow Barrier is an easy-to-use, retractable barrier for use on all exterior doors. This pet barrier is designed to keep dogs and cats from running out when the front, back, or any exterior door is opened.

As you open your door, the Bow Wow Barrier instantly creates a safety barrier across the opening. As you close the door, the Bow Wow Barrier automatically rewinds back into a small roll - 100% hands free!

  The perfect solution
Once you start using a Bow Wow Barrier you�ll wonder how you ever got along without one. Just think about how often you open your door and how every time you need to hold back your pets. They usually sneak past you and jump up on whoever�s at the door. You apologize to the person at the door, you scold your pets, and try to talk while bending down holding onto a collar or two. Not exactly an ideal situation.

The Bow Wow Barrier is the perfect solution to keep you, your visitor, and your pets happy.

How does the Bow Wow Barrier work?
After you secure the barrier into the brackets on your wall or door jamb and latch the handle into the brackets on the door, the mesh will automatically open as the door is opened. The fabric then becomes a safety barrier across the opening and unwinds or winds automatically as the door opens or closes.

If you want to walk through the door, simply unlatch the handle from the brackets on the door and guide the mesh back as it automatically rewinds onto the reel. Using the Bow Wow Barrier is as easy as opening and closing your door without the barrier, only now it's safer!

  Quick and Easy Installation - The Bow Wow Barrier bracket kit provides the appropriate screws and hardware needed to mount the brackets to most doors for use as a pet barrier. The installation is simple:

Step 1:  Follow the Bow Wow Barrier User’s Guide to attach the
              brackets to the door and the wall or door jamb.

Step 2:  Snap the reel into the wall side brackets and then latch
             the handle rod into the door side brackets.

That's all there is to it - the Bow Wow Barrier will retract and extend on its own! You now have a hands-free, automatic (and quiet), retractable barrier in place whenever you open your door. If you want to open your door to its full extent, just unlatch the handle rod from the door brackets and the barrier no longer restricts the door opening.

What is the mesh fabric made of and how durable is it?
The mesh is a non-toxic, reinforced polymer composite material that doesn’t contain Lead, Phthalate, Latex, or BPA chemicals and is formaldehyde free. The fabric is also UV, mildew, and highly scratch resistant. To test how durable the mesh is, we attached a piece to a cat scratching post. After several months of use by cats, the fabric still had not torn.

Can I get a sample of the mesh?
You sure can! Just email our customer service at: . Be sure you include your name and full mailing address so we can mail the samples to you.
