Product Code: KBCOONTLR
Added Strength: The front end of the Coontroller™ containing the cam locking door is lined with 22 gauge galvanized sheet metal and framed with ¼” cold rolled metal rods to provide the strength needed when dealing with aggressive raccoons. This helps to prevent the dexterous raccoon from lifting the door from the outside. The back end of the Coontroller™ also has the same metal rods that provide additional reinforcement. These added features protect the condition of the Coontroller™ and therefore the attic or structure as well.
Two-Door System: The key to this excluder is the unique cam locking double door that allows wildlife to push through to gain access to the outside, but locks behind them so if they try to re-enter, they are stopped cold. The Coontroller™ is 17” long by 8” wide and 8” deep. It weighs 8 pounds and the device is made with 1” by 1” galvanized 14 gauge wire mesh.
It Works!: Thanks to the two-door cam locking system, the second or outside door, automatically locks so the raccoon can’t open the door once it is out of the structure. The raccoon will walk through both doors and once the second door comes down the first door is positioned in a fashion that will lock the second, making it impossible for the animal to lift the door and return to its young or nest. This is an important consideration when using a one-way door device as you will need to go up to the nesting area to remove the young too small to exit once the adult is excluded. The door itself comes down at a 45 degree slant. This dimension of the door prevents the raccoon from having access inside the device and therefore being able to trick the lock. Galvanized sheet metal lines every side of the opening and extends 5” over the device. The first, or inside door, is therefore covered and wholly protected from any tampering once the animal has walked back into the wild.
Note: Will NOT exclude squirrels or other small rodents.

Reviewer: Kevin Cornwell (Carrollton, VA)
Completely "reenter proof", unlike other spring loaded one way doors. Coons have a habit of fiddling, but this product keeps coons from being able to get back in regardless of how long they fool with it. And it works in just about any position, including vertical. I've used it on chimney tops as well as over foundation vent holes, gable vents, and roof edges.
