All PlexiDor pet doors are made in the USA, in Bradenton, Florida.
Manufacturing, warehouse, and offices are all located in Bradenton. The door has been made there since 1985.
For the manual PlexiDor, all keys are the same. It doesn't matter since the key is used inside the house – the door cannot be unlocked from the outside.
The electronic PlexiDor is different; the collar keys that open and close the door work with RFID, and there are innumerable different codes.
The opening for the pet is smaller than the overall door size, because of the frame. Please see the following:
