Why did my chicken door opener string break?

If your string has broken, there are a few potential explanations - please go through this checklist when replacing it in order to ensure it does not happen again:

  • Ensure that the door is not sticking at all
  • Ensure that you have not exceeded the 75cm limit on the string (see here)
  • Ensure that the weight of the door does not exceed 1kg
  • Ensure that the string is leaving the door opener vertically and is not rubbing on the exit hole.
