I installed this door in about an hour. The instructions were easy to read and understand(idiot proof)! The templet to trace onto the door made it way easy to get the door in the right place and where to cut and drill the holes for the door to be installed. With a few basic tools-long phillips screwdriver, level, masking or painters tape, pencil, Two different sized drill bits(1/2" and a 3/8"), drill, and if you don't have one or one you can borrow- a jig saw(i had a saws all which worked but you have to be more careful when cutting the door), the install was easy! the product is sturdy and quality seems great. The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because i haven't tested it during theI installed this door in about an hour. The instructions were easy to read and understand(idiot proof)!

The door is installed to my back door from the garage and the water heater is in the garage. The two dogs, a rottie and a pit mix, took some coaching with treats to go in and out through the door several times to get use to pushing the flaps to go through the door. Great product so far!… more
So far so good

My husband had no trouble installing into the outside door and our dog has not had any trouble using it. I used his favorite treats and had him go out and then in for a treat and he got the idea pretty fast. It has a nice slide to close it off at night or when we are gone. The wind was blowing the other day and it didn't flap open so hoping it will hold up to the winter storms.

was replacing an Ideal Pet door with this one as I live in the Northeast and needed something that kept the cold out better. Wished that the hole for the first door matched the one needed for this one but not quite. Still, only had to cut a bit more and filled in any empty spots with some insulation. Easy to install and I can tell a big difference already. The double flaps really insulate well. Dog and cat had no problem using it right away.
Excellent Pet Door!

Good instructions for ease of installation. Frame is even large enough to cover small goofs! My dog Rose ( Large German Sheppard) took to it immediately. The double flap really does keep out any drafts. I would recommend this door for any large dogs. I mounted mine on a steel clad door.
This is a great door.

Love the double flap door. It replaces a single flap that I had. Easy to install and so far so good. This was my first purchase from Chewy and the price was excellent.

The door was relatively easy to install, you do need a jig saw if you don't have one (we rented one). The dogs adopted the door rather quickly, and so far it has met expectations relative to weather. We definitely recommend this product.

The super large doggy door arrived very soon after ordering and is installed and the door is great and as advertised.

This is our second door like this. The first one is still being enjoyed at our old house. Great doors. Well built
My dogs love this door!!

This door is sturdy and was extremely easy to install and my door is a raised panel metal door. My little chihuahua was trying to use it before we even got it finished. My older girl, a Shih Tzu, was reluctant because she has never used a doggie door. However, she is now going in and out like a pro. I would recommend this door. One caveat, it is smaller than other doors I looked at, so for my small dogs, I got a medium. It is perfect. I love the double flaps. I know that will help keep the Texas heat out of the house.
Very pleased with this door

I had to replace my old petsafe door because they stopped making the door I had and I couldn't get a replacement flap for it anymore. Just as well as I am so much more happier with this door. Works very well keeping the rain out (the other door I had didn't and my floor was ruined) Took my dogs a few days to adjust to using it because of the double flaps but they have no problems now. I'm looking forward to fixing my floor and having it stay fixed now. Also replacing the flap later when it gets worn out is very easy. And installing it was super easy too. I am very pleased with this door. It's much better than what I had before hands down!
