This door isn't the easiest to install and after less than 30days of my cat using it, it has fallen off. Buying a better version, and new screen because we have a big hole now. :/
Reviews for this product were pretty variable. I have an 80lb pit bull and the door is fine. I had to assemble it while still attached to the door, adding a bit of trickiness. I added some glue to each corner and clamped it with chip clips for a few hours. It's holding up fine and my dog is thrilled to be able to go in and out.
I just installed this doggie door as I was waiting for my puppy to get more to her grown size and then for warm we weather It does not stay in place there is no attachment to the actual screen- the door simply attached to itself with the screen i between so it slips out easily - the dog cannot bump it at all - it will fall off. Do not buy!!
I'm usually good at reading reviews, but for some reason this time I didn't. The reviews say that the screws are garbage and to get some better ones. Mine didn't come with any screws at all. Not sure how this isn't gonna end up trashing the screen altogether as it is mounted on the screen.I'm handy so will purchase something stronger to mount to. Very disappointed overall.
Like it, easy for my pets to use and keeps out a lot of pests
This is a very poor door. Plastic frame held together by electrical tape! My door fell apart on third day. I had to put it back together with duct tape. Couldn't return as I had tossed packaging. Stay away!
This is a great door, and finally fixed the loose screen issue that was letting flies / mosquitoes in (previously had a net curtain to let pup in and out, which constantly left gaps between the door, letting critters in). I followed 'MotherofPotatoes' advice and used hardware-purchased screws & nuts (Thanks @MOP!). I also used grey mesh type tape to cover the screen area before cutting through the screen (this seems to hold it together well and serves as an extra level of protection against accidental tears when putting screws thru). I also followed MOP's advice on first using a drill bit to drill holes through both frames. Doggy was unsure at first, but was in and out on his own by the end of the day. So glad I purchased this door as I'm finally able to get rid of the rinky-dinky mesh curtain that looked super sloppy.
And buy aluminum tape over by the dryer vent section of the store - more on this later So I read other reviews and I’m here to confirm, if you buy this door, run to the hardware store and pick up some 3/4” machine screws (you’ll need 6) and matching nuts. Before installation, drill out the existing screw holes on both pieces of the door frame. It’s plastic, so a hand drill was able to go through it quite easily. Feed the bolts through these new holes, tightening the pieces together through the screen with the nuts. This gives the pieces a very strong fit, where the in-the-box screws and suggested mallet method are simply bad. I reinstalled the door before tightening the bolts all the way, but your mileage may vary. Use the aluminum tape to line the top and bottom of the door to keep those two pieces of panel that tend to pucker together. The aluminum doesn’t reduce the pull of the magnets on the flap. Other tapes may also work, but I like the rigidity and staying power of aluminum tape for this fix. Since installing my door like this, I’ve had no issues with even the most aggressive charges through the flap by my dogs. This door is affordable, but the design is flawed. With a little bit of prep and can-do attitude, you will have a great pet door.
I bought this for a new screened in patio enclosure. It is very flimsy and the locks don’t actually keep the door from opening.
Cats can come and go into there catio at will.We get a little more sleep!
