The Ideal Hefty Pet Patio Pet Door comes with a 4-Way Locking pet opening that is generously sized to accommodate any sized cat and small dogs. This insert is designed for easy installation and removal so that you can optimally utilize your sliding door opening as needed. Complete weatherstripping is included as well as a pin lock. We also have optional premium patio locks for added security.

The pet opening measures: 7 3/4"w x 10 1/2" h
This pet opening will accommodate the largest cat as well as small dogs.

The flap is made of durable GE Lexan, is lined with brushes for a very good weather seal. The flap door also has magnets at the bottom to ensure a tight closing flap.

The patio insert frame is aluminum, housing a safety glass upper portion. The very top of the panel is spring loaded to allow for an approx. 2.5 inch adjustment range. These patio inserts are designed to fit in the same channel as your sliding door. Your sliding door will open and close to the unit, which stays in place.

Weather striping is included, as well as pin lock assembly, however, we highly recommend that you use an brace bar or even a stick that is placed behind the sliding patio door. This method of locking your doors is much safer than relying on a lock mechanism.

The top spring-loaded adjusting section of the Patio Pet Door appears as an "H" piece when viewed from the side. The overall width of this piece is 13/16" (Will fit into most any sliding glass door track).

The spring-loaded adjustment provides for a 2.5" range for proper fitting into your opening. Most top tracks in sliding glass doors do not have any center rails, however, if you do have this feature then the Insert can straddle any rail at the top 5/8" wide or narrower.

The spring-loaded top is secured with 2 thumbscrew locks, accessible from the interior only, so that someone from the exterior of the house would not be able to compress or remove the unit.

The bottom section of the Ideal Patio Pet Door has an overall width of 5/8". A semi-circle, "C" channel is centered and runs the length of the bottom. This "C" channel is design to straddle the center rail in the channel on the floor that your sliding glass door follows.

By straddling this center rail, the Ideal Patio Pet Door will remain centered to the frame of your sliding door when closed to this unit.

Note: If the center rail in the channel on the floor is wider than 5/16", then this patio Insert will not be able to straddle it and as a result may not fit properly in your opening.

Adjustable Height Range:

The top section of the Ideal Hefty Pet Patio Door floats on two tension rods that compress or expand to obtain the best possible fit in the patio door frame. The top is fit into the upper patio slider track and the bottom rests on the bottom slider track. Once in place, there are two thumb bolts that lock the top section into place to prevent the Patio Pet door from being removed from the outside.
