The Ideal VIP Hefty Cat is a dual pane glass insert that uses the Ideal Hefty Cat Flap.

Ideal Pet Products has developed the VIP Patio Insert for customers with vinyl sliding doors. This energy efficient vinyl frame is made with particular attention to detail in style and performance. The insert has double paned "Low-E" glass and the very popular Hefty Cat 4-way locking cat flap.

4-Way Locking Control Settings:

Open Both Ways
Closed from both directions
Closed going outside - Open coming indoors
Open going outside - Closed coming indoors

Note: The generous flap (7 3/4"w x 10 3/4"h) is not only great for the larger cat but works perfectly for small dogs and toy breeds.

The overall frame of these units is made with vinyl and is thicker than any other patio pet door on the you a closer match when your sliding door meets with the unit. Another great improvement is the ability to lock your sliding door directly to the VIP Patio Insert! (Fits most existing locks). All other patio inserts use axillary locking systems to secure the sliding door.These inserts come in variety of height ranges for nearly every size of sliding door. The VIP is designed to be installed "semi-permanently". The latches for fastening the unit into place are hidden from view, so you do not have any visible screws or holes to detract from the aesthetics of your sliding doors. The VIP is most certainly a higher-end patio insert, requiring slightly more involvement with installing than traditional patio inserts.

Note: There is a 20% restocking fee for all VIP returns

The bottom section of the VIP is designed to straddle the center guide rail that is most often found in the channel on the floor. (This is the groove that the your sliding door follows).

The VIP will fit center guide rails that are 3/4" wide or less. The VIP will fit 99% of the tracks out on the market, but you will want to make sure that the center guide rail is not wider than 3/4".

The overall thickness of the VIP unit is 1 1/2" in width. These will closely match the thickness of the frame on your sliding door. The VIP is equipped with hardware allowing you to LOCK your slider to the VIP, (99% of the time). Otherwise a brace-bar is recommend.
