Ideal "Deluxe" Series Pet Doors

This pet door is very similar to the PetSafe Classic (formerly Pet-Eze) pet doors offered by Radio Systems. The flap is relatively light making it particularly appropriate for sharing between small and large pets. It is also clear and not tinted. A long magnet across the bottom pulls a metal strip crimped to the bottom of the flap. This feature may serve to identify the pet door as it is unique.

The self-framing adjustment range is 1/2" to 1 3/4" which will accommodate most normal dimension interior and exterior doors.

A metal frame supports the flexible, vinyl flap across the top. Replacement of the flap is easy though it's important to choose the correct flap (see Ideal Deluxe flaps . A plastic locking cover provides a good seal when in place.

If you are planning to replace an existing Ideal Deluxe Series pet door with a new one you should review our information at Ideal Urgent Notice.

PLEASE NOTE: This product ships directly from the manufacturer and may take 1-3 business days before it actually ships.

Very nice
How do you rate this product?

It was easy to install in Storm-screen combination door. We have 7 dogs and 2 cats, so it gets a lot of use. My one dog goes in an out at least 25 time a day. She could work for consumer reports. So far it is holding up well. It is nice that you have replacements if needed.

Excellent Pet Product
How do you rate this product?

I ordered this pet door for an interior basement door for my cats. Plastic doors friends have for their pets always had installation or durability issues. The metal framed doors and the excellent magnetic strip are the best.

Ideal "Deluxe" Pet Door Detailed Installation instructions



Scissors . Hammer and Awl (or Nail) . Drill and 3/8" Bit . Saber Saw . Phillips Screwdriver

  • 1. Determine template placement - Using scissors, cut template along dotted lines as indicated. Center template (width) in middle of door; tape in place. Position the top of the template 2" taller than your pet's shoulder. Important: Under no circumstances should the bottom edge of the rough opening be less than 3" from the bottom edge of the wood door.
  • 2. Outline pet door opening - With template taped in place, use a pencil to draw around the inside edge of template onto door. Use a nail or awl to mark inside edge corner holes and outer hardware drill holes.
  • 3. Drilling holes - Drill four 3/8" diameter individual holes (the inside edge corner locations will serve as a guide). Next: Drill the 3/8" diameter outer door hardware holes.
  • 4. Cutting the opening - Begin with one of the inside edge corner holes. Next: Using a sabre saw, carefully cut along the pencil line.
  • 5. Assembly & Adjustment (See Diagram 1) - Insert outer frame (A) (no flap) into opening from exterior side. Make certain frame is flush with door surface. No adjustment is necessary if frame does not extend beyond interior opening. If part of the outer frame extends into interior, remove "break-off" levels on outer frame (B) as required. Use pliers to break off a single level at a time starting at top, bottom then sides. Start at corner and bend metal inward toward center in 2" intervals. Caulking is recommended under outer frame. Place inner frame (C) (with flap) into opening from inside of door, hold in place, insert binder posts (D) through exterior frame, then install screws (E) and tighten until snug. Do not over-tighten. If screws extended past outer edge of post, remove screw, cut-off accordingly, then re-insert. Ideal Deluxe Installation

    Note: Uneven Surfaced Doors:

    If your door has an uneven surface, after cutting the rough opening, build up the lowest area with wood frame thick enough to make an even door surface. If both sides of your door are uneven, repeat the process for the other side.

    Installation In Walls And Other Types Of Doors:

    The pet door can be installed in walls, steel doors and storm doors, however, additional materials such as wood framing, plaster, touch-up paint, longer frame screws and additional tools may be required. Walls: Once an opening has been made in a wall it will be necessary to build a frame to cover the exposed area between wall surfaces. Use wood screws to attach interior and exterior frame to wall surfaces. When cutting through walls, extreme caution must be used so as not to cut any concealed electrical wires, gas lines or water pipes. An Ideal Wall Kit is available.

    Steel Doors: To create an opening in a steel door use a jigsaw with a hacksaw blade to cut the opening starting at pre-drilled corner holes.

    Storm Doors with 1/2" or less: Starting at any pre-drilled corner hole, use tin snips to cut out rough opening. Break off levels 1 & 2 (B) as required (See Diagram 1)

Ideal Pet Products Limited Lifetime Warranty

We believe that our pet doors are the most durable on the market. That's why we were the first to offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty in workmanship and materials. All defective parts will be replaced free of charge. Limited Lifetime Warranty applies to the original purchaser only, with proof of sales receipt. Excludes flap or breakage of the glass panel.

A replacement part will be sent when we receive proof of purchase and a check in the amount of $10.00 to cover shipping and handling, payable to:

24735 Ave. Rockefeller
Valencia, California 91355
Attn: Pet Products Warranty Dept.

This warranty is void if damage to material is due to improper installation or intentional abuse.

As with any home improvement project, if you do not have the tools or skills to properly install your pet door, we suggest using a professional handyman or licensed contractor.

Ideal imposes a 15% restocking fee on all returns.
