Very high quality review by Rick
The overall fit and finish was very good and the quality of the door seems really good. The installation was a bit more cumbersome than I had anticipated and was fairly time consuming although the instructions were accurate. I would recommend this door to anyone wanting a secure long lasting door for their dogs.

Great door but.... review by Brian
So i got this magnificent door, to fit my HUGE 96 inch sliding door. while it was a great fit, i also had a problem withe the h shaped plastic adjustments (on top) not reaching the whole distance across the top of doggy door. (leaving a 2 inch gap.
i called customer service and they directed me to the manufacturer who could only send me another one (not a bigger one that would actually fit) just another h beam so i could rig something up to fit. In the end i found some weather stripping that covered it (store and some glue). However it left a sour taste in my mouth that such an expensive item would not fit, nor would actually have the correct size beams (beams are actually 2 inches or so shorter then width of doggy door) so i am not sure how they expect it to fit.
As for the below review talking about the draft guard, i was under the impression that went on the back of the now half open door to block the draft from there. i do have a guard that goes in between the door (sliding) and doggy and i still have the gap.
Overall a great door with very durable materials. However beware some manual adjustments and improvisations may be needed for a snug and draft free fit..

Great product review by ledge41
We are very happy with this product.
The "H" shaped plastic adjustment for the top of the door is 1/2" too short so we had to cut a piece of 2x4 to fill the gap and caulk it.
The only part that doesn't seal well is where the two regular sliding doors now mismatch with each other. We are still looking for a solution besides taping it on both the inside and outside spaces.
This product is expensive but well-made and worth the investment.
ed. note - The Ideal VIP product includes a 'draft stopper' designed to seal the gap mentioned. This customer should call our customer service if that item was missing from the package (we cannot identify our reviewers).

An awesome product review by Craig P.

I've had this door for 5 years and I love it. It fits right in with my patio slider and looks like it was built in.
I am totally blown away by this company. I recently noticed that the 10 inch strip of weather stripping was worn and I called Ideal to get a replacement weather strip. Instead of just the strip, they sent a whole new door flap (the dual pane, triple tile one), at no charge to me.
If I had another door, I would buy Ideal with no questions. They aren't cheap, but given that the fit was effortless, the quality unmatched, and the service incredible... there is no reason to consider any other door.

Perfect fit! Never had a dual pane sliding glass door, so I was relieved to find the Ideal VIP 150 Patio Panel Dog Door. It works like a charm.
