The Pride Pet Door Screen Adapter
is designed to enable the regular Pride pet door to be installed in a screen. It is NOT a complete pet door by itself. You Must already have or purchase a Pride Deluxe Pet Door to go with the screen adapter.
A Pride Screen Adapter combined with a Pride Pet Door
is a much sturdier approach to installation of a pet door in a screen because the adapter is supported by the screen framing on two sides. This is the best approach for larger or more active dogs. Adapter sizes are available to accommodate all Pride Pet Door sizes.
Please review the Pride 'Installation' information to clarify the Pride Screen Adapter installation. Remember that you usually need both the screen adapter and the pet door (if you are moving a Pride Pet Door from a door to a screen then you only need the adapter).
The Pride adapter is intended to fit over a screen frame no thicker than 1/2". If your screen frame is thicker than this, you will need to rip the 'U' shape with a table saw to an 'L' shape which can then be installed. If you have a question on this point, please call.
Hot Tip Check the clearance needed to open the screen. The Pride Pet Door locking cover frame will protrude about 1/2" from the front of the pet door towards the inside of the house. If the screen is next to the door, then that track could interfere with opening the screen all the way.
Hint The locking cover tracks can be removed by drilling out the rivets that hold it. We don't think you really want a locking cover on a screen install anyway as the dog may paw and tear the screen if he's locked out by the pet door.
Important You'll also need the Pride Pet Door to fit in the screen adapter. These cost considerably more than the adapter by itself! The adapter by itself is not a complete pet door for screens.
