*measured from the ground to the tallest point of their back
The recommended pet width is generally 1-2" added to the width of the flap.

Still don't know which flap size to get? Here is a measurement guide to help you out

Height Adjustment Ranges

  • B- Shorty 75" - 77 3/4" (additional cost)
  • C- Regular 77 5/8" - 80 5/16"
  • E- Tall 93 3/4" - 96 1/2" (additional cost)

Step-Over Options - These options can be extremely important in properly fitting your pets. They are offered as drop-downs after the size, height and color choices are made.

Custom Height Add-On Extension - If your sliding glass door track is not accommodated by one of these height ranges, you can special order a height extension for either the Regular or Tall panels. Be sure to read the Details tab carefully to see how to compute how tall you'll want the custom height extension to be.  If you already have the Ideal "Fast Fit" Panel but it's too short for your slider you can purchase just the Ideal "Fast Fit" Height Extension.

Replacement Flaps and Parts You can get just the replacement flap at Ideal "Original" Replacement Flaps or you can get both the flap and the plastic frame a Ideal "Fast Fit" Replacement Flap Assembly.

If your measured track height is near the bottom of the adjustment range then you should review A Note of Caution.

Wondering how to measure your track? Review our Track Measuring Guide.

The maximum over-all height you can achieve in this manner is 110-½," and the tallest the extension should be built is 14." It can be made to 16", but the manufacturer suggests that you would then semi-permanently install it for stability. Because the height extension is built to your custom dimension, it is not returnable, though the panel itself is (provided you haven't ordered any other custom feature like an outside keyed lock or custom step-over).

Ideal Fast Fit Patio Panel Pet Door

When you're looking for a "best bang for your buck" deal, an Ideal Fast Fit is the perfect solution. Affordable and functional, this pet door is lightweight and easy to install. The spring-loaded design allows you to securely place it in your sliding glass door track within seconds, and the clear vinyl flap opens easily for your pet to use to access your home.

Features of the Ideal Fast Fit

  • Single pane glass is lightweight for quick and easy install, and easy removal when necessary. 
  • Since this panel will not mate with an existing slider door lock, Ideal supplies a pin lock. This does require drilling holes, so if you're a renter and do not want to put holes in the slider, then we suggest using the old "broomstick in the track method" or a Charley Bar.
  • Clear, vinyl flap is easy for pets to learn to use and push open.
  • Solid magnetic strip at the bottom of the flap to help keep the flap closed when not in use.
  • Customizable options for the perfect fit for your slider and your pet.
  • Aluminum frame designed for sliding glass door tracks at least 7/8" thick.
  • 1 year warranty.

Perfect Time for an Ideal Fast Fit

  • If you are on a budget and want a pet door for your sliding glass door, a Fast Fit is the best choice.
  • For pets that may be timid or struggle with pushing through a heavier flap, the vinyl flap in the Fast Fit is easy to learn!
  • This is a great option if you need something temporary for a rental home where you can't drill holes in the track.
  • If you travel often and need a door that you can take in or out.
  • Great solution for storm prone areas where you need to be able to remove it quickly to secure your home.

Custom Options

Our step-over options allow you to tailor your pet door to properly accommodate your pet's size. (See the drop-downs after you choose flap size, adjustment and frame color. If you need help choosing the right size, see our page on how to measure your pets.) Custom height extensions can be added to your order should the inserts be too small for your sliding glass door. (Custom orders are not returnable. So please see the detailed instructions below to ensure you order the correct size.)

  • WONDERFUL PRODUCT! review by Kathryn

    I really didn't think that a "no screws" doggie door would be both quality and fit. Happily, I was wrong! SO EASY to install, and it's quality is fabulous. I have it installed along the same track as my screen door. If I'm going to be gone with my dog, I fully close and lock the sliding door. For winter, when I rarely go out this patio door, I will move the doggie door so that it's in the same track as the sliding door. Then, I"ll be able to use the easy to install locking mechanism along the bottom of the frame.

  • Not beach worthy review by Pam
    5 3 Not beach worthy

    Well built door, great customized height for all my cats and dogs to use. Unfortunately, door faces the beach and is not as air tight as I would like it to be and the flap does not stay closed. And it doesn't fit in the hurricane sliding glass door without additional adjustments and weather stripping. All my animals are old and was worried that they couldn't open the flap that was rated for stronger winds.

  • Small means small review by Becky
    5 4 Small means small

    The height and width of the door works great but the flap opening for our dog is very, very small. Since she weighs only about 14 pounds I thought a small size would be sufficient. She definitely could use a medium but since the product is a “custom“ size it can’t be returned. Would absolutely love if it could be exchanged. The flap size would be my only complaint. Order came in a timely fashion and works well with our patio door.

    This door fits great. Dogs love it. I have one very short legged dog and two german shepherds. I bought the xxl flap for the door and the german shepherds have to stoop about a 1/2 inch to get through it but they are getting used to it. Love the clear plastic flap.

  • Need GOOD sealing products review by Hare
    5 2 Need GOOD sealing products

    I have the x-large pet door. It could definitely get upgraded by providing better quality bug strip not a flimsy one that you have to cut and paste, a single 7’ would work for most. The adhesive rubber for between the new pet door panel and the slider definitely needs to be thicker, like 1/2 inch beings none of our existing door locking mechanism can be used as stated. You don’t have any after market seals to aliveate this issues. Home depot or Lowe’s type seals are way to soft. HELP you guys!!

  • Good overall, not very secure. review by Kris
    5 4 Good overall, not very secure.

    This is a relatively inexpensive door for a hard to fit space. We have an extra tall ceiling and couldn't buy the standard size. They cut to fit an extra panel for the top that looks the same as the glass door below. It is not an overly secure. I wouldn't put it on a house or first floor apartment unless you secured it better. We are on the 3rd floor, so that was ok. We use a stick in the door since you can't lock the patio door now. We did need to get extra weather strip foam because there was a definite gap due to screws in our patio door. It was inexpensive and easy though. There is still a bit of a draft. I wouldn't use this in cold climates.

    This is the second pet door that I have Owned. The first one lasted over 15 years! It is very easy to install and fits perfectly. Even though I live in a zone seven area, it is snug enough to keep the cold out. The magnetic holdings on the flap or strong enough to withstand strong winds.

    The bronze door was a perfect match for my 70’s patio doors - important to me and to my HOA who governs exterior appearance. Install was easy, though the weatherstripping provided was precut and not long enough for the doors. This necessitated a trip to the hardware store. My pup likes the freedom the door provides

  • Good Product review by Anthony
    5 4 Good Product

    Easy to install and fits perfectly. There are only two improvements I would suggest. Maganets on the sides of the door flaps like you have on another model. The xlarge flap could use help on the sides to try to make the fit as tight as possible. The other suggestion would be to have a latch on the side so it can be fastened to the sliding glass door. My old door had that feature. Of course with an xlarge flap someone could easily crawl through the dog.

I had to get a very large door for a dog I adopted from a local animal shelter (he's a Mastiff mix!), and this one is a perfect size for him. I will order from you again.

I'm very impressed with the quality and the way the door fits so snugly into our patio door opening. Worth every penny! Thank you very much!!!!

  • Good but not great review by Frank
    5 3 Good but not great

    Its a very handy dog door. I've had it for about 4 months. My dog uses it all day. I hate it tho because the flat there is a small gap that doesnt close and seal all the way so air gets in all the time. This is the 2nd door i've replaced, and Im worried when summer comes. All the heat will get in. Right now is cold and air gets in the house and the house is constantly cold. I need to figure out a way to make a custamizable flap because the plastic one is not the best.

    I purchased this door with the low-height step over option as a gift for a friend with three dogs. The low-height option works great for her dachshund and basset hound; they can go in and out with ease. My friend absolutely loves this door because it saves her from having to constantly let in or out one of the dogs, not to mention the multiple times every night that she would have to get out of bed and go let out one of the dogs. It is worth every penny.

  • Not the quality I expected review by Very Large Dog
    5 2 Not the quality I expected

    Pet Doors was the only website I could find the size I needed. So I was left with no choice. I figured all doors are the same right? Wrong. The door is so thin, and does not fit into the door track well at all that it shakes every time my dog goes in and out. Not to mention the air flow that comes in between the door, the slider and the top and bottom. Also, because i assume this door is the same one they use whenever you ask for different step over options, that is is in pieces, and again, since it does not fit within the door very well, it is separating at the "seams". I have had this doggy door for 3 months and am frantically looking for another one before the cold weather hits. Would I buy from again, NO!!

    We had a hard time finding a tall door for our slider. Luckily, we did find one that is functional & aesthetically pleasing. I love that I can see out of it & it looks like it belongs. Neither my husband nor myself are very handy but we got it in fine. I did go up to the auto supply & purchased more insulation as we needed more, easy deal. I would buy again. One other thing.. The delivery guy dropped it off at our neighbor's house in error, just in case FYI

    5 3 Decent product

    Installation was very simple after I cut about 1/8 inch off the top metal piece so it would fit in the tracks of my 96" slider. My 30lb black lab puppy took to it quickly and loves running in and out at full speed. Gaps between the pet door and the slider are a problem, but weather stripping has helped minimize those. Not exactly what I had hoped for, but it has been workable.

  • Easy to Install, Great Product for the Price review by kshgw
    5 3 Easy to Install, Great Product for the Price

    I would say that this was very easy to install, as long as you don't mind some minor gaps and it can fit between the lock in your slider track, since it doesn't use the lock feature. It's not the most secure installation. A burglary could probably get the sliding bolt to pop out if he had enough time or just break out the door to squeeze in. However, it works well for everyday use. I wish the sizing was more uniform with other doggy doors. I had medium doors at my old house, so I ordered a medium without looking carefully at the opening size. The opening is not big enough for one of my dogs, who used to be able to fit through my old medium door. Otherwise, I'm very happy with the purchase and it was much cheaper than other doors.

  • Great review by Old English Sheepdog
    5 5 Great

    100 lb Sheepdog, the Super Large works best. Although we were replacing another door, She did not like the smell, we left up with the old door in place for a month before she finally was able to use the new one. Now she loves it, it is quieter than the old flap.

    One recommendation is a wide strip(2") to work with slider, we have an older house that has settled and the opening is not correct as it should be. Some sort of accommodation would be great.

  • Not what I expected! Just a thin Pane. review by Rob
    5 1 Not what I expected! Just a thin Pane.

    This door is about one third of the width of the slot it is fitting into (standard slider slot). I had to buy several rolls of the rubber molding stuff that is sticky on one side. I added six layers to the sides, top, and bottom on the outer face of the door to fill the giant gap between the door and frame. It also does not attach to the slider door, or the door lock, or the latch on the frame side. It is simply just a thin pane of metal and glass that buts up against your door. You have to find ways to fill the gaps and cracks. Also allows anyone to easiyy brake in. The weather gap strip they sent fell off within a coupe days and didn't do much anyway. You have to stuff things in the gaps between the window pane openings on both sides to prevent air leakage. The pane of glass is also thin and accumulates a lot of condensation on colder days. It is not very warm. The flap just blows around with a slight breeze, and never hangs straight. Always cold air blowing right in.

    ed. note - There is no such thing as a 'standard' track dimension for sliding glass doors. Patio pet doors are traditionally built on the thin side so as to fit in any.

    A pet door gives everyone peace of mind! The dogs seem to relish making their own decisions about when to go out in the backyard. And at night how nice to not have to get up and open a door! They figured it out immediately! No one with a cat or dog should hesitate adding this convenience to their routine.The door looks great, fits so tightly against the sliding panel that no one notices it. GREAT product!!!!

  • medium flap pet door review by Lia
    5 2 medium flap pet door

    flap is too small, even when I measured dogs appropriately. Unless there is a fire and the dogs are super motivated to get out of the house they dont use it. Surprised there isnt a large as the sizing goes from medium to extra large, not good for a 35 lb dog, who is a little squeezed for the medium. Now it just sits there. Buy a size larger when in doubt anf dont use their measuring advise.

    ed. note - The Fast Fit 'XLarge', at 10 1/2" x 15", would be a 'large' by any reasonable standard.

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE! review by Kristin McDonald

    I have a home office (with a big sliding door) which I share with one of my employees. I also have 2 big labs who love that they can hang out with us... BUT, they drive us crazy by always wanting to in, out, in, out, in, out. It got to the point where I bought a pedometer to see how much I was walking per day just letting them out! I looked into doggie doors, but did not want a permanent hole in my wall. I founds some Patio Pet doors but they could not accommodate the XXXL size I needed for my dogs. The, I found this miracle. First, it's not permanent. Second, it came in a Super Large size, and third, it was super easy to install. This patio pet door has truly increased my productivity! It's a life saver... I love, love, love it. It works fantastic. My two big guys are not gentle on anything, and the door has withheld them racing in and out like bulls. Thank you, and YES. I highly recommend this product!

    5 5 Second Patio Fast Fit Door and love both

    I lived in a townhouse with taller sliding doors. Bought the larger one for my 3 lb. pet bunny, Roger. It was so easy to put up and just perfect. Roger learned how to use it FAST but thought he was too good to use that door so a bit of a conflict with whose the boss in the house. Then I moved to another home and the doors were shorter so bought another door for Roger so we could argue over his using it, and it was just as easy to install. The customer support is outstanding.

  • Good value but need engineering improvements review by Oz
    5 3 Good value but need engineering improvements

    I ordered the door after extensive serch. It arrived on a timely basis. It would have been better if the quality of workmanship was better. Rubber seals in a few areas were separated from the frame & glass. I had to fix them. It would not fit into the tracks per instructions. I needed to deviate from the instructions and had to install rubber seal to close the gaps. Because the glass is thin in Florida climate more power will be used for the A/C.

  • Love this door. review by Sam
    5 5 Love this door.

    Great product. Wish we would have ordered the Patio Pet Door six months earlier. We had gotten two puppies and were having a hard time potty training them. They did not give us any signs when they wanted to go out. Since installing the patio door there has not been one accident. After the door was installed it took 2 minutes to train the dogs on how to use it. We ordered the extra large and my standard schnoodle (70 #) has no problem with the opening. If you have a dog you need to buy this product.

    5 5 Love This Door

    This is perfect for us. Took exactly 5 minutes to install and now my two dogs can go in and out as they like. The house also stayed warm even when the evenings went down to the 30s. I wasn't sure it would be rugged enough, but my two 90lb labs haven't phased it even though the young one likes to run through it at full speed.

  • Darth (Malamute) Thanks you review by Darth's mom
    5 5 Darth (Malamute) Thanks you

    This door changed our entire house-hold. My dog is over 3' tall at the shoulder, and about 1' wide during summer. In Winter this dog gains his winter coat so we remain hopeful he will still fit through the door

    We ordered the XL door, and it's a bit tiny, but Darth thinks it's the grandest bestest thing EVER that the tiny townhouse back-yard now belongs to him entirely.

    I took a sausage, got him all exited, then threw the sausage through his new door into the backyard, lifted the bottom of the flap to show him go, and out he went. Then I held a sausage inside and in he came to get his sausage. That was that. He Loves the door, and we love the freedom it offers all of us while keeping the house toasty and warm

    Thank you PetDoors!
    Darth's mom

    5 1 Intall instructions suck

    This might be an awesome product if you can figure out how to install. The installation instructions make no sense at all. How is it you don't have a how to video on your site? I am highly unsatisfied with this product.

    ed. note: We do have an installation video.

Quick Video on Installing the Fast Fit

1. Release automatic height adjustment by turning knobs located near top of panel counter-clockwise and pressing. Height adjustment panel should fully extend upward (pull up on panel if necessary).

2. Open sliding glass/screen door.

3. Insert Fast Fit with knobs facing inside. Place top edge into top track of sliding glass/screen door. Lift up and swing lower portion of panel onto ridge in sliding glass door (or screen door).

4. Slide Fast Fit against doorjamb and make sure that top is fully extended, not tilted to one side, and bottom of panel is on ridge in bottom track.

5. Hand-tighten knobs by turning clockwise to lock Fast Fit in place.

To permanently install the Fast Fit, you may screw through the aluminum fins that protrude on the existing frame of your door. Drill through the fins into the Fast Fit. Install two screws in the top and two in the side by the bottom of door. Do not put any screws into the frame by the glass of the Fast Fit as breakage may occur.

Optional permanent placement for fixed panel sliding door. Remove screws that hold fixed glass panel in place and slide over. Insert the Fast Fit panel between stationary panel and it's jamb and re-fasten fixed glass panel.

Installing Security Lock (Optional)

1. With sliding door in closed position, place lock in desired location with bolt in the retracted position, pointed toward the sliding glass door or stationary window rail. Leave approximately 1/8" clearance between bolt tip and aluminum rail (Figure 5).

2. Holding lock firmly in place, mark screw holes and center of bolt in rail of sliding door or stationary window.

3. Drill two 5/32" holes for mounting screws and a 3/8" hole for locking bolt. Caution: Do not drill into glass.

4. With sliding door in the closed position (with Fast Fit installed), mark position for second set of holes.

Repeat above instructions. Caution: Do not drill into glass.

In Depth Ideal 'Fast Fit' Installation

Click below to expand:

Yes - you get the regular panel with the height adjustment range that is shorter than your custom height as well as the custom-built extension panel that allows the door to fit the height of your track.

It's not. We have just combined the two for your convenience. The prices are exactly the same as well.

As long as the panel does not have a custom stepover, you can return the panel portion w/ the pet door, but you will not be able to return the custom height extension panel.

Calculate the height extension needed for a given track height by subtracting the maximum height of the adjustment range of the panel you've chosen from the measured height of your sliding glass door track and then add back 2-1/8".

Aluminum - if you have a vinyl track, the Ideal brand has the VIP and VPP models available. However those will not offer any custom heights outside of the listed adjustment ranges.

Ideal panels are best suited for temperate climates where insulation is not a vital factor when choosing a pet door.

No, the Fast Fit does not have an adjustable step over. However, you can get a custom step-over. Keep in mind that the custom step over cannot be adjusted once built, and it does make the item non-returnable.

The frame is 7/8" thick.

The door comes with a pin lock you can install. Alternatively, you can purchase a Charley Bar for added security.

Yes because the CUSTOM portion of this product is the extension panel that is built specifically for the height you need. So the box should contain the panel and the height extension.
