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

The Hale Screen Mounted Pet Doors are pet doors for screen enclosures, doors, and porches. It screws into the bottom corner of the screen frame as opposed to clipping to the screen only, which is common among most screen dog doors on the market. If your pet loves to run through the door at full speed, this is the screen pet door for you. With this design, the Hale Pet Door for Screens proves to be stable and reliable, making life more enjoyable for both you and your pet. Everything you need to install the Hale Screen Pet Door is included; you just need to provide the screen.



  • Sleek, aluminum trim comes in four different colors to match your framing.
  • Clear, vinyl flap is easy for pets to use and see through.
  • Magnets around the flap edges ensure that the flap seals properly. Magnet strength is adjustable.
  • Fuzzy, nylon weather stripping lines the perimeter of the flap to prevent gaps and bugs from entering.
  • Available in 11 different sizes to accommodate dogs and cats of all sizes.
  • Stabilizer bar included in the Tall/Large‒Giant sizes to ensure frame stability. If you would like to add a stabilizer bar kit to a smaller size, you can choose to do so in the drop-down menu.



  • Corner fit provides more security and lasts longer than other common screen door installations.
  • Pet doors for screen doors prevent pawing or scratching of your existing screen door.
  • Lightweight flap allow pets of varying sizes to share a larger-sized door.
  • Allows you to get more use out of your screen door when the weather is nice.
  • Sturdiest screen dog door for large dogs on the market.



When ordering a Hale Pet Screen Door it is very important that you carefully follow these instructions regarding the drop-down choices.

Screen Frame Thickness Options: The Hale pet screen door has various thickness options, which are listed below.

  • If your screen frame thickness is up to ½” but no less than ⅜”, choose Under ½.” If the frame is under ⅜” then the framing might not be sturdy enough to support the pet door, so the manufacturer does not recommend this pet door for those instances.
  • If the frame is over ½” and you would like the “Universal” model, which fits most screen doors or windows over ½”, choose over ½” Universal.
  • If the frame is over ½” and you would like the custom cut version (used mainly for situations such as screen porches or sidelights) where the “Universal” model would not work, choose Over ½” Custom Cut. In this case, Hale will trim off one of the flanges on the channel in order to accommodate very thick framing. The remaining flange is ⅝” thick. This is considered a custom, special order and all returns will only receive a 50% credit.

Spline on the Interior or Exterior: If your frame thickness is the Over ½” Custom Cut Option, you will have to choose whether the spline for your screen is located on the interior or the exterior. This is determined by looking outside from the inside of your house. Your pet door must be installed on the same side as the screen mesh and spline. The factory will ensure that the framing provided will accommodate that.

Pet Door Installs in Which Lower Corner: For the Over ½” Custom Cut, you will need to specify whether you'll be installing the pet door in the lower left or lower right corner of the screen frame when looking outside from the inside of your house.

Hale Pet Door Screen Mount Stabilizer Bar Kit: A normal Hale pet screen door is supported down one side and across the bottom by your screen framing. The Screen Mount Stabilizer Bar Kit adds an additional support across the top of the pet door. Because extra stability is necessary for the larger flap sizes and more vigorous dogs, the Hale stabilizer is already included for Tall/Large‒Giant sizes in the frame color you selected. The size is 48" and and you will need to trim it with a hacksaw to fit. All fittings needed are included with the kit. For smaller sizes, you have the option in the drop-down menus to choose to purchase the kit as an add-on. If you just need the stabilizer bar kit, please go to the Stabilizer Bar Kit page.

If you have any questions about whether a Universal vs Custom Cut for over ½” frames will work, please can email us photos to customerservice@petdoors.com. This way, we can take a look and recommend what is best for your situation.

    5 5 Three Golden’s Going Strong

    We ordered the Hale Pet Door for Screens after doing lots of research. We have found this product to be perfect for us and our three Golden’s. The door for the screen was very easy to install and is very durable, but the screen door must be closed all the way or with time, the screen door will start flexing a bit especially with three Golden’s going in and out throughout the day. Great product for the price. From the description, to delivery, customer support and install instructions a full thumbs up

  • excellent review by Gabriella
    5 5 excellent

    I absolutely love this doggie door, it is the best. I live in Canada and the shipping was unbelievably fast. The door is quite costly, especially when it is converted from U.S. to Canadian funds but so very well worth it. It was very easy to install and the total time with removing part of the main screen and installing the door only took 1/2 hr. and my 2 little dogs (west highland white terriers) love it.

    20 or 21 yrs. ago when I first learned how to use the computer and got internet I ordered a doggie door online but could not remember the name of the company. It was the pet door for sliding glass doors, it was a complete panel which fit alongside of the patio door, and 12" wide. It was my very first online purchase. I was very concerned about whether or not I had done the wrong thing by ordering online, but as it turned out it was the best thing I had done. I am still using it to this day and have never had a problem with it. The only problem after so many years of heavy use, the flap is beginning to come loose. As much as I have tried, I am not able to remove the flap to replace it but electrical tape along the top where the flap swings out, has solved that problem LOL

    When I received this pet door for screen doors, I realized immediately where I had purchased the first one from.
    I definitely recommend Hale products. Although they are quite costly, they are very well worth it and are the very best.

  • Hale Pet Doors are quality products, easy to install, and if installed correctly last many years even with heavy use. review by Robert
    5 5 Hale Pet Doors are quality products, easy to install, and if installed correctly last many years even with heavy use.

    I have 3 corgis ranging from 19 to 24 pounds. They go in and out all day and all night long and make heavy use of the pet door(s). I installed one door several years ago and it has held up very well, requiring no real maintenance or repair. We live on a farm on the island of Hawaii where flying and crawling insects can be a nuisance so it's good that the door flap is heavy and seals well enough to prevent entrance of bugs. After years of good use on one side of our home I just bought and installed a second Hale door for our western lanai so the dogs could pass in and out on that side of the house. With the experience of installing one already the 2nd one only took me half an hour to install and the dogs adapted instantly to using it as well. I've only seen a few other pet dogs elsewhere but none were as good as the Hale Pet door.

  • Loved it! review by Mary
    5 5 Loved it!

    The door installed easily. My size came with the stabilizer bar. Inside the bar is a heavy bar of plastic. In order for the mounting clips to fit in the ends, I had to cut off some of the inside plastic bar. This is my second door. I have an older one still in excellent shape after many years of use, plus being left up all winter. This one I do wish I had gotten it wider, at the time I was focused on the height. I do think it will work just fine when one of the dogs is done growing. Although I did break both drill bits provided before I was done installing the door and used one of my own to finish.

    5 5 Very nicely made!

    I like the door very much. I did wish the little clips had a in between size. The small ones were almost to small. I had to screw the little screws a little on the slant to get into the frame. The larger clips were to big. Otherwise the door is built nice and went on perfect.

  • Attachments not secure review by Jennifer
    5 3 Attachments not secure

    The attachments that came with the pet door to secure to the screen were not going to hold into the screen at all. I would have had to return this, but luckily my handyman was able to help me and he had to modify it, purchase screws so that the door would be secure in the screen and not fall off. It works much better this way, and would have fallen off immediately with the attachments that came with the product, defeating the point of purchasing this dog door - and it was not inexpensive, it should have been made better.

    5 5 Love theses doors

    I originally bought a smaller pet door when my dog was obviously a puppy but he obviously outgrew that and I had to upgrade to a bigger doggie door and he loves this he was I will not lie a little confused when I first put it in because the flap is so clear he thought it was glass that he kept putting his foot out to check and make sure he could walk through it. LOL I love the doors both of them are great sturdy doors I also bought the dog screen mesh and that is amazing because my dog has literally run straight into the screen and it's still intact. So thank you for everything I truly think you have such a great product and such a speedy delivery time you make my life a lot easier

    5 5 awesome awesome awesome

    I bought one of these about a year ago and I installed it myself (a bit of a challenge but I got it in). The door is still as sturdy now as it was when I put it in. This has made both our lives (dog and I) a lot less complicated. If this thing ever wears out, which it isn't going to do very fast I will definitely get another.

    Thank you so much

    Thought you might be interested, took only 45 minutes to install and about 15 minutes (with Doggie Treats) to get Maggie to learn how to use the door. She loves it! The door opens on to a large outside deck that has fencing so she cannot leave the deck, except to go back into the house. She goes in and out at least a dozen times a day.

  • installation and ordering was hard review by Erik
    5 4 installation and ordering was hard

    Measurements had to be so concise especially with the framing...installing is bit of a mess but the idea is simple. It's nice peace of mind having this drilled in to add more security to it since our screen door isn't the best quality.

  • Great quality! review by Thomas
    5 5 Great quality!

    My dog seems to have the uncontrollable urge to launch herself at every bird, squirrel, or cat that comes through our backyard. But of course, her stubby corgi legs don't get her very far. Anyway, if the screen door isn't open she'll chew at it until it is. My wife told me to find a solution, so I bought one of these. The door is super durable and doesn't let in bugs, which is great. Now whenever she sees a squirrel (my dog, not my wife) she is free to chase it to the ends of the earth (not really, more like to the end of our fence).

  • Functional but not great. review by Bad Dog
    5 2 Functional but not great.

    This is an over priced item. You get a good functioning door but you really over pay for it. You have to trim the clips that come with the kit so they don't over lap the channel preventing the installation of the seal. Instructions don't mention that. The clips come pre drilled but I had to drill new holes so the screw would be centered into the frame of the pet door. The finished product looks terrible. Your old screen is expected to cover the clips. The problem is it is only 1/4" wide and it just looks bad. The screws for the clips should be countersunk or pet doors should provide a plastic or rubber trim piece to cover the clips. At $200 for the door the trim piece should be included. Conclusion is look for a less expensive door. This one is nothing special.

    5 3 Good door, installation instructions need work

    The door itself is solid and looks nice. My beef is with the installation instructions which were confusing in both terminology and clarity. The photos need to be much clearer and could use callouts to make clear what is being referred to.

    5 5 Very accomodating company.

    This company is the most accomodating company I have ever dealt with. At first the wrong door was sent, but a phone call was all that was needed to resolve that and during the phone call the wharehouse worker and I dialogued about my specific need. He took the time to look at a schematic drawing and photos of my weird screen door, and he realized that it was the same kind of door as another worker. So they were able to recommend the perfect cut/fit for me

  • Super door! review by Karin
    5 5 Super door!

    I have a large dog and a medium dog, and this door works for both of them. I love that it goes into the screen and that I can still close the actual back door at night and feel completely secure.

    My screen door has an aluminum panel at the bottom, and I wasn't exactly sure how I'd work around it. It was simple enough to cut the aluminum panel and then insert the dog door, and it gave added stability to the dog door. If I hadn't had to do that part, I would have had the door installed in under an hour. Very easy instructions to follow.

    I glad I spent the money for a sturdy door. I anticipate that it will last long past the "racing puppy" stage!

  • A house divided review by Elizabeth
    5 4 A house divided

    On this review my husband and I are a house divided so I'll give you each of our perspectives!

    Me: Would rate this product a 5 because by the time I came home, the door was installed, it took me 5 minutes to teach the dogs to use it, looks great, and keeps mosquitos out! We have two 50 pound dogs who barrel in and out of this door and it is very stable and secure.

    Husband: Would rate this product a 1 entirely due to the difficulty of installation.*

    *Disclaimer: We did not install this product as it was meant to be used. I ordered this product with husband's full knowledge that he would have to "MacGyver it" a bit. We wanted the doggie door to go next to, rather than in, the door of our screened in porch (where the dogs had already torn the screen and made their own doggie door). The framing there is quite wide and does not fall in any of the recommended installation guidelines for this product. He also did not want to order a custom doggie door as he wanted the option to return it...so as far as I'm concerned he made his own bed, so to speak!!

  • Perfect! review by Terry
    5 5 Perfect!

    OH MY GOD these doors are AMAZING!
    I have three — THREE Great Pyrenees.
    I purchased 2 Hale doors and had them installed on two of the sliding (screen) and (fiberglass) doors.
    All 3 dogs took to the pet doors instantaneously. No issues whatsoever.
    Easy to install.
    Only comment — they do get dirty — I think from the dogs coats, and the flaps get foggy. Not sure how to clean them, as windex doesn’t do the trick.
    Otherwise….just absolutely a Godsend!!!!
    The dogs now can come and go in and out to the yard as they please throughout the day.
    Thank you!

    ed note: You can use a little bit of dish soap and water to clean the flaps!

    I have had this door for 12 years and it looks and works as good as the day I installed it. The flap is still in like new condition .Its the only door I have found that is screwed onto the door frame making it solid. I have a 13 lb.. dog and 9 lb. cat that use it a lot every day.
    The only complaint I have is there is no way to lock it shut if I don't want my pets to go out .

  • Great solution review by Amy
    5 4 Great solution

    I used to have a pet door that slid into a sliding patio door for my Puggles. Our new house has French doors. Checking out the website I found this solution and thought I would give it a try. It was a little tricky in install in the screen door, but my husband and I figured it out. It took the dogs a day or two to get used to the noise the magnets make when opening and closing. I went with a large, even though my dogs are small they have both come in at the same time. While dog sitting for a friends Golden Retriever/German Shepherd mix we discovered he fits through the door. Coming in he does great, but if he goes out in a hurry he tends to pull the screen door off the tracks. So for the smaller dogs it's great. Not sure I would have been happy if I had a big dog full time.

  • You will not regret it review by DogsinDallas
    5 5 You will not regret it

    I had a horrible time finding a dog door that can go in a screen door and have the proper support for a dog who just spotted a squirrel in the back yard that needs to be chased with the maximum amount of force. When I ordered this one, I had high hopes. My hopes were greatly exceeded. I ordered the 1/2 inch version first and found that it wouldn't fit. PetDoors.com was quick to take it back and send me the universal version. At first I wasn't sure about the brackets that came with it. But, once I got it installed, I could quickly see that it was just what I needed. Great door, great experience, great support.

    5 5 We love it

    We needed a little help figuring out which door set up to get for our screen thickness etc.but Petdoors.com was very helpful and we finally figured it out. The installation was easy enough for someone who is handy otherwise I think it would be a bit of a challenge. After install our dog and we love it! So glad we got it, our puppy learned fast and it's so nice that he can come and go while we sit on the porch-no jumping up and down to let him in and out. Would definitely get the stabilizer bar. We got the large door - our daughters dog 60 lbs. "mini' golden doodle and our 25 lbs. mini golden doodle both can use this size no problems. One downside - the shipping was slow. Other pros - Magnets are strong, thick plastic flap. Definitely happy with it.

  • OK, this is awesome review by Greg
    5 5 OK, this is awesome

    Prior to this, my dogs made their own pet door by pushing through the bug screen of my sliding door. My repairs would last, oh, maybe one day tops before they'd put the world back into order and make their own door again. I left the screen torn and flapping for a year just so I didn't have to suffer the pain of seeing my repair work so easily destroyed. Then, along comes the Hale pet door for screens. It's awesome. I installed it in about an hour. One dog got it right away and easily learned to go through the door, the other took maybe five training sessions with treats on both side to coax her in and out. Now, they go in and out as they please and my screen door looks great and keep the bugs outside where they belong. Because it screws into the side and bottom of the door frame, it's supported on two sides and sturdier than I thought it would be. Would recommend!

    I have a Giant Schnauzer who loves to go outside a hundred times a day. This door allows him to go out and come in as he pleases. Due to the large size I went with the stabilizer bar. The support and quality are excellent. I choose to take this to the local hardware to install, well worth the cost for them to do this. I can't say enough about this door. Wish I would have done this years ago.

  • Excellent product! review by Keith
    5 5 Excellent product!

    I bought a Hale Pet Door for use in a screen door a year ago so I can say with experience that they are a terrific product. We have two wonderful mutts who use the door a lot. There has been no wear at all - the door opens easily when they want to go through and it closes behind them to keep out the bugs. It still looks brand new and works perfectly.

    The door was easy to install but you do have to be prepared to cut out a segment of the screen that is being replaced by the door and you need to drill holes for the screws that go into the frame of the screen door. The door attached securely using the screws provided. It looks very professional. Having the dog door has made a big improvement for all of us this summer.

    I give the Hale Pet Door for screen doors an unqualified EXCELLENT recommendation.

  • Great Product review by The Boys
    5 5 Great Product

    Our less expensive screen pet door needed constant taping and reinforcement because our dogs (13 and 18 lb.) would fly through it when they detected squirrels in the yard. This door was easy to install and is sturdier because it is screwed into the door frame. The only problems: the magnets required a firmer head butt to open the door and the click of the magnetic return scared the dogs. After a week of nonuse, despite much encouragement, we removed two of the three magnets. The dogs are flying again! The flap still completely closes with only one side magnet, is noiseless, and we're saving money on duct tape!

  • Finally something that works review by Kingstepper
    5 5 Finally something that works

    I hesitated because of the price of this solution, but the build quality is solid and the design is well though out. It was relatively easy to install and once installed, the screen remained tight and the door is not only firmly mounted on the door, I actually think it strengthened the screen door itself. It took about 15 minutes to train the dogs to use it, but now they fly through it at will. The two things I like most about it is that it uses the existing screen door, and it doesn't interfere with operation of the sliding glass door.

    5 5 Hale Pet Doors for Screens

    We purchased the x-large screen pet door this last summer. Our Standard Labradoodle & Lab-Airedale x and our Yellow Lab were destroying our sliding screen door.....chasing after squirrels & chipmunks.......We replaced that screen door so many times. My husband didn't think this screen doggie door would hold up....now he is in love with it!!!! I worried that given it was x-large that our Chihuahua couldn't get through it because of the weight......no problem. The Chihuahua just nuzzles in the corner of the flap and is out like a flash.

    Thank you for such a great product!!!!!!! We have recommended this to so many friends (& our vet!).

    5 5 Great invention!

    We have 4 dogs and one cat and the poor cat has had to make a run for it every time he wants to go outside. Now he has his own door in the window of a room the dogs don't go in. Best. Thing. Ever. It's sturdy, easy to install and not that bad looking. We love it!

    This pet door was recommended by others and it worked out perfectly. Sizing was correct, instructions for assembly accurate. All in all very pleased. Also recommended was the stabilizer since I got the tall and I am very satisfied with that also. Would definitely purchase again.

  • Excellent - Wish I'd found this 10 years ago review by Beau Radley
    5 5 Excellent - Wish I'd found this 10 years ago

    I found your product on the web and decided to give it a try as I liked the idea of the doggy door being part of the screen on our patio door. I had a screen installer put it in for me at a very minimal fee of $50.00. Well worth it and our large german shepherd absolutely has no problem with the door. Only took us one try for him to get used to it. The cat is a little more shy as she is small for the big flap, but if you hold a corner open even 1/2 inch she will then push through it. She is still just a little timid to push against it - but that's okay as I don't mind having a bit more control about when she is going outside. We got it mainly for the dog's benefit. Would highly recommend this product to any dog owners!! Thanks

    5 5 Excellent product!

    The pet door was easy to install and has worked extremely well. My dog is a young golden retriever, adult in body but puppy in mind. He hits most things running, including walls and door frames, and this pet door has really stood up well against this level of use. Even though he whumps through it coming and going, the pet door has held in place and the door flap has not shown signs of damage. I am very satisfied with the performance to date.

  • Love this door! review by Who rescued who?
    5 5 Love this door!

    We have a now 7 month old 46# rescue and he loves this door. We have it installed in a screen door that enters our sunroom and he (and we) love that he can go in and out at will. We had the door professionally installed by a screen door company and they did a great job. We have the extra large door and it looks like it will be a good size for him as he continues to grow. The door (with the stabilizer bar) appears to be very sturdy. Love it!

    ed. note - Heaven has a special place for those who rescue!

    We first bought a cheap model, and it was worthless. This looks great, is sturdy, and the flap is air tight also. The dogs love it, easy to open and close. Is Spendy in price, but the quality is SO much nicer. We bought the Med size, and gives our doxies, just alittle more room, with they go in and out. We love it..

    5 5 Great for German Shepards

    We have two German Shepherd dogs who love to be outside. Both GSDs are young and active and bolt through the door regularly and it has with stood their testing for over a month now.
    We ended up going with the "Giant" size so that the dogs would have plenty of clearance over the shoulders. Installation was easy even for a a screen door novice like myself.

  • Works great for big dogs review by big dog
    5 5 Works great for big dogs

    We installed this door in the lower corner of a screened room and it works great for out two big dogs. They are both older, so it doesn't get a lot of rough use--but it gets used a lot. We considered adding a second brace across the top for stability, but during the installation, it was clear that the door was stable enough with the attachments to the bottom and the side that we didn't need any additional framing.

  • Just what I've been wanting!! review by Different size animals
    5 5 Just what I've been wanting!!

    I've had the "slider" type dog door that takes up almost 1/2 of the people area. I wanted something that went into the screen itself. I have different size animals so with the information on how to measure and choose which side to order, left or right looking from the inside, everything fit. Since I needed the larger size I got the recommended stabilizer bar and purchased pet screen material which is designed stronger than bug screen for, well pets. It was semi-easy to self install taking about an hour. The trick was to use a thinner "rope" in the inside track since the pet screen is thicker. I have an 85lbs Akita mix, a 60 lbs pitbull, a 20 lbs lhasa apso, 13 lbs poodle mix and a cat. It works great!!

How to Order


Hale Screen Mount Pet Door


Make sure it fits!

Installation for Hale Pet Doors for Screens
Always wear eye protection and gloves when appropriate.

Before installing

The Hale Pet Door “Screen Pet Door” is designed to fit into one of the lower corners of a screen door frame or screen window frame that is ½” thick or less. In screen frames that are ½” thick or less the pet door is completely reversible and will fit into either corner of the screen frame. The purchaser must specify when ordering if their screen frame is thicker than ½” so modifications can be made at the factory to accommodate those frames. Once modifications are made at the factory the pet door is no longer reversible. This means that a “right” or “left” determination must be made at the point of order. This is done from the perspective of a person standing inside the screen and looking outward to determine on which side they wish to install the pet door; “right” or “left”.

Note: The Hale Pet Door™ screen model is not designed to work on security doors. A “door” model is much better choice for a security screen application.

Step 1: Before installation, be sure that you have the proper size pet door for your pet. If in doubt, larger is better. It may be harmful for your pet to use a pet door that is too small. A good general rule is to install the pet door so that the distance from the floor to the top of the passage opening is even or above the shoulder of your largest pet. If you have more than one pet, make sure the tallest pet has shoulder clearance and the shortest pet will not have to jump through the opening.

Step 2: Take a brief look at the large diagrams of the screen model at the end of the instructions and become familiar with various components of the screen model. This will not only help in understanding the terms used in these instructions but can be very useful should you need to call for technical support.

Step 3: Check the package you received to make sure that it contains all the necessary items.

Complete Kit includes:

Instructions with drawingWarranty
Hale Pet Door™ Screen ModelScreen Spline
5/8” #6 Phillips Head Screws7/64” drill bit

Tools you will need:

Screen spline roller (handy but not necessary)Drill
Phillips headed screwdriverRazor blade
Flat headed screwdriverNeedle-nosed pliers (optional)

Hale Pet Door for Screen Complete Kit Includes

Step 4: If the pet door has not already been factory modified for a certain position, determine which corner of the screen door is to be used for installing the pet door.

Installing Hale Pet Door for Screens - remove screen

Step 5: Remove the screen window or door from its track. The screen door can generally be removed by lifting it upward and swinging the bottom inward. Occasionally the wheels will interfere with removal. In this case, the wheels will need to be lifted upward to clear the track.

Lay the screen door on a flat surface

Step 6: Lay the screen window or screen door on a flat surface with the screen spline facing upward

Step 7: Remove the screen spline (the ribbed rubber around the screen) from the installation corner. Needle-nosed pliers work very well for removing the screen spline or you can also carefully use a screwdriver at the corner to get started. If using a screwdriver, be careful not to cut into the spline or slice into the finish of the door frame.

HINT: Only remove the spline from the corner you will be working on, going a little bit farther than the finished size of the pet door. Leave the spline attached for the moment and just push or fold it out of the way.

Remove screen spline from installation corner

fold screen material back only at the corner to install the pet door

After you have pulled up the spline, fold the screen material back only at the corner in which you want to install the pet door.

Step 8: Slide the pet door over the frame at the corner. Make sure the pet door is adjusted properly and operates smoothly while in position. It should be flush against both the bottom and side edges. If your screen model was not factory modified, there should be a U-shaped track that slides over the edge of your door frame. If your screen door is wider than ½” and your screen model was factory modified, there should be an L-shaped channel that rests on the top of your frame and allows the pet door to fit flush against the screen door frame.

Slide the pet door over the frame at the cornerL-shaped channel that rests on the top of your frame and allows the pet door to fit flush against the screen door frame.
Drill through the sides and bottom of the inner pet door frame and screen frame

Step 9: Drill through the sides and bottom of the inner pet door frame and screen frame with the 7/64” drill provided. Insert the #6 screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Be sure the screws will not interfere with the operation of the screen door.

Lay the screen material over the pet door

Step 10: Lay the screen material over the pet door. Pull the screen material taut. To hold the screen fabric around the pet door, insert the screen spline with a flat headed screwdriver or screen spline roller.

NOTE: Depending on the size of your screen door and the pet door you are installing, you may be able to use the excess screen spline that is still attached to your screen door. Simply turn a 90° corner with both sides of the spline and press them into the pet door spline frame track until they meet. If there is not enough excess spline from your screen door or if you do not wish to use it, simply insert the screen spline that came with your pet door.

When installing the spline in the corner of the pet door unit, it may be necessary to cut a small diagonal slit up into the screen material in order to relieve the tension on the screen fabric and allow it to be pulled down into the spline frame track. NOTE: Be careful not to cut too far into your screen fabric or you will have a hole at the corner of your pet door. See the picture to the left for a close up of a correctly installed pet door.

may be necessary to cut a small diagonal slit up

Step 11: Cut away any excess screen spline with a razor blade or scissors. Cut away the excess screen material with a razor blade being careful not to cut into the screen spline or the finish of the pet door.

Cut away any excess screen spline

Step 12: Reinstall the screen door or screen window into its original position.

Reinstall screen door or window to original position

Step 13: After reinstalling the screen into a vertical position, adjust the magnets in the pet door upward or downward if needed. The magnets are pressure fitted and can be adjusted downward by tapping lightly with the handle of your screwdriver. They can be adjusted upward by twisting a flat headed screwdriver below the magnet between the magnet and frame. Be sure to adjust the magnets upward from the inside of the door so as not to mar the outer door finish.

adjust the magnets in the pet door upward or downward if needed

Your installation is now completed. We hope you and your pet enjoy your HALE PET DOOR™ for years to come.

Click below to expand:

No, when installing a screen pet door, you should specify the corner in which the door will go when looking from the inside of your home to the outside. The hale pet door for screens can go in either the left or the right bottom corner.

This is only the pet door not a full patio screen door with pet door pre-installed. They do offer multiple installation options to fit all different types of screen doors.

The Hale Screen Mount Flap is made of Vinyl.

This is the best doggie door in screen door models because of how durable and sturdy it is. Also dog doors for screen doors large dogs can use will be more in general because they are larger.

The Screen Mount Stabilizer Bar Kit adds an additional support across the top of the pet door. This is necessary for larger, active dogs, as it will help the screen and dog door stay in good shape for as long as possible by providing extra support. This is recommended for all large dog screen door installations so it is included for Tall/Large and above.

For the Hale Door "Exterior" and "Interior" are referring to where the screening material is located in relation to the frame. If the screen material is installed closer to the inside of the frame, then it is considered "Interior". If the screen material is installed closer to the outer part of the frame, then it is considered "exterior". If your framing is thicker than ½” then this is very important because it will determine how the manufacturer will need to modify it so that it will install correctly.

There are many options for Hale Screen Doors because they are highly customizable, and they are very thorough about making sure they give you the right product. If the frame of the screen is over 1/2" in thickness, then it has to be modified.

Options that are brought up when selecting a Hale pet door screen mount:

1. 'Pet Door Installs in Which Lower Corner' - Specify whether you'll be installing the pet door in the lower left corner or the lower right corner of the screen when looking from the inside of the house to the outside. The terminology used by Hale is 'handing'. 'Handing Left' simply means that you'll be installing the pet door in the lower left-hand corner of the screen when looking from the inside of the house.

2. 'Customer Screen Frame Thickness Options' - The Hale pet screen door will be modified at the factory to fit varying thicknesses of your screen framing if necessary. Here are the various situations:

a. Your screen frame is thinner than 3/8". If you are considering a larger size or have a particularly vigorous dog, then your framing may not be sturdy enough and  you might want to reconsider making this purchase. This option is not offered for that reason.

b. If your screen frame thickness is up to 1/2" choose option 1. No further information is needed.

c. If your screen frame thickness is over 1/2", choose the second option if your screen mesh and spline are located on the outside side of the screen frame-- 'exterior'--and the third option if they are located on the inside, or 'interior', side. Your pet door must be installed on the same side as the screen mesh and spline  and the factory will ensure that the framing provided will accommodate that.

3. Hale Pet Door Screen Mount Stabilizer Bar Kit - A normal Hale pet screen door is supported down one side and across the bottom by your screen framing. The Screen Mount Stabilizer Bar Kit adds an additional support across the top of the pet door. We think this is a very good idea for larger sizes and more vigorous dogs. Available bar widths are 36" and 48". Choose the size at least as wide as your screen and then cut the bar with a hacksaw to fit. All fittings needed are included with the kit. To order this kit, please go to the Stabilizer Bar Kit page.

The spline is what attaches the screen material to the frame, it is a tube of rubber like material. If the screen material attaches to the side that is closer to the inside of your home, it is referred to as an interior spline. If the screen attaches to the side of the frame that is closest to the outside of your home, it is referred to as an exterior spline.

There are no closing covers offered for the Hale Screen Mount because there is a theory that a locking cover might encourage a pet to paw through the screen in effort to get through since it can’t see through the cover.

It can be installed on the bottom left or right corner of your door as long as the screen frame is 1/2" or less in thickness.

All hardware is included with the pet door.

Screen doors with doggy door installations tend to be on the easier end of the spectrum, depending on your handiness skills. You might be able to install the Hale Screen Mount on your own as screen mount door installations are on the easier side of the installation spectrum. Tools that you will want include: Screen spline roller (handy but not necessary), Drill, Phillips headed screwdriver, Razor blade, Flat headed screwdriver and Needle-nosed pliers. You do have to make sure that especially for pet screen doors for large dogs the framing is screwed in correctly so that it is firmly attached to the screen door.

Since the Hale Pet Door for screens attach directly to the frame of the screen, the strength of the screen material is not as critical as some other screen pet doors. Keep in mind that putting a pet door through your screen may encourage your pet to interact with the screen more, however, so sturdier material is still recommended.

You will want to measure your pets and determine how high off the ground the pet door will be installed. You want the top of the flap to be at least 1 inch above the tallest point of the dog or cat's back, and the flap needs to be wide enough that they can comfortably walk through. The bottom of the flap should also be low enough to the ground that your pet doesn't have difficulty stepping over it. In general customer purchasing the screen mounted pet doors have to go a little taller than normal on the flap height because the framing on the pet door is much lower to the ground then on a regular door mount installation.

The fuzzy weather stripping around the Hale flap is great for keeping out bugs! It helps to fill any gaps around the edges of the flap between the magnets.

Yes, this is one of the best for that application and the one that we highly recommend for screen enclosure dog door installations. If you do you would need to make sure to choose the custom cut over 1/2" option.

No this is only the pet door so you would need to purchase the screen door locally.

The Hale Pet Doors for Screens come in a variety of sizes up to 15 1/2" wide by 27 1/2" tall.
