*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

Adjustment Ranges:  

Up to 82"
Over 82" to 96" (Additional Cost)

You can estimate the panel width by adding 4" to your desired flap width.

1 Step Over is the height of the flap above the base of the pet door. We suggest that flap height + 'step over'
should about equal pet shoulder height. 
These dimensions are approximate within 1/2".
2 The overall width is equal to flap width plus 4".

The Hale "Standard" Patio Pet Door for Sliding Glass Doors

Hale is patterned after Pet-Eze Deluxe 81

The first really high quality patio panel pet door on the market was released by the Pet Eze company in the 1970's. This door, eventually called the 'Deluxe 81', required tools including a hacksaw for installation, but was a great product. Hale Pet Doors (formerly Hale Security Pet Doors) has essentially copied the Deluxe 81 in many respects but added their own flap assembly and locking cover in creating their Standard Patio Pet Door.

Installation (see detailed instruction tab)

Installation requires cutting the top of the panel and an 'adapter channel' with a hacksaw. Then the panel is fastened into the track with sheet metal screws. This 'semi-permanent' installation is required because the built-in locking mechanism mates to the 'adapter channel' that mounts to the edge of the pet door with sheet metal screws. This 'adapter channel', which also must be shortened with a hacksaw to fit, performs two functions. First, it provides something for the lock to mate to. Second, it provides a very good, air-tight seal down the full length of the sliding glass door.

Great "King Starboard" locking cover

King Starboard® is used in marine applications as well as security and other industrial applications and is designed to stand up to the harshest weather conditions. It is environmentally stabilized for harsh sun and will not rot, swell, splinter or de-laminate when exposed to humidity or water. Its durable matte-textured surface on both sides is easy to clean and never needs refinishing. It has even passed the Federal Motor Vehicle Standard 302 fire test required for use in motor vehicles, including motor homes. This security cover will be included in a color designed to match the frame color you have chosen for your pet door.

High performance flap assembly

Most exciting, Hale has included a double flap for improved insulation value. This flap assembly consists of two flaps, both fully weather stripped as in the other Hale pet doors, and both with magnets to stand up against wind. The dead air-space between the two flaps provides for better insulation than a single flap alone.  The design of the flaps on the Hale Pet Doors for Sliding Glass Doors allows extra large and small pets share the same doors easily. 

We need two bits of information from you to order this Hale patio panel

This information is requested by the shopping cart:

  • Carefully measure your track height. Hale will build the panel to any height (that's why it takes so long) but they need a correct measurement to begin with.
  • Also, be sure you've indicated which direction your sliding door closes when on the inside looking out. Hale will mount the panel lock for you and it is not reversible.

Return Policy

Because these pet doors are built custom to your specification, returns will be allowed a 50% credit toward the purchase of a different Hale Pet Door.

There are quite a few details that might be important for you to think about in purchasing any panel pet door

  • Begin with key points to get a quick overview of the most important issues.
  • Then study the comparison chart and read the information on the patio panel FAQ page which cover the fine points of patio pet doors.
  • All Hale pet doors come standard with "polar" flaps--a vinyl that is more flexible in cold weather than "regular" vinyl.
  • Very flexible 'training' flaps may be ordered for pets who are initially resistant to pushing through the regular flaps.
  • Important: Hale 'Standard' panels are not recommended for Anderson or Pella brand sliding glass doors.


Allow about three weeks for shipping from the factory plus 1-5 days transit time to you (Ground Delivery Only).

  • 10/10 review by Harmony
    5 5 10/10

    This door works great for my purposes. I have a mastiff and he wouldn't fit in anything other than the giant size. It was a pretty serious install so I was glad that we had somebody to do the install, but I love that it matches up with the locks in the house. Couldn't be happier.

  • Quality of manufacture is good but engineering and installations instructions are poor review by George
    5 2 Quality of manufacture is good but engineering and installations instructions are poor

    We received the door in a reasonable time and i hired a handyman to help me install it. The first problem arose when we cut the door based on the instructions. The door did not have sufficient bend to be able to pop it in to the rails as instructed. We finally cut the door down some more to fit the rails but it ended up needing shims on the bottom to have it fit sufficiently well to be able to drill it in to place. The next challenge was that the door/latch on insert did not fit the sliding glass door to make a close fit. We called the phone number for help from the company and were finally told that it was poorly manufatured and we should send the door back. Instead, we removed the handled, re-drilled the fittings and finally to the door to work. The dog loves it but the security provided is not what i expected, especially at these prices.

  • Awesome door review by Jeremy L
    5 4 Awesome door

    Product works great just as I was hoping the steep price tag would correlate to. Looks/feels high quality and sturdy. Dogs had no problem going through the door at all. Wasn't really pertinent to my situation, but Customer Service did tell me that this product is NOT compatible with Anderson or Pella products. So just an FYI if you have one of those models, go for the Hale OMNI Panel instead is what they said.

  • Good Solution for Large Dogs review by Nial
    5 4 Good Solution for Large Dogs

    High quality panel and flap. It had the "Giant" size I needed for my large dogs which other manufacturers don't offer. It does take a person with some skills or a handyman to install because there is some metal cutting and screwing involved.

  • Would buy again review by dogmom
    5 5 Would buy again

    Allows me the freedom of leaving home for hours knowing that Indie will be comfortable...and most people don't even notice the flap in our sliding patio doors.

  • Ok... But needed major retrofitting review by Babs
    5 3 Ok... But needed major retrofitting

    I was excited to purchase this door because I have two giant Great Danes who need a good door... Have had the bifold doors in solid wood doors for years and hoped this would be as good... But what happened was we needed a door company to come out and fit it properly in the opening and put proper wether strip in place. After Two months I think we got it! Wish it was available in two sided different colors... Ie. bronze one one side and white on the other...

INSTALLING the Hale "Standard" Patio Pet Door for Sliding Glass Doors

Read Complete Instructions before Beginning

What you will need:

    • Tape measure
    • Hack-saw
    • Electric Drill
    • 1/64" drill bit (Included)
    • #2 Phillips head screwdriver
    • #6 sheet metal screws (Included)

Parts lists:

  • Insert panel unit
  • Lock strip
  • Lock unit
  • Vinyl draftstopper
  • Drill bit
  • Screws

1. Clean the glass in your patio door.

Clean the glass overlap before you install.  After installation, you'll have to remove the patio panel to get at that glass for cleaning.

2. Decide if you want your insert panel on the sliding side or the stationary side of your sliding glass door.

It's easier to install on the sliding glass door side, but you may have to move alarm sensors if present. Installing on the stationary side will also allow you to continue to use a keyed lock as you exit the house through your sliding glass door. 

3. Only if you are installing on the stationary side

You'll need to figure out how to unfasten the sliding glass door as they are not all held in place the same way.  Look for securing screws or brackets.  It's also possible that silicone caulking has been used to improve the seal.

4. Measure the door frame height inside the track very top to very bottom.

5. Mark the side rails of your insert panel and cut them to length using a jig saw with a metal-cutting blade. A hacksaw will work.  Be sure to leave clearance so the panel can clear the rail wall and get into the track.

6. Place the panel into the track and see if it fits.

If installing on the stationary side, close the stationary panel up against the pet door and check for air gaps. If installing on the sliding glass door side, close the slider up tight against the pet door panel and again check for air gaps. Any air gaps between the edge of the sliding glass door and the pet panel will be covered when the lock strip is installed.

If you see any air gaps you can close them by leaning the insert panel one way or the other. Alternatively, your sliding glass door probably has an adjustment on the leading wheel and by adjusting that wheel you can tilt the sliding door to better fit against the pet panel.

If necessary,  apply foam-type weather strip (available at a hardware store) to the side rail of your pet door panel.

7. The insert panel should be held tightly against the door jamb lip to allow you to drill holes and screw the pet panel in place

If there is not enough of a lip to drill through, the pet panel can be fastened in place with silicone caulk.

The side rails of your pet panel are notched at the bottom so it can straddle the wheel track in the door jamb, but it does not have to do so! You might need to set the pet panel on top of the wheel track in order to pull it tight enough to fasten it to the jamb lip.

8. Once you are satisfied with the placement of your insert panel, it is time to screw it into place.

Use #6 sheet metal screws. Do not place the screws close to the glass. If a screw hits the pet door glass or the sliding glass door glass it will break. glass

9. If you are installing on the stationary side skip this step

The lock strip will be screwed to the leading edge of your slider. Be very careful installing the screws. If a screw hits glass the glass will break. The latch bar which mates to the lock on the pet panel must face the inside of the house.

11. Apply the vinyl weather strip (included) to the back edge of the slider or the front edge of the stationary panel.

This will eliminate any gaps created by overlapping glass.

You would measure from the deepest part in the bottom track to the top track. Do not measure up inside the top track or the door will not fit correctly, even though this is the full sliding pet door they account for the wiggle room in the top track.

Yes, the panel comes with a locking mechanism that can be attached to your slider. The mechanism provided to lock your sliding glass door to the panel can be installed on the left or right depending on how your slider is configured. It consists of a lock mounted on the doggy door and a bracket mounted on the sliding glass door with sheet metal screws. With this the dog door would have to be semi-permanently installed. Alternatively, you can purchase a Charley Bar for added security.

There is a closing cover that is included with the pet door.

Yes, it is actually the door that we recommend for that particular situation.

This door has dual pane glass and double flaps so it does insulate very well and it good for more extreme climates.

Yes, they are a clear flexible material with magnets and weather stripping round them

This has to be semi-permanently installed, so it is harder than most other doors. I would suggest taking a look at the installation instructions on the page and see it that is something that you are handy enough to do.

They are custom, so three weeks to ship and then 1-5 business days shipping time depending on where you are located.

No, you can get the Endura Flap Thermo Panel or the Custom Ideal Fast Fit for a sliding glass door taller than 96"

This needs to be done while you are on the inside of the house looking out. You do need to specify whether your slider closes to the left or to the right so that they can mount the lock correctly.

Yes, you can take off a flap for training if you find that your pet is having a hard time going through both.
