Two-Piece "Modular" Pet Door for Patios

This door solves a problem with regular patio pet door panels: They are very tall and the boxes are awkward to carry. The idea is simple: They ship in two pieces that are assembled together into a regular height patio panel pet door.

The resulting savings in shipping costs is most apparent when shipping internationally. For domestic shipping it is more cost-effective to purchase the Ideal Fast Fit.

The Ideal Modular Pet Patio Door is very similar in construction to the Ideal "Fast Fit" patio pet door: Spring-loaded height adjustment with locking thumb screws, single pane tempered glass, vinyl flap inside a plastic frame.

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.

Currently, only one height adjustment range is offered: 77 5/8" - 80 3/8". So, as always, it's very important to measure your track height to be sure that this panel is going to fit. Remember that if you're track height is close to the bottom end of the range, you may have a problem as the pet panel needs to get even shorter to get over the track wall and into the track. There's more information about this at a note of caution on our patio panel FAQ page.

Two frame color finishes are offered: Satin (brushed aluminum) and white. If you have bronze, black or some other color, we'd suggest that the white finish is probably easier to repaint.

  • Or any enclosed space and saveI highly recommend this device. review by Hammer
    5 5 Or any enclosed space and saveI highly recommend this device.

    We have been using one of these for almost 2 years. It allows our two cats to go freely from our home onto our lanai and then allows us to shut things down for the night or wheneverwe want them to stay inside such as if our landscaping or grass is being sprayed with chemicals. I found the unit to be very well constructed and it's measurements to be accurate. I wouldn't be too concerned about trying to secure a sliding door as any burglar worth their salt can pop a sliding door out of its track in two minutes. You should also look at how your current door or doors are aligned since this does require one door to be essentially open all the time it may not allow your other door to open as far as it used to. It wasn't a problem for us but it may be if you need the entire width that you used to have. Again this depends on if you have a 3 foot or 4 foot door also. If you really feel that you need some type of "security" device for the door you can use most any of the devices that are made for sliding doors. I would also not suggest using the foam tape that they give you to fill the gap between the two sliding doors. Are you home and rubber seals that are attached to the door itself are of a higher enough quality that they will mold to most any track and appear to be very durable as I see no degradation after two years of use. Remember, this will be just like having one of your doors partway open all the time and because of that the two doors will overlap approximately 10 to 12 inches and there will be a space in between where air can freely move in and out. Rather than use the the thin foam tape that they gave us we simply purchased a link of the black pipe insulation foam that you'll find at any home Center. If you slice that foam in half you will find that it slides easily into an opening and can be removed easily but seals perfectly. We think this was the best solution for us but if you are opening your doors constantly do you from two will have to be removed and replaced after each opening. While this takes approximately 20 seconds some people may find that an irritation. I purchased an extra flap because I didn't know how long they would last. But after two years our original flap shows no ware other than the normal oil's that your cat will put on the flap when they push it open. Simple cleaning every couple of weeks will take care of that. If you are using this because your cat litter pan smells bad and you're going to stick it out in some location where you cat has to go there to use the cat pan, I'd suggest you do a better job of keeping the cat pan clean instead of this door. This door should be used to give cats freedom to go onto the porch or lanai Or any enclosed space and save you the trouble of having to go to the door every time they want to go out or come in. I highly recommend this device.

    I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase my only complaint is that my slider does not lock into the pet door. Which leaves me vulnerable to burglars. It would be nice if you fixed this.

  • Ideal Modular Pet Patio Door is Ideal for Our Purposes review by Tomasz
    5 5 Ideal Modular Pet Patio Door is Ideal for Our Purposes

    Glad I found this product. It's great. We live on the 4th floor of a small apartment and have a covered patio. We wanted to put the cat's litter on the patio so we don't have to live with the smell. For awhile, we just kept our patio door open a few inches, then it became cold. The Ideal Modular Door was perfect and exactly as advertised. I followed the instructional video and set it up in about 15 minutes. The cat now goes in and out by herself and our place is stink free.

    Be sure you measure the inside of the track. That is important. This model does not have a lock but we aren't too concerned about a break in via our patio. If I were in a house, I'd have some concerns, even with a lock, though I think some models sold are semi-permanent. The modular doors would be easy enough to bypass. If the door were breached by a burglar they might be able to squeeze through the opening if they were a small-framed person.

    That said, this is a great product for the price.

    ed. note. The Modular pet door should have come with an Ideal dead bolt lock. A Charley Bar is another great solution to locking the sliding glass door.

No, there is only one height adjustment. They do make another model, the Ideal Fast Fit, that has more track height options.

It is meant to be more of a DIY temporary installation, check out the videos tab for a preview.

It really is more for 3 season moderate climates.

It is a clear flexible vinyl.

Yes, the replacements are available here.

Aluminum

You would need to measure from the deepest part inside the bottom track up into the deepest part of the top tack.

You would not be able to use your existing lock, but they do include a pin type lock.

The flap is easier to push open, however the step over might be a bit tall for smaller pets to use if you go with the Extra Large.

Yes, the flap and frame assembly can be found here.
