Is your pet flap in need of a replacement? Avoid replacing your entire pet door with the Ruff Weather dog door replacement flaps. The Ideal “Ruff Weather” and “Protector” Pet Doors fit both of these models, restoring your pet door to good as new! These are made of clear, flexible vinyl for the ultimate ease of use for your pet. The bottom of the flap contains a magnetic bar to help seal it when it is not in use. The flap size is engraved into the flap right above it. All flaps are sold individually, so if you need to replace both flaps for your Ruff Weather pet door, you’ll need to purchase two.


Please Note: Your extra large flap may have the dimensions of 10 ½" x 17" embossed on the flap. However, the manufacturer has guaranteed that this 9 ¾” x 17” replacement flap will work, regardless of what dimensions are marked on the flap.

  • Ruff Weather dog doors are great! review by Charles
    5 5 Ruff Weather dog doors are great!

    We have been using the Ruff Weather dog door for over 11 years and it works great. There has only been one time that the wind blew hard enough to make the doors flap, and that was when there was a tornado in the area. We love it.

    5 5 Exactly what I needed, easy to install

    If I would have known it was this easy to replace the existing worn flaps I currently had I would have done this months ago. My flaps were packed really well and I got them quickly after placing my order. They came with instructions so I had no problem replacing my old worn ones with what Pet Doors sent me. I highly recommend this company for all your dog door parts.

  • price plus it's too short review by ROBERTA
    5 3 price plus it's too short

    This product is outrageously expensive, so much so that to replace both flaps at the same time, as recommended, would break the bank. But the product is excellent in it's durability. HOWEVER, my extra large flap is 1/4" too short! I even trimmed the bottom of the holes on top, into which the screws go, to make it longer. But alas, I couldn't trim enough to make a difference. I now have to find something to put on the bottom where the flap swings to keep out the cold in winter and stifling Tucson heat in the summer. I haven't yet figured out what that is going to be.

  • Very high quality product review by Vince
    5 5 Very high quality product

    This is no cheap door flap. This is rugged, yet pliable enough to allow our three cats to comfortably come and go as they please-and cats like to do that! The flaps clean up with a damp cloth or paper towel to like-new condition. It's a bit pricey, perhaps, but in the long run, you get what you pay for. This is a quality product.

    Purchased a pair of large Ruff Weather flaps a few years ago to have on hand when needed. Recently installed them on the pet door and they are about 3/8 inch short. Will not make that mistake again. Will only order from the company's web site when I actually need them.

  • not as good as original review by Peg
    5 2 not as good as original

    I received and replaced however, the size of Extra Large flaps do not fit. They are about a 1/2 inch too short and doesn't hit the magnet on bottom. they are also slightly not wide enough. The "weather" still gets in. I destroyed the boxes they came in and threw them away thinking they were ok so I didn't return them.

    (Ed note: It sounds like the flap required might have been a different model of Ideal Pet Door.)

  • super large flap review by vinnie
    5 5 super large flap

    I ordered a super large flap to accommodate putting a dog door into my screen security door. After measuring , cutting and making a metal frame for the door, we fastened the super large flap onto the top of the metal frame. Now for the spring and winter months in nevada, I can leave the screen door open for fresh air and my Old English sheepdog can come and go. When the HOT summer begins, we swing the security door out of the way and our dog has the original double flap ruff weather dog door that is built into our interior door. Best of both worlds. Thanks, Nice heavy flaps

  • Great Fit; Too Expensive review by Bill
    5 2 Great Fit; Too Expensive

    The replacement flap is easy to install, but the price with added shipping and handling for a single flap is very expensive. I think a single flap (my door takes two) totaled $65.00. That's too much. I'm looking for a cheaper alternative.

  • Perfect door review by razzle
    5 5 Perfect door

    these flaps hold their own but eventually, like all things, wear out, with 3 dogs constantly going in and out all day every day these flaps are super durable and have lasted more than a year or two
    the flaps wear out at the screw holes eventually, but are well with worth the money for the time it takes them to wear out

  • Easy to install review by Kassi & Vivi
    5 4 Easy to install

    I have had my Ruff Weather pet door for 5 years and the original flaps were starting to wear. Ordered the new ones which were very easy to install. I do wish that there were not clear though. They also seem to be a little shorter than the originals and not as thick. My problem is that the magnetic strips on the bottom have broken and magnets are now gone so there is nothing for the flaps to hold on to. I looked through your products and could not find any replacements, so what do you suggest??? I need to do something soon to keep bugs and little critters out!! Please help!

  • Great product with one problem (Husky) review by Fred (and "Snow" an all white male husky puppy)
    5 5 Great product with one problem (Husky)

    I bought a replacement door (bought two, in fact, [planning ahead]) from you several months ago after "Snow," the 10- month-old Husky pulled one of mine totally off. I replaced the broken one with a new one and he pulled that one off, too. (Breaks them near the top). Never a glutton for punishment, I did not replace it with my final one, instead electing to wait until he was two-years-old and "grownup." Both times he has pulled the outer door off). Not to be outsmarted by a mere human, over the next couple of weeks, he tore out the magnetic srtip in the bottom, followed a day later by the magnetic strip for the inner door. Not content, he removed all four grey fussy strips that line both sidews of both doors. Then he ate the plastic ribs that form the edges for the fuzzzies. Your product is great. My puppy is a terror. LOL

    I purchased these replacement flaps for a door that I've had for over ten years. I was so pleased at how easy it was to replace them--it just took a few minutes and they look and work great! My only wish is that I'd done it sooner!

  • A good product review by junemc
    5 4 A good product

    My only reservation is with the warranty. My flaps on the first door simply wore out at the top. But in all fairness they received quite a work out. These doors are definitely the best I've found and the double flap certainly helps keep out cold wind. I'm in OK and we have lots of wind. The flaps are easy to replace too. That's a plus. I've had other doors that you just scrapped the whole thing and started over. Not so with this door. The frame is still very much intact. Yes, I would recommend this product.

  • Very good quality. review by Rebelle
    5 5 Very good quality.

    These were not made for my pet safe doors, but pet safe for some reason does not offer clear doors. With 2 large dogs and 6 cats my cats love playing door guard just waiting for the dogs noses to come through for a good swat. This way the dogs know when the cats are waiting for them and can bark for us to intervene. I just made sure the flaps were wide enough and then I simply drilled new, higher holes to accommodate the longer length. It was simple and know one will ever notice but me.

    5 5 Superb insulating pet door flaps

    We needed to replace our previous Ruff Weather door flaps and it was SO EASY to take the old torn ones off and replace them with the two new insulating flaps. Our two large dogs and two cats can easily navigate through the door flaps and the flaps keep the blasting cold Arctic air from seeping into the house!

    5 4 Our door had screws on inside, but still worked great

    Our older door had screws on the inside, not as shown in the video. Once we found the screws, the flaps installed correctly, and fit great. They are not as heavy as the old ones, so we will see how they hold up in the wind. was great to work with.

    Only 4 stars because we are not sure that they are as heavy, but 5 star service and correct fit.

    5 5 Worked great

    We have had a Ruff Weather Pet door for about ten years and the flaps and weather-stripping were a bit, well...weathered. Ordering replacements was easy and they arrived promptly without any difficlty. I would encourage two people be available for the install as you need just one more set of hands to hold everything in place as you replace the screws while standing on your head. Overall, I am very pleased.

Ruff Weather and Protector Series Flap Installation Instructions

Click below to expand:

Before ordering, check the logo or writing on your flap (if any). Ideal Pet Products will have their logo, name, and sometimes the model of the door in the center of opening or on the pet door frame at the bottom. If not you can double check if the size is embossed on the bottom near the magnet bar on either side.

The ruff weather dog door replacement parts are not interchangeable with other brands or models, so you will need to order the same kind of flap replacement or part replacement.

Yes! We carry a clear flexible version, allowing you and your pet visibility.

We suggest uninstalling the vinyl so you can see the size in the top right corner. This will help you order the correct size. They also have the size of the flap embossed on the lower corners of the flap right above the magnet bar.

No! You need only to unscrew the bar that holds the flap. Your entire outer frame does not need to be removed. Once the bar is removed, you can then discard your old flap, and insert the new one. A screwdriver is the only tool you need.

Ruff weather replacement door flaps for the super large are 15"w x 23 1/2"h.

Unfortunately, we do not carry the locking cover as a separate purchase. The ruff weather cover needs to be purchased from the manufacturer.

This is another item we do not carry. Again, please check with the manufacturer for this part.

A flap's life depends on the usage and weather exposure. These are some of the more durable vinyl flaps so its life tends to last longer. In the event your flap gets dirty, use a clean rag with fresh water.

The ruff weather replacement doors are not made to add additional magnets. There are two flaps for increased weather resistance, serving the same purpose as additional magnets.

They changed what was embossed on the flap, so the 9 3/4 by 17 would be the ruff weather replacement pars you need.

If this is the case, please contact us so we can arrange a return and get you the correct one. Please be aware this item has a 30 day return policy.

You can measure the existing opening (width and height) and refer to the size chart for the corresponding size.

You can type "ruff weather" in the Search field above for a complete list of parts we carry. They are the Pile Weather Strip, Frame Gasket, Wall Installation Kit and Replacement Flaps.
