Ideal Screen-Fit Cat Door

This cat door consists of a strong, clear ABS plastic flap embedded in a plastic frame. 

What strikes us as interesting about this flap is that it isn't screen. The problem with screen is that we think a scratching cat trying to get in when it's locked is likely to tear screen.  If this ABS plastic is strong enough, however, it might prevent that problem.  We're looking forward to the first customer review to address this point.

Installation is easy; you only need a sharp knife or box cutter to cut the screen using the frame as a template. The cat door then snaps together.  The instructions clearly state that it must not be installed lower than 3" above the bottom of the screen frame. This is because the door needs a bit of lag in the screen to serve as a sort of shock absorber. If the cat door is installed in the tighter part of the screen that is close to the frame, it will be easier for the cat to tear the screen while travelling through the cat door.

Support is from the screen only so it matters what kind of screen you've got.  A genteel cat combined with strong, wire screen would be the best combination.  Speaking of size, the box claims 9 3/4" x 10 1/2" flap dimension and suitable for cats to 20 lbs.  We measure 8 3/4" x 10 1/4" but, either way, the opening is plenty big for even the biggest cat.

    5 5 love this

    We use these in the bottom aluminum panel in our screen room instead of the screen. 5 cats come and go as they please, for years now. The small locks do not hold when they really want to go thru so we cut some thin board material and velcroed it to the inside to lock them securely. We had an aggressive Pitbull try to scratch thru the panel and he did some damage but it did not break. excellent product !!

    5 4 pet door

    This door is awesome for our cats. i didn't give it 5 stars only because we had a baby racoon follow our kitties in one evening.it didn't want it's new friends to go! This door has made our lives alot easier. we no longer have to let them in or out every 10 minutes.it took about a week for them to feel fully comfortable using it. They love it now,

    5 1 Don't buy

    I bought one for my two doxies. Installation was easy. Unfortunately that is the only good thing I have to say. the door fell off after a few times going thru it. The force of the dogs pushing on the flap just tears the screen on your door. I have to find a replacement and also will have to replace my screen. It seemed like a great option but it is not a good buy

    5 5 glad we bought it

    This was a purchase well worth the money for us. Easy to install and the cats got used to it pretty quickly. We had been leaving the screen door open just wide enough for them to go in and out but flies were coming in. This was the perfect solution.

    5 5 works great

    Bought this so are cats could go in and out on their own most of theyear. Works great for this, cats love it and we are not always having to open the door for them. the only downside is we are all going to have to relearn the old ways if it ever rains here in California.

  • Works great review by Tracy

    5 5 Works great

    I bought this door several years ago and have since purchased 3 more. It's easy to install, works well for my 20 lb dachshund. We have pella doors with the screen inside and the glass door outside. We leave the sliding glass door open about 1 ft so our dog can run in and out throughout the day (while we're home, of course). It is a great solution for us. I think the door has held up well. Usually lasts a couple years and the begins to tear the screen surrounding the door. This must be due to the pressure placed on the screen when our dog comes barreling into the house and ever so slightly hits the frame. We are so happy to have the doggie door for her that we don't mind replacing it every now and then. Great product!!

  • Very flimsy review by Doxie Lover

    5 1 Very flimsy

    Very flimsy, and not worth the time to install. The frame was the plastic that breaks very easy. I was surprised, this company would even stock such in item. The clear part was more like cellophane over a package. Not impressed, sent it back, and bought the very sturdy custom door, spendy, but will last forever.

  • A piece of crap... review by Rudy

    5 1 A piece of crap...

    Some time ago, I installed this door in my patio screen for use of my 15 pound Shih Tzu. At first, I was well satisfied - it installed easily and my dog took to it instantly. We both enjoyed the freedom of his coming and going at will.
    Unfortunately, it wasn't long before the flap fell apart. The flap frame seperated, scattering parts and loosing the magnetic insert that keeps the flap closed. I have attempted to press it back together several times, all to no avail. Maybe I can be glue it together, but then it will be impossible to replace the clear plastic insert. And then there is the problem of the wind making the flap swing to an fro.

    Ed. Note. If this customer will contact our customer service (we cannot identify the source of these reviews), we will be glad to assist in a warranty claim.
