The Ideal Screen Fit Pet Door for cats is designed to fit into windows and screen doors. Don’t compromise the fresh air because you’re worried about bugs entering the house. Instead of keeping your window or screen door open, this cat door allows you to use your screen whenever you please, as it installs straight into the screen itself. This is the best screen door for cats because the flap is clear, ABS plastic instead of screen material, preventing your cat from clawing and tearing the screen flap material common among other pet doors for screens.



  • Sturdy, plastic frame comes in grey 
  • Clear, ABS plastic flap prevents clawing and is easy for cats to see through and use
  • Magnetic closure keeps bugs out and helps with wind resistance
  • 2-way locking system allows you to lock the flap when necessary
  • Installs in window, sliding door, and storm door screens
  • Available in one size (8 ¾” width x 10 ¼” height)



  • Easy installation
  • Designed for cats; works for small dogs as well
  • Cats no longer claw the screen to be let out
  • Kitties can come in and out as they please
  • Allows you to have the screen door open but the sliding door closed
  • Avoid cutting holes in a door/wall

  • easy installation review by Hanna
    5 5 easy installation

    The installation was super easy in my window screen. My cats took a bit to learn how to use this but it has been working out well so far!

  • Works for my cats review by Oliver
    5 4 Works for my cats

    So far so good - the frame is plastic, so it's not as sturdy as some other aluminum doors, but my cats aren't too rowdy, so it's fine for now. Easy to install as well!

  • Ok for cats and small dogs review by Kiderick
    5 4 Ok for cats and small dogs

    This pet door is easy to install in a screen. Looks like it will hold up well for my small gentle dog. Probably ok for cats too. I wouldn't recommend for hyper of larger dogs...don't think it would hold up well with very active dogs.

    It installs super easy, but doesn't look like it will hold up to being dog tested.

  • Easy to Intall review by Mars
    5 4 Easy to Intall

    The cat door easily installs into your existing screen. It's installed in and supported by the screen so small, calm dogs might be able to use it. I like that the door itself is clear plastic instead of screen for a better quality finish. If your cats are more rowdy, I would suggest replacing your existing screen with pet resistant screen.

  • love this review by noname
    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 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 took about a week for them to feel fully comfortable using it. They love it now,

  • Don't buy review by blb
    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

  • glad we bought it review by Anniepoo
    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.

  • works great review by derekz56
    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.

Ideal Screen-Fit Cat Door Installation Instructions

install options for screen fit ideal pet door

ideal pet door for screens

Step 1: Select a screen for installation and remove the window or door screen from its frame.

Step 2: Lay the exterior side of the screen down on a flat, hard surface. Make sure the surface beneath the screen is protected from damage that could be caused by a utility knife.

Step 3: Measure your pet from the floor to the top of their shoulder. The top of the frame should be installed 2” above your pet's shoulders. It is also recommended you install the door at least 2” away from the frame to protect the door.

Step 4: Put the outside of the frame, with the magnet facing the bottom of the door, under the screen. Make sure the arrows at the top of the frame are pointing up. Align the bottom and side edges with the outside of the frame. Use a sharp utility knife to cut horizontal slits in the screen at both top hinge groove locations (Fig. 1).

Step 5: Place the flap assembly in the outside frame with the slide locks facing you. Do this by aligning both hinge posts at the top of the flap assembly with both hinge groove locations at the top of the frame. After, place the inside frame on top of the outside frame and align the cavities and posts (Fig. 2). Once aligned, use a mallet to carefully tap the frame together all around, sealing all gaps between the frames. This secures the flap assembly in place and holds the frames to the screen.

Step 6: Hold the flap up and cut the screen around the inner portion of the door with a sharp utility knife (Fig. 3). Trim away any excess screen from the inside, as it prevents the flap assembly from swinging freely (Fig. 4).

Step 7: Reinstall the screen panel into window or door frame.
