This door is a “snap” to assemble and is equipped with a magnetic flap closure and contains “dual slide locks” to keep your pet in or out.
1. Remove screen frame from a window or screen door to install your Screen Fit Pet Door.
2. Lay your outside screen frame side down on a flat surface.
3. It is recommended that you insert your Screen-Fit Pet Door at least 2” from the bottom and side of your window or screen door frame.
4. Place the outside frame (with magnet at the bottom) under screen, making sure the arrows on the top of frame are pointing in the “up” direction.
5. Align the exterior frame evenly to the bottom and side of your window or screen door frame.
6. With a sharp blade, make small cuts in the screen at the two top hinge grooves.
7. Position flap assembly (with the slide locks facing towards you) into the outside frame by aligning the flap with the top hinge location grooves at the top of the frame.
8. With the flap assembly in place, position interior frame over the exterior frame, and align the posts and cavities.
9. When properly aligned, use a mallet to tap the frames together, making sure there is no gap or spaces between the inside and out. This will hold the inside flap assembly in position and secure the frames to the screen.
Note: Do not cut the clear plastic on the inside flap assembly.
10. Lift the flap assembly with a sharp blade. Cut the screen around the inner portion of the frame along all four sides to make the flap opening.
11. Trim excess screen fragments using a sharp blade, allowing the flap to swing freely.
12. You can now replace screen frame into window or screen frame.
Q: What is the frame made of?
A: It is a fairly durable plasic.
Q: What is the flap made of?
A: It is a thin sheet of clear plastic.
Q: Do I have to attach this to the frame?
A: No, this installs directly through the screen material.
Q: Would this door be good for active pets?
A: Since it is only held in place by the screen it is not as durable as the type that install by screwing onto the frame. That is why we recommend that this be used for smaller less active dogs or cats.
Q: What colors does it come in?
A: It only comes in a light grey, but the plastic is paintable.
Q: Could this be installed through a thin metal plate?
A: Since this is meant to be installed only through screen, it wouldn't work if you tried to install it through other materials.
Q: Do I need to have special screen?
A: It is pretty light weight, so it would be fine installing on virtually any type of screen. However, if you have the thicker pet screen you would need to makes sure that you were able to get the pins all the way through so that is remaines attached.
Q: What tools do I need to install it?
A: You will need a sharp knife to be able to cut the screen and a rubber mallet to tap the frames together.
Q: How do I lock it?
A: At the bottom of the flap in each corner there are small pins that you slide back and forth to cose it off.
Q: Can bugs get in?
A: The gap around the frame and the flap is very small, it would be tough for bugs to get through.
