  • Beats the heck out my screen review by Mitchell
    5 3 Beats the heck out my screen

    I don't know if ordering another model would have done the trick, but my dog blasts through this door at the speed of light and because it is only supported on 2 sides, the screen is taking a beating. I don't know if I will install it into the new screen unless I can figure out some way to support it better.

  • ok, but not quite perfect review by kitkat
    5 3 ok, but not quite perfect

    This is a great idea, but mine keeps falling apart? for those of you that put screwss in, what type? and didn't it break the plastic frame? maybe if I superglued it together? if it just stayed clipped together it would be great!

  • 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 !!

  • pet door review by stacy
    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 Pet Door

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 plastic.

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 remains 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 close 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.
