The Ideal VIP 150 Large Cat Patio Door is an energy efficient, vinyl-framed panel designed specifically for vinyl sliding glass doors. Pre-installed with a large, 7 ½” x 10 ½” flap, even the biggest of kitties are able to easily fit through this hefty cat door!

    • 76 ¾” ‒ 78 ½” 
    • 92 ¾” ‒ 94 ½”
    • A height extension piece is available to add 2” to either of the listed height ranges. Only purchase one to ensure that stability is not compromised
  • Fits tracks 1 ½” ‒ 1 ¾” wide
  • Designed for severe, four-season climates
  • Engineered with dual-pane, Low-E glass for improved insulation value
  • Vinyl framing has a higher insulation value than traditional aluminum frames
  • Utilizes original sliding glass door lock (see installation instructions to confirm that your sliding glass door lock will work with the locking catches)
  • Clear, rigid flap is lined with brush weather stripping
  • Draft stopper included to seal any gaps



  • Energy efficient door prevents heating and cooling loss
  • Accommodates cats of all sizes and small dogs
  • Vinyl frame matches the design of your original sliding glass door frame. Ideal carries other panels for vinyl sliding glass doors, and Endura Flap makes this sliding glass dog door.

  • Pets have the freedom to access the outdoors when they please

  • Locks with my existing door review by Catherine
    5 5 Locks with my existing door

    The best thing I like about this panel is that it locks with my sliding glass door, so I didn't have to buy or install any additional locks. The installation was a bit advanced for me, but my contractor did it with no issues. Cat loves it, we love it - all good.

  • Great cat door, matched my patio door exactly review by Patrick
    5 5 Great cat door, matched my patio door exactly

    This is a great product. I've had it for a couple years and have had no major complaints. It is currently enduring two cats, twin 2-year olds, and a 2nd grader.

  • Great product. Best I've found review by mpapalia
    5 5 Great product. Best I've found

    I have a 15 lbs dog and used to leave the back door cracked to allow her in/out access (which is not ideal for many reasons). I did a good amount of research on companies and options. I've had this door for 2 years and am very happy with the quality, reliability, security, and look. I couldn't live without it--very glad I found it!

  • Installation Difficult review by RJ
    5 3 Installation Difficult

    OK, I consider myself about an 8/10 on home projects. The installation instructions would benefit from a link to an on-line video or a dvd shipped w/the door. There isn't enough detail. For instance, there is a mention of a critical 5/16 min. clearance during the installtion of the H channel. The close up doesn't show enough detail. I eventually figured it out, but the VIP door install took me about 3 hours, and I haven't installed the door seal extension yet, as the instructions aren't very clear on exaclty where it needs to be installed. I will try to call on that this week. Again, a video would really help. Finally, we're missing 3 of the self tapping 1 inch screws used for the installation of the door seal extension and door latch. BTW, the door latch install took about 45 minutes alone, it was very tricky to get it just right. Even so, it still isn't perfect -- really have to crank down on the door latch to get it in place. I think another latch spacer would help with this.

    Other than that, it appears to be a good product. I'm hoping the installation of the door seal assembly will seal it better as I can look through the cracks to the exterior of the house right now. Thanks for reading!

Complete Installation Instructions PDF File


Step 1: Remove the existing lock catch plate from your sliding door frame, as it will interfere with your new pet door.

Please Note: Your new pet door comes with two (top and bottom) mounting hangers attached. Please leave these hangers in place.

Step 2: Carefully remove the "H" Top Section from the top of the door. Place your pet door in position as shown. Make sure that the bottom hanger on the door is interlocked with the hanger on the frame.

Step 3: With the pet door in place, mark a pencil line to correspond with the top of the door on the edge of the frame. Remove the pet door panel. Measure down 5 ¼” and make a new pencil line, transferring the line down to the inside of the frame. This new line indicates the bottom edge of the "Top" Hanger. Place the top Hanger in frame and line up the bottom edge with the pencil line. Using the screws provided in Poly Bag #1, attach the hanger to the frame, keeping it centered on the frame.

Step 4: Place the two track fillers underneath the door. Re-hang the IDeal VIP pet door. The fit should now be snug to keep the pet door from moving in the track.

Step 5: Slide the "H" Section onto the top of the door over the springs. A gap of ¼” must be left at the sliding door-side area of the filler section to clear the door seal extrusion pieces.
Height adjustments to the "H" section may be made by cutting along the desired groove with a utility knife.

Please Note: Some doors may require adjustment to the "H" section. You may need to cut it to the required length with a hacksaw.

Step 6: After the "H" Top Section is in place, secure it in the door using two (3⁄16" x 5⁄8") screws provided in Poly Bag #2. Place the screws well away from the glass.

Please Note: This step is optional but will add structural stability and security.

The cat flap does have a magnet to help keep it sealed. However if you want a dual pane cat door with a flap that offered more wind resistance the Endura Flap Vinyl Sliding Glass Dog Door would be the one to go with.
