The IDeal VPP Vinyl Patio Pet Door is an inexpensive alternative to the Ideal VIP 150. The only differences are that instead of the dual-pane, Low-E insulated glass and Ulta Flex flap, this vinyl dog door has single-pane glass and the Ideal ‘Original’ flap. With these features, the VPP vinyl pet door is perfect for mild climates! One of the best characteristics about this panel is that it has two locking catches to match up with the original lock from your sliding glass door, which is not prevalent among other panel inserts.



  • 2 track height adjustment ranges:
    • 76 ¾” ‒ 78 ½”
    • 78 ½” ‒ 80”
  • Fits into sliding glass door tracks 1 ½” ‒ 1 ¾” wide
  • Locking catches allow the use of original sliding glass door lock
  • Single-pane ⅛” glass
  • Ideal ‘Original’ vinyl flap is clear and flexible
  • Available in sizes medium and extra large
  • ABS plastic locking cover included
  • Accommodates both cats and dogs
  • Draft stopper included to seal any gaps
  • Designed for mild climates



  • Accommodates pets of varying sizes
  • More stable than installing an aluminum frame in a vinyl door
  • Locks with existing sliding glass door lock
  • Vinyl matches perfectly with your existing sliding glass door
  • Pets have the freedom to come and go as they please
  • Clear, flexible flap is easy for pets to use

  • perfect thickness review by Matt
    5 5 perfect thickness

    I needed a door that would fit into my vinyl track. This door worked out perfectly. I got it to lock to my existing slider. Its vinyl so you cannot hardly tell the difference. The flap is great for my California weather. I would definitely recommend this for vinyl doors.

  • Apparently no other vinyl options? review by Mike
    5 4 Apparently no other vinyl options?

    This door works pretty well, for being one of two vinyl options. I like the insulating glass and the flap is a definite upgrade from the old plastic flaps we've had in the past, but if you have dogs who like to roughhouse those things fall apart quick. For the price I'd like something with a better thought out flap.

  • perfect review by Court
    5 5 perfect

    I was looking for a vinyl door that locked. I found this VPP and was pleasantly surprised. It fit in my track great and it locks to my existing lock. I had to have help installing, but I expected that. The flap isnt as energy efficient as the Endura flap, but in my mild climate it does its job. I definitely like this door and the job it does.

  • Good panel for thick tracks review by Ava
    5 4 Good panel for thick tracks

    This panel fits in my 1.5 in track really well. I tried using an aluminum panel previously and it was a bit wobbly. I love the stability that this gives while my dogs bolt through the pet door. The flap does blow open pretty easily tho.

  • Great for my vinyl track review by Emily
    5 4 Great for my vinyl track

    I live in sunny California, so opted for the slightly less expensive VPP model instead of the VIP model. I'm thrilled the lock matches up with my vinyl slider. Takes a bit of installation work, but my husband was able to follow the instructions (included and also on this site) w/ no problem!

  • Great Door review by Frances
    5 5 Great Door

    This door is made well and looks like a seamless part of our sliding door. It went into our sliding door with just a little cut to the top to adjust the fit. It is the perfect size for a 20-30 pound dog.

  • Good door, but install was a challange review by Effie
    5 3 Good door, but install was a challange

    The door works well, but it does take installing so if you aren't handy you should find someone who is. Dogs like the flap, since they can sit there and look out it, but it has blown open with good gusts of wind.

Ideal VPP Patio Pet Door for Vinyl-Framed Sliding Glass Doors

Ideal Installation Instructions (VIP Version Shown)


Ideal VPP Vinyl Patio Pet Door Installation Instructions

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 vpp vinyl pet patio door does require some drilling and cutting, so it may be difficult it you are not handy. Check out the vinyl patio doors "Installation Instructions" tab for more details.

Check out our "Installation Instructions" tab for more information on what types of locks it can latch with.

It is possible that it can work on doors that are not vinyl as long as the specifications are similar. We suggest looking at the install instructions to get a better idea of the fit.

The door only comes in white vinyl, but you could paint it.

It uses the Ideal original pet door, so it is best for areas with a more moderate climate.

The ideal vpp vinyl door has single pane tempered glass. If you were looking for one with dual pane insulated glass and a much more weather resistant flap check out the Endura Flap Vinyl Sliding Dog Door.

Yes, it is completely clear.

It is easier to push open, but the step over could be a bit high if you go with Extra Large and have small dogs or cats.

Yes, the flap and frame assembly can be found here.

This is more of a semi-permanent installation. You can take it out if you need, but that would require uninstalling it, so it is not recommended if you need to take your door in and out daily.
