Removing Your PetSafe Window Pet Door

  • You will first need to loosen the thumbscrews, you may first need to lift the pet door up to loosen the bottom screw.
  • Then compress the window pet door and tighten the thumbscrews once again for easy removal.

Locking the Panel

  • A great way to lock your sliding window is a Charley bar or dowel in the track. Both work off the same concept - they block the slider from opening. When engaged you cannot pull the sliding door away from the pet door panel.
