  • OK pet door review by LouAnne
    5 3 OK pet door

    The door was fairly easy to install. I wish the flap was made from slightly heavier grade vinyl or that the magnet was stronger, ensuring the flap snaps back into place each time. It doesn't - and it should. I've had pet doors in the past with both those features and yes, the flap was heavier because of it but my cats had no problem pushing through the flap.

  • High quality product and excellent service review by Martin L Cannon
    5 4 High quality product and excellent service

    This door was the prefect fit to replace the 25 year old model of another manufacturer. I was very impressed with the customer service representative who searched for and located this replacement. It came quickly and they emailed me all along the way of the ordering and shipping process. I feel lucky to have found such a good fit so quickly and easily. The only thing I do not like about the product is the 4 screws which are visible at the top of the vinyl flap. I wish they were somehow covered or disguised as they were in the previous door i replaced. I just used some paint which matched to door cover to hide the screws and that seemed to be a good solution.

  • Great value, sturdy frame review by Hunter
    5 5 Great value, sturdy frame

    The aluminum framing is a huge plus because my old plastic one cracked in about 4-5 months after installing. It also looks a lot more sleek and "designer" worthy compared to the plastic ones. The flap is tinted, but still lets light/shadows through, so gives some privacy, but doesn't freak out my dog. Great door!

  • great for indoors review by gilroy
    5 4 great for indoors

  • Great company!!!!! review by Marcia
    5 5 Great company!!!!!

    I looked for several days and many hours for a dog door to replace the one I had, which had a flap that was literally hanging on by a few inches of flap. The lady that helped me stayed late on a Friday afternoon to help me find a door that would fit into the hole I already had in my door. My old door was probably 20 years old, so I couldn't find one that fit exact.. Than on Monday I received a call from another lady that had reviewed the recording and said the company had the exact door and flap that I needed, but because it was discontinued, it wasn't showing up in the inventory. So, she changed my order for me even though the new order ended up being about $50 less. I appreciate the extra effort both ladies put in to make sure I received a door that would work for me. The new door fit perfectly and all my dogs used it within 5 minutes after installation. This is kind of company I enjoy working with.

  • Pestle Freedom Aluminum Pet Door review by txmermaid
    5 5 Pestle Freedom Aluminum Pet Door

    We have had a medium door built for our two Maltese for over 35 years! Other dogs have come and gone and we've only had to replace the flap about every 5 years. We now have a 65 pound hybrid wolf, the love of our life ( another story) and this poor dog has managed to slither through the original door for 7 years. She is getting older now and deserves to have a door that accommodates her size. Good to know that this company is still around and making quality products. We were even able to customize this door by having our contractor build the trim and tunnel between the outside and inside out of wood. Top notch all the way!

  • Works Great review by Sharon
    5 5 Works Great

    For someone that barely knows which end of a screw driver to use, my husband was able to install this door without any problems. Our two dogs love it...they can now go "out" by themselves - especially if we're not home. It took no time at all for them to figure out how to open it...and, we can close it at night so other critters have access to the house. Just wish I could teach my daughter's very little dogs to use it (but then they're terrified of their own shadows!)

  • Solid, Perfect for need review by Jodykins
    5 5 Solid, Perfect for need

    Pretty easy installation. Sturdy, attractive. The dogs are thrilled with their newfound freedom (as am I). This door is used regularly by my 14 pound miniature schnauzer and (unintentionally) by a 60 pound lab Obviously this door is not for dogs that big, but the lab crawls through it with no big problem.

Installation Instructions

Tools Required:

  • Hammer
  • Jigsaw
  • Drill
  • ¼” & ⅜” drill bits
  • Wire cutters
  • Slotted & Phillips screwdrivers
  • Tape measure
  • Tape
  • Pencil
  • Level
  • Scissors
  • Safety glasses

Installation Steps:

  • Step 1: Measure your pet’s shoulder height. Mark this height on the door where you’ll be installing the pet door.
  • Step 2: Center the included template onto the marked area of the door. Trace around the template, and then remove it.
  • Step 3: Drill starter holes and cut out the opening.
  • Step 4: Mark and drill the holes.
  • Step 5: Install the pet door, making sure that you fasten the screws by hand. Using a power drill may result in breakage. Make sure not to overtighten.

Q:Are replacement flaps available?

Yes, you would need the Petsafe Freedom Flaps.

Q: Can this pet door be installed into a wall?

A: It is not designed for wall installation and does not have a wall tunnel. There are other pet door models which are designed for installation in walls.

Q: How do I lock the Pet safe freedom door at night or when I'm away?

A: A plastic closing panel is included with your purchase. It can be used to keep stray animals out and for additional weather resistance.

Q: What door thicknesses can it be installed in?

A: This pet door can fit in doors from 3/8 inch to 2 inches thick.

Q: Does the flap have magnets?

A: It has a magnet strip across the bottom of the flap.

Q: Can this door be installed in storm door?

A: Yes, as long as the door is 3/8 inch to 2 inches thick. Or you can use small shims or weather stripping to build up the back of the frame for materials less than 3/8" The Pet Safe Freedom is the best economical choice for storm door installs.

Q: Can this be used for a garage door installation?

A: You can use the pet safe aluminum in a garage door, however if it is a roll up garage door you would need to be mindful of your pets height. If the pet is taller then installing this high enough may require you to cut into more than one of the panels, which would cause a problem with the operation of the garage door.

Q: How well does this door insulate?

A: It has brush-type weather strip on the frame for insulation and a magnet along the bottom to seal the flap closed. We would really recommend it for more moderate climates.

Q: Can this be installed in an interior door?

A: Yes, the aluminum pet safe door can be as long as the door is 3/8 inch to 2 inches thick.

Q: Is the flap clear?

A: The flap is a light tan and is translucent, but not completely clear.

Q: Can this door be installed in a screen door?

A: No, it is not designed for screen door installation. The door would be too heavy for the screen material.

Q: How many flaps does this door have?

A: It has one flap.

Q: Is this the same size as the plastic door?

A: the aluminum dog door has the same flap dimensions as the plastic pet safe door.
