  • good pet door for inside use review by Pat
    5 4 good pet door for inside use

    I use this pet door in my bedroom door to let my dog in while having the door closed. It is a very cheap, plastic pet door so I would not recommend this for outside use.

  • Size Matters review by William
    5 3 Size Matters

    A replacement door seemed to not be manufactured any more. Mine actually fits the hole cut in my door. The replacement I ordered was too small. The products are excellent and I may have to order a different door and recut the opening at a later date.

  • Magnet not very strong review by Sarah
    5 2 Magnet not very strong

    My builder put this dog door in my back door-didn't have a choice which brand. My med size dogs have no problem going in & out but on windy days the flap blows open. Magnet is not very strong. I need something to keep the rain out. I had water inside on my floor after a storm. Had to put the cover on to keep the flap closed with the wind. I'm looking at a severe weather flap hoping that will be better with wind, rain...

  • locking device does not hold up review by Alice
    5 2 locking device does not hold up

    The door itself looks good, was easy to install, and is easy to keep clean; however, the clap-on closer does not stay on well.
    All three of my cats just walk up and take it off. It's useless.I'm looking for one that has a slide in closer.

  • Great product review by Susie my dog
    5 5 Great product

    The door worked great, for our small Yorkie, she has no problems, getting in or out. Fit in the bottom of our storm door on our screen in porch fine. We had no problems. This is the second time we have ordered these doors, and have been pleased both times.

  • Flap does not stay shut review by Mel
    5 1 Flap does not stay shut

    At first this door was fine. But after about a month the magnetic flap would no longer 'catch'. This is allowing my air-conditioning to blast to the outside. I am having to find another door before this winter as it will be intorerble to have cold air blasting in!

  • Yorkies love it review by EddieD
    5 4 Yorkies love it

    Very pleased with this PetSafe plastic door. I have 2 yorkies less than 10 lbs each. They say the small door is the correct size. I think they are nuts. I bought the medium, up to 40 lb dog, which is the perfect size. I don’t think my dogs would use the smaller door. The box has a picture of a collie using this medium door. There is no way a collie can fit through this door. Buy the next bigger size than they say. I installed this door into my very cheap, back yard, storm door. The cut-out I framed with 1x2 furring strip for added support (on the inside) due to my flimsy storm door. Otherwise, every time the dogs would use the doggie door, it would wobble in & out from them pushing their heads into the flap. This is working out great. I just open my exterior house door, then the dogs go through the pet door, in the storm door, & out into the fenced in yard. For the first 2 days I taped the flap up so the dogs would get used to going in and out of this little doorway. They caught on quick. Then I dropped the flap down. One dog understood what to do as soon as I bumped her head against the flap a few times. The other dog took several bumps and a couple days. I did switch the screws with the size I needed. I don’t trust the plastic screws that come with the pet-door.

Petsafe Plastic Pet Door Installation

Installation Instructions

  • Step 1: Measure your pet’s shoulder height. Use this measurement to mark the location on your door for the pet door.
  • Step 2: Remove the door for easiest installation. Apply the template and trace around it. Then remove the template. Make sure that the traced line is level, or else the flaps will not close correctly.
  • Step 3: Drill starter holes and cut around the traced line to create the opening.
  • Step 4: Cut the core covers and insert the weather strips. Snap the core covers inside the frame.
  • Step 5: Install the pet door. Rehang your door if you previously removed it for easier installation.

Q: Does this come in colors?

A: You can paint the plastic frame, but it only comes off the shelf in bright white.

Q: Is this going to keep out weather?

A: The flap seals pretty well, but it does only have a magnet on the bottom so it is not that great in areas with higher winds.

Q: Can large and small pets share the same door?

A: Yes, this would be a great choice if you have different sized pets that need to use the same door.

Q: Can I replace the flap?

A: Yes, we do carry the replacement flaps.

Q: How long do the flaps last?

A: Since this is a more economy style door, you will have to replace the flaps more often depending on use and climate. We find that generally with normal use every few years is a good estimate.

Q: Is it easy to change the flap?

A: It is really easy! You just remove the screws in the top take out the old one and screw in the new one. You don't need to take off the frame or uninstall it.

Q: Can you see through the flap?

A: Yes, it is tinted though so it wouldn't be totally clear.

Q: Can this door be used for a wall application?

A: You could, but you would need to frame out the wall by building a tunnel.

Q: Can I get a replacement cover?

A: They can be replaced, but you have to get them through PetSafe.

Q: Can you get the door with a metal frame?

A: That would be the PetSafe Freedom.

Q: Is this the cheapest door you offer?

A: The plastic pet door extra large size is one of the most economical pet doors, especially if you need one for a giant breed dog.
