FAQ

What's the difference between the single flap and the double flap?

The double flap option provides increased insulation against the cold. Both options have magnets on the flap to keep the door sealed in wind.

I want to get the large pet door for my dog, but I am concerned about a person fitting through it.

All Dragon Pet Doors come with a locking cover. This cover can be used to keep you doggy in. It also can be used to keep intruders from entering your home. It slides into the interior frame.

How do I know what size is best for my dog?

When installing the pet door you want it to clear the top of your dog's back by 1-2 inches, minimum. To give your pet the most comfortable pet door possible, make sure the step-over is less than 1/3 of your dog's height. Lastly you want the width of the door to be big enough to allow your pet to go through without touching the sides. Here's a measure your pet with tips on how to determine the correct size.

Are replacement flaps available?

Yes, you can buy Dragon replacement flaps.

Where can I install the Dragon Pet Door?

The Dragon Pet Door has multiple Installation options. You can install it in Regular Doors, as a Wall mount, Aluminum Sliding Doors, Vinyl Sliding Doors, Sash Windows, Vinyl Windows, and Horizontal Windows.

Can my small and large dog share this pet door?

Yes, but make sure to follow standard Measuring Guidelines. Make sure the size of the door is based off your tallest pet, but installed low enough for your smallest pet.

Is the Dragon flap for door mounting the same as the wall mount?

Yes! The flap and frames are identical, the only difference would be the hardware that is included for installation.

Installation Instructions

PARTS LIST 

One Flap Assembly Unit: 

1 Dragon Main Flap - flexible, rectangular piece with the Dragon logo  

1 Dragon U-Flap - narrower flexible piece shaped like the letter “U”

5 Flap Screws - ½” long screws 

5 Flap Washers - white nylon washers 

8 Magnetic Strips - ½” x 2” flexible magnets with adhesive backing 

4 Steel Strike Plates - ½” x 1 ¾” steel plates with adhesive backing

 

Note: If you wish to train your pet on how to use the 2-piece flap prior to attaching magnets, skip to step 3. When you are ready to attach magnets, remove the flaps from the frame and then proceed to step 1.

 

Step 1: Familiarize yourself with the magnets.

a. There are “A” side and “B” side magnets. A-side magnets are smooth, whereas B-side magnets have a thin line market down the middle.

b. The magnets have a paper liner on the back covering their adhesive. You *do not* need to take the liner off to attach the magnets, though you can take it off in the future if you wish.

c. The paper liner of the magnets is white; if you have white frames we recommend you leave the liner on to match your frame color. If you have black frames we recommend you take the liner off so the magnet color matches your frame color. 

 

Step 2: Place magnets in the main flap. 

a. The main flap has two slots to insert magnets.

b. Ensure that you use A-side (smooth) magnets in the main flap.

c. For each magnet, insert one side of the magnet into one side of the slot, magnetic side outwards, ensuring that it goes under the tabs at the corners of the slot.

d. Bend the slot outwards and bend the other end of the magnet into the opposite end of the slot.

e. Flatten the slot, pressing the magnet firmly against the flap.

f. Repeat for the other location for a total of two magnets.

 

Step 3: Place magnets in the U-shaped flap. 

a. The U-shaped flap has six slots to insert magnets.

b. Use A-side (smooth) magnets in the slots circled in red, and B-side (line) magnets in the slots marked in blue.

c. For each magnet, insert one side of the magnet into one side of the slot, magnetic side outwards, ensuring that it goes under the tabs at the corners of the slot.

d. Bend the slot outwards and bend the other end of the magnet into the opposite end of the slot.

e. Flatten the slot, pressing the magnet firmly against the flap.

f. Repeat for the other five locations for a total of six magnets.

 

Step 4: Screw the main flap into the inside frame.

The flat side of the main flap should go against the frame, where the logo is facing away from the door. The side with raised ridges should not be against the frame.

a. Place a white nylon washer over each screw before attaching. Use a phillips-head screwdriver to drive the screws.

b. Do NOT overtighten screws. Tighten just enough for the screw, flap, and frame to all be flush with each other.

c. Repeat for the other two screws for a total of three screws.

 

Step 5: Screw the U-shaped flap into the inside frame. Both the main flap and the U-shaped flap piece go together. 

The U-shaped flap should be oriented so that its magnets are facing the main flap’s magnets and the frame. It should face the same way the letter “U” would, with the two ends facing up. It should be flush with both the frame and inside flap with the flat side of the flap against the frame.

a. Place a white nylon washer over each screw before attaching. Use a phillips-head screwdriver to drive the screws.

b. Do NOT overtighten screws. Overtightening may cause the flap or frame to break prematurely. Tighten just enough for the screw, flap, and frame to all be flush with each other.

c. Repeat for the other screw for a total of two screws.
