Product Details


Cat doors for doors that insulate well and remain sealed in extreme weather are often hard to come by. With the Endura Flap® kitty door, you won't have to worry about energy loss or natural elements seeping into your home. Unlike other common cat doors, Endura doors are lined with magnets on three sides of the dual-walled flap for a secure, weather-tight fit and airtight seal, making them the best cat door option for maximum energy efficiency. Engineered to withstand 50 mph winds and temperatures as low as -40°F, the Endura Flap® is a solid, weatherproof cat door that keeps your home at a comfortable temperature without compromising your feline's freedom to come and go.

Installation Instructions

PARTS LIST

  • Flap frame
  • Trim frame
  • Four 1 ¾" (4.4 cm) screws
  • Installation template
  • Eight hole plugs
  • Four 2 ¼" (5.7 cm) screws

 

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • Pencil
  • Drill with 3/8" (9.5 cm) drill bit
  • Level
  • Jigsaw or reciprocating saw
  • Phillips head screwdriver
  • Measuring tape

 

Please Note: Please thoroughly read the instructions before beginning installation.

 

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: If possible, remove the door from its hinges, using a screwdriver and hammer to tap out the hinge pins. Lay the door on a flat surface for installation. Tape the provided template to the door. Be careful not to cut too close to the bottom of the door, as you may jeopardize the door’s structural integrity. Level the top edge of the cut-out line.

Step 2: Once you are certain the pet door will work with your door, drill through the holes marked on the template with a ⅜" (9.5 mm) bit. Make sure your drill is kept level and drills all the way through the door.

Step 3: Draw lines to connect the outsides of the holes using a straight-edge and/or level. Then cut along the line with a saw. If your door is less than 1 ⅜" (3.5 cm) thick, see the special instructions under DOORS LESS THAN 1 ⅜" (3.5 cm) THICK.

Step 4: Ensure the weather stripping is firmly pressed in the groove on both frames.

Step 5: Place the trim frame on the outside of the door and the flap frame on the inside.

Step 6: Select the appropriate screws (see below) and insert them into the pet door from the inside. Do not fully tighten the screws until all four are inserted and the pet door is leveled.

  • 1 ¾" (4.4 cm) screws for doors 1 ⅜" (3.5 cm) thick
  • 2 ¼" (5.7 cm) screws for doors 1 ¾" (4.4 cm) thick

 

Step 7: Once the pet door is leveled, tighten the screws so that the weather stripping compresses and the frames touch the door. Do not over tighten.

Step 8: Use the wooden end of a hammer, rubber mallet, or other non-metal tool to tap in the hole plugs. You can also place a wood block on the hole plug and tap the block with a hammer.

 

DOORS LESS THAN 1 ⅜" (3.5 cm) THICK

If your door is less than 1 ⅜" (3.5 cm) thick, the trim frame needs to be cut down so that the door mount can fit into the door.

Step 1: Remove the foam weather stripping before taking the frame apart. Set aside. Remove the four screws from the trim frame. Pull apart the trim frame. Do not remove the plastic corners attached to the ends of the trim frame pieces.

Step 2: If your door is 1" - 1 ⅜" (2.5 cm - 3.5 cm) thick, cut all four trim frame pieces at the first line about ⅜" (9.5 mm) from the edge.

If your door is ½" - 1” (1.3 cm - 2.5 cm) thick, cut all four trim frame pieces at the line about ¾" (1.9 cm) from the edge.

Be sure to support the trim frame (a block of wood a couple inches shorter than the piece you are cutting is a good choice) so that it does not sit on the plastic corners attached to the ends while cutting.

Step 3: Reassemble the trim frame. If necessary, cut the screws from the packet used in Step 6 (above) down to a ½" (1.3 cm) longer than your door thickness to secure the pet door. When cutting screws, thread on a nut so that once you’re finished, removing the nut will realign the threads of the screw.

Replace the weather stripping when you are finished. Make sure the piece stops and ends at the bottom of the frame.

 

PANELED DOORS

The best way to install the pet door is by straddling the recessed area of one of the panels. Set the pet door on the flat area in the middle, side, and below the recessed panel. The frame will cross the recessed area on the top, so you will be left with a gap. The easiest way to fill this gap is to buy battens or shims from a local hardware store, and cut them to fit. 

When that gap is mostly filled, caulk the remaining areas to seal the pet door to the surface of the door in which you are installing it. If the space is very irregular you can also use squishy, foam weather stripping, which will compress down for a tight fit. When finished, use caulking to seal the door.

FAQ

Can I install this into a wall or window?

If you want a wall entry pet door for cats, it might be best to invest in the Endura Flap Dog Door for Walls, but the flap might be too heavy for your cat to lift. Instead of a door installation, you might want to consider a cat door for windows instead, such as the Thermo Sash 3e Cat Doors for Sash Windows.

Does this door have a lockable flap?

You can lock this door with it's ABS plastic locking cover. The Ideal Pet Products Cat Flap Door comes with a 4-way lock while Petsafe, Cat Mate, and Sureflap sell electronic cat doors that lock and unlock when it detects either a collar key attachment or your cat's microchip.

Can my dog use this door?

Some pet owners report that their small dogs can share a cat door with their cats as long as it has a large enough door size. However, since this door has a taller and narrow flap design than most doggy doors, it may be best to invest in a separate pet door for your dog.

Can I use this as an interior cat door to separate my cat litter box from the rest of the house?

While this door was made into your patio door, there is no reason why it can't be installed indoors.

have to replace

None of the cats (my 3, two neighbors') liked this door. The magnets slammed it shut on their tails. I taped over the magnets in the door. Still closed too hard. I finally cut strips off the door to take off all the magnets. I'm lucky we live where the weather is never terrible, but it does let a lot of air in now. Editor's Note: We suggest adjusting or removing the magnets as opposed to taping over them. The door was designed with this feature specifically for pets that had trouble with the magnet strength.

Good but strong magnets

I live in an area with pretty strong winds so I needed a cat door that can handle that. After some research, this turned out to be the best one! Training my cat was a bit difficult because the magnets were so strong so customer service sends me some videos on how to adjust the magnet strength. Although the flap did blow open relatively easily with all of the magnets out, I was able to gradually add them back as my cats got used to it.

Great quality, great investment

We live in a really cold & windy area, so none of the other cat doors we've tried have really held up except this one. Of course that means much stronger magnets which our cat wasn't used to, but per the company customer service rep's recommendation, we removed a couple magnets for the early stages of training and once our cat was used to the door we put them back in and it was fine. Wish we hadn't spent all the money on those cheap doors and went straight for this one instead!

Best door ever

This pet door is the best you can get. The seal is so secure that wind and water will not move the flap. Since the flap is hinged, it will not wear and break where attached. They are a bit pricey, but worth the money.
