|Flap Size||Flap Dimension||Step Over Range||Overall Panel Width||RecommendedPet Height*|
|Small||6" w x 11" h||3" – 5"||11 3⁄8"||9 – 15"|
|Medium||8" w x 15" h||3" – 5"||13 3⁄8"||9 – 19"|
|Large||10" w x 19" h||3" – 5"||15 3⁄8"||9 – 23"|
|Extra Large||12" w x 23" h||3" – 7" (ships at 5")||17 3⁄8"||9 – 29"|
The recommended pet width is generally 1 – 2" added to the width of the flap. Do not know which size to get? Here is a measurement guide to help you out.
Track Height Adjustment Range is the measurement of your door height from the lowest point of your track to the highest point. Review our Track Measuring Guide for more information. The Endura Flap Quick Panel 3 comes in three adjustable ranges:
- Short: 74 3⁄4" – 77 3⁄4"
- Regular: 77 1⁄4" – 80 1⁄4"
- Tall: 93" – 96 1⁄4" (additional cost)
If your measured track height does not fall within one of the ranges above, we can make a custom height. Choose the range that your track height falls into and when ordered you will be asked to give the exact height of your slider track inside very top to very bottom. In each case you will have 3" of height adjustment with the height you specify approximately in the middle of that range. The ranges are:
- Under 74 1⁄2"
- Between 80 1⁄4" – 93 1⁄4"
- Over 96 1⁄4"
Custom height option may take up to 4 weeks to special order the glass and build the panel.
CAUTION: If your measured track height is near the bottom of the adjustment range then you should review A Note of Caution.
Endura Flap products have a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship under standard regular use. Damage caused by not using the product as intended, improper installation, and chewing is not covered under this warranty.
Please Note: This video features the Endura Flap® Thermo Panel 3e, which is the same as the Quick Panel 3 with the exception of dual pane Low-E glass instead of single pane tempered glass. The installation process is the same for both panels.

The aluminum, vertical panel has a patented ‘Adjustable Step-Over’ feature which permits adjusting the height of the flap to the most comfortable fit for your pet. Generally, the top of the flap should be positioned to be at least 1” (2,5 cm) above the top of the pet’s shoulder (the ‘withers’). If the factory setting is not suitable, please adjust it before proceeding. If the current setting is suitable, or you have the vinyl panel, proceed to step 3.
ADJUSTING THE STEP-OVER HEIGHT - OPTIONAL (for aluminum panels only)
Step 1A: Two-piece panels: Simply slide the pieces up and out from the bottom half of your panel to rearrange. Loosen a bottom screw if the pieces are too snug to move.
One-piece panels: Lay the entire panel on a flat surface (like the floor). Using a #2 Phillips head screwdriver, remove the bottom side-screws, and loosen the next upper screws one turn. Screws were tightly installed to hold the panel together during shipping; a drill is recommended*.
*If you do not have a Phillips head drill bit skinny enough to fit, let us know and we’ll send you one for free.
Step 2B: One-piece panels: Once the bottom screws have been removed and the next upper side-screws loosened, the Pet Door Assembly and spacers can be removed by sliding the sections down and out of the panel.
Step 2C: Replace the spacers and the Pet Door Assembly by sliding them back in a different order to achieve the desired height. You can move the spacer below or above the flap to raise or lower the flap height.
The order of the pieces is important! The piece on the bottom needs to always be at the bottom, as that is where the screws attach.
When finished, replace the bottom side-screws and tighten the next upper-side screws for one piece panels and skip to step 4. For two-piece panels, you can now assemble the patio panel!
Please Note: A lower step-over height is easier for pets to navigate. However, if the top of the flap is low enough that the pet needs to crouch to get through their pet door, they can injure themselves and possibly cause the pet door to malfunction. If your pet door does not sit at a comfortable height for your pet, you may need a larger size flap.
TWO PIECE PANEL
(if you have a single piece panel, please proceed to step 4)
Step 3A: Align the aluminum connectors extending from the bottom flap panel section with the top glass panel section. Press the aluminum connectors into the holes at the bottom of the top glass panel section. Ensure locking cover & thumb screws are on the same side!
Step 3B: Gently tap the bottom surface of the panel against the ground to completely insert the connectors. Protect hard surfaces to prevent scratching. The components of the panel are designed to slide together very tightly.
Step 3C: Fasten the two panels together using the four stainless steel hex head screws found in the panel packaging. Use the hex wrench to tighten screws so the two halves of the door are pulled together.
Please Note: Screw holes may look misaligned; this is intentional to ensure a tight fit. The panels will squeeze together as the screws are tightened.
Step 4: Loosen the thumb screws at the top of the pet panel. This allows the spring mechanism to move freely up and down.
Step 5: To insert the panel pet door into the top track, push up against the spring mechanism and swing the bottom of the panel up and over the threshold. Seat the panel on top of the small guide rail in the track. If you can’t quite get it in the track, try swinging in from the outside as the outside track wall may be shorter.
You want to put the pet door in your track before applying any weather-stripping to ensure it fits! If it fits well, move on to the next step. See our tips at the end of these steps if you have trouble!
Step 6: Once you’re sure the panel fits, remove the panel from the frame and lay it on its side on the ground. Apply the foam weather-stripping by peeling back the paper and exposing the adhesive. Unroll it along the edge of the panel, pressing to ensure it adheres. Install on both sides, trim to fit with scissors.
Step 7: The center post weather seal strip (draft stopper) should be installed on the inside of the home. It can install on either the back edge of the sliding door panel or the leading edge of the stationary panel. This strip prevents air leaking between the sliding glass door and the stationary panel. Trim with scissors as needed. Clean the edge of your patio door with rubbing alcohol before installing to assure a good seal.
Since you cannot lock your sliding glass door to your panel pet door, we have provided you with an alternative locking method to secure your home:
Installing the sliding door clamp: This clamp has a screw which tightens by hand to prevent the sliding door from moving beyond the clamp’s placement. For doors manufactured with the glass slider on the inside track, the lock can usually be installed on the door’s raised track.

Also known as the 'Center Post Weather Strip', it seals the gap created between stationary and sliding glass doors when a panel doggy door is installed. These are essential for an airtight seal and in fact some customers use one inside and one outside in extreme climates. We included it in all Thermo Panel 3e, Quick Panel 3 and Thermo Panel 3e Microchip sliding glass pet doors for sliding glass doors, but you can use our draft stopper with any panel pet door.

No, these panels are only single flap models. This flap insulates so well, it protects against weather better than other dual flap models.

It is not completely transparent, although you may be able to see the shadow of your pet just before they come back in the house. It is similar to a shower door, where you can tell something is on the other side, but it is fuzzy.
How loud is it when it opens and closes?
When the bottom of the flap meets the magnet bar, there will be a clicking sound. For jittery, small pets, you may want to tape down the magnet bar to reduce sound while training them.
How often will I need to replace the flap?
We are confident in the quality of this door and have instituted a lifetime warranty for the endura quick panel. Replacements vary with every household just depending on usage. More active dogs and harsher winters will need a replacement flap sooner than others.
Do I need an electronic pet door for my patio or will a regular manual one do?
Generally, we recommend that if you do not have a specific reason to get an electronic sliding pet door then you should get a regular manual one. There is less that could go wrong as far a possible malfunctioning. However, if you've got a stray cat problem or a raccoon problem, you'll need an electronic patio panel which would keep all unwanted animals out. Another aspect to think about is if your dog or cat is infirm or very old, one of the motorized panels that allows them in and out freely without them needing to push a flap might be the ticket to a comfortable and easy process for your pet.
Can the Endura Flap Panel come with an electric door?
We have the Thermo Panel 2e Microchip Patio Panel that incorporates the SureFlap Microchip Pet Door into our dual pane glass panel. This is suitable for large cats and small dogs, as the flap dimension is 7” x 7” and works off your pets embedded microchip. If your pet does not yet have the chip then it comes with an RFID collar key that can be used.
What if my sliding glass door has a monorail (raised) track instead of a channel ("U" shaped) track?
If your monorail is 3/4" or less thick, you can install the Quick Panel 3 with some modification to the bottom of the panel. You will need to contact customer service to order an additional part not sold on our website. This will be a custom installation requiring the use of a power drill and possibly a jigsaw. Once these modifications have been made, the panel will not be returnable and will become a permanent installation. Here are some pictures of an Endura Flap ® Quick Panel installed in a monorail sliding glass door.
