Parts

  • 4 Corner Brackets
  • 24 Wood Screws
  • 1 Long Wood Screw
  • 1 Roll of Sealing Tunnel Tape
  • 1 Tube of Silicone
  • 1 Hole Transfer Jig with Level
  • 1 Locking Cover
  • 1 Cutout Template
  • 6 Plywood Tunnel Pieces (4 for XL)
  • 1 Inside Frame
  • 1 Outside Frame

Tools

  • Pencil
  • Hammer/Mallet
  • Measuring Tape
  • Electric Drill
  • Safety Gear
  • Stud Finder
  • Drywall Knife (or other for cutting inner wall)
  • Saw for Cutting Outer Wall (compatible with your wall material)
  • Razorblade (for trimming tape)
  • ⅜” Drill Bit
  • Philips Screwdriver

Step 1 Measure Your Pet

  • Measure your pet and make a mark at least 3” above your pet’s height on your wall, this will line up with the top of the template.
  • If a height taller than the max is needed, you will need to cut a new piece of lumber for your pet door tunnel.
  • Depending on pet height and the height of your baseboards you may need to cut into the baseboards to install the frame. If you want to avoid that, make sure to set the height accordingly.

Step 2 Prepare Wall for Installation

  • Find a section of your wall that is against a stud on one side, but does not contain any plumbing or wiring.
  • Once you find the stud, you can open a small area of the wall next to the stud that is large enough for you to feel around.
  • You can double-check for any plumbing, wiring, studs, or additional bracing that is in the way. Do not cut through plumbing, wiring, or bracing.
  • Extra-Large Size Only: This section will span from stud to stud for typical stud spacing of 16” on center (14.5" between studs).

Step 3 Make the Rough Cutout

  • Line up the provided template with the edge of the stud and tape it to the wall. Trace the side of the template along the stud. Remove the template, then cut along the stud line with a saw.
  • Line up the template again, adjusting to match the edge of the stud. Trace the remaining outline of the template. Remove the template and cut the rest of the lines drawn.
  • Remove insulation inside the wall as needed. You can save some to put back into open areas of the wall cavity.

Step 4 Measure the Studs

  • Determine the width of tunnel pieces to use by test fitting each width or measuring the width of studs inside the wall.
  • For 2x4 studs, use the narrower (3.5”) plywood sections.
  • For 2x6 studs, use the wider (5.5”) plywood sections.

Step 5 Insert the Vertical Tunnel Piece

  • Screw the long wood screw halfway into the middle of the vertical piece to act as a handle. Insert the vertical tunnel section inside the wall cavity and tap into place with a mallet or hammer. The face of the plywood should be flush with the cutout. Add back any insulation that can fit under the cutout.
  • Extra-Large Size Only: For standard 16" on center studs, the top and bottom pieces will span from stud to stud so you can skip this step.
  • Extra-Large Size Only: For non-standard stud spacing, you will need to get wood from a local hardware store to create the frame for the pet door. The frame opening should match the size of the provided template.

Step 6 Install Corner Brackets

  • Pre-install the four corner brackets at both ends of the two shorter plywood sections that match the width of your studs. The brackets must be flush with the edge of the short plywood pieces and centered.
  • Use only two screws per leg of the bracket.

Step 7 Install Bottom and Top Tunnel Pieces

  • Insert the bottom tunnel piece and screw it into the existing stud making sure it is even with the cut edge of the drywall and level or slightly angled down towards the outside. You may need a hammer/mallet to tap it into place if the fit is snug.
  • Screw the bottom tunnel piece to the vertical tunnel piece, making sure the vertical tunnel piece is resting on the bottom of the inner wall for support.
  • Use the long wood screw partially inserted into the vertical piece to hold onto it.
  • Insert the top tunnel piece and screw it into the existing stud and vertical tunnel piece making sure it’s level and even with the cut edge of the drywall.

Step 8 Drill Through the Outer Wall

  • Remove the long screw from the vertical tunnel piece.
  • Using the provided transfer jig, drill ⅜” holes through the outer wall from the inside of the opening on the top-left and bottom-right corners.
  • Make sure you use the appropriate type of drill for your outer wall.

Step 9 Mark Where to Cut the Outer Wall

  • From the outside, line up the hole transfer jig with the drilled holes. Level the hole transfer jig and mark the jig’s corners on your wall.
  • Use the drill bit as a pin to help line up the hole transfer jig with the hole.
  • Using the template lined up with marked corners, mark all cut lines.

Step 10 Cut Outer Wall Opening

  • Cut along the inside of the lines as accurately as possible.
  • Be careful not to damage the corner brackets and screws near the corners.
  • Trim up any areas that aren’t flush with the plywood tunnel. Clean the inside of your wall of any dust or debris.

Step 11a Prepare Tunnel for Sealing Tunnel Tape

  • Make sure the tunnel area is clean and dry.
  • The edge of the sealing tape should line up with your inside wall, with the rest of the tape overhanging the tunnel on the outside.
  • To apply the sealing tunnel tape, start at the middle of the upper tunnel and apply the tape all around the tunnel, ending with a slight overlap at the top. Make sure to press the tape tightly into the corners as you go.
  • Once in place, firmly apply pressure all along the tape to activate the adhesive.

Step 11b Apply Sealing Tunnel Tape

  • Cut each corner up to the outer wall.
  • Fold back each piece of the sealing tape against the outer wall, pressing firmly.
  • Apply caulking to the openings in all four corners, sealing the cut area of the tape to the outer wall.
  • The sealing tape will be trimmed in a future step.

Step 12 Screw in the Frames

  • Make sure the four tabs are upright and snug to the inside frame. You may have to loosen the screw to rotate it into place using a Phillips screwdriver.
  • Insert the inside frame and level it in the opening with the hole transfer jig. While holding the frame flush against the wall, use four wood screws to screw the mounting tabs to the inside of the tunnel.
  • If there are larger gaps you can pre-bend the mounting tab toward the tunnel.

Step 13 Install the Outside Frame

  • Repeat installation step #12 for the outside frame, making sure the flap(s) swing through both frames without interference.

Step 14 Seal the Inside Frame

  • From the outside, apply silicone in the tunnel, around the sides and bottom edges of the inside frame. This will seal the tunnel tape to prevent water intrusion.

Step 15 Seal the Outside Frame

  • Use a sharp razor blade to trim off any excess tunnel tape that is sticking out past the outside frame on all four sides.
  • Apply silicone where the outside frame meets the exterior wall on the top and sides, but leave the bottom open to allow for drainage.

FAQ

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

All Endura Flap Pet Doors come with a locking cover. This cover can be used to keep your pet inside by blocking access to the doggie door. It also can be used to keep intruders from entering your home. It is made from a special polymer that is as strong as 1/16 inch sheet of steel. If you need to, you can purchase additional Endura Flap locking covers.We also have a product called the Watchdog Steel Security Pet Door Cover that provides maximum security for any pet door, complete with a combination lock and all. The cover comes in sizes large enough to fit even the XL dog doors for wall mount.Security consultants agree that dogs are a good burglar deterrent, especially one that barks. If you want to leave your pet door open make sure the gate to access your yard is locked and you post a Beware of Dog sign.

Can a large dog & cat use the same double flap door flaps?

We recommend cats use the Endura Flap Cat Doors for Walls. Our Endura Flap wall mount pet door has a strong magnetic seal which may be too strong for a cat. However, if you have cats and dogs sharing a door, you can decrease the magnetic resistance of the threshold on large and extra large sizes making it easier for a cat to use. For small or medium pet doors you can offset the magnets slightly which can also decrease the magnetic strength.

I have a small and large dog sharing this door. Will my small dog be able to open the flaps on the extra large double flap dog door?

It depends on the tenacity of your small dog. With the Endura flap door for walls you can decrease the magnetic resistance of the threshold on large and extra large sizes making it easier for your small dog to use. You will also want to make sure the door is mounted low enough for the small talk to walk through and high enough to clear the large dog's back.

Is the flap on the interior or exterior frame for single flap model?

For the single flap wall mount, the flap is attached to the interior frame. If you live in a very cold climate, we'd recommend the double flap model to keep snow out of the pet door tunnel.

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

When installing the Endura Flap wall door you want it to clear the top of your dog's back by 1-2 inches, minimum. You also want the step over to be comfortable. Lastly you want the width to allow your pet to go through without touching the sides. Here's a measurement guide with tips on how to determine the correct size.

Are the panels/flaps flexible? Seems like it would trap a dog if it backed up.

The Endura Flap is slightly more rigid than other economy style flaps, but it is a safe, soft, flexible flap. It remains flexible in temperatures as low as -40°F.

Is a single flap enough for extreme winter weather?

A single Endura Flap on an exterior door is extremely energy-efficient and capable of withstanding winds up to 50 mph. It is the only door which allows you to increase the magnetic strength for increased wind resistance. It is recommended for timid pets. The double flap increases the energy-efficiency further.

Does the door sound very loud when the dog goes in or out?

When the flap gets to its resting place there is a snapping sound when the magnets employ. This sound let's you know the door is doing its job sealing out the elements and keeping your heated or cooled air inside.

I do not have to contend with wind or rain, if I buy the single flap version of the wall dog door is it possible to add the second flap in the future?

It is possible, but it not simple and can be quite costly. A short explanation is that you will need to buy a new tunnel, outer frame with flap and installation kit. The only item you will keep with your single flap in the wall pet door unit is the interior frame with flap.

What side does the locking cover slide in?

All locking covers slide in from the top. If you purchase a double flap model, the locking cover can be used on the inside or outside frame. If you purchase a single flap, the locking cover is on the interior frame (the side closest to the inside of your home).

Other brands of pet doors with plastic flaps always warp and thus let in air. How do these flaps hold up over time?

The Endura Flap is made with a special polymer called Polyolefin. It remains safe, soft and flexible in temperatures as low as -40°F. It does not yellow nor harden in the sun. The patented magnetic design ensures the door door seals well for years. In fact, the pet door and flap are backed by a Lifetime warranty.

Are replacement flaps available?

Yes, we carry Endura Replacement Flaps. They will work for all Endura models (wall mount, doggy door mount, kennel doors, window sashes, and sliding glass door patio pet doors).

Are there color options other than white?

Yes, they are available in Tan and Bronze (Black).

I have a dog that I want to let out, but I want to prevent our cats from using it. Can the door be weighted to keep them from using it?

You can increase the magnetic strength of the door with purchasing additional magnets here. Some people have found success doing this and keeping their cats inside.

Why is there a difference in flap size for the single versus the double flap models?

Since each flap dual walled making them 7/8" thick as the pet pushes through the first flap will actually hit the second flap. This makes it so that there is a loss of about 1" of space a the top as they enter or exit.

Is the patio pacific Endura Flap large wall mount - double flap large enough for a lab?

In general we don't go by breed, however we have multiple dogs here that use that size door (stock code 04PP10 2) to get out to our yard.

Is the Endura Door for Walls easy to install?

Ease of installation is very subjective depending on skill set or access to certain tools that might be needed. The installation of a pet door say into a door is easier than installing it through a wall, however installing it into a door is more complicated than putting a pet door into a sliding door track, so it is also relative to what type of installation method. We recommend a contractor for installations going.

Step 1 Measure Your Pet

  • Measure your pet and make a mark at least 3” above your pet’s height on your wall, this will line up with the top of the template.
  • If a height taller than the max is needed, you will need to cut a new piece of lumber for your pet door tunnel.
  • Depending on pet height and the height of your baseboards you may need to cut into the baseboards to install the frame. If you want to avoid that, make sure to set the height accordingly.

Step 2 Prepare Wall for Installation

  • Find a section of your wall that is against a stud on one side, but does not contain any plumbing or wiring.
  • Once you find the stud, you can open a small area of the wall next to the stud that is large enough for you to feel around.
  • You can double-check for any plumbing, wiring, studs, or additional bracing that is in the way. Do not cut through plumbing, wiring, or bracing.
  • Extra-Large Size Only: This section will span from stud to stud for typical stud spacing of 16” on center (14.5" between studs).

Step 3 Make the Rough Cutout

  • Line up the provided template with the edge of the stud and tape it to the wall. Trace the side of the template along the stud. Remove the template, then cut along the stud line with a saw.
  • Line up the template again, adjusting to match the edge of the stud. Trace the remaining outline of the template. Remove the template and cut the rest of the lines drawn.
  • Remove insulation inside the wall as needed. You can save some to put back into open areas of the wall cavity.

Step 4 Measure the Studs

  • Determine the width of tunnel pieces to use by test fitting each width or measuring the width of studs inside the wall.
  • For 2x4 studs, use the narrower (3.5”) plywood sections.
  • For 2x6 studs, use the wider (5.5”) plywood sections.

Step 5 Insert the Vertical Tunnel Piece

  • Screw the long wood screw halfway into the middle of the vertical piece to act as a handle. Insert the vertical tunnel section inside the wall cavity and tap into place with a mallet or hammer. The face of the plywood should be flush with the cutout. Add back any insulation that can fit under the cutout.
  • Extra-Large Size Only: For standard 16" on center studs, the top and bottom pieces will span from stud to stud so you can skip this step.
  • Extra-Large Size Only: For non-standard stud spacing, you will need to get wood from a local hardware store to create the frame for the pet door. The frame opening should match the size of the provided template.

Step 6 Install Corner Brackets

  • Pre-install the four corner brackets at both ends of the two shorter plywood sections that match the width of your studs. The brackets must be flush with the edge of the short plywood pieces and centered.
  • Use only two screws per leg of the bracket.

Step 7 Install Bottom and Top Tunnel Pieces

  • Insert the bottom tunnel piece and screw it into the existing stud making sure it is even with the cut edge of the drywall and level or slightly angled down towards the outside. You may need a hammer/mallet to tap it into place if the fit is snug.
  • Screw the bottom tunnel piece to the vertical tunnel piece, making sure the vertical tunnel piece is resting on the bottom of the inner wall for support.
  • Use the long wood screw partially inserted into the vertical piece to hold onto it.
  • Insert the top tunnel piece and screw it into the existing stud and vertical tunnel piece making sure it’s level and even with the cut edge of the drywall.

Step 8 Drill Through the Outer Wall

  • Remove the long screw from the vertical tunnel piece.
  • Using the provided transfer jig, drill ⅜” holes through the outer wall from the inside of the opening on the top-left and bottom-right corners.
  • Make sure you use the appropriate type of drill for your outer wall.

Step 9 Mark Where to Cut the Outer Wall

  • From the outside, line up the hole transfer jig with the drilled holes. Level the hole transfer jig and mark the jig’s corners on your wall.
  • Use the drill bit as a pin to help line up the hole transfer jig with the hole.
  • Using the template lined up with marked corners, mark all cut lines.

Step 10 Cut Outer Wall Opening

  • Cut along the inside of the lines as accurately as possible.
  • Be careful not to damage the corner brackets and screws near the corners.
  • Trim up any areas that aren’t flush with the plywood tunnel. Clean the inside of your wall of any dust or debris.

Step 11a Prepare Tunnel for Sealing Tunnel Tape

  • Make sure the tunnel area is clean and dry.
  • The edge of the sealing tape should line up with your inside wall, with the rest of the tape overhanging the tunnel on the outside.
  • To apply the sealing tunnel tape, start at the middle of the upper tunnel and apply the tape all around the tunnel, ending with a slight overlap at the top. Make sure to press the tape tightly into the corners as you go.
  • Once in place, firmly apply pressure all along the tape to activate the adhesive.

Step 11b Apply Sealing Tunnel Tape

  • Cut each corner up to the outer wall.
  • Fold back each piece of the sealing tape against the outer wall, pressing firmly.
  • Apply caulking to the openings in all four corners, sealing the cut area of the tape to the outer wall.
  • The sealing tape will be trimmed in a future step.

Step 12 Screw in the Frames

  • Make sure the four tabs are upright and snug to the inside frame. You may have to loosen the screw to rotate it into place using a Phillips screwdriver.
  • Insert the inside frame and level it in the opening with the hole transfer jig. While holding the frame flush against the wall, use four wood screws to screw the mounting tabs to the inside of the tunnel.
  • If there are larger gaps you can pre-bend the mounting tab toward the tunnel.

Step 13 Install the Outside Frame

  • Repeat installation step #12 for the outside frame, making sure the flap(s) swing through both frames without interference.

Step 14 Seal the Inside Frame

  • From the outside, apply silicone in the tunnel, around the sides and bottom edges of the inside frame. This will seal the tunnel tape to prevent water intrusion.

Step 15 Seal the Outside Frame

  • Use a sharp razor blade to trim off any excess tunnel tape that is sticking out past the outside frame on all four sides.
  • Apply silicone where the outside frame meets the exterior wall on the top and sides, but leave the bottom open to allow for drainage.
