Installation Instructions

Guillotine Closure Installation Instructions:

Step 1: Place the panel against the wall as a template. Install each channel so that the panel slides in each side of the grooved tracks.

Step 2: Drill a hole or install an eye hook in the panel. Install two pulleys (purchased separately) to the ceiling and attach a cable or rope (purchased separately) to the polypropylene panel.

Step 3: Slide the panel in the channel as needed.

Do the guillotine dog doors come with hardware for setting up a pulley system?

You would have to purchase your own hardware if you wanted to link this up with a pulley system. It would also require drilling the holes in the solid panel.

Do you know how to make a guillotine dog door pulley system?

You would have to purchase the hardware locally, but it would require drilling a hole in the closing panel and atatching the cable. Then you would have to hang the pulley above the door and thread the cable through a hole in the fence run. This will allow you to open and close the run without going inside. We have some detailed photos on the installation instruction tab too.

What size Gun Dog Doors fit with the Medium?

The Gun Dog Heavy Duty and the Medium Easy Door.

What size Gun Dog Doors fit with the Extra Large?

The Large Easy Door and the Big Dog Door.

Can I use this with other doors?

Yes, the guillotine doors for dog kennels can be used with really any door as long as the opening for the pet door is smaller than the flap dimension of the guillotine door.

Is the door durable?

Very durable, which is why we recommend it for kennel use.

Is it hard to install?

Since it is only 4 parts that you screw into the door or wall, it is not particularly hard. However, you do need to make sure that you install them at the right width or else the cover won't fit properly.

Is there a lock on the cover?

No, but you can install your own. This can be done by drilling a hole through the cover and the channel and then using a metal pin lock that would go through both.

Could I use this on a house or is it just for kennels?

You could use this for a residential application as well.

Can I paint it?

You could paint the panel with the proper type of paint as it is just a polypropylene material.

Can I just use this as a pet door?

You could, but it just wouldn't provide any insulation value with open.
