1 Step Over is the height of the flap above the base of the pet door. We suggest that 'flap height' + 'rise' should about equal pet shoulder height. These dimensions are approximate within 1/2".
Step 1: Before you install your panel insert, ensure that it is the correct size for your cat. If in doubt larger is better. While cats can force their way through smaller openings, it can be damaging over time and lead to back problems.
Step 2: Clean both sides of the glass window panes. There will be some overlap of the window panes when you are finished installing the window insert. It is very hard to clean between these panes of glass with the insert installed so cleaning well beforehand is recommended.
Step 3: Unroll the strips of fuzzy gray pile weather-stripping and feed them into the channels running along the panel, starting from the bottom. These channels will be on both vertical edges of the panel.
Step 4: Slide open the slider and place the cat door into the slider track by angling the stationary end of the panel into the bottom track.
Step 5: Insert the rest of the panel into the window track and slide the U channel into the top track frame. Move the sliding plate down to expose the adjusting nuts at the top of the track:
Step 6: Use just your fingers to tighten the adjusting nuts. Slide the slider/stationary panel closed to see if there are any gaps or spaces between the panel and the window. If there are any spaces, tighten one of the nuts to make the panel lean one way or the other. Once you are satisfied with the placement, use a wrench to tighten the nuts and secure the panel firmly in place.
Step 7: Slide the piece of weatherstripping at the top edge of the panel to expose the slider adjusting screws for the slider plate. Loosen both preset screws one or two full turns. If you loosen them too much, it might cause the slider plates to fall out. Push the slide plates up until they stop. Tighten the screws to secure it into place and replace the fuzzy weatherstripping over it. There will be a gap above the fuzzy weather-stripping between the edge of the panel and the edge of the adjustment unit. Cover it with a piece of foam.
Step 8: Close the window and inspect for any gaps. If there are any, fill it in with the foam weatherstripping.
Step 9: Place vinyl weather-stripping to the back edge of the slider or the front edge of the stationary panel to seal the now-existing gap. (Figure 5). Clean the edge of the spot that you chose with rubbing alcohol to ensure a good seal. Cut vinyl weather-stripping to the proper length with scissors or a knife. Remove the protective paper from the adhesive area and press firmly into position. Let it set for a few hours to ensure that the adhesive sets.
Step 10: If you so desire, you can put a screw or two (not included) through the sliding panel frame to prevent the panel from being opened. Note: Be very careful not to drill into the glass. If you hit the window pane with either the tip of the drill bit or a screw, it will shatter. The glass in the cat door comes all the way to the edge of the frame, so don’t try to drill into the cat door frame at all.
