Product Details


The Ideal "Fast Fit" Patio Pet Door offers a practical and cost-effective solution for those seeking an easy-to-install pet door for their sliding glass doors. This aluminum-framed pet door insert is designed for moderate, three-season climates and comes in a white finish to seamlessly blend with your home's interior design.

With a tool-free installation, the Fast Fit Patio Pet Door is perfect for rentals, vacation homes, or those who wish to avoid making permanent alterations to their sliding glass doors. The extruded aluminum frame is designed to fit sliding glass door tracks at least 7/8" thick, while the lightweight, single-pane glass and spring-loaded design allow for easy installation and removal.

The clear vinyl flap is thin and comfortable for pets to use, enabling both dogs and cats to come and go with ease. The solid magnetic lining on the bottom of the flap ensures it stays shut when not in use, providing extra security and insulation. 

The Ideal Fast Fit Patio Pet Door features many customizable sizing options. Each panel size also comes with a standard step-over height: 

  • 4" : Medium
  • 8" : Extra Large and Super Large

Ordering a non-standard step-over height and flap combination will require your panel to be custom made, making it non-refundable. For example, the standard step-over is a medium is 4". The medium flap with a 2.5" or 8" step-over is a custom panel pet door. 

The 79.5" - 93.5" height ranges are a two-piece design that you will need to assemble before installing. Additionally, the height extension piece will need to be semi-permanently installed. They are only compatible with channel style tracks and will not fit into monorail sliding glass doors.

In addition to its easy installation and customizable features, the Fast Fit Patio Pet Door also includes a Foam Bumper Seal and Vinyl Draft Seal to reduce heating and cooling loss, enhancing energy efficiency. With this pet door, your furry friends can have the freedom to access the outdoors without compromising your home's temperature and energy usage.

With its practical design and user-friendly features, the Ideal "Fast Fit" Patio Pet Door is an excellent investment for pet owners who value convenience, affordability, and a stylish solution for their pets' needs.

Features:

  • Economical solution for sliding glass door pet access
  • Reduces heating/cooling loss with Foam Bumper Seal and Vinyl Draft Seal
  • Sleek design complements home interior, available in white and brushed aluminum
  • Accommodates large pets with super-large flap size option
  • Enhances pet's nighttime access, preventing sleep interruption for owners
  • Includes a pin lock to secure your door. Installing the pin lock does require drilling, so if you don't want any holes, you can purchase a Charley Bar from Prime Line pet door products.

    Benefits:

    • Economical solution for sliding glass door dog inserts
    • Reduces heating/cooling loss by minimizing the opening and closing of your sliding glass door
    • Sleek design complements the interior design of your house

    • Pet's accessibility to and from the flap at night prevents sleep interruption

    Please Note: If you order a tall height extension piece (10” or greater), the manufacturer recommends screwing the two pieces together and semi-permanently mounting them to the frame of your slider. This will involve drilling into panel's top flange, height extension (careful to avoid getting too close to the glass), and sliding track and securing it with screws that you will need to purchase. 

    Return information: Panels ordered with custom step-overs are non-returnable. Custom height extensions are also non-returnable, however since they are separate pieces, the panel would be able to be returned for credit.

    How to Measure Your Sliding Glass Door for a Pet Door



    FAQ

    Can this be used with vinyl sliding glass doors?

    Generally, yes. The big difference between the two types of sliding glass doors is the thickness or width of the track. As long as your track is at least 7/8" wide, this can fit your patio door. If you have a taller sliding glass door, we recommend that you either add shims or toenail the panel in for added stability. If you have concerns, you can email our Customer Service team with some photos of your track, and we can let you know.

    Do the Ideal Fast Fit Pet Doors for sliding doors require tools for installation?

    The patio pet door insert doesn't. It is meant to be fairly easy to install, so you can take it out if needed. However, you will need tools if you want to install the locking mechanism, as it requires drilling holes into the frame of your slider. You can avoid this by locking your slider against the panel using a Charley Bar or dowel in the track.

    Will I still be able to use my sliding glass door lock after it is installed?

    The Fast Fit panels will not be able to lock into an existing slider door, as there are so many types of door locks they cannot mate with the dog door insert. This door includes a pin lock or you can go with a dowel in the track or Charley Bar.

    Will I still be able to use my sliding glass door after it is installed?

    When the pet door is installed, you will lose some space to walk through. To make sure that you have enough room, we recommend that you check the overall width of the size that you want, especially when purchasing this panel in the super-large flap size. If you are looking for an option that won't obstruct the use of your sliding glass door, we would recommend the Pet Door Guys - "In The Glass" units.

    How do I know what size I should get for my pet?

    We recommend that you measure your pet using the methods described in this video, or via the Measure Your Pet page. 

    Will this work for large and small pets sharing?

    Yes. The flaps are light enough for small pets to push. We recommend a custom lower step-over height to make it easier for the shorter pet to use. The flap should also be large enough for the tallest pet to use without bending down.

    How does this door hold up in the winter?

    The flap will likely blow open with mild wind since this is a more economical doggy door. When more extreme weather occurs, we recommend that you place your locking cover over the pet door or remove the panel.

    Can I use a different, more wind resistant flap with this?

    Unfortunately, flaps are not interchangeable between pet doors. Panels also do not offer double flaps. In order to get a more wind resistant flap, you would need to get a more energy efficient unit.

    Does the Ideal Fast Fit Panel have an adjustable step-over?

    No, the Fast Fit does not have an adjustable step over. You can get a custom step-over. Keep in mind that the custom step over cannot be adjusted once built, and it does make the item non-returnable.

    Does the Ideal Fast Fit Panel door include a Draft Stopper?

    Yes, this door does come with a black draft stopper and a black foam weatherstrip. You can order a white patio pacific draft stopper for an additional cost.

    What is the frame thickness of the Ideal Fast Fit Dog Door?

    The Fast Fit Aluminum Pet Patio Door is 7/8" thick.

    Does the Fast Fit come with a cat door option?

    A cat could use this door, but the Ideal "Fast Fit" Sliding Glass Cat Doors is made specifically for cats with a cat flap.

    Can I purchase the flap and frame together for my Ideal Fast Fit panel?

    Yes, the Ideal Fast Fit Flap and Frame Assembly is available for purchase. Please make sure you are ordering the correct logo for your specific panel. If you no longer have the original flap, you can figure out what logo you have a couple of other ways. You can measure the entire width of the panel, as these measurements changed when the manufacturing location did. Another option is to unscrew the frame from the patio panel. If it's one piece that screws directly into the sides of the aluminum frame, it's an old-style rectangular logo. If the frame is two pieces that screw into each other (not the metal panel directly), then it is a new-style round logo. If you still have the original flap (plastic frame), you may be able to figure out which flap and frame you need by looking at this page.

    What if I am at the top of the adjustment range?

    Ideal does offer a height extension, but you can also make up for slight height issue by sliding a piece of wood in the top channel that is cut to size. This should give the panel enough tension at the top to hold it in place.

    What if I am at the bottom of the adjustment range?

    You can actually trim up to 3/4" off the spring load at the top. It is 1/8" in thickness. This is done with a jigsaw using a metal cutting blade.

    Can I add magnets to this dog door for the patio dog door?

    No, the flap has a magnet bar across the bottom. Additional magnets cannot be added.

    Do you recommend the Ideal Fast Fit for a mesh screen door?

    No. It is designed to fit in the track of your sliding glass door, not the screen. We do have a variety of other screen sliding door options.

    I'm on a budget and need a dog door sliding glass door insert. What do you recommend?

    The budget sliding glass door pet door insert we recommend is the Ideal "Fast Fit" Patio Pet Door.

    I have an older silver sliding glass door, what budget dog door sliding door insert do you have?

    The Ideal "Fast Fit" Patio Pet Door is a dog door insert for sliding glass doors that is available in brushed aluminum (which is a silver color).

    I need a 74" right side sliding door doggie door insert, but don't see one that size. What can I do?

    The Ideal Fast Fit doggy door for sliding doors has a minimum height of 75", but can be trimmed down to 74". This will not work if your sliding glass door has a track wall on both sides. If it does have this wall, you will need to order a Custom Height Endura Flap Pet Door insert.

    What pet door for renters do you recommend for sliding door inserts?

    The sliding glass door pet door insert we recommend for renters is the Ideal "Fast Fit" Patio Pet Door panel due to its no-tools installation and removal and lower cost.

    Where can I find a replacement sliding glass door gap filler?

    We recommend the Draft Stopper. It will fill in the gap between the operational panel and fixed panel of your sliding glass door.

    I need a budget-friendly doggy doors for sliding glass doors to fit my 76" tall door. Can you help?

    The doggy door insert we recommend is the Ideal Fast Fit Shorty pet door. It installs without tools and fits tracks 75" - 77 3/4" tall.

    Can the 01RIFF Ideal Fast Fit Patio Pet Door be removed when I go out of town and my dog is boarded?

    Yes. It uninstalls as easily as it installs.

    What can I do if the fast fit aluminum pet patio door is too short for my sliding glass door?

    You can add a custom made height extension to make it taller. If you're buying a new panel, buy from the Custom Ideal Fast Fit. If you already have a Fast Fit panel, you need to buy the Ideal Height Extension only.

    Will this take up too much space in my slider?

    The panel will take up some space, and some pet owners have said that they have trouble squeezing by it. An alternative is the Pet Door Guys pet doors.

    How much does shipping cost?

    Shipping is calculated at checkout.

    Does the Fast Fit come with a cat door option?

    A cat could use this door, but the Ideal "Fast Fit" Sliding Glass Cat Doors is made specifically for cats with a cat flap.

    Can I purchase the flap and frame together for my Ideal Fast Fit panel?

    Yes, the Ideal Fast Fit Flap and Frame Assembly is available for purchase. Please make sure you are ordering the correct logo for your specific panel. If you no longer have the original flap, you can figure out what logo you have a couple of other ways. You can measure the entire width of the panel, as these measurements changed when the manufacturing location did. Another option is to unscrew the frame from the patio panel. If it's one piece that screws directly into the sides of the aluminum frame, it's an old-style rectangular logo. If the frame is two pieces that screw into each other (not the metal panel directly), then it is a new-style round logo. If you still have the original flap (plastic frame), you may be able to figure out which flap and frame you need by looking at this page.

    What if I am at the top of the adjustment range?

    Ideal does offer a height extension, but you can also make up for slight height issue by sliding a piece of wood in the top channel that is cut to size. This should give the panel enough tension at the top to hold it in place.

    What if I am at the bottom of the adjustment range?

    You can actually trim up to 3/4" off the spring load at the top. It is 1/8" in thickness. This is done with a jigsaw using a metal cutting blade.

    Can I add magnets to this dog door for the patio dog door?

    No, the flap has a magnet bar across the bottom. Additional magnets cannot be added.
