Do I need to cut the tunnel to fit my door?

No, it is telescoping so you can adjust it to fit your wall thickness.

What is a telescoping tunnel?

The tunnel pieces are made of separate parts where one fits into the other to create a range. This will allow the pet door frame to fit into a wide range without needing to trim the tunnel sections.

What wall thicknesses does this fit?

It fits walls between 4 3/4" - 5 1/4" or 6 3/4" - 7 1/4".

How do I know how thick my wall is?

The easiest way to measure is to measure a door or window in that wall. If you do not have a door or window, you can drill a small hole through the wall to measure.

If my wall is thicker than the adjustment range, can I still use this?

No, it is not recommended to use this for a wall outside the adjustment range because the plastic frame is difficult to cut. You can order the Ruff Weather Door Mount and build your own tunnel to accommodate thicker walls.

Can I use this with a doggy door of another brand?

No, this will only work for Ideal Pet Products Ruff Weather pet door and Weather Protector pet doors.

Is this easy to install?

It depends on how handy you are. Sawing is required, but depending on your specific needs, you may need to caulk or install additional support as well. For more

What does this come with?

This only comes with the tunnel section for the pet door. The actual Ideal Pet Products designer pet door is available here.

Can it fit between studs?

It can in the small, medium, and extra-large sizes. However, the rough cutout size width for the super large is 16 1/4", which could be too wide for most walls. This would need a bit more framing around the opening in the wall to ensure it is stable.

What is the warranty like?

The manufacturer has a 1-year warranty against manufacturer defects. Check out the return policy in our product information tab for further details.

Does the self-framing wall kit work for my Ruff Weather Pet Door?

Yes, four sizes are available and include all you need to convert your door mount into a wall mount.

Where can I buy replacement flaps for the Ruff Weather pet door, which has a double flap design?

You can find replacement vinyl flaps from Ideal Pet Products pet supplies here. If you have a double flap design, make sure you buy two in the proper flap size in order to maintain your door's energy efficiency.
