Product Details


If your sliding glass door track height is between 80 5/16" - 93 3/4" or 96" - 110 1/2", the Ideal Fast Fit patio panel pet door will not be tall enough to fit into your door frame. Fortunately, Ideal offers a custom height extender for sliding glass pet doors to accommodate customers who have odd track heights. If you have not already purchased the panel, you can order the custom pet door extension and panel together.  For tips to measure your track height correctly, please watch this video.

Step 1: Determine what your height extension needs to be in inches. Calculate it by subtracting the fully extended panel height from the height of your sliding glass door track. Then add 2 1/8" order to get the correct height for the extension. Below is an example calculation:

  • Track height = 88", Panel = 80 5/16"
  • 88" - 80 5/16" = 7 11/16"
  • 7 11/16" + 2 1/8" = 9 13/16" (Round this number to the closest whole inch)
  • You should choose the 10" height extension


Please Note: The maximum height for the extension is 14". It can be built up to 16", but the manufacturer suggests that you then semi-permanently install it for stability. This would involve drilling into your track and securing it with screws.

Step 2: Measure the flap and the full width of the panel to double-check you are ordering correctly.  Then choose the option according to the size chart below:

 Panel Size Flap Size Panel Width
Small 5"w x 7"h 9 3/4"
Medium 7"w x 11 1/4"h 11 7/16"
Extra Large 10 1/2" x 15"h 15 1/4"
Super Large 15" x 20"h 19 5/8"

 

Please Note: The Ideal Fast Fit patio panel pet door height extension will not fit any other patio pet door panel, so be sure to double-check that your door is an Ideal with the aluminum framing. Also, because it's a custom-built order, it is not returnable after purchase.

Installation Instructions

Step 1: Place your Fast Fit Panel upright and rest in the lower track. 

Step 2: Ensure the adjustment piece at the top of the panel is in its lowest setting. 

Step 3: Slide the Height Adjustment Piece into the ‘U’ shaped flange at the top of the Fast Fit Panel. 

Step 4: Gently release the thumbscrews and allow it to rise into the upper track. 

Step 5: Once you have confirmed a proper fit, remove the panel and lay it on a flat surface to install weather stripping to each vertical side of the panel and the extension piece.  

Step 6: Reinstall and tighten the thumbscrews. 

 

Please Note:

You can join the two pieces together for a more secure union by purchasing two tamper-proof bolts and nuts at your local hardware store. We recommend using a tamper-proof head on the outside (side opposite the thumbscrews). Drill through the ‘U’ shaped flange of the Fast Fit Panel and lower frame of the height extension piece. Be careful to not drill too close to the glass in the extension piece. Screw the two pieces together.

 

If you have 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. 

FAQ

How do I know if I need an extension?

The doggie door extension would work for you only if you have an Ideal sliding glass door height between 75" - 77 1/2", 80 5/16"-93 3/4", or 96"-110 1/2"

How do I figure out the height I need?

Calculate your Ideal extension size by subtracting your current panel height from the maximum height of your sliding door, then add 2-1/8" in order to get the correct height for the door extender. This calculation is the same for the 96" door as well.

What is the maximum height I can get for the fast fit extension?

The maximum height for the extension is 14". It can be built up to 16", but the manufacturer suggests that you then semi-permanently install it for stability for any extension greater than 14".

Can you give me an example?

Certainly. If you measure your track height at 88" exactly, you would then subtract 80 5/16" from 88" equals 7 11/16" and add back 2 1/8" = 9 13/16". Height extender measurement would be specified as 9 13/16" in the dialog box offered.

If I measure incorrectly, can I exchange it?

No. This custom extension panel is built to your exact specifications, so it is non-returnable/non-exchangeable.

Is it better to underestimate or overestimate when measuring?

If you're on the borderline of a measurement, it's better to overestimate a little bit (but not too much) as the panel itself can always be shortened down to the lowest end of its range. That said, do your best to get the most accurate measurement you can.

What is this height extension compatible with?

The height extension for patio pet door is only for Ideal "Fast Fit" Patio Pet Door, Ideal "Fast Fit" Sliding Glass Cat Doors, and Ideal "E-Cat" Electronic Panel Pet Door.

Why does it ask me for flap size?

The flap sizes correspond to a certain width, so we ask this in order to determine the width of your panel.

Then why does it ask me for the width of the panel again?

If you have one of the older Ideal Fast Fit models, it is possible that the width is a little different, so we ask this just to double-check.

Does this work for the Ideal VIP/VPP panels or other panels?

No, this is only compatible with the Ideal "Fast Fit" and "E-Cat" panels.

If my dog door extension only needs to be a few inches tall, will it have glass?

Chance are, no. If it is a short height extension, it will more than likely be aluminum only.

Does this sliding glass dog door extender need to be screwed to the Fast Fit Panel?

For shorter dog door height extension, it is not necessary. However, it can help make the connection between the two more secure. For tall heights, it is necessary to screw the two together.

Will this pet door extender work with other brands of pet doors?

The Height Extension is designed exclusively for the Fast Fit and should not be used with other Ideal models or other pet door brands patio panels.

LIFESAVER!!

I accidentally ordered a height adjustment size shorter than I should have...luckily didn't have to shell out another couple hundred bucks because Customer Service directed me to this height extension! (They also had me double check that I had a panel from the Ideal Fast Fit series because apparently this won't work with any other models, so just an FYI to y'all out there.)

I had this Fast Fit panel at my old house. My new house had a taller opening. i was able to buy this height extension to fill the gap between the Fast Fit and the top of my door. Make sure you follow the instructions for the calculations because the Height Extension is custom made and not returnable. I ended up calling their Customer Service department and they were very helpful.
