Are your cats constantly clawing your screen door to be let out? The Ideal Pet Passage for Screens is a cost-effective pet screen door designed to eliminate this problem. It installs straight into your existing screen door with a simple snap-on design. Featuring a sloping hinge, the door opens and closes in the direction of a normal door, making it easy for pets to learn to use and push open. Similarly, it avoids scraping against their backs, promoting comfortable use. The door also has a two-way lock, meaning you can keep it completely locked or completely unlocked, depending on your needs. This cat door for screen doors is recommended for kitties and calm, small dogs.

Not only will your pet enjoy their newfound independence, but you will too. You'll no longer have to be your pet's doorman, and the ability to keep the main screen door closed will prevent unwanted bugs from entering. This pet screen door is a simple solution for pet owners who want to get the most use out of their current screen door.

Installation Instructions

Step 1: Take the screen out of the window or door to begin installation. Place it on a flat surface, with the exterior side facing down.

Step 2: Remove the Lock-Out and Latch Bar. These will be used at a later time.

Step 3: Put the outside frame section underneath your screen door.

Step 4: Using your pet's measurements from paw to shoulder, position the outside frames on the screen to be at least an inch above their shoulder height. Make sure that the bottom of the frames are parallel to the bottom of the screen to ensure a proper close. Double check that the frames are level, or else the door will not swing properly.

Step 5: Place the inside frames on top of the screen to align them with the exterior frames. Using a hammer or mallet, tap the frame around until the snap locks are together.

Step 6: Cut out the screen (2 ½" x 7/8") around hinged areas only.

Step 7: With a sharp knife, cut the screen so that the inner flap swings freely.

Step 8: Install the Lock-Out latch bar by inserting into the channel on the inner frame.

Manufacturer’s Note: Be certain there is no gap between frame and screen. Both sides need to be firmly pressed together.



Is the ideal pet screen door easy to install?

Yes, it just snaps onto the screen, and then you cut around the flap.

Can I lock it?

Yes, the door has a built-in locking mechanism.

What is it made of?

It is a plastic material.

Could my small dog use it?

Fit-wise, it is possible. However, the door is not as sturdy as other models, so we would say the Ideal Pet Passage Screen Door would be best for cats and less active dogs.

Do I need to replace my screen?

You don't need to replace the screen since it uses your existing one. However, if you remove the pet door, you would need to replace it, as you would have an open hole in the screen.

Does it come in more colors?

It only comes in the grey, but you can paint it.

Would this also work on a thin aluminum or plexiglass?

This really is only meant for screen material, so it would not work on solid panels.

Are there different sizes?

Unfortunately, the door only comes in one size.

Will it work on any type of screen?

Yes, but on thicker screen material, it may be necessary to use additional methods to secure it so that it doesn't fall off.

Will this keep bugs out?

Yes, it will keep bugs out since the middle of the flap is actually your screen material.
