How do I know this is the flap I need?
Before ordering, check the logo or writing on your flap (if any). Ideal Pet Products will have their logo, name, and sometimes the model of the door in the center of opening or on the pet door frame at the bottom. If not you can double check if the size is embossed on the bottom near the magnet bar on either side. These replacement flaps will work for both the ruff weather wall kit and the ruff weather door mount (and the "protector" models).
Are there any other flaps that are the same size I can use instead?
The ruff weather dog door replacement parts are not interchangeable with other brands or models even with matching pet door sizes, so you will need to order the same kind of flap replacement or part replacement.
I have had smoky or tinted colored flappers before, is this only in clear?
Yes! We carry a clear flexible version so that the dog and cat door has maximum visibility. It's still the same energy efficient doggy door flap design.
What I am measuring does not match your size chart, what size flap do I get?
We suggest uninstalling one of the double vinyl flaps so you can see the size in the top right corner. This will help you order the correct size. They also have the size of the flap embossed on the lower corners of the flap right above the magnet bar.
Do I have to take out the entire door to replace the flap?
No! You need only to unscrew the bar that holds the flap for the pet door wall kit or door kit. Your entire outer frame does not need to be removed. Once the bar is removed, you can then discard your old flap, and insert the new one. A screwdriver is the only tool you need.
What size is the ideal super large ruff weather replacement flap?
Ruff weather replacement door flaps for the super large door are 15"w x 23 1/2"h.
Can I get just the cover guard for the Ruff Weather?
Unfortunately, we do not carry the Ideal ruff weather pet door locking cover as a separate purchase. The ruff weather cover needs to be purchased from the manufacturer.
Our bar at the top needs to be replaced, where can I get one?
This is another item we do not carry. Please check with the manufacturer for this part as well.
How long will this replacement last?
A flap's life depends on the usage and weather exposure. Flaps used by an energetic, large dog will wear more quickly than those used by a small, mellow dog. These vinyl flaps are a great product for longevity, tending to last longer than some other flap materials. In the event your flap gets dirty, use a clean rag with fresh water.
Can I attach extra magnets at some point?
The ruff weather replacement doors are not made to add additional magnets. There are dual-flaps to provide better insulation than a single flap door, serving the same purpose as additional magnets.
My flap reads 10 1/2 x 17 not 9 3/4 x 17?
They changed what was embossed on the flap, so the 9 3/4 by 17 would be the ruff weather replacement parts you need.
What if I get the wrong size?
If this is the case, please contact us so we can arrange a return and get you the correct one. Please be aware this item has a 30 day return policy.
I need Ruff Weather dog door replacement flaps but the flaps are missing. How do I know what size to order?
