Installation Instructions

install options for screen fit ideal pet door

ideal pet door for screens

Step 1: Select a screen for installation and remove the window or door screen from its frame.

Step 2: Lay the exterior side of the screen down on a flat, hard surface. Make sure the surface beneath the screen is protected from damage that could be caused by a utility knife.

Step 3: Measure your pet from the floor to the top of their shoulder. The top of the frame should be installed 2” above your pet's shoulders. It is also recommended you install the door at least 2” away from the frame to protect the door.

Step 4: Put the outside of the frame, with the magnet facing the bottom of the door, under the screen. Make sure the arrows at the top of the frame are pointing up. Align the bottom and side edges with the outside of the frame. Use a sharp utility knife to cut horizontal slits in the screen at both top hinge groove locations (Fig. 1).

Step 5: Place the flap assembly in the outside frame with the slide locks facing you. Do this by aligning both hinge posts at the top of the flap assembly with both hinge groove locations at the top of the frame. After, place the inside frame on top of the outside frame and align the cavities and posts (Fig. 2). Once aligned, use a mallet to carefully tap the frame together all around, sealing all gaps between the frames. This secures the flap assembly in place and holds the frames to the screen.

Step 6: Hold the flap up and cut the screen around the inner portion of the door with a sharp utility knife (Fig. 3). Trim away any excess screen from the inside, as it prevents the flap assembly from swinging freely (Fig. 4).

Step 7: Reinstall the screen panel into window or door frame.
