Works but..

This works great to keep the cold air out, but the rubber parts in between the panels wear out pretty quickly if you have more active dogs. FYI you can only get the parts to replace that from the manufacturer

Excellent product that fits perfectly

I ordered this product to replace a worn out door that was 9 years old. The new door fits perfectly, was easy to install and is working fine.

Great but a bit pricey!

The replacement part was perfect fit and went in without any trouble at all. It's great to be able to replace just the flap and the piece around it rather than the whole door. But replacing just the flap wasn't an option this time because the insulation was all worn out.

rubber part between flaps wears out very quickly

The rubber flap holding the flaps together deteriorates within a year. Have to buy whole new flap which is not cheap. I have gone through 2 in 18 months. Worst doggie door I have ever purchased. Editor's note: You can purchase replacement rubber pieces directly from the manufacturer, Ideal Pet Products. They also have a 1 year warranty.

Great product

I have the one that installs in a sliding glass door. It looks like it was made for that spot perfectly. I have had 3 different brand of dog doors and this one is by far the best. The vinyl flap type never lasted with my dogs as they run through it full force. This one lasts way longer and doesn't fly open on windy days. They also have great customer service.
