What door is this flap compatible with?
How can I tell if I have the Ultra-Flex or the weather pet door Draft Stopper?
They're the same product of pet supplies - just different names.
Is this the same as the air gap Airseal pet door?
The UltraFlex dog door and the Airseal are the same.
Does this work for the door in the VIP Patio Panel?
Yes, that is an Ultra-Flex/draft stopper door in the panel.
Does the flap come with the metal rod?
No, the Ideal Ultra-Flex draft stopper only comes with the flap. We don't carry any other Draft Stopper Ideal replacement part.
Can I purchase the rubber connectors in between the flaps separately?
Unfortunately, we only sell the Ultra-Flex replacement flaps. To get Ultra-Flex flexible gasket material or other Ultra-Flex flap door parts, please contact the manufacturer, Ideal Pet Products.
Can I put this in other Ideal Pet Doors to get better insulation value?
No, it will not attach to any other model.
How does this flap work?
The three rigid chew-proof flap segments are divided by a flexible gasket material to make the flap more flexible.
What is the flap material?
Is this the right replacement for my EMCO storm door?
Some storm doors with pet doors pre-installed did use this door, so as long as you are pretty sure you have the Ultra-Flex it should work.
How do I get my dog to stop chewing off the rubber connectors?
You can apply some sort of bitter deterrent on the hinges so that your dog will not continue to chew them off. (Make sure to do some research to ensure the deterrent is safe for your pet to consume!)
How often will I need to replace the rubber connectors?
This depends entirely on how active your pet is as well as your climate. Areas that are colder tend to turn the rubber connectors rigid and brittle, making it more susceptible to breaking. If you have a very active pet that uses the door a lot or goes through it with a large force, you may also need to replace the connectors more often.
Will this work with the Ideal Pet Products Original Pet Door with Telescoping Frame?
No, this will not work any other Ideal model door.
I need to replace my 3-piece Ideal dog door flap.
It sounds like the Ideal replacement door flap you need is for the Ultra-Flex / Draft Stopper. It is a uniquely designed flap and you can verify the measurements to confirm it is the correct replacement flap.
