With these features, the VPP vinyl pet door is perfect for mild climates. One of the best characteristics of this panel is that it has two locking catches to match up with the original lock from your sliding glass door, which is not prevalent among other panel inserts.

Ideal Installation Instructions (VIP Version Shown)


Ideal VPP Vinyl Patio Pet Door Installation Instructions

Step 1: Remove the existing lock catch plate from your sliding door frame, as it will interfere with your new pet door.

Please Note: Your new pet door comes with two (top and bottom) mounting hangers attached. Please leave these hangers in place.

Step 2: Carefully remove the "H" Top Section from the top of the door. Place your pet door in position as shown. Make sure that the bottom hanger on the door is interlocked with the hanger on the frame.

Step 3: With the pet door in place, mark a pencil line to correspond with the top of the door on the edge of the frame. Remove the pet door panel. Measure down 5 ¼” and make a new pencil line, transferring the line down to the inside of the frame. This new line indicates the bottom edge of the "Top" Hanger. Place the top Hanger in frame and line up the bottom edge with the pencil line. Using the screws provided in Poly Bag #1, attach the hanger to the frame, keeping it centered on the frame.

Step 4: Place the two track fillers underneath the door. Re-hang the IDeal VIP pet door. The fit should now be snug to keep the pet door from moving in the track.

Step 5: Slide the "H" Section onto the top of the door over the springs. A gap of ¼” must be left at the sliding door-side area of the filler section to clear the door seal extrusion pieces.
Height adjustments to the "H" section may be made by cutting along the desired groove with a utility knife.

Please Note: Some doors may require adjustment to the "H" section. You may need to cut it to the required length with a hacksaw.

Step 6: After the "H" Top Section is in place, secure it in the door using two (3⁄16" x 5⁄8") screws provided in Poly Bag #2. Place the screws well away from the glass.

Please Note: This step is optional but will add structural stability and security.

How to Measure Your Sliding Glass Door for a Pet Door


Is the installation easy?

The VPP Vinyl Pet Patio Door does require some drilling and cutting, so it may be difficult if you are not handy. Check out the vinyl patio doors "Installation Instructions" tab for more details.

How do I know if the door will mate with my lock?

Check out our "Installation Instructions" tab for more information on what types of locks it can latch with.

Will it work on aluminum or wood sliders?

It is possible that it can work on doors that are not vinyl as long as the specifications are similar. We suggest looking at the install instructions to get a better idea of the fit.

Does it come in any colors?

The door only comes in white vinyl, but you can paint it.

Does the flap seal well?

It uses the Ideal Original Pet Door, so it is best for areas with a more moderate climate.

Is the glass single or double pane?

The Ideal VPP Vinyl Door has single pane tempered glass. However, the Endura Flap Vinyl Sliding Dog Door has dual-pane insulated glass and a much more weather resistant flap. 

Is the flap clear?

Yes, it is completely clear.

Can big and small pets share? 

It is easy to push open, but the step over could be a bit high if you go with the extra-large size and have small dogs or cats.

Is the flap and frame replaceable?

Yes, the flap and frame assembly is replaceable.

Can it be removed easily?

This is more of a semi-permanent installation. You can take it out if you need, but that would require uninstalling it, so it is not recommended if you need to take your door in and out daily.
