If you have a small to extra-large pet door, choose "Up to Extra Large" in the dropdown menu. If your door is any size smaller than the extra-large, you will need to trim the dog door weatherstripping to fit accordingly.

Once you receive your new Ruff Weather dog door replacement parts, make sure to clean the area in which you are going to place the new weatherstripping, as it will not stick and create a weather-tight door seal if you do not.

Can I use these new door weatherstrips for any Ideal door?

I have a small door. Which size would I choose?

In this case, you would choose the "Up to Extra Large," then trim it down with shears to fit.

Is the weatherstripping for Ideal Ruff Weather doors easy to install?

You would need to remove the old weatherstripping in the channel (it is only secured with sticky tape). Then you can peel off the backing on the new strips and stick them in place. Overall, this is a home improvement project that is easy to DIY. To learn how to weatherstrip your door, check out the installation instructions tab.

How do I get the old residue off so this sticks properly?

You can use Goof Off or Goo Gone to remove any sticky leftovers from your old door weatherstripping.

Will this take care of both doors?

The kit comes with four pieces of weatherstripping, so enough for both vinyl door flaps on the pet door.

Can I just get the fuzzy part?

No. They come as a kit, so it would be both pieces.

Are the replacement flaps available?

Yes, you can purchase Ideal Ruff Weather replacement flaps.

Can I just get the locking cover for my exterior door?

We do not carry the locking cover, so you would need to purchase them through Ideal directly.

Are there magnets you can add to this door?

No, you would not be able to add extra magnets or fasteners to make it seal better.

Can I get the bar the flap screws into?

Yep, you can get that through Ideal directly.

Can I use this for any Ideal door?

Weatherstripping for the Ideal Ruff Weather model cannot be used with other models or manufacturers. It also cannot be used on non-pet door products, such as garage doors or door jambs and doorstop for people doors.

I need to replace the weatherstripping on my Ruff Weather Ideal frame. Do you sell it?

Yes, we do. Be sure to choose the correct size. There is one from "Small to Extra Large," and the other is for "Super Large" only.
