Step 1: Prior to purchasing your In the Glass Endura Flap® Pet Door, determine which pane of glass you would like to install the pet door unit in. Next, hire a glazier to measure the width, height, and thickness of the existing pane that the custom-made pane will replace.
Note: It is crucial that these dimensions are accurate, as all of the panes are custom-made and non-returnable. Ask your glazier to determine if you have tinted, Low-E, or clear glass. They should review the detailed information page for more specific instructions.
Step 2: Based on the pane measurements from your glazier, select either Standard (34 x 76 or less) or Oversize (anything larger than 34 x 76) Glass Type for your custom-pane. If it is the Standard Glass Type, the product can be shipped directly to your house. If it is Oversize, it must be shipped to your local glass company or another non-residential business address. Next, select flap size (reference this measurement guide), frame color, clear or Low-E, and step over height.

Why does the price jump so much when I change pet door sizes?
"Through the Glass" units can be pretty expensive because you're getting a custom unit made entirely to your specifications. These items can get expensive because of the quality you are purchasing. You are paying for the quality of materials in the glass, metal, and flap; which will save you on AC/heating bills and require less in replacement parts.
What is Low-e coating?
It stands for Low-emissivity coating. Low-e is applied to the inside of the glass to cut back on the heat and cold transfer. Low outside temperatures combined with moist, warm air inside the house can result in condensation on the inside of any glass window, including that in a patio door. Dual-pane, low-e glass can greatly reduce or eliminate this problem. This feature is especially important in cold climates.
What are the benefits to the "Through the Glass" units?
The "Through the Glass" units do not take up space for you to walk through like a patio panel pet door would. This is a huge benefit if you have a smaller retrofit slider, as now you don’t have to worry about trying to squeeze through sideways. Additionally, the "Through the Glass" doggie doors utilize your existing lock, so you will not have to worry about how to go about securing your home.
In terms of appearance benefits, it also utilizes your current door frame, so you don't have to worry about matching a new frame with your current door and frame. The constantly open sliding glass door will leave you with extra framing blocking your view outside. When in the glass, you do not experience this issue. The Endura Flap® Pet Door included is great for insulation, so it compliments the dual-pane glass in most new sliders.
How long does it take to get the "Through the Glass" model?
It takes about 3-4 weeks for these types of pet doors to be manufactured. Transit time is about 1-5 business days as it ships from the West Coast.

Yes, you can purchase replacement Endura Flaps® on the website, it might sound strange, but you will need to purchase the one for the Door/Wall Mount since that includes the hole plugs. However, they can be a little difficult to replace because you must remove the whole frame in order to get the new flap into place properly.
Can I lock the pet door when I don't want my dog to use it?
The flap itself will be coming with a locking cover. This cover slides on the track of the frame to securely prevent access.
Can I get this shipped to my house instead of the glass company?
