Installation Steps:

  • Step 1: If you have not yet measured your pet, be sure to measure them according to this measurement guide.
  • Step 2: Make a mark on your door at your pet’s shoulder height.
  • Step 3: We recommend removing the door for easiest installation. Apply the provided template to the door, lining up the given line with your mark. Ensure that there is 3” between the bottom of the door template and the bottom of the door. Tape down the template.
  • Step 4: Using a drill and drill bit, drill holes into the four corners, following the template.
  • Step 5: Beginning in one of the four holes you just drilled, insert your jigsaw blade and cut along the template lines. Remove the template and the cut out piece.
  • Step 6: Set the inside frame in place, then mark the 4 holes in the frame. Remove the frame and drill the holes at the marks with a 1/4 “ drill bit.
  • Step 7:  From the underside, line up the outside frame. Using one hand to hold the frames together, secure the two pieces with the plastic hardware provided. Once all 4 screws are in, tighten it down. Do not overtighten.
  • Step 8Remove excess plastic screw from the outside frame with wire cutters.
  • Step 9:  You can now remount your door with the newly installed pet door.

Optional: Caulk for enhanced weather resistance.
