Although this kit is not necessary for all installations, it enhances the overall durability and weather resistance, which is ideal for moderate to extreme climates.

Is this kit necessary?

No, most dog and cat doors will come with all the necessary hardware and weather proofing materials.

Is this a door lock installation kit?

No, but you can purchase locksets, deadbolts, locking covers, or a general door lock kit from our selection of pet door locking covers and security.

What if I am just moving my pet door?

This is great if you are taking out the pet door and moving it to a different location, as you will probably need new weather stripping and sealant.

What is a paneled door?

These are people doors that have raised and lowered parts so the surface is not flap and even.

Are these parts I can get locally?

You should be able to find the same types of items at a local hardware store, if say you only need one part and not the entire kit.

How much weather stripping is included?

Both sizes are 40" long, which is enough for all common door widths.

What are the dimensions of the weather strips?

The large is 1/2" thick and 3/4" wide. The smaller piece is 3/16" thick and 3/8" wide.

How large is the tube of silicone?

You get 2.5 ounces.

How long is the 5/16" drill bit? Can I use it with a bolt plate template?

It is 4 1/2" long and can be used with a bolt plate template.

Does the kit include a tip for the silicone?

Yes there is a tip to make it easier to get into smaller spaces.

Do I need to buy a universal install kit?

If you are buying a new door, typically it will come with what you need to install it. If you are installing in a paneled door or removing and reinstalling a pet door, this kit can be useful.

Can I use this with any pet door?

Yes you can use these installation kits for any install on an uneven surface.

Do I have to use the drill bit?

No, but using a screwdriver can be tedious. If you have a high-speed power tool, you should use it. Even using a pilot bit to start the hole can be helpful.

Does this come with a strike plate or a doorknob for my door?

No, you will need to consult a locksmith about installing additional locks or door handles to your "person" wooden door jamb.

Will a need a mandrel or a self-centering jig to install my pet door?

That will depend on what pet door you have. Every door comes with installation instructions that will list all the tools, such as bi-metal hole saws or circular saws, you will need.
