Installation Instructions

Step 1: Prep Your Door.

Detach your door from the hinges or sliding track and lay it flat on your work table or floor. Make sure your door frame, mesh screen, and work surface are clean.

Step 2: Apply the First Bottom Layer of Protective Tape.

Place the loose end of the protective tape flush into one of the bottom corners of the frame. Then slowly roll the rest of the tape roll along the bottom edge of the screen in a straight line, applying light pressure to adhere it to the screen. When you reach the opposite edge of the bottom frame, cut off the tape and press it into the corner.

The tape should be on the screen mesh only. Avoid overlapping the tape or applying it in multiple parts.

Step 3: Measure Your Pet.

Use a tape measure to find the height of your pet. Measure from their front paws to the highest point on their shoulders. Add at least 4” to that height in order to ensure that your dog’s back does not scrape against the top of the screen flap.

Step 4: Mark the Height of the Door Flap.

og’s height on the door frame from the button of the frame (mark #1) with a pencil. Add another mark 1” above this mark (mark #2). This is your allowance for when you cut the screen off of the door frame in Step #7.

Tip: use masking tape to give yourself a surface to write on.

Step 5: Apply the First Side Layer of Protective Tape.

Apply tape up each side of the door frame, repeating the same steps as Step #2. Make sure that the top of the tape is aligned with mark #2.

Do not overlap the bottom end of the tape with the protective tape already lining the bottom edge of the door.

Step 6: Apply Second Layer of Bottom and Side Protective Tape.

Flip the door over and repeat Steps #2 and #4. Make sure that this layer of tape is aligned as close as possible to the first layer.

Step 7: Remove the Clear Liner.

Flip the door over so that the flat side is down once more. Apply pressure to the tape again to ensure that it adheres firmly. Remove the clear liner on both layers of tape.

Step 8: Remove Screen From Door Frame.

Starting from mark #1 on one side, cut through the screen with a sharp blade. Go along the entire edge of the tape until the screen mesh is cut from the door frame. Do not cut above your starting point from the other side.

Do not cut through the tape. Only cut the screen mesh between the tape and the door frame.

Step 9: Reinforce the Door Flap.

Apply a “patch” of tape horizontally over the top split on the screen, overlapping with the already applied tape and the door frame. Do this for both sides of the flap.

Flip the door over and repeat. Remove the clear liner on the patch.

Step 10: Clean Up Edges.

Use your scissors to trim the frayed edges of the screen that is peaking out from the tape. Be careful not to cut the tape itself.

Optional: You can also remove the spline and excess material along the door frame that kept the screen in place, trimming it with scissors close to where the protective layer of tape meets the door frame.

Step 11: Remove the Spline (Optional)

For a cleaner look, peal the spline and other excess material around the frame off, trimming it with scissors close to where the protective layer of the tape meets the door frame.

Step 12: Attach Magnets.

Tape one-half of each pair an equal distance apart to the bottom edge of the door frame, ensuring that the attraction side is facing the door flap.

Attach the other half of the magnet pair to the bottom flap, lining them up with each of the door frame magnets. Make sure that the attraction side is facing the door frame so that the magnets will stick together.

Step 13: Test the Magnets.

Test the door flap to make sure that the magnets stick together after use by pushing the flap out and letting it fall back into place. If the magnets do not click back together, realign them so that they will match up.

Step 14: Install the Door.

Now that your DIY door flap is complete, you can reinstall your door back into its doorway.
