screen door doggie door - screen door for dogs
  • Remove your screen door from its hinges or track and place it on a flat, clean spot.
  • If your screen door is torn in any place, you must replace it before installing your pet flap.

Step 2 Measure Your Pet

cat screen door or sliding screen door with pet door DIY kit
  • Measure your pet’s height from the floor to the tallest portion of their shoulders (their haunches).
  • For further instructions, check out our Measure Your Pet guide.
  • Apply painter’s tape to the outside face of your screen door’s frame so that you have an easy surface to write on.
  • Make two marks on your screen door frame. Mark #1 should be 4” above your pet’s height. Mark #2 should be 5” above your pet’s height.
  • (Example: For a 23” tall dog make a mark at 27” and 28”)
  • Step 3 Attach the Screen Magnets

    • Turn the screen so that the outside face is up.
    • Remove the double sided tape liner on the screen magnets. Attach the screen magnets, one for each of the two bottom corners of the screen.
    • Leave a little room between the magnets and the screen door frame so that the magnets do not hit the frame when your pet uses the door.
    • Make sure the magnets are facing up to you.

    Step 4 Apply Bottom Layer of Tape

    • Measure out a piece of protective tape to fit on the bottom edge of the screen, overlapping the lips of the screen magnets. Cut it with sharp scissors and remove the liner. Carefully apply with only light pressure until you’re confident in it’s placement.
    • The tape should be on the screen mesh only. Do not cover the magnet faces.

    Step 5 Apply Tape to Sides of Screen

    • Apply another strip of tape along the right side of the door, starting on the upper lip of the screen magnet to Mark #2. Use the same application technique here that you used in Step 4.
    • Make sure the tape does not touch the screen door frame.
    • Repeat on the left side of the screen.

    Step 6 Tape Opposite Side of Screen

    • Flip your screen door over so that you are looking at the underside of the tape.
    • Apply tape over the backside of the bottom edge and sides, being careful not to overlap or touch the frame. Make sure that this layer is aligned as close as possible to the first layer.

    Step 7 Remove Screen Mesh 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 mark #1 on either side.
    • Do not cut through the tape. Only cut the screen mesh between the tape and the door frame.

    Step 8 Reinforce Screen Flap

    • Apply a patch of tape horizontally over the top split of the screen, connecting the tape to the screen frame. The patch should overlap the side tape and extend halfway onto your frame. Do this for both sides of the screen.
    • Flip the door over and repeat.

    Step 9 Reinstall Screen Door

    • Install the screen door back into the doorway.
    • Alternatively, you can just stand the door upright.

    Step 10 Attach the Frame Magnets

    • Remove the liner on the tape for the frame magnets. Allow the frame magnets to attach to the screen magnets face to face.
    • With the flap hanging, apply a small amount of tension and attach the sticky side of the frame magnets there so that the two magnet faces connect when the flap closes.
    • You can screw the frame magnet into your screen frame for additional support.

    installation

    Our door is installed and functioning as planned. I can see why it has had mixed reviews: there are several places in the process to make fatal errors. Strict adherence to the instructions is essential. One suggestion: align the position of the screen magnets with the frame magnet attached, or even mount the frame magnet first and then align the screen magnet. Also specify exactly where to cut the screen mesh.

    It works but it isn’t pretty

    It works but it isn’t pretty. It took me about 45 minutes to create/install the door. It seems to work well and the dogs like it but it looks much better in the pictures than it does in person.

    Meh

    Not very effective. Basically does the same thing as cutting the screen. Could be better

    EASY to install and EASY to use

    WE bought the screen conversion kit for our dog door. My 13 year old chihuahua will not use it....stubborn I suppose. My 2 yr old beagle FLIES through it and she learned it in an hour. Very sturdy, and the magnetic flap keeps it sealed yet easy to push open. We would buy again.
