  • Great door review by Craig
    5 5 Great door

    This was replacing we have had in the wall for almost a decade. We had to cut the screws down to work on it but so did the original installers My only suggestion is have a smaller set to make it easy to install....could even include a small caulking kit.

  • Wall Kit Good But Expensive review by Guy
    5 4 Wall Kit Good But Expensive

    We are happy with the Ruff Weather XLarge Doggie Door and Wall Kit. But I was surprised to learn that the Wall Kit was more expensive than the interior and exterior door units. Not sure Wall Kit is complex enough to warrant the high price.

  • Makes wall installations a breeze review by John
    5 5 Makes wall installations a breeze

    The wall kit has snap off parts for varying wall thicknesses. We live in a double wide and the exterior wall thickness is less than stick built. I was pleasantly surprised that the wall kit snap offs had a snap-off for this. Made my life easier.

  • DO NOT BUY THIS JUNK review by JIM

    I was looking for a well built unit, this is a all plastic cheap not well built!

No, it is telescoping so you can adjust it to fit your wall thickness

The tunnel pieces are made of separate parts where one fits into the other to create a range. This will allow the pet door to fit into a wide range without needing to trim the tunnel sections.

It fits walls between 4 3/4" - 5 1/4" or 6 3/4" - 7 1/4"

The easiest way to measure is to measure a door or window in that wall. If you do not have a door or window, you can drill a small hole through the wall to measure.

No, it is not recommended to use this for a wall outside the adjustment range because the plastic is difficult to cut. You can order the Ruff Weather Door Mount and build your own tunnel to accommodate thicker walls.

No, this will only work for Ideal Ruff Weather and Weather Protector pet doors.

It depends on how hand you are. For more detailed information on the installation process, visit the 'Installation Instructions' tab.

This only comes with the tunnel section for the pet door. The actual pet door is available here.

It can in the Small, Medium, and Extra Large. However the rough cut out width for the Super Large is 16 1/4", which could be too wide for most walls. This would me a bit more framing around the opening in the wall to ensure it is stable.

The manufacturer has a 1 year warranty against manufacturer defects.

Yes, four sizes are available and includes all you need to convert your door mount into a wall mount.
