  • Remembers up to 32 different chips or tags
  • Flap size is perfect for cats and very small dogs
  • Pet door scans your pet’s embedded chip used for identification (not included with the door and must be purchased from your vet and implanted at a scheduled office visit). If your pet is not yet microchipped, you can by an additional collar key until you make the trip to the vet.
  • Pet door operates off 4 AA batteries. Typical battery life is 6 months
  • Features a low battery indicator light. Note: The door will revert to the locked position if the batteries fail, preventing any inside or outside access.

  • my cats love it raccoons hate it review by jody
    5 5 my cats love it raccoons hate it

    My cats love going in and out the raccoons hate that they can no longer come in. The quality is great. The door works as explained my cats do not even have to wait to push the door open the door is unlocked for them by the time they try. I definitely recommend this door if you have raccoon issues. Great product.

  • great review by Amber
    5 5 great

    I have raccon issues so bad. This door is a godsend. The raccoons cannot open it. I heard them trying the other night and watched from upstairs as they tried and no matter how hard they tried they could not get into this door. I am very grateful my cat has a high quality, raccoon proof door that I can rely on.

  • Just what I needed! review by Katherine J
    5 5 Just what I needed!

    I noticed a lot of the electronic cat doors only controlled who could either come in or go out.....but this product does both! Now we can make sure the indoor cats don't go out and make sure that no unwanted critters get in either. Super easy no-tools installation too! Love it.

  • Great combination review by Wandita
    5 5 Great combination

    Since I rent, I can't install a pet door in a wall or wooden door. This was the perfect solution since no tools were needed to install it in my sliding glass door track. The panel and pet door does ship in two boxes, so you do have to put them together. The Dual Scan Sure Flap cat door is great because it is raccoon proof but it lets my cat in and out. I also like the function of keeping a kitten in, when I get one, but letting the adult cat outside.

  • wish it was bigger review by Lea
    5 4 wish it was bigger

    Wanted to keep the new kitten inside, and let the adult cat out. It is a fairly tight squeeze, but serves the purpose.

  • good review by Megan
    5 4 good

    I like that I can use a cat door without doing any damage to my house. I am using this because I have an inside cat that needs to stay inside while the other 2 cats can go outside. The only thing I don't like about the product is that the opening is quite small.

Installation Instructions for the Thermo Panel 2e with DualScan Cat Flap



All Panels

1x Foam Weather Strip • 1x Center Post Weather Seal Draft Stopper

1 Piece Pet Door

1x Panel Pet Door • 1x Sliding Door Clamp

2 Piece Pet Door

1x Top Glass Panel Section • 1x Bottom Flap Section

4x Hex screws • 1x Hex wrench • 1x Threshold mount deadbolt w/screws



The aluminum, vertical panel has a patented ‘Adjustable Step-Over’ feature which permits adjusting the height of the flap to the most comfortable fit for your pet. Generally, the top of the flap should be positioned to be at least 1” (2,5 cm) above the top of the pet’s shoulder (the ‘withers’). If the factory setting is not suitable, please adjust it before proceeding. If the current setting is suitable, or you have the vinyl panel, proceed to step 3.



1A. Two-piece panels: Simply slide the pieces up and out from the bottom half of your panel to rearrange. Loosen a bottom screw if the pieces are too snug to move.

One-piece panels: Lay the entire panel on a flat surface (like the floor). Using a #2 Phillips head screwdriver, remove the bottom side-screws, and loosen the next upper screws one turn. Screws were tightly installed to hold the panel together during shipping; a drill is recommended*.

*If you do not have a Phillips head drill bit skinny enough to fit, let us know and we’ll send you one for free.

2B. One-piece panels: Once the bottom screws have been removed and the next upper side-screws loosened, the Pet Door Assembly and spacers can be removed by sliding the sections down and out of the panel. 

2C. Replace the spacers and the Pet Door Assembly by sliding them back in a different order to achieve the desired height. You can move the spacer below or above the flap to raise or lower the flap height.

The order of the pieces is important! The piece on the bottom needs to always be at the bottom, as that is where the screws attach. 

When finished, replace the bottom side-screws and tighten the next upper-side screws for one piece panels and skip to step 4. For two-piece panels, you can now assemble the patio panel!

Note on flap height and pet size:

A lower step-over height is easier for pets to navigate. However, if the top of the flap is low enough that the pet needs to crouch to get through their pet door, they can injure themselves and possibly cause the pet door to malfunction. If your pet door does not sit at a comfortable height for your pet, you may need a larger size flap. 


(if you have a single piece panel, please proceed to step 4)


3A. Align the aluminum connectors extending from the bottom flap panel section with the top glass panel section. Press the aluminum connectors into the holes at the bottom of the top glass panel section. Ensure locking cover & thumb screws are on the same side!

3B. Gently tap the bottom surface of the panel against the ground to completely insert the connectors. Protect hard surfaces to prevent scratching. The components of the panel are designed to slide together very tightly.

3C. Fasten the two panels together using the four stainless steel hex head screws found in the panel packaging. Use the hex wrench to tighten screws so the two halves of the door are pulled together. 

Note: Screw holes may look misaligned; this is intentional to ensure a tight fit. The panels will squeeze together as the screws are tightened.

4. Loosen the thumb screws at the top of the pet panel. This allows the spring mechanism to move freely up and down.

5. To insert the panel pet door into the top track, push up against the spring mechanism and swing the bottom of the panel up and over the threshold. Seat the panel on top of the small guide rail in the track. If you can’t quite get it in the track, try swinging in from the outside as the outside track wall may be shorter.

You want to put the pet door in your track before applying any weather-stripping to ensure it fits! If it fits well, move on to the next step. See our tips at the end of these steps if you have trouble!

6. Once you’re sure the panel fits, remove the panel from the frame and lay it on its side on the ground. Apply the foam weather-stripping by peeling back the paper and exposing the adhesive. Unroll it along the edge of the panel, pressing to ensure it adheres. Install on both sides, trim to fit with scissors. 

7. The center post weather seal strip (draft stopper) should be installed on the inside of the home. It can install on either the back edge of the sliding door panel or the leading edge of the stationary panel. This strip prevents air leaking between the sliding glass door and the stationary panel. Trim with scissors as needed. Clean the edge of your patio door with rubbing alcohol before installing to assure a good seal.



Since you cannot lock your sliding glass door to your panel pet door, we have provided you with an alternative locking method to secure your home:

Doors over 80 1⁄4” (203,8 cm) Tall

Installing the threshold mount deadbolt lock: For doors manufactured with the glass slider on the inside track, the lock can usually be installed on the back of the slider using the mounting screws provided. For doors manufactured with the slider on the outside, the lock is installed on the leading edge of the stationary panel.

Drill a 3⁄16” (4,8 mm) hole into the frame opposite the steel deadbolt lock. This hole MUST be 3⁄4” (1,9 cm) away

from the inside edge of the door’s frame to avoid drilling into the glass. Drilling into the glass will cause the glass to shatter.

Doors under 80 1⁄4” (203,8 cm) tall

Installing the sliding door clamp: This clamp has a screw which tightens by hand to prevent the sliding door from moving beyond the clamp’s placement. For doors manufactured with the glass slider on the inside track, the lock can usually be installed on the door’s raised track.






1x Panel

1x Foam Weather Strip

1x Center Post Weather Seal Draft Stopper

Separate Box:

1x Microchip pet/cat door



You will need to do a couple extra steps to install your SureFlap Microchip Pet Door, Cat Flap or DualScan through your panel. The SureFlap ships in a separate box, and before you open it you should first test to make sure your panel will work in your door or window. Follow steps 1 & 2 from the Panel Installation Instructions.

Remove your SureFlap from its box, and follow the directions included to program the pet door. You can then proceed with the instructions below!




Insert SureFlap Cat Flap into hole

1.  After testing the panel to make sure it works in your window or door, and testing that the SureFlap will work with your pets, you are ready to attach the pet door to the hole in the panel!

Screw SureFlap Cat Door in place

2. Find the middle length screws in the SureFlap box. The Pet Door version uses 4 screws, while the Cat Flap and Dual Scan will only utilize 2 screws.

Thumbscrews should be on the same side as the controls of your SureFlap. Installing your SureFlap with the controls on the outside of your home will damage the pet door and void SureFlap’s warranty.

3. The trim frame and screws will go on the ouside of the panel. Place the side with the locking controls on the inside of the panel. The controls will need to be on the same side as the thumbscrews. You can then follow the remaining instructions for either the vertical or horizontal panels.



You might choose to secure your pet door in your track with screws. This can be done by drilling screws at an angle in the top and bottom tracks. We recommend doing this from the outside to minimize damage to the sliding glass door frame. One-way screws will prevent tampering or removal of the panel from the outside.  



Some stationary panels can be unfastened and moved over to one side so that you can install the pet door panel between the jamb and stationary panel. Avoid damaging your sliding glass door by checking that your door can move and that you can reinstall it properly before trying to uninstall the unit.

You will still lose space in your slider to move through, however you will be able to use your existing sliding door lock to secure your home. Installing your pet door this way is also great if you already have an alarm system in place. If your sliding glass door slides on the outside track, using an alternative lock might not be possible so this allows you to still lock your door.
