  • Works well but my cat is a bit fat review by Todd
    5 4 Works well but my cat is a bit fat

    I was able to install the cat flap into the panel easily (they ship separately so there is some assembly required). It stops any animal by my cat from entering the house which is great. What isnt so great is that my cat is......well, lets just say he likes his treats, and it is a bit of a tight fit for the flap which is smaller than I thought i was going to be.

  • Just what we needed! review by Ron
    5 4 Just what we needed!

    Super easy to install - spring loaded top makes the panel fit in perfectly into our sliding glass door height-wise. Cat is still getting used to it, but we love the chipped function - no collar for her!

  • Good combination review by Colby
    5 4 Good combination

    Heavy duty panel and nice cat door that works with microchip or optional collar key. I recommend having your cat chipped for many reasons. You do have to install the cat door into the panel since it ships in a separate box.

  • Works good! review by Katldy
    5 4 Works good!

    Easy to set up and program the door. Fit is a little wiggly in wider track, but made it work.

  • Great door but small for fat cats review by steph
    5 4 Great door but small for fat cats

    This was a really great cat door and I got it for my 2 cats to share. My chubby 16 lb cat had some trouble squeezing through the small opening so I am returning this for a larger size. The customer service staff here made this process pretty easy with free returns. One thing to note is that the pet door does not come installed in the panel so some assembly necessary. Despite this, the installation was pretty easy and I was able to do it in about ~30 minutes. Highly recommend for smaller cats!

Installation Instructions for the Thermo Panel 2e with Microchip 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.
