Install the Pet Door Insert in seconds!
Step 1. Simply open your Sliding Door and Insert the Pet Door Insert into the bottom channel of your glass sliding Door. Lean it against wall or sliding door frame.
Step 2. Unscrew the two black turn knobs anticlockwise (maximum 2-3 turns) - this will allow you to extend the adjustable panel into the top channel of your sliding door. Screw the two turn knobs clockwise to lock the extendable panel in position.
Step 3. Included in your delivery package is a weather strip (mohair strip). Insert this into the side channel of your Pet Door Insert that will be in contact with your glass sliding door to prevent any draft. Tip: Insert mohair from top of pet door insert downwards.
THATS ALL - JOB IS DONE!

Install Pet Door Insert in the corner where your fixed glass panel is and leave your sliding opening & locks untouched in original position.

CORNER INSTALLATION & DOUBLE SLIDING DOORS
Install Pet Door Insert in the corner where your fixed glass panel is and leave your sliding door opening & locks untouched in original position.
NOTE: The only additional thing to do will be to install a patio bolt on one sliding door (sliding door which is on the same side where the Pet Door Insert is installed. This is to stop two sliding doors moving once locked together.)
Opening in the middle but no screen door.
Install Patio Pet door insert with wheels at the bottom.
Connect pet door insert to the sliding door where female latch currently sits. Relocate the female latch to the locking braket on pet door insert side and then create a little plate bracket to connect pet door insert to the sliding door frame, using exisiting hole where female latch used to sit so it can all slide across together.

Install Patio Pet door insert with wheels at the bottom.
Connect pet door insert to the sliding door where female latch currently sits. Relocate the female latch to the adaptor on pet door insert side and then create a little plate bracket to connect pet door insert to the sliding door frame, using exisiting hole where female latch used to sit so it can all slide across together.
Watch our adaptor video to see how adaptor is cut and fitted into Sliding Door channel.
TIP: Sometimes you may find you need to install couple of Angle brackets to secure pet door insert into the sliding door frame.
Normally people with wooden door frame or frames that are 4cm wide need to install couple of these.
If your female latch looks like this photo - on left (Hole in a wall latch) Then unfortunately this is the only latch that is not compatible with our locking options: adaptor and locking bracket.
The best way to install pet door insert in these situations is to do installation called: "Corner Installation" or install pet door as a standard installation technique but install couple of Patio Bolts (one at top and bottom) to your sliding door so you can lock.
