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.

DOUBLE SLIDING DOORS - Middle Installation with WHEELS
WHEELS at bottom / MIDDLE INSTALLATION
You can get wheels $40 to install at the bottom inside of our pet door insert and wheels will make the pet door insert slide with your sliding doors.
You place the pet door insert in your glass sliding door channel and relocate your existing female latch to either a locking bracket or adaptor.
And then you need to connect pet door insert to the sliding door frame with one screw, we will send you a little plate to connect the two together - one screw into the plate into an existing hole where female latch used to be and one screw through the plate on vertical extrusion of the pet door insert.
IMPORTANT TO CHECK THESE MEASUREMENTS:
- How wide is your bottom track of your glass sliding door?
In order for wheels to work, your bottom track needs to be 2.8cm or more. If your bottom track is less than 2.8cm wide, wheels will not work and you will need to request for us to send you 2 little legs to go at the bottom inside of the pet door insert.
- How wide are your both vertical side channels? They need to be 2cm or more in width.
If you are not sure if your doors are ok and compatible for installation and locking, please send us some photos of your doors including a photo of both locks and a photo of your bottom track too.
Please hold a measuring tape inside bottom channel and both side vertical channels and take a photo and email us so we can check and confirm all will be ok and compatible for installation and locking to your door.
