ADAPTOR U CHANNEL for Glass Sliding Door Only

CORNER INSTALLATION where fixed glass panel is

Another way you may like to consider to install your pet door insert is to install pet door in a corner where your fixed glass panel is.

You will need to look for screws that are holding your fixed glass panel in place, unscrew them – and slide the fixed glass panel & fit a pet door insert in a corner, then secure the fixed glass panel in a new position with a few new screws at the top where fixed panel is.

Doing installation this way means you do not need a locking bracket or an adapter and your main entry and locking remains untouched.

When you move house, you just undo everything and put it back in original position.

Some sliding doors have a cover at the bottom track. If you have a cover at the bottom, you will need to pop it out (either leave it out, or cut the cover to be shorter) so you can slide the fixed panel across.

DOUBLE SLIDING DOORS – Middle Installation

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:

Please measure:

– 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.   2 legs will not allow pet door insert to slide but it will ground the pet door insert into your bottom track, and you will need to fix one sliding door (where female latch is), and have other sliding door with handle male latch to slide open and closed.

– 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.
