Description

Would you rather not cut holes in any walls or doors inside your house? Do you have a sliding glass door with aluminum frame leading out to the patio? Then the Fast Fit Pet Patio Door™ with all of its customizable options is right for you.

Features of the Ideal Fast Fit
  • Single pane glass is lightweight for quick and easy install, and easy removal when necessary.
  • Since this panel will not mate with an existing slider door lock, Ideal supplies a pin lock. This does require drilling holes, so if you're a renter and do not want to put holes in the slider, then we suggest using the old "broomstick in the track method" or a Charley Bar.
  • Clear, vinyl flap is easy for pets to learn to use and push open.
  • Solid magnetic strip at the bottom of the flap to help keep the flap closed when not in use.
  • Customizable options for the perfect fit for your slider and your pet.
  • Aluminum frame designed for sliding glass door tracks at least 7/8" thick.


  • Perfect Time for an Ideal Fast Fit
  • If you are on a budget and want a pet door for your sliding glass door, a Fast Fit is the best choice.
  • For pets that may be timid or struggle with pushing through a heavier flap, the vinyl flap in the Fast Fit is easy to learn!
  • This is a great option if you need something temporary for a rental home where you can't drill holes in the track.
  • If you travel often and need a door that you can take in or out.
  • Great solution for storm prone areas where you need to be able to remove it quickly to secure your home.

    FAQs
    Can this be used with vinyl sliding glass doors? Generally yes. The big difference between the two types of sliding glass doors is the thickness or width of the track. As long as your track is at least 7/8"wide, this can fit your patio door. If you have a taller sliding glass door, we recommend that you either add shims or toenail the panel in for added stability. If you have concerns you can email customerservice@petdoors.com with some photos of your track and we can let you know.

    Does the Ideal Fast Fit pet doors for sliding foors require tools for installation? The panel doesn't, it is meant to be fairly easy to install so you can take it out if you need. Although you will need tools if you want to install the locking mechanism as it requires drilling holes into the frame of your slider. You can avoid this by locking your slider against the panel using a Charley Bar or dowel in the track.

    How do I know what size I should get for my pet? We recommend that you measure your pet using the methods described in this video.

    Will I still be able to use my sliding glass door agter it is installed? When the pet door is installed, you will lose some space to walk through. To make sure that you have enough room, we recommend that you check the Overall Width of the size that you want, especially when purchasing this panel in the Super Large flap size. If you are looking for an option that won't obstruct the use of your sliding glass door, we would recommend the Pet Door Guys - "In The Glass" units.
