For a bit of help to decide how to choose between the Patio Pet Door for renters from $229 and the $289 Max package refer to the questions/checklist points below. If you get stuck feel free to call on 0431 908 929.

 

How do I choose the correct pet door package for my needs?

Have a read through the questions below to help you figure out whether you are better off buying the pet door on its own or whether you actually need the pet door + the screen door adapter package. Any questions, feel free to call on 0431 908 929. It can be a bit confusing!

 

 

1. Do you own the home or do you rent?

- If you own your home, then the MAX package is a popular choice because it offers the maximum features all for the sake of leaving two small 3mm diameter holes inside your door frame. However, continue to read the points below to be sure as the Pet Door on its own may still suit your needs.  

- If you rent and you are open to leaving a few 3mm diameter screw holes inside the wall frame that are unlikely to be noticed &/or are ok leaving one screw hole inside the top track &/or are ok with putting a screw under the existing catch plate, then consider the MAX package and continue reading.

- If you rent and do not want to screw any holes, then you could consider getting the pet door on its own. However, you still have a choice between both options so keep reading below.

 

2. Do you want to be able to use BOTH the glass door and the fly screen/security door?

- If you DO want to be able to use BOTH the sliding glass door AND the screen/security door to let air in to the house without letting the flies and mosquitos in, then you would need the MAX package. The universal pet door frame is needed to fit both your sliding door and security/flyscreen in to the pet door system. 

The screen or security door can not usually be used functionally with the pet door on its own. Why? Because the screen door needs to be left open to let the flap swing in and out of the house and the pet door tends to only fit in the glass door track. So, the insects fly in to the house in the gap between the semi-open screen door and the pet door frame. Some people try swapping the pet door between the glass door and screen door tracks but it is not insect proof because the pet door won't fit inside the flyscreen door frame properly without leaving gaps. Many find continually shifting the pet door laboursome after a short while. The security door will not work with the pet door on its own because there is nothing to secure the lock mechanisms to. 

- If you DO NOT care about using the security/flyscreen door, then consider the pet door on its own, you may not need the MAX package but continue reading the next points to be sure.

 

3. Do you want to be able to use the existing locks so that your sliding/security doors lock as per usual and/or do you need to access the house from the outside?

- If you want to use your existing sliding door locks and also want to lock your security door and/or use your screen door, then you would need the MAX package because the universal pet door frame is needed.

- If you need to gain access to the house through the sliding door from the outside, then you would need the MAX package to be able to use the existing keyed sliding door lock mechanism and/or the keyed security door mechanism.

- If you do not care about using the existing locks and don't need to access the house via the sliding doors and you do not have/need a security/flyscreen door, then the pet door on its own will be fine but read the last point to decide for sure.

 

4. Is the pet door going on a main living area or in a laundry that you never see?

 - If the pet door is going on a main living area, then consider the MAX package as it will allow you to use both doors as per normal: it hides all the gaps, it is secure, and it can let air in to the house without the mosquitos/flies/insects.

- If it is going in a laundry that you never see, then the pet door on its own may be fine unless you need to use a clothes dryer re the point below. You just need to come up with a way to lock the sliding door against the pet door such as using a patio bolt, dowel cut to length or window clamp.

 

3. If it is going in a laundry, do you use a clothes dryer?

- If you use your dryer then you may want to opt for the MAX package because you will be able to use your screen door to let the hot air and condensation out of the room in colder weather, which will prevent your laundry getting all wet (and getting the pet beds mouldy from the condensation from the dryer). 

- If you do not use a dryer, then the pet door on its own will be fine provided you come up with another way to lock your sliding door against the pet door (e.g., patio bolt, dowel cut to length or window clamp).

 

4. What if I don't have access to anyone handy or can not afford to pay for someone who is handy to fit the MAX package?

- If you can not afford to pay someone to do fit the MAX package for you (hacksaw and drill needed) then you could get the pet door on its own and just to get a window clamp or get a piece of dowel cut to length at a hardware to put behind your sliding door track to wedge it against the pet door. 

 

5. Can I still buy the MAX package if I rent and do not want to drill/screw any holes?

- You can still fit the MAX package without screwing to utilise both your glass and screen door functioning. You can just come up with another way to lock the sliding door against the pet door (e.g., patio bolt, dowel cut to length or window clamp) but with the universal door frame on, you will also be able to use your screen door as well.

 

Your pet could be free to leave you in peace by Xmas- just like Frankie below!

Please note this door is a very high quality product and our frame has been designed to the same specifications as sliding glass door frames used in cyclone regions of Northern Australia!

 

We think detailed information will benefit you more than leaving out specifications, measurements, etc. Please follow the measurement guidelines- it is all fairly straightforward and can help you buy a pet door to suit your pet and/or sliding door system.

 

Colours:

Selecting the right size flap for your pet: 

It is best not to guess the size of flap you will need but take a few minutes to measure your dog and then refer to the table below. Most people overestimate the size of the door that they need. The weight of the dog is also irrelevant- it is the height and width of the pet that matters when choosing the correct flap.

FirstTesting the Flap Width: Measure the approximate shoulder width of your pet. The Medium flap is 22cm wide, so open your sliding door 22cm and see if your pet can walk through (food may help as a motivator).

Second:Testing the Flap Height: Measure your pet from the ground to the top of their shoulder blades. The Medium flap is 41cm off the ground. Ideally your pet’s shoulder height should be 1-2cm shorter than the top of the flap.

What measurements do I need to check to see if the pet door will fit my sliding door?

1. Measure:

a. The distance between the very inside bottom of your floor track to the bottom edge of the top track. This height needs to be 199cm or more.

b. The distance between the very inside bottom of your floor track to the very inside top of your top track. This needs to 211cm or less.

Please note we no longer make custom height doors.

We had shopped around a fair bit trying to find a door that was easy to install but not going to break the bank. I came across Modern Pet Doors on one of my searches and like how easy the product was to use. The product lived up to our expectations as the door was in place inside 20 minutes! I would definitely recommend the product to others.

Lily loves her door...
5 Stars

My kelpie Lily learned to use her new pet door almost straightaway. She really seems to really enjoy the autonomy the door gives her, and even uses the pet door when the adjacent human door is open. Delivery was prompt, we're all very happy.
