Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tlp Couldn't get a good fit
This product seems like a good idea and maybe it worked for others, but I couldn't get it to fit properly. I used the enclosed sealing tape and even bought more myself, but couldn't get a connection that was close enough. I just can't have that much air going in and out. It is also a huge ripoff that the shorter insert costs double the price.

Easy install! Nice to have the shorty available for specialty doors such as Anderson sliders.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Exactly what I was looking for.
I heard good things about this particular brand of dog doors that would fit into a sliding door. I needed the "shorty" model and I think this particular model seemed overpriced. I watched the online video ahead of buying it so I felt pretty certain I could install this myself. I'm not exactly handy. It arrived and after about thirty minutes I had it installed. It was a tight fit, but it did fit.
Then came the experience of trying to get my dogs to go through it. I read another review that says the distance of about nine inches between the floor and the bottom of the dog door opening and that that height made it a bit difficult. I have two dogs and wasn't sure how they would handle that - especially my small dog who only weighs 15 pounds. We have another dog door on our porch and they both know how to use this one but it's only about five inches off the floor. Well, the little dog figured it out in about three minutes. She just leaps right through it. The big dog (70 pounds) wasn't quite so ready. But within a week he was using it without enticing him with treats and now both dogs are happy. And that makes us happy.
The door does a good job of keeping cold air out of the house and overall I'm very pleased with this purchase and the quality of the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by whuntley7 we are loving the new patio dog door, probably not as much as the dog. It was easy to install and just as easy to take out if we decide to. we ordered it online and had it in just a couple of days. we installled it in our travel trailer and like it enough to put one in the slider at home.
