Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roger Good quality product!
Like many other reviewers mentioned my holes didn't line up while installing. This however isn't a defect since I checked the alignment with the template and both sections before I installed. Everything lined up. It must have to do with slight variations in positioning of the two halves and whether you drill the holes true. It was a simple issue to fix and I don't believe it's the fault of the product. My two Huskies love it and find it easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom Exactly as described!
Door is exactly as described in advertisement. Magnets close door every time and edges seal up nicely.
Air leakage is not a problem at all. Couple of attempts and some coaxing with a treat and my German Shorthair Pointer uses it without hesitation. Wish I would of got it months ago! Door access panel is a nice feature as well. Just slide it in place when you want to keep pet in or out. Installation is super simple.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Schmolis Awesome doggie door for larger dogs!
We have a Boxer/Dane mix that likes to go out and explore all the time. Sometimes he just likes to stick his long neck out to see what's going on outside. The magnetic attachment works great to latch every time when not in use. I was concerned that air would be coming in/out, but it doesn't. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the see through aspect of the door itself. Wish it was a darker shade or tinted.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by xena Large size is good.
Not very sturdy, thin plastic. Door sizing does not work correctly. Need to measure on your own.
Would be easy for someone to just push in protective door if wanted to get in.
But in winter better then nothing when dogs have to be in all day. May be a heating issue
as does not seem to insulate well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amb Nice large size
Appreciate the magnet that holds the flap closed. Our big lab goes in and out easily. Painted it black so it blended with the dark door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by trompaswrit Great door, but a tedious install
This is our second Ideal Pet door. The first one lasted about 15 years (through much heavy use) and we knew it was a good product. Like other reviewers mentioned, the template didn't exactly match the required dimensions, but it wasn't a big deal to adjust to. The hardest part was using the bolts with their receivers; it was tricky getting them to meet up. And one bolt/receiver pair would not thread together even with no door between them! The customer service people are sending us a replacement bolt and sleeve. Difficult install aside, we love the door. The clear flap looks great (our old one was not as transparent) and the magnets are a big improvement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rvhotel Replacement
My experience with this door was very favorable. It was easy to install, but it was a replacement for an existing Ideal Pet door, which made it easier in my case. Our dogs took one whole day to come through it on their own because the bottom magnet was missing on the old one and they didn't have to push before I put the new one in. Now they zip through it and it closes very well keeping most of the draft out. My only complaint was that the new door was slightly smaller than the first one. It worked out, but just barely, where the old one covered the opening with some to spare.
