Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Smoore Super Large Dog door for a Super large dog!
The good: I like this door for the ease of not having to get up and let the dog in and out, and we can remove it in seconds so we have full access to the slider (the super large takes up over half of it!). It looks nice and fits in well with the look of the door. It actually fits our 120lb dog!
The not so good: I wish it was a little sturdier. Every time my dog goes in and out you can hear it rattle. It also does not create a good seal with the door when it is closed, so it will have to come down once it starts getting cool again.
I debated returning this dog door, but overall it did what we needed it to do, and if it were "sturdier" I have a feeling it would be harder to take in and out. With a door that is so big it needs to be able to come out in seconds because not much else fits through when it is in. We can easily take it down when guests are over for a bbq or if we have to move something out to the patio.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Curt Does the job
Not perfect but it does the job. Our screen door is 78" so we initially bought the normal size but could not get that to fit. So we purchased the smaller size ("Shorty") which works if fully extended. Can be put in or removed by one person in 30 seconds. For some reason the "Shorty" door costs over $80 more (why?) but we needed something for our 2 standard poodles and lab german shepherd mix so we bit the bullet and ordered. Fit is not 100% secure (we haven't used the weather stripping yet; not sure how much it will help). And there is a large natural gap between the unit and the main sliding door so we stuffed a couple swim noodles into the gap to help seal the wind out which works pretty well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by alabamaguy Did not fit
We were unable to make this fit our door. It was not level and there was not a way to make it flush against the frame of the sliding door. We returned it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rivk product was easily installed. The dogs were quick to adapt to its use. Seems to be holding up well.
This dog door seems to be holding up quite well. Both of my Malamutes took to using it with very little coaxing. I would like to see a better method of sealing around the door, and a strong wind can still open the dog door portion. Having a stronger magnet may be in order to accommodate the ability to keep the dog door closed in a strong wind. I would like to see the giant sized available in a vinal and more insulated selection.
All and all, I am quite satisfied with my selection of this dog door and I am very pleased with the functionality of the dogs being able to come and go as they please.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leenie Great purchase
So easy to install. Took a few days, but my dogs learned to use it. Not recommended for dogs with bad knees. They have to step over in order to get in/out.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chris poor cheap product
Would not seal tight in my frame. I will not be able to use in the winter months. I bought this product because it had great reviews. My loss

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rosey1 Awesome doggy door!
This door is very convenient for our needs. Inserts easily into sliding glass door opening and can be removed just as easy. We were very pleased with this investment, our dogs are happy too!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bowser Easy to use. Plastic door shrank.
Although the door was easy to install, the plastic sheet the dog goes through to get outside shrank letting in all the outside cold air.
