Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katie Getting more sleep and saving on electric bills
My cats constantly annoyed me to open the patio door to let them out. Sleep is precious, and I was up literally every hour letting them out, in, out, in, and eventually I would leave the door opened about 6" for hours on end. Now, with the patio door with cat flap, the cats can exit and enter as they please. Plus, my leaving the door open and wasting air-conditioned cool air is no longer a problem. The weather stripping prevents hot air from getting in or from cold air getting out. I'm very pleased with this product. Sidenote: My patio door is approx 92" tall, so I unscrewed the retractable top and gained that extra room needed for installation.

I bought this cat door for my very small dog. Although it's the most convenient dog door option, it has it's cons. The door does not seal properly with the sliding door frame. I had to go buy weather stripping to fill in the gaps and it's still not enough. In addition, I didn't feel comfortable drilling holes to add the security feature so I also bought a wood dowel. In the long run, having drafts going through my house and using only a dowel for security is still better in my opinion than putting holes in a wall or a door.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Average pet door
I had a pet door very similar to this one for 7 years. When comparing it to the one just ordered, it is not made as well or is as sturdy. The metal seems very thin. It does attached to the door fairly easily, but if the door is not perfect, there are gaps that can be seen,. The weather stripping does help, but we needed to purchase more to put over the gap instead of between the pet door and the glass door.
The 3 way locking mechanism seems to be the same. I was very happy with the original one so was happy to find it with this door. I only considered sliding pet door that had this feature.
My cats seem not to notice the difference between the two door (old one and this one). They are fairly big cats - around 15 lbs each and can easily fit thru the 'small' cat door so I am glad I ordered the small instead of the medium or large pet door.
For the price it is a decent value.

Although it takes a little creativity to install the door...lots of weather stripping helps...this door is worth the money. It already is much cooler in the house now that the sliding glass door does not have to be opened for the cats. They easily figured out how to use the door, catnip is a great teaching tool. The picture doesn't do it justice, it matches standard white sliding glass doors and once installed it looks like it was always part of the slider.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Catowner Easy to install, does just what it's supposed to do
It took the cat a few days to adjust to the cat door but now she uses it wihout problem. My husband installed it quickly and easily. We had to buy additional weather stripping but that was no problem either. It didn't work with the kind of lock of lock we have but a dowel between the door and frame fixed that. A good product. Well built. Don't hesitate if you are looking for a solution to pet access.

This product is excellent. The Flex Fit thing is smart and intuitive. Unfortunately, my patio door is off and a bit slanted so the door doesn't meet the panel cleanly but that isn't the panel's fault. My neighbor got the same thing before me and it's a great invention so this has been a life saver because my wife would have killed me if the cat box and food was in our small place.

If I had a complaint it would be that it doesn't make the greatest seal around the door, but I think a bit more weather stripping will help. We have to go behind the regular slider instead of next to it. That way we still have the security of the original door and our cat can't go outside unless we are home and able supervise her.
