Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by babe They did not go together.
The dog door and the extension did not work together. The extension was about 3/8th of an inch taller than the door. We had to cut the door a little taller, then the door's frame wasn't big enough to cover the hole. Also the bolts that came with the kit were too big around for the holes in the door. It took a good handi-man two days to get it installed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jjjj They should include everything you need......
If you are installing this in a tract home you have what you need. If you have use the kit for thicker walls (Available at an extra charge) you will have trouble finishing the job because the bolts are too short!
For a few extra cents they could include longer bolts in the event you hafta use the wall kiy. I spent half a day looking for a solution for the short screws because the size/ type of screws are not commonly available. I had to go to speciality nut/ bolt place to get something that would work.
Overall its a good product, took the dogs a while to learn to use it because of the double flaps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoriF Ruff Weather Pet Door and wall kit
If you need to install a pet door in a wall, the Ruff Weather Pet Door and wall kit give you a very nice finished project. The dual flaps on the door keep the noise and cold out. I have two dogs and they both learned to use it easily and quickly. We recently installed dual pane vinyl windows and patio doors and decided that we wanted to install the pet door in a wall rather than use a patio door kit again. We have noticed that when the dogs go in and out it is quieter than our old pet door, and it looks a lot nicer, too. The keys to successful installation is proper placement between the studs and having the proper tools on hand before you start. With the use of a sawzall, you and a friend should be able to complete this project in less than 3 hours.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sean Not big enough
The product is 7" deep, which is about 1.75" short. If your wall was built with 2x6's, this will NOT work. I'll be returning and making my own. The 7" would work IF the door itself was flush with the wall, but it's not, making the opening closer to 9" instead of the 7" it is. It's like the person who designed this wall insert never saw the actual door it's made for. Just a terrible fit. Highly disappointed there isn't a deeper option available.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keith simple product for a cool project
I bought this to create a door way for our cats between our closet and living room. After I measured and cut my hole, I placed some scrap lumber in the bottom of the void between the walls. I then placed the wall kit in the wall caulked around it. I thought it looked so good the way it was that I just painted around and left it. The cats used it rather quickly and we haven't had a problem since. I think it's a great product, but I feel it's a bit pricey. I would give it 5 stars if it were $15 less.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by d6776a Great product.
Great for my 7lb and 15lb cats. They were hesitant at first so I did not install the doors for the first week. The next week added a door and the second door the week after. You may have to push your cats through so they get the idea. We now have both the litter boxes and cat food in the garage so there is not a mess in the house. We used this product for the hole we made through the wall that goes into the garage. Took about an hour and looks professional. It's worth spending the money and buying this quality product.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 98672 Probably not worth the price
Agree with some other reviewers that this product is probably not worth the price. NOTE: this review is based on my decision to ultimately not use the wall-kit for my installation and will return it to the store. It's pretty easy to just frame the wall opening with scrap lumber. Despite care as suggested in the instructions (for the door) to make level, straight drills through the wall, I found it difficult to get perfectly aligned holes. (Some of my outside holes were off by a half-inch or so.) Had initially considered drilling back from the outside (using the holes on the inside frame temporarily placed on the outside as the new template). But figured I'd still have the same outcome. So used some available 3-inch screws (3-1/2 or 4 would be better) to anchor the inside frame to the wall frame I'd constructed (i.e., rather than using the long kit-bolts or all-thread). For the outside frame, just drilled through the bolt receptacles to then allow me to use screws to anchor the outside frame. If you're concerned about someone trying to remove the outside frame, could put a dab of adhesive on each outside screw-head to discourage that.
