This product shipped on time, arrived in good condition, was easy to install and my 12 pound cats can fit through the opening with no problem. The bronze color does not exactly match the color of my bronzesliding glass doors (it is a darker brown color) but it does not look bad. The only downside to this product is that if you use the security lock it comes with, you can only lock it from the inside and have to exit from another door. Most sliding glass doors are designed this way anyway so it may not be a problem for most people.

I had done the research on these doors and this was the least expensive one I could find. I wasn't expecting too much due to the price. It arrive (no glass broken!) and it was already put together, no assembly. It literally took less than five minutes to install and matched our door color exactly! It also includes weatherstripping and yes, you will need to install that also due to the gap created by the slider being open to accommodate the pet door. We recently had VERY gusty winds and the pet flap door stayed in tact. It has a pretty strong magnet! My only negative point is that there is still about 1/8" area around the pet flap door that allows air flow. When it's cold, you know it! Other than that, great value and product! My dog LOVES it and no more accidents to clean up! Only took about 5 minutes of training with treats for him to get used to going in and out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by burgie works great
I shopped around and saved about $100 by purchasing this door. It works great but small rivets on flap have pulled out some of my dogs hair as she exits...it took awhile to train her to use it because of that. It was pretty easy to install once I figured out the instructions...it has to fit inside of the track at the top and over metal ridge on bottom. Also to get a good fit I had to adjust sliding door.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gardengirl Necessity is the mother of invention
I needed a dog door for a Pella sliding glass door for my 2 beagles. The dogs easily figured out how to use and really love it! However, the pet door does not make a snug fit and the suggested lock option is absurd! I was able to retrofit a seal by attaching a garage door sealer flap to the pet door and now lock the door with a chain. For the expense, I would have liked it to work perfectly out of the box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindy 7 in. x 11.25 in. Medium Bronze Aluminum Pet Patio Door
Love our door.. Was some what easy to install... Only thing I didn't like and was a little miss lead on was our Original Sliding Glass door does not lock into the Pet Door.. They just butt up against one another and you put a pin at the top of the Sliding Glass door to stop from opening.. And also there is a draft.. Have to figure out how to add more Weather stripping to keep draft out, so we don't have to re-drill a new hole for Lock Bolt... Already drilled two holes!! Put one hole in before adding Weather stripping then after adding really thin weather stripping that came with the door, hole then was off!!!
Other then that WE LOVE IT!! Was easy to train 14 year old cats to use it.. Thought it would be hard.. Daddy even loves it.. and has been told by myself and his daughter see if you would have gotten it 6 years ago like we asked you to..
Really is a great purchase..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by happycats This door allows our cats access to their litter box without us having to open and close the door.
The opening is the right size for our cats and allow easy access to the solarium area where the litter box is kept. Reduces drafts coming in the house.The cats do not like the flap and we are still working on training them to use it. We have temporarily affixed a cloth over the opening to get them used to using the door. A work in progress.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sheba Not bad
I think for the price this product should be a bit better. The door was about an inch too tall, so I had to take the metal piece from the top off and take it to get it cut down. I installed the door and used the weather protector strips which don't seem to work at all. The ones you tape on for the draft fall off as soon as you open and close the door. Otherwise it does the basic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hilctry This product is well made.
We have double pane glass sliders (which means our track is wider) so this product was a little difficult to install so that no gaps were visible between the slider and pet door, but we were able to solve that problem with shims, foam insulation tape and a slider lock on the track. If we had single pane glass sliders, I'm sure it would have been much easier to install.
