Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PCOD13 Very nice product. As advertised, easy to install, works well.
Very easy to install. Our older house is slightly "off square", so the fit isn't completely air-tight, but it's better than having the door to the screen porch open all the time for the cat to go in and out. Our cat did NOT like the feel of the flap on his back as he went in and out, so I took the flap completely off until he was used to using the opening, then replaced it with strips of denim to block most of the outside air. I may also try heavy-weight felt strips when the weather turns cold. The fabric is easily attached with the screws that held the plastic flap. The door is easy to slip into place every morning and then take out again at night to lock the sliding door. Very happy with the purchase. Kitty has access to "his" porch and our energy bills will hopefully go back down!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindy We're very happy with this product.
We had to alter the door to fit over the lip of the track, it was about an half inch too tall even when fully compressed. We examined the section that is compressed and figured out we could loose the 1/2 inch there and the door would still work as advertised, and it has. We've had the door installed and one cat was easy to train with treats. We're still working with the second cat to use it by themself.

Works fine. We use for our cats. It's a little big but the smaller version makes them crouch down to get through. No big deal for a cat except one of ours has back trouble. This one allows him to walk straight through with more than enough room. Another cat goes out but the magnet scares him coming in. But he's skittish. Cat number 3 wants no part of it. Cats...sheesh!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Karli92 Works great for cats!
My cats love this door! Took a few days for them to get used to it but now they use it all the time. Only reason I give 4 stars is because you end up having to buy extra weather stripping andthe locking mechanism is weird so we just used a block of wood.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnB A Great Buy - My Dog Loves It!!
I was overly pleased with the quality of this product. The aluminum frame and the safety glass rival my patio door. I was not expecting such a quality door. I added some weather stripping to both sides and some to the frame side of my sliding patio door frame and it is pretty much weather and AC tight. Very pleased, my dog loves being able to just come and go as she wishes. We have a similar dog door installed on our porch screen door so she can let herself in and out without bugging us constantly as before.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ak Not bad. Not great.
First, the size is not Medium. These Fast Fit doors come in strange, illogical sizes. Rather than labeling them as S, M, L, XL, the company only offers S, M, Extra-L and Super-L. It is as if the Large size is missing. Therefore, the Medium is claimed to suit 13-35 pound dogs while the next size jumps to 36-90 pounds. That is a huge difference. The Extra-L ends up too big for many homes by reducing how far you can open your sliding door by another 3-1/2". This should not be taken lightly, unless you don't use the door yourself. Second, the Medium size rated for 13-35 pounds is just wrong. It is better suited for a standard adult cat. I would rate it only for dogs up to 27 pounds, like a Jack Russell, Boston, or Scottish terrier. My skinny border collie mix who is 32 pounds and average height can barely squeeze through. Her back and sides scrape against the opening every time. She must awkwardly duck her head down then also jump at the same time to get her hind legs over the lower ledge while her back hits the top. Clearly, the manufacturer Ideal Pet erred and is covering the fact they have a big gap in sizing. I only know I got the Medium because the chart indicated it was the right size for my dog and it was totally wrong. Third, the installation method is very easy. However, it does not work well in practice. Most doors over time are not perfectly squared, and will be a few degrees off. Sliding doors allow an adjustment to change the fit and slide smoothly, but the Fast Fit pet door must fit perfect or it will leave a gap. The company could easily remedy this by providing rubber pads or shims for the top and bottom, but they only include a strip of weather stripping for one side. Ironically, if one side of the door is not plumb or square in the track, it means you need to put weather stripping on both sides. Many reviews on Home Depot and Amazon clearly identify these problems. I am still debating whether or not to return my purchase, but having gone through the trouble of installing it, my dog may have to live with it. If you're considering this dog door, make sure your dog is 27 pounds or less, and that your sliding door frame is perfectly squared to 90 degrees.

It works out perfectly! I have large cats and the medium size seems to work best for them. Easy installing and fits great!
