I purchased this today at my local home depot. The install was very easy. It took me a little bit longer because I needed to drill a couple of holes, and travel back to home depot to get more weather stripping(I suggest you get this at the same time you purchase the door). I placed the door on the side with the stationary door so I would not have to move my lock.
To the person who took a picture of his door with a 3 inch gap... I hope you figured it out after you posted your review, but the panel that you took out from the bottom to allow you to slide the dog door down should be placed in that gap.
Also I agree with the reviewer about measuring your door wide open and then subtracting 15 inches so you can determine if it leaves you room to get out of your door. My family is pretty slim so the room remaining is enough for us to turn to the side and get out to our patio.
The only issues I have are, 1. Not enough weather stripping. 2. The price difference between the aluminum door and the white colored aluminum door.
Other than that I am very happy with my purchase, and I believe my pets will really enjoy not having to hold their business while the rest of the family is gone.

Product is very sturdy and nicely built. Make sure your sliding glass door is straight. With the house settling, the door is a little off, so I had to purchase additional foam to make sure the fit was snug. The bar that I purchased to block and lock the door originally is way too long, so I am in search of a shorter bar so that I can lock the door.
My basset hound had to practice several times in order to jump through, as the opening is a little high, but she has managed to figure it out and the door is a lifesaver when I am running late from work.

This has been a terrific purchase! It was so easy to install. After 2 minutes of it being in, my dog began going in and out without any hesitation. There no draft at all and I like that I can slide in the little plastic door for when I am not home. Thanks a lot! It is so great!

Needed to make slight modifications in the spring-loaded height adjustment - the unit ultimately fit in the space, was originally slightly too tall to angle into position over the frame lip. With 1/4-inch more clearance, it literally would have taken 2 minutes at most to put in place once out of the box. Will need more insulation/weather-stripping than comes with it to really seal properly. Will likely have to modify locking/security. Instructions on box were microscopic. Works great - dog learned it in one day, was fully acclimated within a week, gives freedom to us and the dog.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GracieG Worth it!
This is great for renters. I got this knowing i'd have limited access through my door. I installed it in about10 minutes. I read other reviews and purchased extra weather stripping. I skipped on using the locking mechanism and bought a dowell to hold the door shut snugly. For winter I recommend an extra curtain, it does allow cold air to come in. Overall it was worth it and I'm very happy that my dog is happy..... and that I have a new obstacle when I've been drinking.
