Endura Flap Dog Door for Door Installation Video


Video Transcription

Hi, I’m Nick from Patio Pacific and congratulations on your new endura flap door mount pet door. I’m going to show you how to install it.

You are going to need the following tools: a big level, straight edge, safety equipment, torpedo level, pen, tape , screw driver, tape measure, reciprocating saw, and drill.


First you are going to tape the template to the door; you want to make sure the cutout line is at least an inch and 1/4 above the dog’s shoulders. Also you want to keep in mind that you don't want to cut too low on the door because you do not want to jeopardize the structural integrity of the door.


With the template in place, now I am going to drill the 4 holes and remove the template. Since this is a hollow door, I want to apply tape in between my holes to prevent splintering. Now, draw lines connecting the outsides of each holes.

Now we are going to cut along the lines using the reciprocating saw. One trick I like to do is use a piece of cardboard to put between the saw and the door to prevent any needless scuffing.


Now I am going to install the weather stripping on both frames. The start point should be at the bottom center of the frame. With the weather stripping installed, insert the trim frame on the outside of the door and the flat frame on the inside.


Refer to the instructions to select the proper screws; in my case i have an inch and 3/8th door so I will select the shorter set of screws. I’m going to start all 4 screws but i will not tighten them. Before tightening the screws, level the pet door and then tighten the screws.


To finish the installation, hammer in the hole plugs using the wooden end of the hammer or another non-metallic tool. This concludes the installation of your Endura Flap door mount.
