double flap vinyl panel diagram

 

Endura Flap Vinyl Panels have an adjustable step-over feature that allows you to adjust the height of the flap to fit your pet. The top of the flap should be positioned at least 1" above the top of your pet's shoulders.

If the factory setting is not suitable for your pet, please adjust it following either the single flap (see page 6) or double flap (see page 9) process. If the current setting is suitable, proceed to the Installation Instructions below.

INSTRUCTIONS

install hole plugs for double flap

If you purchased a double flap unit and you did not adjust the step-over height, you will need to install the hole plugs. Use the wooden end of a hammer, a rubber mallet, or another non-metal tool to tap the hole plugs over the eight exposed frame screws.

loosen thumbscrews to adjust height

Step 1: Loosen the thumbscrews at the top of the panel. This allows the spring mechanism to move freely up and down.

inserting panel in upper track

Step 2: Insert the panel into the upper track of your door frame, push the panel into the spring mechanism, then swing the bottom of the panel up and over the threshold into the lower track rail.

If you can't clear the track, try swinging in from the outside, as the outside track wall may be shorter. If the panel still doesn't fit, see the FAQ for guidance.

Step 3: Once you are confident that the panel fits, remove the panel from the track and lay it on its side on the ground. Apply the foam weatherstrip seal by peeling back the paper and exposing the adhesive. Unroll it along the edge of the panel, pressing to ensure it adheres. Install on both sides and trim to fit with scissors.

put on weather stripping

 

tighten thumbscrews

Step 4: Place the panel back into the sliding glass door, then tighten the thumbscrews to lock it in place.

ADJUSTING STEPOVER HEIGHT

SINGLE FLAP PANELS

Please Note: Panels with a Small, Medium or Large Flap will have one adjustable spacer and one adjustable seal extrusion. Panels with an Extra-Large flap will have two adjustable spacers and two adjustable seal extrusions.

Step 1: Lay the entire panel on a flat surface. Using a #2 Phillips head screwdriver, remove the bottom set of side-screws. Loosen the middle set of side-screws one turn. Next, remove the bottom crosspiece by sliding it down and out from the panel.

removing bottom crosspiece

 

Step 2: Now that the bottom crosspiece is removed, the remaining pet door assembly, adjustable spacer(s), and adjustable seal extrusion(s) (see page 1) can be removed by sliding the sections down and out of the panel.

Step 3: Replace the pet door assembly, adjustable spacer(s), adjustable seal extrusions(s), and bottom crosspiece by sliding them back in a different order (see next page) to achieve the desired height. You can move the spacer(s) above or below the pet door assembly to lower or raise the flap height.

Please Note: The order is important - the bottom crosspiece with the track cutout must always be at the bottom, as that is where the bottom side-screws attach. Make sure to position the adjustable spacer(s) so that the flap frame interlocks with the channel.

adjustable spacer

 

Please Note: You will also ned to move the adjustable seal extrusion to the new location to rest between the adjustable spacer and the adjacent crosspiece.

white connector pieces

 

Step 4: Once the desired flap height is achieved, replace and tighten the botom side-screws and tighten the middle side-screws.

Please Note: If the white connector piece fall off of the Bottom Crosspiece, the diagrams below picture how to orient the connector back onto both sides of the Bottom Crosspiece.

unscrewing four fram screws

 

DOUBLE FLAP PANELS

Step 1: Lay the entire panel on a flat surface. Use a #2 Phillips head screwdriver to unscrew the four frame screws from the flap frames to separate them, then set them aside.

loosen sets of side screws one turn

 

Step 2: Loosen both the middle and bottom sets of side-screws one turn.

adjustable seal extrusion

 

Step 3: Once the bottom and middle side-screws are loosened, slide the spacer(s) down to the bottom of the panel. Pull the adjustable seal extrusion(s) (see page 2) down and out to place it between the adjustable spacer and the adjacent crosspiece.

 

You can move the spacer(s) above or below the flap to raise or lower it until the desired flap height is achieved.

Step 4: Once the desired flap height is achieved, tighten the bottom and middle side-screws.

Step 5: To reinstall the pet door assembly, sandwich the interior and exterior frames on either side of the panel how they came. Insert the four frame screws through the pet door frames. Do not fully tighten the screws until all four are inserted and the pet door is level.

Once the pet door is leveled, tighten the screws so that the frames are secured and flush with the panel. Do not overtighten.

Step 6: Use the wooden end of a hammer, a rubber mallet, or another non-metal tool to tap the hole plugs over the eight exposed frame screws.

LOCKING YOUR DOOR

Since you cannot lock your sliding glass door to the panel, we have provided you with a sliding door clamp lock to secure your home.

Installing the sliding door clamp: This clamp has a screw that tightens by hand to prevent the sliding door from moving beyond the clamp's placement. For doors manufactured with the glass slider on the inside track, the lock can usually be installed on the door's raised track.

locking options

 

If you aren't able to use the lock that comes with the panel:

A great alternative to locking your sliding glass door is a Charley bar or dowel. Both block the slider from opening. When engaged, you cannot pull the sliding door away from the pet door panel.

FAQ

Is this the same as the Thermo Panel 3e?

This is very similar in that it has the same height ranges, flap sizes, and dual-pane Low-e glass. However, this vinyl panel is specifically made to fit better in the wider vinyl slider tracks. Read about the differences between vinyl and aluminum pet door panels here.

Will it fit all vinyl sliding glass doors?

This panel fits doors that have a recessed track at least 1-1/2" wide, with a rail in the bottom that is about the size of a pencil. The panel is made with a small channel that will case over that little rail

Does it lock?

We do include a c-clamp lock to lock the panel in place in your slider track. However, the panel does not mate with your existing sliding door lock. You can also use a Charley bar or wooden dowel for additional security.

Can an intruder remove it from the outside?

The thumbscrews are on the inside of the house so you cannot loosen them from the outside.

Does the flap lock?

The severe weather vinyl sliding door panel comes with a secure locking cover to block access to the flap when needed.

Does this panel insulate well?

Yes, it insulates very well. The flap is lined with magnets on three sides to stay shut in winds up to 50mph. The glass in the panel is dual-pane, Low-E for maximum insulation.

How do I measure for it?

You will want to measure from the deepest part (down past the little metal rail) in the bottom, then all the way up to the deepest part inside the top track for your track height.

Does it come in any color other than white?

No, but the vinyl can be painted to match your home.

What if my track is wider than 1-1/2"?

It will still work if your track is wider, but if the channel in the bottom, top, or side measures less than that you will not be able to fit it into place properly.

Does your door have to be vinyl?

No, this can work for aluminum sliders with tracks at least 1.5" thick.

Is the flap flexible?

It is flexible, but since it is two pieces sandwiched together it is a little stiffer and heavier than the more economical vinyl flaps.

Is the flap clear?

It is a little foggy, but it is see-through so it's easy for pets to use.

Will this form condensation like the aluminum panels?

Nope! One of the benefits of a vinyl panel is that it won't "sweat" in cold weather the way aluminum panels can.

Warranty

Endura Flap products have a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship under standard regular use. Damage caused by not using the product as intended, improper installation, and chewing is not covered under this warranty.
