The DraftStopper Patio Doors are designed for customers who want a better sealing pet opening that what is offered by a single flexible flap. This Patio insert uses the Ideal UltraFlex pet door, which is an insulated segmented flap. This flap, made from GE Lexan, is nearly indestructible. It has a heavy duty gasket that lines all sides of the flap and seals very well. The pet door  includes an "Animal Lock-out" slide in panel. The Patio Insert itself is has an aluminum frame that holds single pane safety glass. The very top of the patio insert is spring-loaded to allow easy installation and removal without the use of any tools. A pin lock mechanism is included so that you can lock your slider into place.


The UltraFlex segmented flap is made of tough GE Lexan,
they are nearly indestructible.  The DraftStopper Patio Pet Door flap may be too heavy
for cats and very small dogs.

Note: your slider will not lock into the patio insert). Many customers will use an optional Charley-bar or brace bar behind the slider.

The DraftStopper is recommended for those customers who want a better insulated patio door
without the higher cost of a dual pane glass unit.

The top spring-loaded adjusting section of the Ideal DraftStopper Patio Pet Door appears as an "H" piece when viewed from the side.  The overall width of this piece is 13/16" (Will fit into most any sliding glass door track).

The spring-loaded adjustment provides for a 2 1/2" range for proper fitting into your opening.  Most top tracks in sliding glass doors do not have any center rails, however, if you do have this feature then the Ideal DraftStopper Patio Pet Door can straddle any rail at the top 5/8" wide or narrower.

The spring-loaded top is secured with 2 thumbscrew locks, accessible from inside the house only, so that someone from the exterior of the house would not be able to compress or remove the unit.

[photo] Ideal patio pet door bottom viewThe bottom section of the Ideal DraftStopper Patio Pet Door has an overall width of 5/8".  A semi-circle, "C" channel is centered and runs the length of the bottom.  This "C" channel is design to straddle the center rail in the channel on the floor that your sliding glass door follows.

By straddling this center rail, the DraftStopper Patio Insert will remain centered to the frame of your sliding door when closed to this unit.

Note:  If the center rail in the channel on the floor is wider than 5/16", then this patio Insert will not be able to straddle it and as a result may not fit properly in your opening.
