Ideal Replacement Flap for metal frame dog doors with round logo
Oct 11, 2015 - I already have an in-wall flap dog door, and it has a metal sliding cover on the inside
The Endura Flap™ Dog Door for Doors In 2001 Patio Pacific set out to design and build the best pet door flap ever made. We’ve released the resulting flap in a version designed for all solid core, hollow core, metal or storm doors: The award winning Endura Flap™ Pet Door for Doors.
Wall model cat and dog doors have both inner and outer frames. A strong frame is essential to secure both the flaps and the security cover. Plastic frames are cheaper, but lack the strength and longevity of metal. Heavy extruded aluminum at least .063" thick makes the longest lasting pet doors.
Flaps & Parts For Your Pet Door

So, how do you stop your dog from chewing on your dog door. Actually, your dog is probably chewing up the pet flap causing it to leak air and allow bugs into the house. Unless you buy an indestructible metal dog door a dog that chews will find a way to chew any type of pet flap out there. Here is the best answer I can give you and it has worked every time for all of our customers. Buy some Habanero Pepper (this can be found in the spice section of most stores) and some Vaseline. Combine the Habenero Pepper and Vaseline and smear it directly to the pet flap including all the areas your dog has tried to chew and others that our vulnerable to chewing. One taste of this and problem solved!Now for weatherstripping! Check how much of a gap is left between the outer flap and the main door, and between the inner and outer flap. In both cases there will be at least a little. Take the dog door off again and apply weatherstripping. (A cautionary tale here: I used old-fashioned felt weatherstripping, which is what I had on hand. This was much too thick to fit between the two flaps. I glued it to either side of where the inner flap fit, which worked okay. For good measure I added more weatherstripping around the edges of the outer flap. Then I remounted the dog door to the main door and had to shim the hinges and metal plate out so the door would close properly. It does work, but I used up most of my stock of metal washers for the purpose. Cheap thin foam weatherstripping may work better.)Mark where the second metal plate should go on the main door. To mount it you can take the dog door off and set it aside, or simply prop the flaps out of your way. Make sure the outer flap magnet mates with the plate properly.These Pet Doors are available in large size only and include special metal trim around the flap to make them Guaranteed chew-proof. Because of this guaranteed, you will never need to purchase replacement flaps.Unlike most Plexidor dog doors, the Large BiteGuard Kennelplex is hinged at the top rather than the familiar side-hinges "saloon door" style.
