    • Flap Type: Our Door Model comes standard with double flaps for improved insulation and energy efficiency.

In those instances, we provide an optional side load model with your choice of left or right side slide (Load direction is determined when looking at the door).
    • Secondary Exterior Cover (optional): Choose this option if you would like a second cover on the exterior of your door pet door. This cover does not come with a pinlock unless purchased separately.  NOTE: Choosing this option makes your door pet door a "custom" pet door for return policy purposes and entitles you to 50% credit towards the purchase of a new dog door should you need to return your pet door for any reason.
    • Rain Cap: The raincap is a Free option and part of Hale Pet Door's water containment and diversion system to help prevent moisture intrusion into your pet door.  This awning like attachment hooks onto the top edge of the outside frame and helps protect from water intrusion into the pet door itself and therefore into your house.  The rain caps are available in our four standard frame colors and will be supplied to match the exterior pet door frame.
    • Training Flap:  The training flap is made of a similar material to our regular flap but it has no strikes and has been vertically slashed several times to make it very easy to push through.  It does not, however, provide the energy efficiency of our regular flap and should only be used until your pet is used to using the door.

    How to Measure Your Pet

    There are three measurements to take into consideration when choosing the correct size door for your pet, the following guidelines will help you get accurate measurements.  If you get stuck or need any help please contact us, our experts are ready to help.

    #1 - Measure Width – Simply measure your pet at the widest point and add an inch or two for safety. If your pet is long-haired, don’t forget that this may make them appear wider than they really are. Alternately, you can open a door just wide enough for your pet to pass through and measure the width of the opening, again adding an inch or two for safety.

    #2 - Measure Height – The pet door flaps should be at least an inch or two above the top of your pet’s back not the head. To get this length, measure your pet from the withers (top of the shoulders) to the floor. Remember that your door won’t be placed completely at floor level.

    #3 - Measure Rise  This measurement is only applicable for panel models which come with the rise built in. Door, wall, screen, and window models can be mounted at whatever height is comfortable for your pet. If you have a short-legged dog or an older dog that can’t lift his feet very high, or if the door is installed with a step on either side, consider ordering a “no rise” door. Our standard rise is 5” or 10”.

    Hale Pet Door measurement guidelines

    Alternate method: You can also make a sample door opening out of a large piece of cardboard based on the above size chart. Place it in a door opening and experiment with height placement. Order the size most comfortable for your pet.

    Other Considerations for Choosing the Correct Door Size

    Older pets don’t like to use pet doors that are uncomfortable. Make sure you get a door that your pet will always be able to use. If you currently have a kitten or puppy, remember that they will grow.

    Mount the pet door so that it is low enough for your pet to comfortably step over. Young pets can raise their legs up to their chest but older pets may have trouble with this.

    Make sure the pet door is tall enough for your pet. Hunching over can be hard on your pet’s hips, especially as they age. And the flaps on your door will last longer if your pet isn’t rubbing against the top of the door as he passes through.

    If you have more than one pet, make sure you get a door that will work for all of them: low enough for the shortest one to step over but tall enough for the tallest one to fit through comfortably.

    Don’t forget that your pet needs access from both sides of your pet door. If you are installing the door in an area that has steps outside, please take into consideration how your pet will have to get through the door. This is especially true of our panel models. They have a standard rise of 5” but can be ordered with no rise (actually about 1” of frame to step over) instead to make it easier for your pet.

        FAQ

        Why do Hale Pet Doors cost more than other brands?

        Hale pet doors are made with the highest quality workmanship and of the finest materials available.  We use only extruded aluminum framing, pvc vinyl flaps and King Starboard® security covers.  Because these materials are superior, the pet doors are much heavier for greater strength and durability. 

        What is the difference between Single and Double flaps?

        Double flap mounts increase resistance to extreme weather. These are great options for blazing summer and snowy winters. While a Hale single flap can do the job of some double flap models, the additional vinyl can safeguard from wind and single-digit temperatures.

        Can I lock my pet door?

        Absolutely.  All of our pet doors (except the screen model) come standard with a King Starboard® security cover.  Starboard is manufactured for marine applications and is virtually indestructible.  This cover can be locked into place with our steel positive action pin lock to make your pet door virtually impregnable.

        What prevents insects, rodents or other animals from getting inside?

        Hale pet doors are designed to seal very tightly.  We use heavy pile weather stripping and strong alnico magnets. Therefore, insects and small animals cannot push their way in through the pet door. Since the flaps are also sealed and do not hang open, larger animals do not see an opening to get started. Most animals need a little conditioning to get used to using a pet door and won’t push against something that isn’t already open.  We recommend keeping all food and water away from the area of the pet door, either inside or outside the house, so unwanted animals are not even attracted to the area in the first place.  If you have further security or animal intrusion concerns, we offer a full line of security products to complement our pet doors.

        Can I add or remove magnets?

        Yes, you can attach and remove magnets. Removing magnets makes it easier for smaller pets to push through. With a screwdriver head, you can push the magnets off the flap. Adding magnets is a great way to combat weather as well.

        Do I install my pet door by myself?

        With their self-framing design, our pet doors are designed to be extremely easy to install.  If you have a basic working knowledge of power tools and home repairs, our doors can easily be installed in most applications by any do-it-yourselfer.  We have also provided installation instructions for download on this website and we have experienced technicians available for free telephone consultation if desired. Of course, if you don’t want to install your own pet door, we have a large network of franchises and dealers across the country who would be happy to assist you. Feel free to contact us for a reference.

        How do I install the carpet for this door?

        First, measure and trim the carpet to match your tunnel's width. You can use common construction glue to keep the carpet in place. Then, you can apply the adhesive to firmly lock the carpet against the tunnel.

        How do I adjust the tunnel sleeve length to fit my wall length?

        The tunnel sleeve is made of aluminum, and will either be 10" or 16" in length. Once you measure the exact length of your wall, you will then have to cut the aluminum with metal snips according to size. You can discard the extra material left over.
