Interior & Exterior Installation Options
Before purchasing a pet door, you should consider where you will install it. Some pet doors are meant to be installed in walls or doors of a specific thickness. Many of our pet doors can be installed in a standard door or a wall. You might need to purchase an extension tunnel for installing in walls and doors thicker than 2 inches.
Measure the thickness of the wall or door you will install the pet door in and check the pet door’s recommendations to be sure they are compatible. If your wall/door is too thin, the pet door might stick out or it might not fit right. If the door/wall is too thick, you might be able to see the inner part of your door, the part you cut out to fit in the pet door. You can purchase a tunnel or inner stripping to hide this.
