This pet door is all about the flap. This door uses the Endura flap, which has been tested beyond 1,000,000 cycles without a failure!!! The key to its durability is that it swings on bushings at the top instead of flexing at the top like a typical soft vinyl flap, this pivot allows the door to swing without wear and tear. This new Endura flap is available in taller sizes than most other pet doors. The manufacturer refers to this as "aspect ratio". A high aspect ratio with a tall skinny flap makes it easier to fit multiple dogs, as the flap can be lower to the ground and yet still be tall enough for a larger dog at the same time, and is still not unnecessarily wide. Because of the full length magnets that go all the way down the sides and across the bottom of the flap, this door requires more force to open. We have customers with cats using the largest size, but if your pet is particularly skittish you may want to consider the alternatives and consider a Hale door as they are easier to open.

There are 3 important sizes with respect to pet doors:
Flap Size is the most important, so it is listed on the main page. This is the size of the space that your pet will have to fit through.
Cutout Dimension refers to the size of the hole that needs to be cut in a wall to install the pet door.
Outside Dimension is the size of the outside of the frame, which can sometimes be important when installing a pet door in a limited space.
All sizes are given Width x Height.

Congratulations on your purchase of the finest pet door made, featuring the exclusive Endura Flap.
Instructions are for both the single and double flap models.
Please read instructions thoroughly before beginning installation.
4 Threaded Rods
4 Open Barrel Nuts
1 Hex Nut
1 Tube of Silicone
4 Tunnel Pieces
2 Foam Weatherstrips
8 Hole Plugs
1 Jigsaw Blade
1 4” Screw (used to guide Threaded Rods)
Jigsaw • Level • Pencil
Tape • Nail or Awl
Drill with extra
long 3/8” Bit
Tape the provided template onto the wall in the desired location. Use a level to level the top edge of the template.
Mark the centers of the four holes using an awl or nail. Remove the template. Drill four 3/8“ holes through the interior and exterior walls. Tip: The drill bit needs to be long enough to go
through both interior and exterior walls (6”–12”). The holes must be drilled very straight and level.
Draw lines connecting the outside part of the holes. Cut out the opening along the lines. The top edge of the cut out should be 1-1/4” (or more) above the dog’s withers (shoulders) for the single flap, and 2” for the double flap. IMPORTANT: Be careful to avoid wall studs, electric
wires, or pipes.
Install the weatherstrip into the groove in both the interior and exterior frame.
Tip: Install the weatherstripping with the gap at the bottom.
Trim the four sheet metal tunnel pieces so that they are 1/4 “shorter than the thickness of the wall. Use a jigsaw, nibblers, or a bandsaw. (A jigsaw blade is provided.)
Be careful to trim the correct side. Do not trim the side of the tunnel pieces that attach to the flap frame. Tip: To reduce vibration, the pieces should be firmly clamped to a piece of wood.
Bend the frame attachment tabs on the two smaller tunnel pieces 90 degrees upward along the perforations. Be careful to bend the tabs in the right direction. The tabs will break if bent more than once. Some tunnel pieces have a joggle (offset). Bend these tabs as shown with arrow. Tunnel pieces that do not have a joggle can be bent in either direction. WARNING:
The tabs may break if bent more than once.
Remove the two screws at the top of the Interior Frame (the frame that has a locking cover). Attach one of the smaller tunnel pieces to the top of the Interior Flap Frame using the two screws. Repeat this using the other small tunnel piece along the bottom of the flap frame.
Slide the larger tunnel pieces onto the finger tabs on the top and bottom (smaller) tunnel pieces. Bend the finger tabs down as shown below.
Cut the four threaded rods so that they are 3 /4 “ longer than the thickness of the wall. Tip: Thread a nut (provided) onto the threaded rod before cutting. When finished cutting, removing the nut will straighten the cut threads.
Place the Interior Frame, with the tunnel attached, into the opening in the wall from the inside of the building. Place the Exterior Frame into the tunnel.
Loosely insert the 4-inch screw into the head of the barrel nut.
The screw can now be used to help guide the threaded rod through
the interior and exterior frame. The 4-inch screw will create a
temporary handle for threading the rods in the door (see below)
Insert the threaded rods with the barrel nuts into the four holes in the Interior Frame (the frame that has a locking cover), and screw the threaded rods into the Exterior Frame finger tight. Check that the pet door is level and tighten the threaded rods until the weather stripping compresses fully. Be careful not to overtighten.
Apply a bead of silicone sealant (provided) along the inside of the tunnel where it mates with the frames and along the tunnel seams. Be careful to seal all gaps and seams to minimize the chance of water damage to the wall.
Tip: A screwdriver handle works well for bending the finger tabs.
Tip: For especially heavy dogs, you may wish to support the bottom of the tunnel with a piece of wood.
Tap the hole covers into the Interior and Exterior Frames.
Tip: The wooden handle of a hammer, or similar non-metal
tool, works well for tapping in the hole plugs.

I am very pleased with the Endura through the wall pet door. It took my two Parson Russell terriers a little while to catch onto it. More strength in pushing to break the magnetic seals is required than with their other single flap dog door through a door. I like its tightness and have confidence rats or other animals will probably not be coming through it. The door is nice and solid and appears like it will last a very long time.
Great footy door! My dogs love it! Seems very sturdy and seems durable! Definitely weather resistant! A little difficult to install.
We purchased and installed the double flap pet door for our 75 pound dog. He loves being able to come and go as he wants. We have a fenced in yard, and with the door, long days at work are not a problem Would definitely recommend this for anyone. Also with the double flap, cold winter winds are not a problem. It seals well keeping the weather out.
Excellent product. Take your time with installation especially on the extra large model as there is very little room between 16" on center studs. The install video's were very helpful. High quality materials. Flap magnets seal the door well. Just made it through 50 mph wind gusts and did not have any problems at all.
This door does appear to be higher quality construction that most of what you can buy nowadays. My dog did chew the outside flap and pull the magnet off. It is still functional, but I don't know if I can just get a new flap later. I did install the door myself and it is fairly easy if you have some carpenter/DYI in you, but takes time....I have an old house so did have to remove drywall and mess with some studs. The one thing I think they could do to improve the product is if instead of cutting the metal for the wall thickness that the metal wall through part slides over top of the pieces to automatically fit to the wall. You have to caulk the joints anyway so this would save installation time.
I researched dog doors extensively and found the Endura Wall Double Flap to be the best product for my application. The magnets, seals, flaps and overall quality is excellent. I like the way the bottom plate is pulled upwards to make a complete seal on the flap. I installed carpet on the interior tunnel wall. It's not needed but adds a nice touch for my pampered dog.
