The Hale screen door is the strongest design available. It attaches to the metal frame for the screen on the side and across the bottom, making it a much better choice for dogs than a pet door that only clips to the screen mesh, like the Ideal Screen Fit cat door.
The flaps are the same as those used on the very weather tight door model. While weather tightness might not be a factor on a screen installation, these will also be more bug proof than other pet doors. The screen model does not come with a locking cover
When installing a pet door of this type the "rise" dimension is fixed. This means that the screen frame will have it's dimension, and the pet door will sit on top of the screen frame, and the pet door will be approximately 1 " over the top of the screen frame. This is fine for smaller dogs or cats, because the pet door usually starts about 3 " off the ground. With larger dogs, the pet door can be a bit low, so we usually recommend that you get a taller flap than you would for a regular door installation.
The pictures of the frame colors will vary with your particular monitor and the brown background on the pictures doesn't do us any favors, but they are shown to give an approximate idea of the colors available. Satin is actually a brushed aluminum, similar to the bottom of a soda can. A good description of the beige is like coffee with 2 creams in it. White is bright white, bronze is almost black.
As of June, 2016 the Tall Large and larger sizes will automatically be shipped with a 48" stabilizer bar that matches the pet door frame color. We also offer the bar as an accessory for use with smaller doors. If your pets will charge through the pet door at full speed, it is a worthwhile upgrade. The stabilizer bars come in 36" and 48" lengths and can be cut to fit your door if your door isn't exactly 36" or 48".
A great testimonial on a Lanai installation: "Hello, Just wanted to let you know that my Hale pet door flap is finally starting to break down and I will be ordering a replacement flap. What is remarkable is that I purchased this in 2007, and have two very active Labrador Retrievers who've used the door constantly for 7 years now. Great product, great service. It's so refreshing when a product exceeds expectations. Best Regards, Jim S. Coconut Creek, FL" And here is another from a new installation: "I installed my door this morning in about 30 minutes. It took the dog about 10 minutes to figure it out and she has since made several excursions through the door. This is a great addition to our house. Thank you, Michael G. Peabody, MA"
If your wood screen frame has a metal insert, this door will work. If your wood screen frame has two pieces of wood which sandwich the screen mesh, it will not work.
Attention DIY Installers:
We have had quite a few customers complain after receiving their door that the spline channel is on the wrong side. The Hale screen door has a channel for the spline on both sides of the frame, but for some reason one side looks obvious and the other does not.

I usually don't comment on products I buy online. I just read other peoples comments and go from there. The installation was very easy. Especially after watching the you tube video. My dogs figured it out after putting some treats on the other side. They got comfortable using it after understanding it will flap on their back. The other problem it solved was my screen door is now more much more sturdy and doesn't bend as much. Thanks.
This was super easy to install - almost fun to do! It looks great and seems sturdy and very well designed.
While the frame of this unit is rigid, the finish details are subpar for what I would expect at the price point of this doggy door. We purchased the ORB finish and the sections of the frame where the metal was cut and welded together is visible bare metal, not painted ORB. In addition, the frame itself looks unfinished due to the groove for the screen spline appearing to be on both sides of the frame. It is functional and seems strudy enough for my high energy dog, but they need to work on the finish details for a 5 star rating.
Great product not hard to install the door but the stability bar was very confusing! I wish they included how to do that in the video.. Mine seems not be able to to on cuz the door is backwards to what the stability bar instructions show.
A very good product.
The Hale door is one of the better screen pet doors available. Pretty easy to install and seem pretty robust. I did need to make a few tweaks for it to work with my screen door. But overall, I'm very pleased with the door and would but it again.
Easy to install. Durable. A really nice addition for our two puppers!
The screen door model that I order (greater than 1/2" thick) installed very quickly and easily. So far it has held up well being used by our Wallie! Highly recommend that you purchase this product.
Quick and simple installation, and both dog and us love it!
