Product Overview


  • Toughest screen pet door on the market
  • Attaches to frame of screen, not just mesh
  • Clear flap material
  • Very tight flap seal - no bugs!
  • Available in very large sizes for big dogs
  • Fits sliding screen doors and screened porches
  • One piece for easier installation
  • Arizona Beige, White, Bronze, or Satin colors
  • Stabilizer Bar option allows you to anchor the pet door frame on 3 sides
  • 5 year limited warranty
  • Does not fit some wood screen framing with the screen mesh sandwiched between 2 pieces of wood!                 

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.

48" stabilizer bar option matches the pet door frame color. We suggest you use the stabilizer bar for larger sizes, or if your smaller pets will charge through the pet door at full speed. The stabilizer bars come 48" and are cut to fit your door.

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"

Wood Frames:

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.

    Pet Door

    Posted by Jim Meith on Jun 29th 2024

    Overall its good. The only negative is that it doesn't allow the screen door to retract all the way, which cuts down on the space for people to go in and out.

    PDS note - this pet door shouldn't cut down on the available space as the screen should open all the way. There are some doors where the screen and sliding frames are so close together that the screws that hold the pet door on interfere and the door won't open, as described here. There are workarounds, if your door and screen tracks are right next to each other, give us a call and we can see if one of them works for your situation.

    So far, so great

    Posted by Sarah on May 27th 2024

    I've only had the door for a few weeks, and I had someone else professionally install it for me because I don't have the tools or the patience, but it has been working great so far. Both cats were trained easily to go in and out and they are enjoying the freedom. It's very sturdy, I like it that it connects to the corner of the frame rather than the middle of the screen, so no damage likely to happen to the screen itself. The guy who installed it said it's the best cat door he's ever seen.

    Hale pet door

    We have a pet door for our dog and cat to share. It’s very sturdy. Our local glass shop installed it. Both animals learned to use the door quickly. The cat was faster than the dog! The door is well made. It has made the whole family happier.

    Not made for sliding doors

    Posted by Greg on Jul 7th 2023

    The instructions are pretty tough to follow, the main door part is decent quality but not low profile at all. If you have a sliding screen door there is a good chance it will not work with the round top screws. The crossbar is all of a joke the small aluminum brackets broke within one adjustment of the bar. I had to put on my own brackets on the outside. I would use caution buying this if you are not handy (many tools needed) and have sliding screen door.

    Pet Door Store note--
    If the sliding screen is right up against the frame and needs to install on the side of the screen frame that is close, then this can be an issue. This situation is rare, but it does happen. Solution is to drill all the way through the frame, countersink the screws and use nylock nuts on the other side.

    The tools to do this are not expensive, it does require extra work.
