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 purchased the larger in screen dog door with the cross bar, install was fairly easy and went well. I also ordered and I stalled the support bar, this was more difficult and as Installed really is not that much more support. I drilled the frame in door and used small zip ties to improve support and actually now attached to door at corner of frame- should be an add to pre drill holes in frame to use zip or even metal ties to add support from frame to support bar. McGiver would be proud
It took a while to install but it wasn't difficult. Our door had a panel at the bottom. I removed the panel and it fit perfectly. The brace that came with it was useless. Se i purchase some flat aluminum, painted it, and braced it myself. Looks good and works great. Should have done this a while ago.
I bought the sliding glass doggy door and found myself unable to use my screen door unless I let my dog in and out. I looked here and found they did make a doggy door for screen doors. I purchased one and was able to install it myself after watching the video on the website. The door is very well constructed and works perfectly. My dog can now go in and out of my house no matter if I have my glass door or my screen door closed.
Bought a small Hale Pet Door for Screens. Arrived well packed and is a truly well constructed pet door. Installed just fine on our Pella Screen Door. Little tiny bit of puckering on the screen at the outermost corner but not anything obvious or ugly. The magnets are really strong--our cats weren't strong enough to push thru. We removed one magnet (easy to pull out of the channel) and the larger cat could push thru but the smaller cat couldn't (maybe was just being a cat) so we pulled out the other magnet...now they both go back and forth at will. The Pet Door Store was great--Jon was receptive and answered all questions within a very short period of time, even on Sunday! Thanks Jon...your tutorial helped also...Mahalo from Hawaii
Easy installation! Looks and works great! Dogs only took a few treats and few times through back and forth to master.
Fantastic pet door. We have a strong 70 lb dog so we also bought the stabilizer bar. Used a recommended installer and couldn't be more happy with function look and quality.
I was very impressed with the quality of the door when I received it. However, I had measured the thickness of my screen door incorrectly so I had to return it and order a new one. I spoke directly with the owner regarding the issue and was pleased with the assistance I received. My dog and I are still working on training. She has only gone through it once so far without a treat on the other side!
The only problem is trying to "stretch" the screen around the top corners. I'm concerned it may tear in time, other than that it is a good door.
