Transcat Small To Medium Dog Door
The Transcat Dog Door has a 4 way locking system that allows for locking the door in either direction, both directions or not at all. It allows for easy control by the owner from both the inside & outside. Your dog can come and go without you having to stop what you are doing!.
Unsure if your dog will fit? Make a template out of a sheet of cardboard (see diagram below) and see if your dog can fit through easily. Your dog should be fully grown.
Also see the new improved large flap sized medium round door which fits the same size glass hole if you are looking for more features and a stronger construction door.
For Installation into Single Pane Glass
A circular hole is simply cut (subject to glass quality) by a competent glazier and your Transcat Dog door fitted in the following manner:
- The glazier should be consulted about where to cut the hole but owners should also consider factors such as the height of the dog’s legs and whether or not they are fully grown. The dog should also be able to go through the dog door without having to jump up or crouch down.
- The hole in the glass should be 385mm in diameter.
- The two main parts of the Cat Door are then clamped with the glass between. Use the four bolts supplied. IMPORTANT! Assemble the door so that the frame with the flap is on the outside.
- Nuts should be fitted finger tight only, to prevent unnecessary stress being place on the glass. This is sufficient to hold the door.
Your Transcat Dog Door can be fitted to thicker panels or solid core wooden doors or walls using a 358mm diameter hole but it will leave an internal cavaity that may need to be covered if your pets leg could fall through the gap.
The supporting ring is not required because the dog door is fastened to the outside using screws (not supplied).
Remove the door from where it is installed and wash in soapy water using a soft cloth. Do not use spray on lubricants.
The door is made from tough polycarbonate plastic but will break if put under strain for which it is not intended. Care should be taken not to allow a sliding door to hit the side of the flap which might still be swinging because if it is hit from the side it will break.
The dog door opening could allow a small child to squeeze through.
Care should be taken in the placement of the dog door that the appropriate security measures are in place on surrounding windows and doors.
