Installing an Endura Flap Panel Pet Door
I’m going to show you how to install a Patio Pacific Thermo Panel.
Remove the panel from the box, you will find all the instructions along with the foam weather stripping and a draft stopper. Make sure that you don't apply any weather stripping until you have put the panel in your tract and know that it will fit both your door and your pet.
To put the panel in your track, you will first loosen the thumbscrews. This will release the spring mechanism. You are going to put the top of the panel into the top of the track and the bottom into the bottom right on top of that rail. And then you are going to slide the whole thing over into the door jam against the wall.
At this point, you can tighten those thumbscrews to make sure that it fits into your door. In some cases, it might be easier to do this from the outside of the track if the track wall is too high on the inside. Close the sliding door against the pet door to make sure that there are no gaps. If there are gaps, refer to the tricks and workarounds included in your packet.
STEP FOUR - ADJUSTABLE STEPOVER
All of our thermo and quick panels come with a user adjustable step over feature. This allows you to change how high the flap is from the ground to make it the most comfortable height for your pet. Once you have determined that the door in the right size for your pet, you can remove the panel and apply the weatherstripping.
STEP FIVE - WEATHER STRIPPING
Lay the panel down on its side to apply weather stripping. From the end of the panel working up towards the spring mechanism, adhere the weatherstripping inside the channel unrolling it little by little. When finished, trim with scissors. When you get to the top, it is easiest to cut a piece of the weatherstripping to apply directly to the sliding glass door.
STEP SIX - DRAFTSTOPPER
You can put the draftstopper on the back edge of the sliding panel here or the back edge of the sliding panel here or the outside here. If it is too wide, you can also trim lengthwise but be careful not to trim too much as that would prevent it from doing its job. Also remember that you want the draftstopper to just barely kiss the glass; if you overlap too much, you will wear down the adhesive and will not stay installed for long.
STEP SEVEN - LOCKS AND SECURITY
You will also have a lock with your panel: either a threshold dead mount foot lock or a sliding glass door clamp lock. The foot lock will require drilling while the clamp lock will simply clamp on to the track wall and prevent the sliding door from moving beyond the locks placement.
Replacing the Flap in the Endura Flap Panel Pet Door
TOOLS YOU WILL NEED
You will need a phillips head #2 screwdriver (a magnetic one is preferred), and a flat head screwdriver.
Lay the panel down on its side so that you can see the screw holes that are in the side of the panel on both sides. Remove the 2 screws on either side nearest to the bottom of the panel.
Move up the panel to locate the second set of screws, usually about a third of the way up through the cross piece right under the glass. Loosen the two screws a quarter turn. Slide the flap assemble out of the bottom of the panel in order to get to the flap.
Locate the rod that holds the flap. If you have the retainer rings that are holding the rod in place, then you can pop one off using the flathead screwdriver then slide the rod out. Remove the old flap.
Use the blow dryer to slightly heat the bellows, these are the accordion like sides of the flap and stretch them to ensure a proper seal once installed.
Slide the rod back in. If you have retainer rings, push one back on the end of the rod. Make sure that you put the ring back on with the teeth pointing out away from the flap.
Slide the flap assemble back in place in the bottom of the panel. Be sure that the tracks for the locking cover are on the same side as the thumbscrews near the top of the panel. Screw in the bottom piece with the 2 screws that have been removed.
Tighten the screws that are under the cross piece and you are done.

Unscrew the bottom screws on both sides. It is easiest to hold the panel on the ground, sideways between your legs to get the most leverage.
Loosen the middle screws, underneath the glass, turn one turn.
Remove the flap and frame from the panel, as well as any spacers you wish to put below the flap.
Remove the bottom piece. This can be a little difficult, so just give it a little tug.
Slide the flap and spacers and bottom piece back into the panel. NOTE: the bottom piece must remain on the bottom.
NOTE: the bottom piece must remain on the bottom.
Make sure the locking cover is on the same side as the thumbs screws, and that the flap is not upside-down.
