sure the sliding door dog door or cat door insert works for both your pet and
your sliding door. First take the bottom of your pet door panel and place it
inside the bottom track. If your track has a pencil rail running across the
center of it, the insert will straddle it. Next, straighten the panel and carefully
loosen the thumb screws to release the spring mechanism, letting the panel rise
into the upper track. Then, push your panel towards the wall and inside the
vertical track. You can now tighten the thumbscrews to secure the panel in place. Note: if the outer track wall is shorter, it may be easier to install the final
panel from the outside. The thumb screws and locking cover will still be facing
the inside of the home. Close the sliding door against the pet door to make sure
they are level and free of any large gaps. The weather stripping will help
accommodate any small gaps. You can refer to the tricks included in your
instructions for large deviations. Once you are confident that your panel fits
your door, remove the door to install the weather stripping along both vertical
sides of the panel. Lay the panel on its side and from the bottom of the panel

with scissors. the draft stopper will be installed
