Product Details


Maximize the functionality of your Ideal Fast Fit patio pet door or your Ideal "Fast Fit" Cat Door for Sliding Glass Doors with the White Ideal Fast Fit Height Extension Panel. This custom-built height extension panel accommodates sliding door track heights ranging from 80-5/16" to 93-3/4" and 96" to 110-1/2", providing a seamless fit for your pet's entry and exit.

Designed exclusively for Ideal Fast Fit and E-Cat panels, the extension panel is available in a clean, modern white aluminum frame, which is custom-built according to your specific measurements. Compatible with various flap sizes, this extension panel is perfect for both small and large pet doors.

Please note that the Ideal Fast Fit Height Extension Panel is non-returnable due to its custom nature. Expect a 3-5 day shipping delay, as this product is tailored to your unique dimensions. To ensure the correct size, follow the easy calculation formula provided in the product details.

This extension panel is the perfect addition to your existing pet door, saving you money and providing a convenient solution for taller sliding doors. With its modern white aluminum frame and custom-built precision, the Ideal Fast Fit Height Extension Panel is the ideal choice for pet owners seeking a seamless and stylish solution for their sliding door pet doors.

Follow this formula to determine which height extension piece you need. Round your final answer to the nearest whole inch: 

Track Height − Fully Extended Panel Height + 2.125

Example Calculation: 

  • Track Height = 88"
  • Panel Height Adjustment Range = 77.75" - 80.25" 
  • 88" − 80.25" + 2.125" = 9.875" 
  • Round 9.875" to 10"
  • Select the 10" height extension drop-down 


Please Note: If you order a tall height extension piece (10” or greater), the manufacturer recommends screwing the two pieces together and semi-permanently mounting them to the frame of your slider. This will involve drilling into panel's top flange, height extension (careful to avoid getting too close to the glass), and sliding track and securing it with screws that you will need to purchase. The maximum recommended height for the extension is 14", but it can be built up to 16".


Flap Size: Select the same flap size as the Ideal Fast Fit panel you already have or plan to order. Measure the flap and the full width of the panel to double-check you are ordering correctly. 

Please Note: The Ideal Fast Fit patio panel pet door height extension will not fit any other patio pet door panel, so be sure to double-check that your door is an Ideal with the aluminum framing. Also, because it's a custom-built order, it is not returnable after purchase.

Features:

  • Seamless Integration: Perfectly adapts your Ideal Fast Fit patio pet door to uncommon sliding door track heights
  • Custom-built Precision: Based on your precise measurements for a seamless fit
  • Modern Aesthetics: White aluminum frame maintains a clean and contemporary appearance
  • Easy Formula: Simple calculation to determine the required extension height
  • Versatile Application: Ideal for accommodating both small and large pet doors with various flap sizes

Parts

  • Deluxe Pet Door Replacement Flap

Tools

  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • 2 Tamper-Proof Bolts and Nuts

Step 1 Place the Panel in Your Track

  • Place your Fast Fit Panel upright in your sliding door track.

Step 2 Test Fit the Height Extension

  • Ensure the adjustment piece at the top of the panel is in its lowest setting.
  • Slide the Height Adjustment Piece into the ‘U’ shaped flange at the top of the Fast Fit Panel.
  • Gently release the thumbscrews and allow it to rise into the upper track.

Step 3 Attach the Height Extension

  • You can join the two pieces together for a more secure union by purchasing two tamper-proof bolts and nuts at your local hardware store.
  • We recommend using a tamper-proof head on the outside (side opposite the thumbscrews).
  • Drill through the ‘U’ shaped flange of the Fast Fit Panel and lower frame of the height extension piece.
  • Be careful to not drill too close to the glass in the extension piece.
  • Screw the two pieces together.

Step 4 Apply the Weatherstripping

  • Once you have confirmed a proper fit and attached the extension, lay the panel on a flat surface to install weather stripping to each vertical side of the panel and the extension piece.
  • Reinstall and tighten the thumbscrews.
  • If you have a tall Height Extension piece (10” or greater), we recommend screwing the two pieces together and semi-permanently mounting to the frame of your slider by screwing the panel in with brackets.

FAQ

How do I know if I need an extension?

The doggie door extension would work for you only if you have an Ideal sliding glass door height between 75" - 77 1/2", 80 5/16"-93 3/4", or 96"-110 1/2"

How do I figure out the height I need?

Calculate your Ideal extension size by subtracting your current panel height from the maximum height of your sliding door, then add 2-1/8" in order to get the correct height for the door extender. This calculation is the same for the 96" door as well.

What is the maximum height I can get for the fast fit extension?

The maximum height for the extension is 14". It can be built up to 16", but the manufacturer suggests that you then semi-permanently install it for stability for any extension greater than 14".

Can you give me an example?

Certainly. If you measure your track height at 88" exactly, you would then subtract 80 5/16" from 88" equals 7 11/16" and add back 2 1/8" = 9 13/16". Height extender measurement would be specified as 9 13/16" in the dialog box offered.

If I measure incorrectly, can I exchange it?

No. This custom extension panel is built to your exact specifications, so it is non-returnable/non-exchangeable.

Is it better to underestimate or overestimate when measuring?

If you're on the borderline of a measurement, it's better to overestimate a little bit (but not too much) as the panel itself can always be shortened down to the lowest end of its range. That said, do your best to get the most accurate measurement you can.

What is this height extension compatible with?

The height extension for patio pet door is only for Ideal "Fast Fit" Patio Pet Door, Ideal "Fast Fit" Sliding Glass Cat Doors, and Ideal "E-Cat" Electronic Panel Pet Door.

Why does it ask me for flap size?

The flap sizes correspond to a certain width, so we ask this in order to determine the width of your panel.

Then why does it ask me for the width of the panel again?

If you have one of the older Ideal Fast Fit models, it is possible that the width is a little different, so we ask this just to double-check.

Does this work for the Ideal VIP/VPP panels or other panels?

No, this is only compatible with the Ideal "Fast Fit" and "E-Cat" panels.

If my dog door extension only needs to be a few inches tall, will it have glass?

Chance are, no. If it is a short height extension, it will more than likely be aluminum only.

Does this sliding glass dog door extender need to be screwed to the Fast Fit Panel?

For shorter dog door height extension, it is not necessary. However, it can help make the connection between the two more secure. For tall heights, it is necessary to screw the two together.

Will this pet door extender work with other brands of pet doors?

The Height Extension is designed exclusively for the Fast Fit and should not be used with other Ideal models or other pet door brands patio panels.
