Product Details


Dragon panels are designed to fit into recessed 'U' shaped tracks, however, since many sliding glass doors now have a raised track, we've designed a metal monorail track adapter for aluminum panels to accommodate most raised track designs. The adapter hugs the monorail and provides a channel for the metal pet door panel to fit in, ensuring that your pet door panel is stable and secure. This adapter works for the aluminum Dragon panels. It is not compatible with vinyl panels.

Additional Notes:

  • The adapter comes with two sets of guide holes pre-punched in both sections to allow for shorter or taller tracks. Dry Fit (test) which side fits your track best.
  • You will need to drill the holes through your panel. Before drilling holes into your panel, test to see which side fits your track best.
  • Screws and Cap Nuts will need to be purchased to fit your unique installation. Make sure the screws purchased will have a little extra length in order for Cap Nuts to fit over them. 
  • This part is only for aluminum (not vinyl) Dragon panels

FAQ

Does this work for every brand of pet door insert?

No, this monorail adaptor is made specifically for Endura Flap, Dragon, and Whiskers & Windows Thermo panels. It does not work with Endura vinyl panels. 

How do I tell if my sliding glass door has a monorail track or not?

If your track is elevated above floor level, it is a monorail track. The Thermo Panel is made to slip into recessive sliding door tracks with the sides of the track holding the panel in place. The adapter mimics recessive sliding door tracks so that the Thermo Panel will stand upright.

Will the adapter make it harder to install my pet door?

It depends on how handy you are. The adapter must be installed into the bottom of the Thermo Panel, which requires drilling and other tools. You can review the installation instructions to see if it matches your skill level. If not, we recommend getting in contact with a professional.

Will the monorail track adapter break my apartment's security deposit?

While the Thermo Panel can normally be installed tools-free, the monorail adapter requires you to screw the panel into your sliding door way. It is only a few screws that can easily be removed at the end of your lease. It is best that you check in with your landlord to see what is allowed in your apartment or not, but as is, the monorail adapter requires your Thermo Panel to be semi-permanently installed.

How do I know what size to get?

You need to order the size that corresponds to the size of your pet door flap. For example, if you ordered a small Endura Flap pet door, you should order the small monorail adapter.

Warranty

Dragon Pet Doors have a one-year warranty for normal wear & tear and manufacturing defects.

Installation Instructions

TOOLS REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION

  • - Drill with a 3⁄8“ bit for drilling metal
  • - 2x 1 1⁄4" screws
  • - 2x Cap nuts (or nuts with protective caps)
  • - Clamps

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Please Note: Before drilling into your panel, test fit which side of the monorail adapter (1” or 1 ½) depth will fit over your track the best without any gaps. Additionally, Please review the installation instructions included with your panel to familiarize yourself with the installation guidelines.  

This installation requires two people.

Step 1: Test fit the adapter on your monorail track to determine which side fits your monorail height the best, 1” or 1 ½.  The opposite channel will hold your pet door panel.  Mark the side for the panel so you can properly drill the holes.

Step 2: Lay the panel on a table with the Height Adjustment Locks facing up. Clamp it to the table.

Step 3: Take the adapter side and place it with the pre-punched holes and line it up on the bottom of the panel, facing up. Take the second piece and put that on the back side of the panel, clamping both pieces to the bottom of the panel.

Step 4: With the end of the panel hanging slightly off the table, drill the holes straight through the panel and adapter pieces (all the way until the drill bit punches through the other side of the adapter).

Step 5: Remove the panel from the table. Remove the clamps, holding the adapter to the panel.

Step 6: Apply weather stripping to sides of panel (included upon the purchase of your panel).

Step 7: Have one person hold the panel in place over the monorail track, leaving at least ¼” of space between the bottom of the panel and the track.

Step 8: The second person needs to slide the adapter pieces together onto the inside and outside face of the patio panel so that they overlap and sandwich the panel and track.

Step 9: With the second person still holding the panel, gently lower it until it is resting on the adapter pieces, and the adapter channel is resting on the sliding door track.  Put the two screws through the holes and screw the cap nuts on (or nuts with protective caps). 

Step 10: Double check to make sure that the screw end is not protruding and there are no sharp edges sticking out.

Step 11: Gently release the Height Adjustment Locks so that the height adjustment piece rises into the upper track. Tighten the Height Adjustment Locks to affix the top tension adjustment piece in place.

Step 12: Assure that the panel is stable and fixed in place. Then have the second person release the panel.
