Plexidor Wall and Door Mount Dog Doors: Reviews
Plexidor Wall Mount Dog Door
A wall mounted dog door that is virtually indestructible and very high strength
Can be installed into stud, brick, block or cement walls up to 12 inches thick
Has hardened aluminum frames that come in a silver, white or bronze finish
Goes well with appliances, interior walls or hardwood floors
Has no flaps and requires no replacement flaps – has high strength saloon-style plexiglass panels
4 sizes of the door available – small, medium, large and extra large
Extra large is for dogs up to 220 lbs, and has an opening that is 16 inches wide by 23 3/4 inches high
Has good security – all sizes except the small size comes with lock, key and steel security plate
Has a guarantee for being chew proof
Has an energy efficient weather seal
Made in the USA
Has a 5 or 10 year limited residential warranty
Includes an aluminium tunnel that connects the interior and exterior frame
Not a cheap dog door, and for the list of cons, the product should be a bit cheaper than it is
Instructions that come with the dog door are not as good as they could be
The aluminium frame could be higher quality
The hardware that comes with the door could be higher quality
Installation is a bit tricker than it should be – if you aren’t good with your hands it’s worth getting a professional to install for you
You have to screw the security plate into place with non standard screws. The slide in channels don’t come standard with the kit – you have to buy them extra which for the price isn’t fantastic
Once installed, the door works well for big dogs and is strong and secure. It’s easy to use.
But, installation could be easier, the hardware and the frame could be higher quality for the price of the product, and the security panel should be easier slide or secure in and out

How Do You Install This Pet Door?
There’s no substitute for following the manufacturer’s instructions for installing their Pet Door product which should come with the door, or should be found on their website. They may also have YouTube videos to help you.
But generally, for most Pet Doors you need to cut out a section of the door or wall, insert and fix a frame or tunnel extender into the wall or door, and then fix the door onto the frame.
This may involve using a jigsaw or cutting tool, a drill, a screwdriver (can be phillips head or sometimes a non standard screw is included in the kit so check this), and the hardware included in the pet door kit.
Sliding doors and aluminium frame installs are generally easier as there’s usually no cutting, but just rather inserting and sometimes fixing involved.
Some people choose to install themselves, whilst some people choose to get a professional handyperson to do it for them.
