Hale Door Model Pet Door

This model can only be installed in a "person" door. For wall installations, see our Hale Wall Mounted Pet Door.

This In-Door Mounted pet door is one of Hale's best-selling doors. Its self-framing and self-supporting design is one of the easiest to install on your own and (depending on your skills!) may not even require a handyman for installation. This door model fits most doors 1 3/8" to 2" thick and works perfectly with wood, metal, hollow core, raised panel and even French doors.

To convert your regular door into a door with a pet door, just cut the correct size rough opening in the door, slip the inside and outside frames together and attach them together with the screws provided.

In addition, all Door-Mounted models now come with a FREE Raincap, an awning-like attachment that hooks onto the top edge of the outside frame and helps protect the pet door (and your house) from water intrusion. The Raincap works as a part of Hale Pet Door's water containment and diversion system to help prevent moisture intrusion - a feature that adds years to the life of your pet door.

*Note on Optional Exterior Security Cover: Choosing this option makes your pet door a "custom" door for return policy purposes and entitles you to 50% credit towards the purchase of a new door should you need to return your door for any reason.

Why buy a Hale pet door?

  • Strong, Durable, and Long Lasting - Hale Pet Doors will not break on you, unlike cheaper doors. The frames are made of extruded aluminum with steel-reinforced corners, and are far superior to plastic or pressed metal frames. The door flaps are made of PVC vinyl, stronger and longer lasting than most other commonly used materials.
    Maximum energy efficiency = cost efficiency = money saved - The weather-resistant flaps, combined with ultra strong alnico magnets and nylon pile weather-stripping provide great protection from the wind and weather. The double flap option also provides additional insulation in even the harshest of climates.
  • Works with any size pet - Hale doors come in *12* different sizes, making it easy to find a size to fit any any breed of dog, cat, or other small animal.
  • Secures your home - All doors include a shock, impact, and fire resistant King Starboard Polymer security cover to keep out intruders and pests alike! Covers are secured with a strong steel pin lock attached to the frame itself (unlike many other pet doors) preventing the lock from being opened from the outside.
  • Keeps your house and door dry and clean - The included rain cap, caulking, rain resistant cover and flap all work in harmony to prevent water from getting in your home. They also help protect from wind, dust, debris, and the elements. 
  • Easy customer support - Experienced technicians are available by phone for installation or technical help. Also, all Hale pet doors include a comprehensive 5-year no-fault warranty!
  • Made in the U.S.A. - All Hale pet doors are manufactured in the United States with the greatest attention to detail.


  • Flap Size: 12 standard sizes available from small to giant. Use the size chart above, or click on the Sizing & Measuring tab for more details.
  • Flap Type: Double Flap (one flap on each door surface) is standard and recommended as it provides improved insulation and energy efficiency. Single Flap can be used in situations where insulation is not needed (i.e. installing in an interior door inside the home)
    • Optional Training Flap - Additional flap, use for a limited time when pet is timid and getting used to the pet door.
  • Frame color: Available in four color choices. Note, the Security Cover color will be a complimentary color, very close to the color of the frame.
    • Beige - hard coat paint, looks like coffee with a couple of creamers added.
    • Brushed Aluminum - anodized metal, satin nickel color, looks like the bottom of a Coke can.
    • Dark Bronze - anodized metal, chocolate brown, looks almost black in dimmer light.
    • White - white hard coat paint.
    • Mixed Frame Color - In the shopping cart Special Instructions section, just write in the color you would like for the Exterior Frame, the color for the Interior Frame.
  • Security Cover Load Direction: Standard is top loading. Also available in side loading model if there is an obstruction above door. A right side load will have the security cover slight to the right of the door pet door, when looking at it from the inside. A left side load will open to the left of the pet door.
  • Optional Secondary Exterior Cover: Choose this option if you would like a second cover on the exterior of your pet door.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Choosing this option makes your pet door a "custom" door for return policy purposes and entitles you to 50% credit towards the purchase of a new door should you need to return your door for any reason.
    • Secondary Exterior Cover Load Direction: Load direction is determined by looking at the door. If you want both covers to load from the same side of the door, you would need to order one as "left side load" and the other as "right side load". Also remember if you plan on using the optional raincap, you must specify a side load direction for the exterior cover.

Hale Pet Door Size Chart - A Size to Fit Any Animal and Application

The easiest way to test flap size for your pet is to cut a hole in a piece of cardboard that is the size of the flap you are interested in, then coax your pet through (use treats if necessary!). Place the cardboard in the opening of a door so they have to walk through the hole to get to the reward! See what flap size and step-over height (height from floor to bottom of the flap) works best, so you know what flap size to buy and at what height to install your new door for the most comfortable configuration for your pet.

Great Door!

You might be able to see in the picture, our last pet door was inset into the patio door. It was plastic and didn’t last 5 months. Plastic doors are cruel to begin with because that whack the pet on the nose as they come through. Since this is a patio setting we used a single flap. At first the dogs didn’t like the sound of the magnets clacking but they got used to it. No more getting slapped in the face as they run through it to guard their territory from “invaders”. My patio guy liked it so much he was going to start using it for his installations. I like the great selection of colors and the ability to buy a replacement flap when the time comes. We bought taller than we needed for future dogs.

Super dog door!

Very high quality!!! Super happy with our dog door, and no air leaks in with our very cold winter temperatures! SO wish I'd ordered this years ago!!! Our Alaskan Malamutes can come in and go out as they please. I am the happiest one; I no longer have to open the door every few minutes for them!

Sturdy door

I got the medium size door for a 7 lb. Yorkshire Terrier, a 10 lb. chihuahua mix, and 2 adult cats. It was a good choice. The door is very well made and our handyman didn't have any trouble installing it securely in a small window that leads to a screened porch. The cats learned to use it right away, but the dogs are reluctant to push on the door to open it, so we have to help them even after 2 weeks. I've read that you can remove the magnets on some doors during the training period, but these magnets are attached with rivets. And they are strong magnets. We are making slow progress with the dogs and I'm confident they will enjoy their independence once they learn to push. We're very happy with the purchase and would highly recommend this door.
