Fast Fit™ Panel General Information & Installation Instructions
Fast Fit™ is designed to fit into most sliding patio doors and most sliding screen door openings, measured from inside top track to the inside bottom track. Fast Fit™ Features automatic height adjustment. Panel becomes rigid when knobs located near top of Fast Fit™ are tightened.
Fast Fit™ is designed for easy installation and removal without the use of any tools besides your own two hands and a pair of scissors. For our added protection, a security lock which can be used with or without Fast Fit™ in place has been included. Installation of security lock will require a few basic tools.
- Release automatic height adjustment by turning knobs located near top of panel counter-clockwise. Height adjustment panel should fully extend upward (pull up on panel if necessary).
- Open sliding glass/screen door.
- Insert Fast Fit™ with knobs facing inside. Place top edge into top track of sliding glass/screen door. Lift up and swing lower portion of panel onto ridge in sliding glass door (or screen door.)
- Slide Fast Fit™ against door jamb and make sure that top is fully extended, not tilted to one side, and bottom of panel is on ridge in bottom track (See Figure 1).
- If you need to align your sliding door with your new pet patio door, please refer to the manufacturers sliding door adjustment instructions for our brand od sliding patio door.
- Hand tighten knobs by turning clockwise to lock Fast Fit™ in place. Important: Testing the fit of your Fast Fit™ is imperative. To test fit lift Fast Fit™ upward. If excessive movement is evident, loosen knobs by turning counter-clockwise and pressing in. Adjust as necessary (See Step #4 and repeat).
- To permanently install the Fast Fit™ you may screw through the aluminum fins that protrude on the existing frame of your door. Drill through the fins into the Fast Fit™ (See Figure 2). Two screws in the top and two in the side, approximately 1 ½"-2" from the bottom of door. Do not put any screws into the frame by the glass of the Fast Fit™ as breakage may occur.

The purpose of the Fast Fit™ Bumper Seal is to provide a weather seal and bumper between the edge of Fast Fit™ and your sliding glass door.

Do not press firmly in the event that repositioning is necessary. Note: Be sure that vinyl rubs lightly against glass all the way down length of glass.

Training Your Pet To Use The Fast Fit™ Panel
However, If you have a portable A/C and need a way to expunge the hot air though a sliding glass door, here you go. Just put the robot arm through and you're good. The only other thing I added was weather stripping on both sides, so I'd have some padding between the door and frame. Lastly, I just balled up some rags to seal between the square cat flap and round A/C hose.
So, as a cat door, yeah it seems solid. easy to adjust and strong enough to not give up. The door, although plastic can swing both ways and lock accordingly.
