Sliding Track: Features and Benefits

PlexiDor dog doors size large, medium, and extra large are delivered with a steel security plate that screws onto the pet door frame. The plate is a great tool for securing the home, and for signaling to pets that the door is locked. Using the sliding tracks, it takes seconds to mount the plate.

Simply attach the left and right tracks to the interior frame, and slide the steel security plate down the track into place. The tracks attach to the dog door’s interior frame using just a screw driver, and the security plate slides down to its optimal position.

Secure the plate with the handy flip lock feature and you’re finished. The tracks are made of strong and durable aluminum, and they’re available in silver, white, or bronze in sizes medium, large or extra large.

Hardware for track installation is included, but not the security plate itself.

  1. Doug

    Using the security plate to manage when pets are allowed to go out is a real nuisance without this accessory – that said the price is hard to stomach. It’s disappointing that this isn’t a standard item. I don’t mind paying for quality, but this feels like being taken to the cleaners for the cost of correcting a bad design.

    • Bill Zahn

      Doug the tracks are an item that we added about 6 years ago so people would have the option to slide the cover in
      We do not include the tracks with the Plexidor because some customers will not use the tracks and prefer not to pay extra for the add on
      In the 20 + years of the Plexidor’s history, many dog owners did not use the cover at all, or only when they went away for an extended period of time. For shorter periods, the locking panels provide the extra security they needed. So, when using the key lock for security all you need is a sign so the dogs do not run at a locked Plexidor. For example, a ribbon or a even he cover leaning on the Plexidor lets the dog know the door is locked and your house is secure.

    We absolutely love the convenience and strength of the “large sliding track”. The only regret was that we didn’t buy it sooner!

PlexiDor offers three elegant colors to compliment the decor' of your home.

Choose from White, Silver or Bronze. Silver frames feature an anodized finish. White and Bronze frames feature a baked-on powder coating for increased durability, similar to the appliances in your home. A PlexiDor Pet Door is by far the most attractive pet door you will ever install in your home.

Our finishes will integrate perfectly into your home!

  • The white finish highlights common household appliances as well as most baseboards and trims and blends with most traditional decors.
  • The silver finish coordinates with newer stainless-steel appliances and looks great in a modern setting.
  • The bronze finish works well with darker toned furniture and accessories by adding an updated feel to the room.

A baked-on powder coated finish is far more durable than conventional paint. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping,  scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes.

Each time you open the door to let your dog out, your
HEATING and COOLING escapes.

Your Average Monthly Energy Bill: Annual Amount Spent 5 Year Total 5% Savings 7% Savings 10% Savings
$100 $1,200 $6,000 $300 $400 $600
$150 $1,800 $9,000 $450 $630 $900
$200 $2,400 $12,000 $600 $840 $1,200

Above estimates are based on average seasonal temperatures and household temperature settings. Results are typical of PlexiDor owners and are based on more than 25 years of customer feedback. Individual results may vary based on household insulation, age and size of home.

Safety for you and your pet is our highest priority. Each door comes with a lock and key and a steel plate that can be easily attached on for extra security.

Lock and Key
All models come with a lock and two keys for everyday use. Just turn the key to lock out unwanted guests. Heavy duty steel lock visible only from the inside resists tampering. The small size door has a four-way lock that can be set to open, locked, open for entry, and open for exit.

Steel Security Plate
Medium and large size PlexiDor dog doors include a steel security plate that screws on easily when you leave for an extended period of time. To use the security plate daily, install the optional PlexiDor Sliding Track – so the door can be conveniently dropped into place and closed with a flip lock in seconds. Small size doors are too small for an intruder to enter and do not come with the steel security door.

Installing your PlexiDor Pet Door at the correct height will ensure the door is comfortable for your pet to use. Stepping up and through the door is best.
