Can the dog door security plate be opened from the outside?

The PlexiDor security plate is attached inside the home and can not be removed from the outside.

Attaching the security platePlexiDor sizes medium, large, and extra large are delivered with a metal security plate that is screwed onto the frame from the inside of the house. The small PlexiDor doesn’t have a security plate since it’s too small for anyone to get through.

There is a sliding track accessory for the PlexiDor that screws on the frame and allows the security plate to be slid into place instead of screwed on. This is also located inside the house.

It is very difficult to force a locked PlexiDor open, and when the security plate is correctly attached, getting through the door from the outside is virtually impossible.

PlexiDor BiteGuard Weather Seal and Lock Issue

This video explains how the weather seal on a new PlexiDor or BiteGuard dog door is designed to overlap to make a good seal. This may make the panel not line up and the lock cam will hit the panel edge. This is normal and will go away with a little time as the ends of the weather seal soften. If this happens at first, just use your hands and push the panel forward gently and they will realign correctly.
