What makes the PlexiDor shut without gravity helping? Does it stay shut?

PlexiDor frame colorsThe PlexiDor dog doors and cat door have spring hinges that bring the panels closed immediately after the pet goes through the door. The PlexiDor will stay closed up to approximately 30 mph direct wind.

In extreme weather conditions, we recommend keeping pets inside and locking the pet door.

Some areas have frequent high winds, and it may be helpful to install the pet door through a wall. That way it’s possible to construct something outside to baffle the wind.

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.
