: Some sites say you MUST use a Vinyl Insert with
Vinyl Sliders. This is INCORRECT. As long as the center rail in the
channel on the floor is 1/4" or less as you look down on it, any of
our models will work.
Note Regarding Vinyl Patio Inserts: "Vinyl" Inserts are a newer offering in Sliding
glass door pet inserts. Another description of these inserts is "Plastic". They
are typically thicker than aluminum inserts, and require the customer to permanently
install them with hardware and screws. Most aluminum inserts can be used in
a permanent or semi-permanent installation making them more popular and friendly
for pet owners.
Having either vinyl, wood or aluminum sliding
doors does not mean you need the same type of pet insert. Aluminum inserts are
the most popular choices for all sliding door customers.
