Pride Replacement Flaps for Johnson & PetSafe Pet Doors
These flaps and doors have been discontinued by Pet Safe after 40 some years on the market. The Pride replacement flaps fit the Johnson frame. If you want to replace the flap, that is the best answer.But, you can be assured that our affiliated manufactures know how to make a dog door flap better than anyone else on Earth. You won't find pet doors like this made by Petsafe, Johnson, Hale pet door, or Plexidor (Pet Doors USA). Specialty doors like this are also hard to find at Petsmart, Petco, The Home Depot or Lowes. But, you can find them here at the best pricing anywhere.Pet doors have gotten better over the years, and today's quality pet doors are quite a bit more weather tight and don't have the problem common to the Johnson (and Pride) doors in which the U shaped part of the flap pulls out of the frame. A problem with replacing the Johnson doors is that their U-shaped outer flap makes the hole that is cut for the pet door quite a bit larger than a door which does not have a 2 piece flap. For this reason you often need to purchase the next size up for a single flap. If you have a medium you might need to purchase a large, a large might require an extra large to replace it, etc.Johnson was around the 1950's. The company that produced Johnson pet doors was bought by Petsafe (Radio Systems), who then produced the same design under the name Petsafe Ultimate. These doors were later discontinued and replacements are no longer made. A company by the name of Pride produces a pet door of similar design, and their flaps have been used to successfully replace the flaps in hundreds of Johnson and Petsafe Ultimate pet doors! As late at the early 2000's, the Johnson extra-large was identical to the Pride extra-large except for the material of the flap and the locking cover. , which attaches differently at the top. Some people have been able to modify this flap to work in their pet doors, but it will not be a simple installation like with the medium, large and extra-large.
