I am replacing the worn and torn flaps in a dog-door. The material is flexible transparent vinyl 1/8 inch thick, 9.5" wide by 19" long.
The replacement material was shipped rolled in a tight cylinder and as a result curls badly instead of hanging straight down.
What is a good way to get this sort of material to flatten out ?

Roll it up the opposite direction and lay it in a warm place, like in the sun. When it is pretty close, lay it flat in the sun, perhaps between some flat and heavy objects.
