Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PropertyManager Easy to Install!
After a rash of break-ins I had to give the tenants some added security. This 30" door fit beautifully on to the back doors of eight units! Having to buy so many, the owner was happy with the price. Having to install so many, the maintenance man was happy with the ease of installation. Feeling more secure, the tenants are VERY happy and as the property manager, I am happy when everything runs smoothly and everyone is happy!.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nina This product has great quality and easy to instal
We did order it and pick it up in Home Depot. We never had an experience for installation. We did google and find youtube video. My husband and me made this installation in the same day when we got this security screen door from Home Depot. It was easy to add a lock too. Now we enjoy to keep the door open and screen door protect garage and house from fly insects. It is secured! It is look nice! Now we are thinking to get the security screen door for the front enter and do it yourself.

Got two on sale at $64.00 each for the sliding door.
Great value for the money compared to the pre-made security door for sliding door priced at $405.00 each.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mel1982 Good security, but lacking as a screen door!
These doors weren't too difficult to install, however, I say that as the girl who sat back and watched her husband and father install them. So for ME, it was effortless. For them... Minimal swearing, so it couldn't have been TOO bad. I think the only problems that they had were more related to the crookedness of our house/door frames.
These doors have unique (giant) one way screws to install the frame for the door, meaning they screw in easy enough, but there's no way to screw them out using a screw driver. So get it right the first time, or you'll be using pliers to get the screws out, which can be time consuming.
As for the doors themselves... These work well as security screen doors. The screen part is metal, so it can't be punched or stabbed through easily, like regular screen doors. They have 2 holes, one for a lockable door knob, and one for a dead bolt, which gives you two times the protection. I would feel safe leaving our front door open with the screen door locked, even if I was in another room or another floor of the house. So the feeling of security is there, without a doubt.
There are a few drawbacks to security screen doors vrs regular screen doors. For example, the holes in the "screen" part of the security door are about 3/16", which is plenty big for ants, mosquitos, spiders, bees, and more than likely, stink bugs to get through. My way of overcoming this challenge is to purchase a roll of regular screen, cut it to the size of the door, and fasten it to the door using strong magnets (since the door is metal). Maybe not the best way to handle this, but it'll do for now!
The other issue I can see with these doors, as compared to regular screen doors, is that there's no way to "winterize" them, since there is no glass involved. Regular screen doors typically have glass to replace the screen during the winter, but these doors don't have anything like that.
Overall, I'm satisfied with this purchase. We bought these doors mainly for some added security, and I feel like we have accomplished that goal.
