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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbshouse Great door at a reasonable price.
Very happy with this security door. Looks great and installed pretty easily. Easy to let the breeze in and see out without people passing by being able to see in. Best part may be that the screen is metal and my cats can't tear it up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by claritaxoxo Metal screen on door is warped and noisy.
My husband had help installing this door. I did not hear them complain about the door being difficult to install but after installation the opening and closing of the door is rather noisy. It seems as if the perforated sheet metal is warped, nothing that a few extra screws couldn't fix. The concern we have now is locating and purchasing an attachment to keep the bugs from crawling in from the bottom since there is an approx. 1.50" gap between the door jam and the door itself. For the price I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by paul door was worth the price
for what it was it was usable EXCEPT it is not useable in a door frame less than 80" also the screen in the door would let bugs thru AND I have Never paid SHIPPING when bought from STORE, when returned the Store got a different interpretation of the fine print. Shipping is always free to store,or so I thought.
