It was time to replace the old shades on our two sunroom doors. I was looking for something to let the light in but also keep the dogs from pushing aside to look out. These are perfect! I ordered them from Home Depot and picked them up at the store. My husband and I are in our mid sixties and we installed them very easily. The first one took a little longer since we had to figure out how to remove the shade. The second one took 10 minutes! The deadbolt lock was too close to the casing on the second door so I just snapped out the plastic casing as instructed. They thought of everything! The dogs are happy! I'm happy! Easy peasy!

We could not be happier with this product. Such a simple fix for the ugly mini blinds on our back door. No more swinging, clanging, dirty mini blinds. It adds a nice look to the door as well. We've noticed reduced noise from outside as well as increased energy efficiency in our back door. It sticks out about 1 1/2" from the door, but it just looks like a decorative feature of the door. My husband installed these in about 10-15 minutes. I just wish we would have discovered this product sooner!

We have a French door that consists of a center door to go in and out and two smaller, hinged sidelights with screens that you can open for ventilation. This door is in our bedroom so we wanted a way to cover the windows in addition to the curtains. When we purchased the door 10 years ago, the only thing we could find to cover the glass were Hunter Douglas shades that cost over $600, never fit right, constantly broke and were a poor solution to the problem. I have been looking for a solution for years and finally found it! A few weeks ago I came upon the ODL add-on blinds available through Home Depot and saw the good reviews, so we ordered them and installed them last week.
I can't tell you how happy I am with them compared to what we had. They were easy to install, and I was able to patch the holes we had to put in the fiberglass doors for the old shades and paint the ODL frames to match the doors so they look like they were always there.
We ran into a couple of glitches during the install, because the upper clips were a little too big for the small 7 inch wide side windows, but we figured out a way to work around the problem. Because they are blinds, they aren't quite as good for blocking out the early morning sun if you want to sleep in as the honeycomb blinds were, but that is something we can live with easily.
We were disappointed when we picked them up at the store, because we are entitled to a military discount at Home Depot, but they said we couldn't have it for items purchased online, even though we went to the store and picked them up, but even without the discount they cost half what the Hunter Douglas blinds cost almost 10 years ago. I have attached some pictures so you can see how they look. I included a picture of the outside of the door so you can see how the window frame is raised, but the ODL frame fits over it perfectly. We are happy homeowners getting this problem resolved!

We were looking for a replacement door with an integrated blind when we came across this unit. It is attractive and easy to install and use and, best of all, it is much cheaper than buying the replacement door! I highly recommend this product. My only suggestion to the manufacturers would be to produce an off-white blind color as well.

I purchased 2 add-on blinds and picked them up at my local Home Depot; they were very easy to install, my husband had them installed in less than an hour. I love the appearnce and they fit the windows in my French doors perfectly. I have owned them about 3 weeks and have no complaints. I had sheers covering the windows before but these let me so much more light when they are opened. Remeber to clean the enclosed glass on the blinds before installing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Easy to install
The enclosed blinds were easy to install and work great. The are a little heavy, however, and caused the door to sag a bit making it bind a little. I have not had a chance to adjust it. However, I think that I can tighten the upper hinge screws or use longer hinge screws to straighten it out. Great product. Work wonderfully.

It took all of 5 minutes to install. Looks great. With the old blinds when the kids ran out the door the blinds would tangle and bang on the door. Looks so professional.
