Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JKK213 Can use efficiently for French doors (reverse magnet on one door). Very attractive.
I had to obtain two for French doors. The prior review indicated that the contact magnets were weak. You need to reverse the magnets. The magnet is supposed to attach to the other side of the sill not another screen door. The magnet will repel the other magnet. The only problem is that once you reverse the magnet, the pull is so strong that it can be difficult to open. For me this is great since I normally do not enter/exit out of this door. I imagine there could be some coating one could put on the magnet to lessen the pull if this is a regular exit door. The screen is very attractive. This is a bug protection only. Small children and pets can push through the bottom of the screen door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Remodeler2008 ATTRACTIVE, FUNCTIONAL & ALMOST INVISIBLE
We like to entertain friends on the upstairs balcony outside our kitchen and were constantly opening, propping, bumping, and being loudly slammed into by our old self-closing metal screen door. We tried the Velcro magnet screens advertised on TV but they were a joke. Happily found this lightweight magnetic sliding screen door; it is quiet, well-made and easily operated with one hand. Lets traffic in and out carrying refreshments without obstructing because it disappears into the door frame. We've used it 3 months and love it...be aware though, the bronze screen is an insect-repelling fine mesh, so unaware guests might walk into it when closed...and because it rolls up, it doesn't permit warning "decals". Our expert handyman installed it in less than an hour from opening the box to finishing it, including taking the old door & closer off. Overall, a very nice improvement for our needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry Excellent Product!
Instructions were complete and easy to follow. Product is of the highest quality and works well. I had to install two of them because of the width of my front door which includes two sidelights, I'm also adding two pairs of slide bolts even though both doors are moveable to provide a small measure of security in case we're in the back yard and the front door is open. Finally, I found the customer service people at ODL extremely knowledgeable and helpful.Can't say enough nice things about this company and their product.

Have wanted one of these for years and finally purchsed. Had been told by another person that it is difficult to install but my husband is very handy and he did it with no problems. He did look online and found a video which was very helpful to review prior to the installation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CMSgtLou A Great Value With Excellent Quality Components
I was impressed with the outcome, as was my wife. Once installed, the screen is solid as a rock and operates smoothly every time. I've only used it for a few days so I can't attest to its durability, but I am confident it will last a long time if opened and closed properly. Installation was pretty simple if you can read and follow simple instructions. My only disappontment (and it's minor) is the way the bottom track will require some "modification" of the base plate before I can consider the installation complete. I just don't care for the "out of the box" appearance and the dip created by the bottom track base plate. It's fixable and won't be a problem when I'm done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FirstAmendment Looks great, fully functional in letting my German Shepherd to stay indoors
I really like this product. I read the reviews on Amazon and they were 'ok' but it was mostly because people tried to install it themselves but weren't up to the task. I admit that I had a different type step that required an extra piece of trim (wood) to complete but the install was straightforward you just have to plan for the time and possible finishing touches. Looks great, functional and lets the ocean breeze in while keeping the German Shepherd in.... Win

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fidalgobob There was some customizing due to the existing threshhold configuration
It was easy to install, but the bottom track had to be buttressed because it sits lower than the threshhold, and was subject to being scuffed out of alinement by shoes. The screen is so clear I had to but paper price tags on it so it could be seen when open..
The return spring is very strong!
