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 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by beachmom Door looks good IF you can get it installed
I thought this would be a great option for a screen door. And it is. IF you can get it installed. I read other reviews prior to ordering about how difficult this door is to install. What an understatement. My husband spent several hours trying to install the door only to end up ruining it! I now have to order another door but I will pay to have Home Depot install it. That way when they break, they will have to pay for the replacement. It is absurd how difficult the installation is. Highly recommend not frustrating yourself, your spouse or both. Pay for someone else to do the dirty work. :(

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glocoat RETRACTABLE SCREEN DOOR
I love the retractable screen doors, we bought two. They retract so there are no doors to flying back and forth to deal with. I bought one to see it we would like it. Then soon after ordered another we loved the product so much. The only thing I would have liked better, is if they had added a end cap. as to custom fit the screen we had to cut the track top and bottom, it would have been good to have a plastic or rubber piece to put over it to give a finished edge.

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 SedonaRemodeler 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 Bill This product is remarkable
This product is exactly what we wanted. It is made of high quality materials and was easy to install. I needed the bronze color and it matched exactly with our door frame and windows. Very quick delivery and the price was just right. We have ordered a second door and two other people in our community, after seeing the quality, have ordered the screen door for themselves.
