Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cavelez Good once installed, a bit flimsy and delicate when cutting to size
The door did not come with instructions on how to cut to size, had to search on internet, once all the hardware was removed we cut with a chop saw, the material is very brittle and we were not able to get clean cuts, maybe with a hand saw but we didnt try, also when cutting the individual panels keep sliding up and down and may cause you to end up with uneven panels so be carefull before cutting make sure they are all alligned at the other end. It was a pain to disasemble cut, re assembe and install, lots of holes in the wall but once installed it looks ok (not great). Not sure how long it will hold up thou because as mentioned the plastic the panels are made of is very brittle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carlos Great solution.
I need to cover a big opening ( ex window) between my kitchen and a sun room. I bought two of this doors and install both together . I have to trim the door to the size of the window. It is a little bit of work but I watch first in YouTube how to do it.
After two hours of work both doors where trim and installed.
Now I can close it and divide the Sun room from the rest of the house and avoid heat coming inside the house.
It look nice too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 03windrider Good value, so-so instructions
This product is pretty much as advertised, though it might take a little longer to install than you might expect. Once you've installed one, the instructions make sense, but what they don't ever tell you is how to alter the height of the door for non-standard doorways. This actually isn't too hard, and here's how:
By design, the length of the door makes it clear the floor by 1/2" (it's 1/2" shy of the advertised height once it's hanging from the track). I bought a 96" door and needed to hang it in a 87.5" doorway, and I also wanted it to hang closer to the floor, so I cut 96-87.5-.25=8.25" off the BOTTOM of the door. Keep the door bundled together in its wrapping and banding except for removing the tracks (slide them out) and removing the wrapping in the vicinity of the cut. Use a miter box and a fine-toothed saw (I got one at Home Depot for about $16). Once you've cut cleanly through the door, you need to remove all the little screws (there were about 30 in my 48" wide door) from the cut off end (easier if you keep the ends together on the splines and use a drill-driver with a small phillips bit) and screw them into the bottom of the door (where you made the cut). Make sure the splines and door panels are flush when the screws are re-inserted, and don't over-tighten -- you can split the plastic. Now, just hang the door as instructed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 48 by 96 white folding door
I have a new home and a large arch between kitchen and washroom. We bought the 48 by 96 by fold door. when it came in it was packaged so the door wasn't damaged at all. It was a little to long so we didn' know what to do. We called the number on the paper and the Girl at home Depot told us how to remove the screws and cut the door. We did and i am so happy. The door is very good quality and so glad we purchased it..It looks great in our new home. Bert

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PhilStevens Sturdy, medium-duty and easy to install
The product is exactly how it was described, so we had no surprises when we opened the box. We used 2 sets to fill an 80-inch opening. It was good to have some extra width available as the magnet catches probably would not hold if the doors was stretched their full 48 inches.

We needed to purchase sheet rock anchors to keep it up, but other than that, the doors do a great job of covering an 8'x8' opening and join together perfectly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stiltz Was perfect for my needs!
I needed an accordion door to segregate the unfiinished half of my basement so my toddler could not get through, but my cats could, so I needed something that I could cut a cat door into. This door is designed to be easily cut to the height you require. I was also able to cut an opening for the cats. You have the be VERY careful when cutting because the material will splinter. I had to cut ~18" off the bottom (which was the easy part) to get the correct height, and then I practiced cutting the cat opening on the 18" piece that was to be discarded, so that I would do it right when it mattered! I was initially disappointed that the latch mechanism is just magnets, but they are VERY strong magnets. I only use 2 of the 3 that came with it and it is still sufficient to keep my toddler out. Heck.. even I have to struggle sometimes to open it! This product is very easy to mount and works well. The material is pretty flimsy, but I did a good amount of research before buying and, for the price versus the functionality, this is the best value you will find. It also looks great when installed. Perhaps not the right door for the living room of a million dollar home, but perfect for the average person's closet or basement!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FarmSquatch Good value, well engineered
Door is well engineered and assembled. It looks great and is easy to use when installed. We placed two of the same units side by side to cover an opening just under 8" wide. The hangers glide easily and the door compresses without wanting to creep back from the full open position. The magnetic catches work well.
The choice of materials for the hanging track I have long term questions about- being that it's rigid vinyl- durability in a heavy use, or potentially ruckus environment with kids might be problematic.
Instructions to cut the unit down in height were not included. It took a while to disassemble, cut and reassemble the units, but it worked out and operates well, be patient!
All in all a great value on a functional and pleasant looking product.
