Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DMF Works, but tough to install
Purchased this item from the local Home Depot store reluctantly after very poor reviews.
My opinion about this product is that it provides good value for the price. I agree with other reviewers that it is challenging to install. It took me and my wife about 2 hours end-to-end to do it, including working around a crooked door frame. But once installed It looks nice and it works as expected.

Nothing easy about this. 'EZ' U-channel design is flimsy at best. Plus trying to get the screen into the u-channel was like hearding cats. Screen is extremely flimsy when installed. Waste of money. Dont buy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by absnmsn Slams shut
I am very unhappy with this product. At first I was patient about the poor quality of the product and the fact that I had to work hard to adjust it to fit my door frame... The last straw was when I installed the door closer. The door slams shut no matter how much adjusting I do to the adjustment screw. Turning it both clockwise and counterclockwise has resulted in nothing but loud slamming. I bought two screen doors and both are of poor quality and both door closers do not function properly. I've cross referenced between both the manual and multiple internet instructions (from personal instructions to video tutorials). There is absolutely no reason for it not to work.

This is the worst hardware store product I have ever bought. It's hard to adjust to the opening and once installed will twist and bend. The kicker for me was the supplied closer which is impossible to adjust. The door just slams on you as you enter the house. I returned the closer assuming it was defective. The second one was the same. No one at Home Depot could help with the adjustment and the maker has no way to contact them on their website. Stay away from this screen door.

The quality of the door hardware is as bad as anything I've ever purchased. Both of the door width adjustment screws stripped put almost immediately, so I drilled them out and used self tapping sheet metal screws to adjust the width. The reason why is that even though the door is white, all the hardware is black. Then, after getting it installed, I went to install the closer, only to find a big dent in it. This was from the factory, because neither the interior or exterior packaging had any damage.
I tried to find a phone number for customer service to order a new closer and they don't have one listed on their website.
If I didn't live 90 minutes from the nearest Home Depot, I would have taken it back, but I will keep it and make do. This is the worst quality item I have ever purchased from Home Depot.

I bought 2 of these doors and gave up trying to install them. NOTHING seemed to fit right even though I bought the correct sized door. I'm super disappointed with this door.

The instructions missed an important point, namely that there are long screws in the side where the handle is to be put. Following the instructions in the online video (the printed instructions were unclear) I put the handle right where the screws were. There were screw heads on the sides at the point, but I figured they were surface screws and no problem. As it turned out they were 2 1/2" long. A royal pain to work around it. Took a huge amount of time. Because of this the handle didn't work right either. in the process it broke and I had to buy a replacement at Ace Hardware (we live in a rural area a long way from Home Depot and could get back to the store.) Even with the replacement, it still works hard due to the screws in the way. I measured the vertical dimensions carefully as per the instructions, but the side channel still came up short by a half inch. The ends of the bottom channel are open with no plug of any sort which means they are not only ugly, but they will catch dirt and insects. The construction is poor in that it rattles. I had to stuff caulk in where the vertical rods are inserted to keep them from rattling. All in all it is a poor product. I definitely do not recommend.

Whatever happened with quality control? My doorway measures 36x80 and supposedly the screen door I purchased did also. The screen door is 35" width, after stretching as far as possible and 78 1/2 in length.. IF the door fitted I would give rave reviews however, I can't. For an additional $14.99 or $49.99 I get make the necessary adjustments. My installer even offered to give back the money I gave him........not his fault.
