Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gus Safe at night, and the cats stay in.
The measurements advertised made the door just fit, and luckily all the fasteners are secure. This is the third steel security door I've installed, so the process of aligning is easy. I love the look both inside and out. I only wish there was a door that would take the key-pad lock set.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYguy Surface Mount Security Door
The security door mounts outside the door casing. Support the door on wooden blocks when checking alignment and marking the pilot holes. For ease of installation, drill pilot holes close to the diameter of the one-way wood screws. I recommend ordering the adjustable Seal Kit to keep out flying and crawling insects. I installed a new metal threshold (make a cardboard template before cutting the metal to shape) and the top spacer in order to create a tight seal.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cat Attractive and sturdy security door
We chose this to replace the screen door on our new house with this door because we needed something that would let in the breeze while still providing security and also hold up to small dogs occasionally jumping on it. We wanted something sturdy and attractive, and this door definitely fits the bill.
The door arrived with no damage and no missing parts, so the little project started out well. But it was soon obvious that the door was too short for the opening. This was mentioned by other reviewers as well. We had to purchase a door sweep and attach with double sided tape to correct the large gap. We did follow other reviewers' very helpful advice and used regular screws to mount the door.
A bonus about this door is that you can see out quite clearly through the perforations, while people outside can't see in, so it gives a lot of privacy as well (providing it's lighter outside than it is inside, so this pretty much is reversed at night.)
We've had the door six months now, installed on our covered patio, and there are a couple rust spots showing through the white finish. *sigh*

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DaveInTexas Door Installed, here's how it went:
I like the door. It works well. Minor issues: a) the distance between the holes in the frame from one side to the other mean that the door frame attached within only 1/2" of edge of the trim in my standard size door opening. The distance between them is not shown in the specs and the mfg in Az said they did not know the distance so I just took a chance and bought it. b) this is not a fault of the door but if there is no stud exactly where those holes you are out of luck unless you want to tear the trim off your house and nail in some 2x4s. I suspect a lot of them are screwed only into the trim. The door installed easily. Take some time checking level and the recommended clearances and it fits great. c) You cannot easily see who is outside when looking through the door unless you turn off the inside lights off and have a bright light outside. d) I had trouble finding out if the Kwikset lockset (Model # 991LL 15 SMT CP
Store SKU # 730408) was going to fit as the door thickness was reported to be outside the range of allowable thicknesses shown in the lockset specs....but it did fit well after all. Like all 'security' devices, this is not going to keep anyone out of your home. It will slow them down a bit but it is not a "bank safe" door!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JERRY wouldn't buy one again
Frist door rusted in about 6 weeks after installation. Removed rusted Solana model # 610 security door and exchanged it for a new one at home depot. When we were installing the new one , it wouldn't close ,a big gap at top! Come to find out it was bent, what a surprise. Return to home depot with bent door for another one, they have to order one. VERY DISAPOINTED IN PRODUCT.
