Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dee Ok for the money
I am a woman in my "senior years" and took a chance that I could install this door.
First of all.....the directions are the WORST ever. I read them over and over and still couldn't figure out how to adjust the size, what the black sliders were for because they were too big and finally just basically how to install the door! Which side shows inside and which side outside?? It's important but they didn't think so because there was no guidance. We are NOT all contractors!
You Tube was (and always is) a Godsend. They went over step by step. After watching it making the adjustments and installing it were quite simple.
For the money I think it was worth it. Is it GREAT quality? Well, no but then I would have to spend 2 or 3 times what I spent on this door and it seems to be adequate for me to keep the bugs out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaywashere It's a universal fit so make it work for you.
I bought the Ultimate Screen Door just because I knew I had to tweak it to fit my patio door. I didn't read any reviews but just wanted something that was low maintenance and the vinyl seemed the way to go. I watch the installation video once just to see what I was facing. I started reading the instructions and got to the point where you needed to adjust the extension screws. I didn't like the sloppy feel of the door. With the extension adjusted, the door had too much 'play' on the top extension.
I knew this would happen working with universal products so I thought about anchoring the top extension once it was in place. I thought about glue but pop rivets were the second choice. I made sure the door moved smoothly and drilled holes for the rivets and it took out all the play. drilling through the vinyl was easy and I'm impressed with the door.
I like the door because it's light weight. anyone dealing with screen doors knows how the aluminum ones corrode over time and I was looking for something light but not aluminum.
I am sitting here looking at the door and I'm very happy with the product. I definitely would recommend this to anyone that enjoys doing small projects around the house. However, they have to understand that it's a universal item and it takes some extra time to get the perfect fit for your door.
I also noticed once I used the pop rivets and removed much of the overall play, the door didn't bind when I closed and opened it with force. In other words, like when a child would slam it shut.
I'm thinking about pop riveting the bottom extension to really take out the bottom play but why mess with something that works?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Corkky $109.00 piece of junk
This door lasted about three weeks before coming apart.The material vinyl is of extremely poor quality and assembly is poor. I would give it a 0 if that were possible.

Nice screen door for the money. A few adjustments here and a few minor modifications there, as per typical, and it's a fine, sliding screen door . It's a "fits-all" unit so is undoubtedly going to have to be "fit" to your application. Don't blame the screen door. For $109 I'm happy with it.

This is the worst screen door I have ever bought, the screen material is so cheap, it pops wright out , would not recommend this screen door to anyone, that happened on the first day. Do not waste your money on this one.

This door looks ok, but it is of cheap construction. The main issue is that the expanders are so flimsy that when extended to an 80" opening they twist to the side. Also, the door itself distorts out of square when you slide it.
