Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Do As expected, pro install required
The security door was as expected. No screen, which I would have preferred, but I knew before buying.
Due to the length of the one way screws, and the difficult nature of "redos" I would consider professional installation a requirement. We are generally handy around the house, but that was not enough! If you want to install thru home depot they want to order it, so order directly at your own risk!

I installed two of these doors and both were pried open today, less than two weeks after installation. The doors provide no security whatsoever. The problem is that they have two pieces, the door body and then a vertical bar which has the hole for the deadbolt. It is very easy to pry this apart from the door so the deadbolt just comes out of the hole. If you have two people you can actually do it just by pulling manually. Do not waste your time and money installing these doors so that you can then have a false sense of security for the short period of time until you are broken into again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Justme very satisfied
One afternoon someone walked up to a neighbors patio door, smashed in the glass, walked in, and walked out with a new flat screen TV, leaving my neighbors to pick up the pieces. I felt way too vulnerable so immediately started looking for a way to avert that from happening to our house and came across this product! Exactly what I had in mind. I ordered and installed and am very pleased with the end result. The price of the unit is very good. However, the shipping charge was expensive (~99$) and took about two weeks. The product quality is very good with the exception of the rushed paint job. I had to use a can of white spray paint to touch up some rust spots and uneven painted areas but not a big deal. I did not use the included security screws because after 4 stores I couldn't find a driver for them and based on other reviews I just tossed them in the loose screw bucket. I used heavy duty 4 inch screws installing with silicone on the threads to enhance seal integrity (as another reviewer suggested). I then used silicon and lock-tight to deface the screw heads. Lastly, I painted the screw heads white to disguise which matches the gate. I installed a lever doorknob so I can still use the screen (clears the knob) with nice weather and feel secure, but rely on a small strand of robust chain (painted white to match) wrapped around (used clear silicone to attach the chain links in convenient position on the mounted frame) the frame near doorknob and a heavy-duty designer combination padlock to secure. This makes it secure and qwik and easy to exit/enter. The design is such that you can modify it any way you want basically, My install is solid, looks nice, and makes a statement. For the money you will not do better. I highly recommend this as an investment to your home. Now I worry less while away and the beach will feel that much better!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joying Just the right security door!
I knew I had the right security door for my patio door. It closes halfway only just like the sliding door. . The only thing I have to use two different lock sets without knob or else you cannot really close the door. It is gonna bump your sliding door. One lock set you can lock and unlock from inside and can be picked from outside to unlock. I have to get another lockset that has a keyhole so you can only lock and unlock either inside or outside with a key. I chose a deadbolt. It works perfectly. I love the most is I can lock my security door when I am at the backyard without worrying someone may enter my house thru the patio door.

I picked up the security door from my local home depot (ship to store). It came in approximately 3 weeks after placing an order). The box it came in was a little over 3 feet wide and about 7 feet long (easy to transport in a pickup bed). I am fairly handy using power tools and I had no difficulty installing the door on a cement stucco house. (Note that a hammer drill was required to drill 8 holes in the masonry). I also chose to add spacers to facilitate closing the patio door screen. To complete the installation, I purchased and installed a double cylinder dead bolt and standard door knob kit. The house is now more secure, and the door looks absolutely great.

It serves it's purpose as a visual deterent for my deck patio doors and basement walkout patio doors. I used 2 double cylinder bolt locks since someone can reach their hands between the bars instead of the single cylinder locks. I feel alot safer at night and alot more comfortable with my wife having the patio doors open during the day for the fresh air and not having to worry about someone just walking in. The keys are in a close place if we needed to get out in an emergency. I was able to install each door in about 15 minutes.

These doors have really given me peace of mind, and my cat door in the bedroom still works great.
