Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Norm Poor design, not recommended
I installed this door for a neighbor and it took nearly two days screwing around with the door to make it work. It was too narrow for a 36" wide opening although that is what it was designed for. Had to use a wood filler on the hinge side and mortise the hinges. Instructions were extremely poor. Threaded adjustment screws were fine thread and cross threaded when trying to make the width adjustment. All in all, this is not a door for a DYI installation. I am a general contractor and not a novice. The design may look good on paper but in actuality, the engineering design couldn't have been fully tested. Do not recommend the door at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by GJones Very hard to install
Took me 4 hours to install this thing due to failure of the adjustable width "feature."
The screws on the adjuster froze; best to simply remove the nuts from the adjuster.
The handle was very difficult to install which turned out to be because the machine screws screw into the handle but the handles has no machine screw threads so you have to "create" your own before installation by forcing the machine screws into the handle which could be very difficult for many without the patience or hand strength.
As someone else mentioned, if you aren't reasonably handy, (in my case I had to use a wedge to cut out part of the jam), forget this door.

This door is an example of "you get what you pay for". It is undersized - 35 1/2 x 79 - leaving you with gaps at the side and top. The door handle mechanism is plastic and bent when we tried to install. We had to take the handle off our old screen door. The closer mechanism didn't work either so again we had to remove the one from the old screen door.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0Â by Sportsbutt DO NOT BUY!!!
I bought two of these doors thinking they would be easy to install based on the Ad on the wrapper. I've installed several screen doors in the past, so no problem right? WRONG!!! These doors are HORRIBLE!!! After following the directions very closely, the door still didn't fit right and even sagged because the so-called "Quick Adjustment" screw was too far out. I didn't even bother with the second door and just took them both back to HD for a full refund!! WARNING, don't buy this product!!!

Purchased the 32" version of this door to fit my 32" opening. Door was not wide enough. Had to order a "trim kit" from the manufacturer to make it fit. Trim kit was two pieces of 3/4" x 1" pvc and eight finish nails. The adjustment screws to make the door wider are the only two screws that hold it together. Mine broke within two weeks. Closer and handle that come with the door are junk as well. Had to buy better ones at additional cost. This door is junk and I would not recommend it to anyone. Took mine back and will look for a better quality door elsewhere.
