Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mitch The product is a good one but is incomplete.
The product is of good construction but it needs a security strip near the center L bracket on the door nob side of the door. On both sides of the door needs security screens. The bottom L bracket needs to be pointed down on the outside of the bottom frame so it can be bolted to the concrete. The L brackets hole should be drill one inch from the end of the tab.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuckie Well worth the money.....
Best one anywhere for the price, strong and sturdy.. It's reversible meaning the door can be installed to be opened from the left or the right side (whatever side you put the deadbolt / knob set), BUT once installed it will only open on the side with the deadbolt / knob set , other side does not open... Double Cylinder Deadbolts are recommended !!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Installer not the best
The box was torn open everywhere like it was thrown around, but the item was not damaged. Once I got it home, I noticed that the steel was starting to rust though the paint especially at the joints. As a result, I had to apply touch-up paint. It was relatively easy to install, and I like the overall appearance of the door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RoyM The door is designed well
The only problem is that there is some rust showing already (have just received it late last week and not installed yet but still in shipping container until today) where the lockset metal halves come together and one blemish on a bar where it is welded. Can you send me some free touch up paint? It seems every door I order has had some cosmetic defects. The (expensive) vinyl sliding door I ordered recently (5 ft made in China) had silicone smeared on the windows and door frame. This is poor quality control for finish. It took me a lot of effort to remove it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bayarea NO metal screen included
I was very disappointed that this security door DID NOT come with a metal screen because when it was installed you could simply reach in and unlock the "security door" so we had to buy two seperate and expensive aluminum sides for the right and left side so that an intruder could not unlock the door. POORLY designed but worked after our modification.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by LiLou does the job, looks good
Much less cost than custom, but is hollow rather than solid steel. Gives the security I need for a bedroom door that I want to leave open at night for the cool breeze.
Note: Passive side does not open, both sides do not open as described. Not a problem for my application

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.
