    Q:How hard to install and what tools will a weekend handyman need.
    by|Mar 4, 2020

    Answer This Question

    A:  Not too hard - if you are somewhat handy. You should install next to a stud or ceiling joist on the hinge side and will probably need to attach a block or two on the opposite side. Although strong sheet rock fasteners may be enough to hold the none hinge side. You should have some basic tools - saw, hammer, screw driver, tape measure; a stud finder and level would also be helpful.

      A:  Hello the wall opening would be 17 5/8 x 17 5/8. There are holes on all 4 corners where you can have them screwed onto wall once mounted.

                Perfect Solution To Problem
                Ordered as access door to plumbing within walls that was previously accessed by cutting sheetrock leaving ugly hole. Could have repaired sheetrock but this allows access in the event plumbing issues occur in future. The doors are heavy to hold up if you are installing by yourself. Did not come with any directions but self explanatory. Note: Does not come with hardware for installation. Shipping was very efficient and received in timely manner.

                Make sure the door is manufactured properly before installing
                The metal was not manufactored right and didnt lay flat to the door... does the job for now, but ill likely just drywall patch the spot in the fall. Very disappointed.

                  The product is robust but sags a somewhat in the middle from the weight.
