Easy to install. I like that it's retractable and pretty much disappears when it's not needed, and the couple of little lines on the screen that help to show that its closed so you don't walk through it. Seems sturdy. Upon arrival, there was a small piece of plastic lying in the box that looked like it had broken off from somewhere, but I can't find where it came from. All in all, great retractable screen door. I would recommend.
The instructions say 30 minute install time... AND IT WAS! This may be the best DIY product I have ever bought. It was simple to set up, it worked exactly as it was supposed to and it looks awesome! If there is one thing that could be improved is the threshold. The way it sticks up makes it a little awkward when stepping into and out of the house. Not a stopper, just a little awkward. Overall, if you need a screen door and don't want the traditional swinging door, this one is as good as I think it can get.
I have to be honest, we were nervous that this type of screen door might look cheap or cheesy compared to what you see for “standard” screen doors, but it really exceeded our expectations! It looks really nice, great value for the money and super easy to install on both of our 36” doors! Very happy with our purchase of 2 of these!
We installed this screen on the back door of our business warehouse. We just so happen to have an Apiary right behind our office, and the product that we package is a sweet smelling powder that attracts the bees. We soon discovered that on the warm, sunny days when we were able to open up the back door for some fresh air, the bees would quickly gather at our door, causing us to have to close up. Now that we have our retractable screen door installed, we can enjoy the sun and warmth without having to deal with the bees! The door was easy to install as well.
Never knew this existed, I saw one and ordered on ASAP. Installed it in my garage door entry to the house. I like to have my garage door open to flow air into the house...now with now flies getting in.
This retractable screen door is a very easy do-it-yourself project, it's as easy as just assembling the unit and securing it to the door frame with four screws. My only complaint is that the mesh on this unit is made of plastic and I would have preferred aluminum since I have a little dog that keeps scratching at it all the time she wants to go in and out of the backyard, other than that it's a great product.

Ease of installation :
This was tricky to put together as instructions were not clear. You don't know until after you buy the product that you might have to "build up" the threshold in order for the door to be flush at the bottom. Then the first strong breeze (NOT a gust or storm) that came along tore the screen out at the top and bottom of the frame. This screen door is totally useless!
