Works Great but must be TWEAKED
on November 11, 2011
Here's the deal, these screens will not be a perfect fit. They are relatively large in width at 39". For our doors, it required a bit of tweaking to get them to fit. They are too long as well, that poses a problem only when going in. This is so because it drags on the carpet, thus leaving the bottom open. I simply set it higher, and folded in the excess at the top. I love tinkering with things, so the extra "effort" I had to do is well worth it. Most bad reviews are because of fit or installation issues. I don't expect As Seen on TV products to work as easy and flawless as they advertise ever, so I don't understand why people expect it to magically fit perfect.
Now, the included double sided tape does sucks. I already had heavy duty double sided mounting tape so I used that. I recommend you get some as well, or use the tacks included. Alternatively, use some staples if you have a staple gun. I used the mounting tape in more spots than it has, just to seal it better. It's all in the installation, making sure it's perfectly flat and doesn't end up misaligned. Another common complain I keep seeing is the quality of the screen. While it may be lower in quality than your typical screen material, it isn't that bad. After all, we're talking about a screen here! Of course if you poke it, or abuse it, it WILL rip. It's common sense.
Know that you'll have to "custom" fit it essentially. If you don't like the sound of that, I don't recommend you get it. If you don't mind a little work (it certainly isn't an easy installation as its portrayed in the infomercial) then this is perfect and you will love it. Get it here instead of them directly, the S&H fees from them are a ripoff.
