Pet D-Fence Pros:
1.) VERY tough nylon or heavy duty fiberglass material - far tougher than I thought it would be.
2.) Decent transparency. It's darker than standard charcoal fiberglass screen but it also makes it harder for people walking by to peek into my front door during the day but no so much at night
3.) Easy to install relative to aluminum screen and more tolerant of screen spline roller slips than either fiberglass or aluminum screen
4.) Simple tools required for installation - screen roller, new screen bead if required, a slot blade screwdriver, razor knife with new blade or you can farm it out to the local hardware store
5.) Adds a lot of stability and rigidity to a screen frame
6.) (NEW) This screen deflects 90% of the sunlight and heat away from my front door. See my update comments at the end of this review
None really but see the section below on "things to know".
Things to know:
1.) I saw some comments from other reviewers that this screen is too thick to install. That may happen if you have very narrow screen channels but there are techniques to try before abandoning hope. You may actually need smaller diameter screen spline.
2.) Another approach to try rather than buying new screen spline is to simply press about one inch of the existing spline in place with regular slot screw driver blade at a corner and then gently pull the spline to stretch it, reducing it's diameter and then roll it into place with a spline roller - that's what I did.
3.) I did not list the extra thickness as a "con" because D-Fence screen is made to be tougher/thicker.
4.) Be aware that when stretching the screen spline it is important to use a very stable work table. Having a second set of hands and strong forearms also helps with installation. I did mine solo and it came out nearly perfect with patience
5.) The D-Fence product does darkens the look of the screen and some of the outward visibility even in daylight because the mesh is thicker. It's fine with me because I want protection for my cat and I think the darker color looks fine but you might not agree.
6.) I used a few small wood shop style 2" spring clips with a wooden ruler to hold the screen in place so I would not scratch the screen frame when setting the bead. Other options are using medium sized metal binder clips used in offices for large stacks of paper or having a second person simply maintain pressure by gently pulling the screen tight.

In summary, I really like this product, ordered two more rolls from Amazon.. I have NOT accepted ANY discount or free product for my review.
5/30/16 update - The screen easily withstood a mauling from a large neighborhood cat two nights ago. Not a mark on it after the other 15 pound cat climbed half way up the screen. One other interesting side note. My home faces east and my main entry door gets REALLY hot in the morning sun with a standard screen in place. With the pet d-fence screen in place, the door never gets above about 100 degrees - the heavier mesh reflects all the heat. That latter fact alone is enough to get me to buy this product.
7/16/16 update - I used Pet-Defence screen on a rear house screen after an local cat clawed my original Marvin fiberglass screen up trying to get into a fight with my indoor cat. Last night the same outdoor cat launched another attack at my cat who was sitting in the window with the Pet-Defense screen. The other cat bounced off the heavy duty pet screen. I was sitting on the sofa 5 feet away and it was loud and pretty funny. No damage to the new Pet-Defence screen but the other cat has to be scratching it's head wondering what happened. I bought a new, larger screen roller and I "pre-roll" the Pet-Defence into the screen notch with the convex side and then add the spline pressing it into place with the concave side of the roller. Great screen for defusing cat fights!
Soon after installation I heard the familiar sound of claws testing out the new screen door. Despite even finding one cat 6 feet off the ground climbing up the screen, there was not a hint of damage to the screen material! Its has also held in the sliding door frame very well, even with the weight of the cat suspended on it. No bulges or sags!
The screen takes some elbow grease to install- definitely invest a few bucks in a metal roller- but I think it is easier to get a clean and taught install with this screen than with the standard stuff, maybe because it is thicker and doesn't get stretched out of shape as easily. I found rolling the screen into the groove with the round edge of the roller first, then using short quick strokes to push in the spline with the concave side made the installation go the fastest.
I used a 0.135 dia spline (it was oddly hard to search for that size on here but the model number ended up being Prime-Line Products P 7631) which worked perfectly. It was a tight fit but not impossible and seems to hold the screen in nice and strong. As near as I can measure the original spline in my door was .140 inch dia., so I used one just the tiniest bit smaller for the new material.
Its definitely a darker, more visible screen than the standard ones, but the peace of mind is worth it and then some. Plus it actually looks nice when the screen is clean and straight, not all bulging out and full of holes and rips like so many screens I have had in the past.
I have had it installed for over 4 months now and there are still no rips or tears anywhere and I have not had to adjust anything despite cats climbing, scratching at it, and bouncing off of it while chasing their toys. The fact that this stuff is only a few dollars more expensive than the standard fiberglass screen is astonishing, I think it is worth many times the price!
