Removable, walk-thru patio-door bug screen allows fresh air in, but not the bugs.
Wish you had a door screen but can't bear the expense? This affordable instant screen door installs easily without tools. Made of flexible fiberglass mesh, the bug screen attaches near the top of your door frame with an easy-up tension rod.

Benefits of the Instant Screen Door:
This door does a perfect job of fitting in the doorway to my deck and a good job of closing after people walk in and out. I wish it had another magnet near the top to help it shut, but a minor issue. I'm thinking of getting another for my other outer door. It's really great and clever.
our dogs kept scratching and making holes in our screen door and when they finally walked through it I started to look for something different. I saw this in the sky mall magazine and desided to give it a try. Its great it keeps 95% of the bugs out and the dogs love there new freedom of walking onto the deck when they please.
Good fix for patio door. We have had a hard time finding a replacement screen door for our sliding glass patio door. It is an odd size so the fact that this product fits many different size doors is a big plus. Works well and the slide through screen without having to pull or push a door open is great.
We live in a condo and did not want a permanent screen door which we had to get approvals. This was the perfect solution; easy to set up and take down in the winter. We now can leave the door open and enjoy the nice breeze. The quality is sturdy; works very well for our purpose. We saw the ad on a flight to FL; had never seen anything like it!
Simple to install and GREAT for pets to let themselves in and out, while stopping the flying bugs you don't want in. Lets the cool night area in to cool down the house. Highly recommended.
i am renting and have 2 doors that lead to my decks, having screen doors installed wasn't easy. this product gave the use of the night breeze with in a few minutes and no bugs,even the dogs and cats like it. when i move it comes down just as fast
We have three dogs that go in and out of the house through this screen door. it has really cut down on the bugs we would get, if we left the door open. However, dog are not as carefull as humans an the screen has fallen down server times from the dogs jumping on it.
This product is exactly what I expected. It is an inexpensive screen that can keep bugs out. I want to put the screeen up when I keep the door open but if the door is not open I will take the screen down.
The one con is that in the picture it shows a lady walking through the screen like it is not there and it will automatically close, Not!. You have to separate the magnets and walk through gently. It is, what it says it is. It is very durable and a quality product. If you want a temporary screen door. It is not a replacement for a more expensive permanant screen door.
This screen door is exactly what I was looking for...the winning feature is the tension rod. It fits great and does the job perfectly. Very good quality product.
This is a very simple solution for those who have pets and want to let them come and go either through a doggy door or through an open door with the instant screen. Pets can navigate the instant screen and if hung correctly, flies and mosquitoes are still kept out.
This is a huge benefit where I live, as I have several dogs and like to keep the doors open to let a breeze in. The instant screen allows us to have the breeze, gives the dogs access to the backyard and keeps the flying insects out.
I love this concept. It took minutes to put up. We have it on our patio door. When the kids are in the backyard I can hear them, and it's great to have to entertain company too, and best of all, no insects are getting in because the door is left open!
It was really easy to install the iten no tools needed, love it.
Great product... We have dogs that like to come in and out while we are home. This was a better choice than installing a dog door. We have also noticed fewer insects in the house this year vs last season.
This is a great product. We have a screened in patio, but we have dogs, and they have a dog door to the patio, so we have to leave our door open. This product was the perfect solution for us, it acts as a curtain, keeps the bugs off and it was really easy to install. And if we decide to remove for some reason it's also easily done. Great product for the money too :)
we just got a new puppy so we have to leave the door crack and bugs would get in . So it has been so great having this and it was so easy to install.....
The instant screen door is awesome. We have 2 dogs that learned in only moments how to go in and out. It keeps the bugs out so we can leave our patio doors open in the evening without the mosquitos.
It is very easy to install or take back down and is made of sturdy material.
It has accomplished everything that I intended it for.
Ease of use make this one of the best products I have ever purchased. Great if you have pets that roam in and out. keep the insects out. A must to have item for parties.
This is a good product for our area (Texas) as it is something that can be used in the cooler months and does not require a lot of installation. No bugs, but fresh air, and now that fall is arriving, that's great!
Probably could be a little longer to fit best, but over all is a great product.
This screen door works great for pets they learned to use it right away. Could use more Velcro but it is easy to add more.
This is so worth buying. I have 4 dogs, yes four! This is the best idea as I no longer feel like a slave to my dogs with the in-and-out bit. The flies stay out, which is one of the reasons I bought this.
My dogs have busted through two expensive screens, so this thus far has been a blessing.
This opened my house right up. I have such air coming in now.
This is a great alternative to an actual screen door. It has good door coverage; however, going through it is not as simple as described. You also have to bend down to get it closed up properly. But, it works great for leaving the doors open.
Liked the screen. Fits the door well and keeps the insects out while allowing the breeze to come in. Doesn't block the view either. Would recommend it over any door screen on a hinge.
I was a little skeptical when we ordered this item, but once we installed the tension rod out on the doorway to our deck, we noticed how well it covered the opening. The unit has two sections which attach to one another by a magnetic catch. There are velcro attachments on either extremity of the screening, but we elected to ignore them for the time being. Our little dog at first saw the screen as an impassible obstacle, but once we taught her (with a few treats) how to simply stick her nose under one flap and pass through, entry/exit not a problem.
I've always had a problem getting framed screen doors to fit and roll properly. This is an ingenius idea..altho pretty pricey for what it really is (I wish I'd thought of it). On the other hand after spending on average about $80-$90 on ea of the last 3 screen doors this was a bargain! I highly recommend it. I gave it 3 stars only because of the price. It won't keep animals from coming in the house, you might want to keep that in mind.
This screen went up in 2 minutes, literally. Perfect for the dogs to enter and exit the house without letting bugs in, too. I thought the shipping price for the weight was a little extravagant, but that has nothing to do with the product itself.
Very ingenious idea. Easy to install, our dog goes in and out and I don't worry about the bugs coming in. Very nice product.
Our apartment is on the third floor, and we have French doors that open to a railing. No screens in the doors, and we have a cat that needs to stay in the house. The screen worked perfectly! Easy setup and removal, and buy a roll of Velcro, and you can move it around to any door at will. We love it!
works perfect and good service
I bought this to try it out since my new house did not come with screen doors. I spend a lot of time outside on the porch and go in and out often. Leaving a door open was not an option until I saw this product. It works well and I am going to purchase another for my other porch door.
I just had new french doors installed and these are an awesome alternative to a permanent screen door. Living in AZ there is a short window of time when a screen door is preferable over AC so being able to put these up and take them down is perfect. A snap to "install" and "uninstall"
We bought this to help cut down on the bugs in the summer
as we like to keep our french doors open. So far it is doing an excellent job an the install was so easy.
This door screen is really awesome. It keeps the bugs out and lets you move in and out with ease. We love it for entertaining and keeping an eye on the kids when they're playing outside.
works well, only can't access door locks if that side is velcroed at the bottom, so just leave loos. keeps bugs out
screen stability needs improvement parallel rods where the screen closes, and a larger magneted clasp in the middle and bottom would help to make it easier to open and close.
This product is great if your dogs love free access between indoors and out. It went up easily too. There was about a 5 minute learning curve for our dogs to figure it out, but now that they have we spend much less time letting them in and out of the house.
This screen is much better than the one it replaced. The screen stays closed because of the magnets in the center and at the bottom; it fastens nicely at the sides and hangs neatly. My dog is still getting accustomed to pushing it open in the middle rather than on the sides.
I'm very happy with this product.
We have a door off our garage and a front door. We do not have a storm/screen door with these. We wanted to get some cross breeze from the door area through our windows on the back side of the house without adding the second door. We were able to use the Instant Screen door to accomplish this cross breeze. It is very easy to use. It is easy to move the instant door from the garage door to the front door, or remove it all together when not needed.
I put this up on the front entry to my business and people love it. Easy to install, attractive and keeps the bugs out.
This is a great product easy to install,we just love it.
We're very happy with the instant door screen; it lets us and our cats through without letting in the flies! Very sturdy construction and easy to put up and take down.
Installed in minutes with no hardware needed.
I had been trying other retractable screen solutions but my doorway wouldn't accept the products without taking out the threashold of the doorway. Your product took me all of 5 minutes to fit! It works like a dream! I am about to buy another one for my daughter's home.
My mother has 2 of these doors and I recently purchased one for myself. It is extremely simple to install (my son did it). The screen works wonderful! It is so easy to go in and out - even with your hands full. I highly recommend this door screen!
This door is ok for the money but the little double sided tape they sent to keep it anchored to the side of the doors didnt last after the first heavy rain
I am very pleased with the instant door screen. A perfect fit and it keeps out the bugs as my 20 month old runs in and out. Worth every penny.
I have three pre-schoolers who kept leaving the door open...now, they must go through the door screen. I recommend it; however, we had to install it in such a way that they would come in using the right hand side instead of the middle magnets. But it still works great. It's better than no screen at all. Easy to install, but make sure you know where you want your velcro sticks to go...because if you decide to change them, the paint will peel off your door frame. Good product for the price.
We have five dogs and grew so tired of opening and closing the deck door a million times a day to let them in or out. It never failed - when the dogs wanted in or out, the door was shut, but when the door was open, everyone wanted to stay inside! Now we can let the dogs come and go without having to constantly open and shut the door for them and not worry about bugs! Yay!
My doorway is an odd shape and could not fit a screen door, so this door screen was perfect. It installed in minutes and looks very professional. The auto close magnets in the center work every time. You don't even need your hands to open and close this door.
I've purchased screening for my patio door, tried 2 replace & repair, but either don't add up 2 the easy & convient Instant door screen!
Easy to install....without even looking at the instructions, (and me a blonde and a woman). It keeps bugs out and lets the cool air in.
It's already cut my air conditioner usage.
I've had lots of comments and my neighbor has already ordered one for their condo.
Excellent item keeps bugs out and lets you in
Great idea and pretty well executed. It installed fairly easily except that the sick on velcro tabs don't fit well into the sliding glass door frame. We use this instead of a doggy door and are quite please though we have had to reinstall it a couple of times as it tends to slip down over time.
This is my second time purchasing this item. The first one got ruined when I forgot to remove it from my terrace doorway before the restoration work began. I just love it. It's very easy to install, fits perfectly and looks great. Lets the breeze in but keeps the insects out.
This was very easy to put up. I thought it would have been bigger but it still works fine. My dogs can now go in and out freely without all the flies coming in.
I was thrilled when my Instant Door Screen arrived in the mail only to find that my door is too tall for this model. I am hoping they make a screen for a 10 foot door ! My neighbors have this screen and it was so convenient in visiting with them during our hot weather to be able to keep the front door open and enjoy a breeze without bugs !
The screen was easy to set up, but very makeshift looking once it's installed. There's a big overlap running down the center of the screen which spoils the view of my yard. I plan to return it.
I love the Instant Screens - I've purchased several of them and have referred them to my friends too. We all love them!! I have them for our door walls and the front door!
the tension rod works great and having two sleeves to adjust the height is very helpful. Curtain hangs straight and flat.
Could use a bit more magnet at the bottom and provide some type of easement for using a key to lock and unlock the door the screen is covering.
OVER ALL it is a winner
I love this new screen! For the price and ease of installation, it is wonderful. My dog even loves it. It needs a few more velcro on the sides, but otherwise it's great!
Works extremely well. Got it so we don't have to constantly open the door for our dog to go out in the yard. Took a little bit of training to convince her she could walk through. After that everything everything works perfect
I have used the traditional screen doors and had to replace them over and over again. This is a very affordable screen that is easy to walk through and it is great for our pets.
It works great. I put it up with no tools in about 5-10 minutes.
The Instant Door Screen is easy to install and very functional. It provides full coverage of the doorway and the velcro fasteners along each edge, at top and bottom fit securely to stop bugs from squeezing through the sides. I did have to re-apply a stronger glue to secure the velcro, but this was only because my new puppy ripped the initial ones off. Lesson learned.
This screen works perfectly on the door to our backyard. We have a 2 year old and she loves to leave the door open, so now with the screen, we won't have flies coming into the house all the time, and she can walk through it with ease. Everyone commented on it at our last bbq. Great purchase for the price and easy to install.
This product seems to work very wel. It provides screening without nailing in the door frame.
I purchased this product because I have 2 six year olds and 2 cats that go in and out all the time. I got tired of replacing screens that my kids knocked out. A friend had one in her house off of their mudroom and I thought it was a great idea!
Super easy to install, looks good and is highly functional.
I live in an apartment and this as ideal for my patio door to allow for good air flow while keeping the bugs out.
Not the best looking thing but functional and sturdy. Could use more velcro side closures but otherwise a good buy for the price. Screen is very strong. Dog and kids let themselves in and out and dont have to worrry about screen tearing. Would recommend to buy if looking for something to keep bugs out and let fresh air in.
100% satisfied. Screen door works brilliantly.
I bought this screen to use on the back door of my vacation mobile home as I wanted to leave the door open during the times the air conditioner is not in use. Found it to be just the answer - lets in the air and light and the provides a view of my backyard. Exit and entry is also very convenient.
This is a great screen to have as a temporary solution. Good quality, cumbersome at time when getting in and out with your hands full. It is practical and economical.
This is a great product and perfect for apartment living or condos with hoa policies that prevent a permanent screen. the only issue we have is there are not enough side magnets so i worry that our cats may get out, but i don't think they would. dogs may be able to go through this as they are stronger but again don't think so. the screen is a great deterent (spelling?). there aren't many bugs at this time of year but i feel they would be blocked well from coming in.
Just moved and the sliding door did not come with a screen. Since we are on the 13th floor without a terrace, jsut alider, a simple solution was needed This met the criteria.
Great to have with dogs, they can go in & out
Product is very easy to install and functional. Will definitely use on other exterior doors.
The screen was very easy to installed and simple for our dogs to use to get in and out. This is the 2nd screen we've bought. The first lasted 2 years prior to tearing
My daughter plays outside in our backyard alot and I like leaving the door open so I can hear her PLUS she is constantly going in and out and could not use the previous screens I had ordered in the past. I had previously tried the screen on tracks and the retractable ones. both were hard to work. The one on tracks was constantly being knocked out and the retractable ones were ripping at the bottom. This is a fabulous investment for people with small children and pets.
we love the walkthru door screen.it was so easy to put up to the door
The idea of the screen is great but it is not that easy to put up and down and is not quite as long as it says it is I bought additional screen and sewed it to the bottom. If you are sure it will fit your door and you won't be taking it up and down a lot it is a good product.
I love it. My instant screen door was received sooner than promised and it was in great shape. Easy to install and fit my door perfectly. Much less expensive than a new screen door.
great product.only problem it does not close tight
Love this screen door!!
Now we can enjoy the weather and not have to put up with the bugs in the house.
The dogs have figured out how to go in and out too, which is a huge help. I think that is one of the great features of this. No more getting up to let the dogs in and out, wonderful.
Took just a few moments to install this door and we love it.
This is the second instant door screen that we have purchased. The first instant door screen lasted many years. It works extremely well when your hands are full and just as great for our dog to enter and leave the home.
I installed the screen door at my commercial kitchen's back door. The door is used many times everyday. It is so much easier to use and more effective than the old sliding screen door, used in the past. Especially useful when carrying a load in and out the door. Can be easily taken down and reinstalled for large deliveries.
Product went on OK but lack good step by step instructions on how to install correctly. Gaps on both sides & bottom don't fit correctly (not tight) to ensure no bugs would not come in. Because of sloppy fit the middle doesn't close complete. Would not recommend.
In order to have a burglar proof iron door at my condo, the screen for the sliding glass door had to be removed. According to the screen people, it could not be used with the burglar door. After a few years I ran across this item and finally bought it. What took so long? This is the real deal and I regret having not bought it sooner. Works as advertised and fits perfectly. Installing was a breeze too. Get it!
I purchased this product to enable our dog to go in and out of the patio sliding glass door all day. Great idea. It is sturdy, and made of high quality material. My dog goes in and out all day long and the screen shuts itself automatically. I love my new purchase.
This screen is great! Nothing fancy but definitely serves the purpose; my two big dogs have figured out how to get in and out without damaging the screen. It's very sturdy. I would recommend this product.
Installs easily, Effective
This instant screen door is perfect for the door between my deck and kitchen. Now no more flying insects following me back in the house. I love the fact that I could put it up in just moments and I can remove it that quickly also. What a great idea!
Dogs and small children learn to use this hanging screen with just one try. It goes up and down easily, so we were able to move in a new large piece of furniture with no problem, then pop it right back up. Very much needed during the summer months, comes down in October through April. Love it!
I purchased this screen for a double outswing french patio door. It installed easily and works just as shown in the Skymall ad. Our small grandchildren have no problem pushing through the screen, even our dog has used it. An excellent product and a much less expensive solution for an outswing door.
The screen is easy to install. This screen works in applications where a standard screen door won't. There are some gaps at both the top and bottom which allow some insects in.
No muss, no fuss. It setup easy and works well to keep the bugs out.
This is the second door screen I bought. They are great for a door that you don't want a permanent screen door. We wanted the summer breeze at our vacation home without installing a permanent screen door which would be a hassle in the winter time. Our dogs can go in and out on their own. It's a perfect summertime solution.
I was getting tons of bugs in my house when I would let the dog outside- and because the weather is nice she wanted out all the time. I was in search of a screen door she could access and this is perfect! She can come and go as she pleases and no more bugs! Super easy to intsall and works like a charm. Highly recommend it for pet owners.
Easy to install. The magnets aren't mentioned, but they really help it stay closed.
I was so happy to see the instant door screen when I was flying home in your magazine. I was having a couple of lovable guests staying with me soon and I was trying to think of how I could keep them comfortable. My sisters dogs a german shepard and a beagle were staying with me and needed to be able to come and go during the day from our side patio into our garage. This was the perfect purchase for me and the price was also very reasonable. The two tail waggers were very happy and so were we.
the screen was easy to install & is not a problem to walk through. It keeps the bugs out and I can remove it when the door is closed.
I do love this screen, in fact I had my parents order one first - to help with the "in and out" of the toddler through the patio doors. Huge success.
So when I moved into a new place, I had a similar issue - just involving my lab mix dog. It works very well, he can come in and out and no bugs come in. The only downside is that the magnets are too low. He is a 100 lb dog and stands fairly tall, so it is causing extra strain on one of the velcrow pieces. I will reinforce it and should work great.
Kept me from trying to figure out how to install a doggie door, especially difficult since the current door is a french type (i.e. lots of windows) AND the house is a rental.
Very happy with it.
We had a french door put in and overlooked that the door we ordered does not come with a screen door. This screen has been the perfect inexpensive solution. A snap to put up and use.
Along the top there is a gap but we don't have a major flying bug issue, so its not a problem for us. If you have agressive bugs this might be an issue.
I love it!! Easy to assemble and disassemble. I can even move it to one door in one room to another room/door. I am ready to buy a second!
At our condominium location we're not allowed to affix permanent screen doors so we are virtually without air circulation throughout our home. This has been great because we have good flow and none of the permanent trappings. Easy on easy off.
I found a portable screen door that I had been looking on the internet for some time Found it on SKy Mall, Ordered got it in 3 days and Love it
Nce... Sometimes doesn't close completely, but overall really very functional.
I have had several screen doors- temporary like this, retractable, as well as standard. My door frame here is a custom size and since its on the back of the house I was looking for function- not necessarily appearance. I saw this at a friends recently and she had nothing but great things to say so I ordered one as the cost was reasonable. The quality seems high and I am very happy I bought it.
I like the instant screen. It was very easy to install and it really works. My only suggestion to you is that you measure your door frame very well. I measure only the width and I ordered the wrong size, the screen was a bit short in length.
This was a great idea and perfect for my needs. Easy, easy to install and I absolutely love the product. Would highly recommend it.
We are very pleased with our purchase. I had some reservations about how tightly it would fit around our french doors and it worked beautifully. It is very substantial without being as intrusive as a traditional screen door
Great Purchase!!!! Great price for the money, compared to a regular screen door
Perfect fit...wonderful for our dogs to use also...
Perfect fit, easy to put up, strong and durable! We reinforced with double-backed tape along sides and clips down center, as wind here blows hard sometimes and makes screen bow open---no problem. So glad to have found this product--perfect for our needs!
We installed the screen off our deck @ our summer house in Michigan. It was easy to install. Very simple to use. We have over 20 people @ the lake every weekend. Using the screen instead of the door saves the door while keeping the bugs out.
so easy to assemble and hang, keeps bugs out, easy to let kids, pets etc out and in w/o opening screen door
how many of us have a broken and ripped screen door, that we keep meaning to replace? expensive and tedious process
I have sent these to at least 10 people so far
I am a renter and love fresh air. Since I don't want to spend alot of money on someone else's property, this was the next best thing for me to do so I can leave my door open!
I bought a different one from another company last yr. I went to a friends house last summer and saw the one she had where the screen opens in the middle and it closes and locks it together by it's self with the magnets. It's perfect and the price is right. Sure beats having to install others with hardware.
LOOK MA! NO HANDS!
A quality product, good service, and fast delivery, but the size is wrong for my 6' french door. The screen is a little wide and a little long, so the dogs step on it and dislodge it every time. I'm going to try a smaller size as an insert for just one side of the door. A great solution for those with dogs if you can get the right fit. I'm hoping SkyMall will be willling to work with me on this replacement.
This screen was easy to install and it does work. We have a French door that has lovely mountain views so we didn't want to install a permanent screen that might obstruct the view and yet we like to have the door open so the screen was the answer.
We have a large deck and when friends are here we had to leave the door open much of the time--with the screen it has been much nicer since it reduced fly entry to the house tremendously.
We live near a canyon so we get heavy winds at times and our concern was wether the screen would stay in place with our strong winds--I have to clamp down deck furniture--so far, the screen has handled all of the winds--we have had it up for about a month now.
I have 7 children and 19 grandchildren. We put up the backdoor split screen for our Father's Day get -together at our home in Vancouver, WA. My children laughed at me at first but after a swing door/slamming door reprieve weekend due to installation of the Split screen, they gave me kudos for setting this up on our back door. No smashed fingers nor bumped heads. It is a blessing for all families who run in and out for family activities.
This screen is the best if you have animals or small children. It allows them to go in & out whenever they want & you don't have to worry about bugs getting in. We love it!
The instant door screen was better than I anticipated. The adjustable hanging rod fits snug and the Velcro tabs on the sides make sure that the screen remains in place. It is easy to maneuver in and out of the house through the door and it closes behind you. Great product
Living in a apartment enviroment and couldn't aford to attached a permeant fixture to something that I don't own; The 36"Instant Door Screen has been the ideal solution to protect against most flying insects up to 90%. If used accordingly, you'll agree to; it's the best quick fix for a stickey situation. Robert G.
Keeps the bugs out and it's easy to walk through. I put it up in less than 5 minutes. It too my cat awhile to figure out how to work it but she's on board with it now too. It saved the summer (or at least it saved me from some mosquito bites in my living room)
Cheap fix - reasonable price. Wish there were a better patio door solution for very large dogs!
This was easy to install and fits the door well.
I needed a screen door, but did not want to pay to have one installed. The Instant Door Screen was installed in about 5 minutes. I do not have it "attached" on the sides, so I can remove it when winter comes. Even with the gaps, it is keeping the bugs out, doing what I intended.
Door Screen was just what I needed. I ordered one for each of my patio deck doors. Very simple installation. I had been looking for something and I found it in the SkyMall.
I have purchased several removable screen door, but so far this is the best of them all. It is held in place and does not flap open with just a breeze of wind. Will surely recommend to family and friends.
What a brilliant invention, and a great purchase. I put the screen in an otherwise open doorway on my screened porch, and it is 100 percent effective in keeping all the bugs out. As a disabled person, It was super easy to pop into place, and I love how it closes right back up when someone passes through it. That includes my son comng in with armfuls of groceries, and even my dog! Thank you for creating and selling this wonderful, affordable, simple to install alternative to a door!
I bought this product to prevent my dog from destroying my sliding door. I t works wonders she is a German Sheppard and she loves it because she can go out whenever she needs to and also to enjoy the weather when she wants to be outside.
Very reasonable price. Easy to install. It works well. Now I can have my patio door open to let the fresh air comes in.
The main part in this door is the tension rod. I purchased two of these "Walk-Thru" Patio-Door Screens and neither tension rod held any pressure - not even close. I'm in the process of returning them for two more doors and rod and hope the next sets actually function.
This is my second Instant Screen Door - my first lasted over 6 years. I love this product and highly recommend to anyone who has dogs. I have 2 Weimaraners and they love the freedom (as well as me). I do not constantly have to open/close the screen door to let them in/out. No more scratches on the door, broken screen doors or nose/paw marks on the window!
It also allows me to freely move between the house and deck w/out having to open/close the door. LOVE IT!
My kitties like to go outside, but as soon as I shut the door, they want back in. Leaving the door open lets all the bugs in. Then I saw this product in the SkyMall catalog and had to try it. Inexpensive, easy to install, works like a charm!
We live in the Colorado mountains and usually do not have many bugs so we thought we did not need a screen door. My husband was skeptical at first. But after I ordered and installed this screen myself in minutes and we can take it down in seconds, roll it up and put in the closet for next summer. My husband loves it now too!
Great product! Don't have to worry about the dogs or children breaking the screen door.
Walk-Thru screen is easy to assemble, light weight, flexible, and can easily be removed. I didn't want a permanent screen door so this was a great solution.
Walk-Thru screen door keeps bugs outs and the magnets draw the screen together to close,
Even my dogs and cats have taken to pushing it open to walk through.
Very handy for kids and dogs. Many compliments about this screen.
Great screen. Does it's job and super easy to install.
Very good product and it works GREAT.... We have French doors that open out and this instant screen door does the job. And actually my mother in-law who is the biggest critic of stuff like this really loves it...and would buy one for herself. just that coment alone would make me buy one, coming out of her mouth. I give this product 5 stars. One other thing when its up it looks like it is part of the door, DOESN'T LOOK CHEAP...
This is just what I needed. I wanted the ventilation of leaving a door open without the bugs. This is so easy to instal and use.
I love this screen door. I leave the sliding glass door open for my dog to get in and out but then I had birds coming in and nesting. No more birds and my dog can still come and go as she likes.
this screen is sooo awesome. we rent so it is a perfect solution for our door to deck no screen delima. we now have the ability to sleep with our patio door open.
awesome! absolutely would recommend to friends.
The lower magnet did not work and the glue holding the velcro pads was not strong enough to keep it from coming away from the door frame when passing through the screen
works just like advertised, I couldn't find a 96" length screen, this was the only place that had them that long
interesting concept. A few flaws in execution. We shall see if it holds up to our notorious bug season!
Poor quality for a lot of money. Cheaply made and would never hold up or perform under daily use.
A very good solution for a French door that opens out instead of in.
If you have no interest in installing a screen door that requires tools, hinges, etc, then this is the screen door for you. I was able to install it in about five minutes. The magnet and velcro fasteners are quite strong... If you want a quick and easy screen door, BUY THIS!
Love that the dog can go in and out with out assistance - Love that you don't hear the door open and close everytime the kids go in and out. Very easy to install.
Easy to install. Convienient. Reasonable cost
This was our second purchase of this product; the first lasted about 6 years and then had a small tear at the bottom where our dog goes in and out. Easy to install; seems to work fine as far as keeping the bugs out. The Velcro does not come off very easily; I will have to repaint the door frame when we stop using this. Other than that, it's good!
This screen is as easy to install as manufacturers state. It is equally as easy to use and cuts down on the bugs dramatically during the day. The mesh isn't taught at the center seam nor do the magnets always come together. They do about 75-80 % of the time, so not bad, it's great for our dogs and for parties but not a surefire answer - nor should it be used at night with a light on inside.
So glad I found this on Sky Mall. It's the only place that has the 96" length. Easy to put up and love the fresh air and no bugs. Pets love it too. I've recommended it to several friends and relatives. My dad's sliding screen for instance drags and is a pain to use; a couple of my friends plan on purchasing one for their recreational vehicles. I am planning on getting one for my RV and my bedroom door too. Thanks Sky Mall. Again I love the screen.
Have been looking for this item for awhile. Love it !!
While this product is available for standard doors everywhere, it was only on SkyMall that I could find the oversized screen. It installs almost instantly, and does just what is advertised. The appearance and ease of use and instalation make this a great product, especially on those doors you just don't want to put a full screen door. It wqs the perfect solution for the second floor balcony door in our townhome. I can recommend this product highly.
I bought this item last year for my upper doors
to the balcony( 2 ) ; i love it so nuch.This time I ordered 3 more for all my doors.
Disappointing. In a breeze the bottom flys open and anything can get in. Also, it is rather cheap looking from sidewalk view.
I enjoyed this product at my former home which had a back doorway. It worked wonderfully! I tried to improvise and purchase for my sliding glass door in my new house by trying to match the size of the opening. However, the slight give in the movement of the sliding door resulted in the screen falling down a couple of times. I could have probably tried harder to keep it I place but I did not.
Its well made, I am satisfied, but wished more sizes would be available so I could buy them
Very pleasantly surprised with this product. It actually works and was easy to install. Now I can leave my door open during nice weather days. Would highly recommend it to anyone who has french doors or a regular door with no screen. Pet frendly.
Purchased this screen to use during the nice weeks in Spring and Fall to keep Mosquitos and other bugs out here in Louisville, KY. Installs easily in minutes and works perfectly. My 2 young boys can come in and out while playing, and it allows me to hear them while I'm cooking dinner.
this is great I can have my door open and the breeze comes right thru no bugs and my dog loves it. I looked forever before I found this one. It is of good quality and very easy to install.
our 2nd door screens and it's the best, it works, looks great, our friends always compliment the clean appliance.
I currently have 3 of these screens on Townhouse porch French doors- they are an incredible solution to a vexing issue of screening these areas in. After 5 years of heavy use i finally had to replace one do to small tears in the screen. Well worth the money. Newer version has a rust-proof extendable rod, bigger magnets.
Works perfectly, easaily installed with easy entry and exit.
This is the 2nd screen I have purchased and they are easy to install, very durable and incredibly convenient.
The screens went up in 2 minutes. The dogs enjoy walking through the screens to the yard and I appreciate how it keeps the bugs out of my house. Thanks!
Nice construction, seems durable for a fair price.
This is my second Instant Screen Door. They work so well for me because I have pets that come in and out all the time. All they have to do is learn to push through it. It's also great with my very young grandchildren. No pinched fingers in a slamming screen door.
Very good product. Excellent quality
Works great and the pups love it!
I think the screen is very good....although it does seem like the magnets are maybe too strong and wont separate sometimes when you walk into the screen...you really have to force it open sometimes. But overall....very nice quality and very sturdy. I am happy with it
Simple to install. My dog figured it out faster than some people. He blasts through it and it quietly closes behind him. Bugs stay out and fresh air comes in!
This screen is good quality and very easy to install. It is easy for pets to open and closes well to keep out insects and birds. Good product!
We got this door for our kitchen door that opens to our back patio and we love it! It was easy to install and our small dog has figured out how to go in and out with it on. Our patio door to our deck had no screen and we love that we can leave it open now to let the fresh air and outside sounds in without worrying about flies and mosquitoes getting into the house! It was a great price and does exactly what we were hoping for. So far so good!
Just bought our 2nd one. We lost the first one when we backed it away for the summer so this year we deicded to get the same one since we liked it so much.
Great product - worked just as described. Purchased for our French doors leading to our patio that we leave open during nice weather. The product fit perfectly and goes up and comes down with ease. I recommend leaving it up for a couple days when it's first set up to let the wrinkles come out due to shipping. It's able to be secured with Velcro to the door frame for extra stability but we find it works great without it
I used this to replace my broken screen sliding door. It's very convenient to just walk through it and for my pets too. It doesn't fasten as automatically as they say but that's not a big deal.
It has only a few small velcro patches to hold it to the door jam so it is difficult to keep a tight seam without stapling or taping the areas not fastened firm. Also there are too few magnetic connector strips in my opinion--and the overlap is minimal so the magnets sometimes barely connect. A tallish person (over 5'8") will find they need to dip down a bit going through the screen due to the sewed connection at the top.
Otherwise we like the screen. How durable it is with kids constantly going in and out is a question. I am not sure how long the small velcro atachments will last.
We have been using this product for over 10+ years. This is the third one we have ordered. They are fantastic for keeping the flying insects out and allows us to leave the door open for our pets, 6 kids and 17 grandchildren to run in and out to the pool. Almost everyone who comes over to enjoy our home and pool ask where we got this Instant Door Screen. I was recently telling some I tried another brand advertised on TV and it did not work nearly as well as this product from Sky Mall. We will always order from them once the traffic flow finally wears it out. They are reasonably priced and the best Screen on the market.
We bought this screen because we have a sliding glass door that needs a screen. We would have to special order a screen and so we opted to try something less expensive.
The screen is okay. I think I expected it to be better quality than it is. We had to add some screws at the top as the rod kept falling. It's better than leaving the door wide open as it does block some of the bugs from coming inside but not completely. The magnets don't always stick back together. So for the price I give it an average score because it's better than nothing.
I used it for the first time this past weekend and liked the fact that the magnets actually clasp. I was able to leave the door open to my deck and walk back and forth. IT definately works better if both doors are open. hard to manuver with only one door open.
It is not very sturdy when you walk through it. It has fallen down many times. It is now off the door. Not sure if we will keep putting it up.
Using it in a dance studio. Back studio has a steel door that opens on to a back lot with bugs and Mosquitos. Can now open to let in fresh air safely.!
I bought the screen in late summer, good quality, fit perfect, the magnetics are strong to hold in the wind.!
I wasn't sure about this product, but I went for it anyways and it is great!
Easy to set up and the best thing is that the dogs can now go in and out without me having to open the door for them while keeping the bugs out.
I bought this so we could open the door and let fresh air come in without the bugs coming in too, my dogs are able to come and go with ease as well, would recommend it to anyone that doesn't want to spend the $$$$$$ on a more permanent solution.
We have an oversized door and a custom made screen door was cost prohibitive. We are so happy with our new instant door screen!!! It's super easy to put up, lets all the fresh air in and it's great.
The instant door screen was evrything we had expected. Our dog learned to use it with no trouble.
We bought this for our back door and it is exactly what I expected. Actually the screen material is really durable.
We bought this for our back door to keep insects out and to give the illusion of a door; it's a bit of a gnat magnet at the moment and it's a little short for our door (yes, I measured it, twice), but it's working. The velcro adhesive is not strong enough so I've replaced those, but otherwise it's working well.
I took the screen down after about 2 weeks. The idea is good, however the product isn't great. It needs either more magnets for connection points or more weight on the bottom. As is, it doesn't always close and when it does it does not create a good barrier to keep out pests (ie - the magnets don't align and close the screen totally).
We don't have too many bugs here in Denver, but the ability to leave the door open to our patio without the incursion of flys, dirt and leaves is very important.!
Based on the price I wasn't sure what was going to arrive on our doorstep. This product is perfect for what we needed! We live in Colorado and we don't have much in the way of bugs, just flies and bees, and this will work great to keep them out! I get fresh air and my kiddos and dog can go in and out as they please! Love it! (The only bad note is that it is a little unsightly and awkward on the front door for visitors)
I was tempted to give the Instant Screen Door - 36" a 5-star rating, particularly since we have been using this product for years. Living in a historic 1830 classic Federal-Greek Revival house, we did not want to mar its beauty with traditional screen doors. The only problem is the doors (there are four) are 37" wide. So, in our case, the screen door is good in that it works better an the alternative, and should be great if your doors are 36" or narrower.
I was looking for a way to let my dog go in and out at his leisure without bugs coming in and out and this did the trick! Very easy installation and it didn't take long for my meek pup to figure out how to go through it.
My friend gave me one that's one size larger, I used it on my front door. I loved it. That's why I ordered this one for my back door. This not have time to hang it up till last week. However, it is not as well made as the larger one, the opening edge is torn.
I bought two of these. They are easy to put up, look great, easy to walk though and are secure! My husband said he "had doubts" when I ordered them....but after seeing them installed. He had to admit..."they look pretty good!" They are also easy to use for our dog and 6 year old.
works great-keeps bugs out
This removable door screen is handy for places where you don't have space to deal with a traditional screen door. It shipped quickly, came as described and was easy to install. I suspect the velcro will wear out, but that should be easy to replace. Not for use in areas where you need to keep children or pets in/out as there is not way to secure closed other than the magnets. It keeps the bugs out though. I used it to replace a Phantom screen door that guests kept running into because is was almost invisible. It is also easy to take down and store in cold weather.
I bought this screen and love it. We are able to keep sliding glass doors open and bugs out. Even our dogs go in and out at their leisure.
the design does not allow for the flap to open pushing out from the left inside and the velcro side tags are not positioned well for frame attachment. The sides need to be wider than the door opening to be affixed properly.
This was a replacement screen. My other one had been on my door for almost 8 years and the other day when I went to go through, the screen tore. I love this screen and wish SkyMall had the larger single door size from Improvements. I'll be ordering from Improvements instead. Needed the 32x80 to cover the complete door. 79 inches was too short for the standard size back door.
Fit perfect and created a perfect close to keep the bugs out and allow the air in. Self closing works perfectly.
fit on our French Door perfectly. now we can keep that door open to let in the natural breeze.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT.I BOUGHT IT FOR MY FRONT DOOR.I CAN AIR MY WHOLE FRONT ROOMS WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT BUGS,ALSO GREAT WHEN GRANDCHILDREN VISIT.
Although the opening does close the opening does not go back to closed position. The best closure is Magic Screens, due to the multiple magnets on the opening. The opening does not over lap, but snaps together shut. Your product with more magnets and connect closure would be a great improvement.
It was very easy to install. Though it could use more Velcro attachments on the sides.
The design looked like it was a good idea, well thought out with good quality materials. However, the 60" screen did not fit our French Doors, and we had to return it.
Was too long for our door frame, therefore had gaps on the sides because it didn't lay flush with the sides of the door. Flies were still able to get in on the sides because of this. Had to return it. Would be great if instead of opening in the middle of the door frame, would just open on one side. Unless you plan to keep your door open all the time it is an inconvenience to open and close the door and try to walk through the netting.
Due to my job, I do a lot of shopping on the internet, and this is one of the best products I have purchased. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
Bought to replace one bought elsewhere. This one has less cross over at the front and it is difficult to make it fit as it should.
Very well made... Material is durable n fits the opening exactly....magnets hold the opening securely...very Satisfied n will recommend
We bought this last week. It works better than expected. It features magnets on the split that automatically connect back together. It is a well-made high quality product
I am a renter so could not have a screen door installed and we really need one (mosquitos and no AC!) When I bought this instant door, it arrived very quickly, installed easily and is high quality. I really love it and it was the perfect solution for me.
I purchased this as a housewarming gift for a friend and was disappointed to see the poor quality and cheap material it was made of. It's fallen out of the door several time and the magnetic clasps don't catch all the time so bugs easily get in. It's an ok design but not worth the money.
This screen is easy to install and the material is good quality; however, the fit on the bottom is not very good. The bottom is made of a 2" fabric band material that has magnets in the opening seam to close the screen. The magnets do not come together at the bottom part of the screen because the material does not lay in a straight line and the directions are specific in saying "do not iron the screen". I'm thinking about inserting a wire along the bottom to keep it straight and allow the magnets to come together. The top and middle magnet's do come together with a hand adjustment after walking through.
I looked at this screen for a long time thinking it would be flimsy. But it's not. It's sturdy, goes up easy, stays in place, magnets hold the opening together very well and allows my cats in and out without the bugs coming in!
Easy to put up and use, just what I wanted.
It is hard to install for one person. It does not close properly when my dogs or I go in or out so I had to stop and redo the magnets every time. The side strips took off paint from the wood on my doors. The metal part that is supposed to hold the rod did not hold the rod. I tried repositioning the whole thing and then the extension pole was not long enough. Right now it is in the floor of one of my bedrooms.
My kitchen is attached to my garage but there is not enough room to open a screen door. This solves the problem perfectly. I get the fresh air from outside without the bees and flies and bugs coming in the house. This is well worth the investment and fits the door great.
The screen started unraveling after only one week.
The mesh is too stiff, which means the few magnets that are attached and that are not strong enough, do not come back together to close. Very disappointed. Returned to to the company.
I purchased the screen to provide easy access form the deck into the house, the grandkids and the dog love it..I never have to mive the go in and out easliy all is well...
I bought this for my daughter's new apartment and it was perfect. Keeps the bugs out and the light and breeze in.
I bought one of these from the grocery store. The Velcro didn't work..had to use my own. The fabric was thin and frayed. I was so pleased to see that this product is so well constructed...very sturdy and hardy. Velcro and magnets great. I'm so happy
The screens are great. They definitely keep the flies out. And you can see through them. The key to get used to it right away.
The magnets that hold the two sides of the screen together in the middle are not strong enough to hold against a minor breeze. I will be returning the screen that I did not install
Hate it. Won't close won't stick to the wall!
Exactly what I'd hoped it would be! Put it on one side of a sliding glass door in my basement which had no sliding screen door. Allows fresh air in and provides easy in and out access for me. I use the area right outside the door as a workspace for some crafts that I do. I need to be outside because I use an adhesive which needs proper ventilation. This way, I can glue my objects outside and bring them back inside without constantly having to try to open and close the heavy sliding door. Thanks!
Sent this as a gift and they absolutely love it. Easy to install and works great.
Easy to put up and take down. Love the light and fresh air and separation it gives from the outside. Yes, magnets are not strong enough so I have to fix them sometimes even when don't pass through and definitely when I pass through, but for the benefits I'm glad I bought it.
Works perfect. Quality is better than expected. Worth spending a few dollars more for.
Overall disappointed. Even cleaning surfaces prior to install the Velcro on sides don't hold and the magnets that should 'click' the screen closed behind you are not strong enough to do so. :-(
The screen was satisfactory. The product concept is good and it solves a need that many people have. However, it falls short of certain features:
1. It's not as wide as claimed so it falls short for the door width advertised.
2. The bottom should be weighted down so that it falls well and seals the bottom edge and also helps remove the folds developed from the packaging.
A couple of advanced features or upgrades on the mesh that would be useful is to have an enclosure into which the mesh can be rolled into. This way, we could roll the mesh screen out of the way when not in use such as during the day or in the winter. You could also sell it for a higher price since it adds value to the product.
The instant door was very disappointing. The magnets were not strong enough to keep it closed. had cheaper screens that performed a lot better. It was not worth the money
Screen is much better than a door. Does not have quite enough material for the magnets to catch at the bottom and the magnet above that one. Have seen one someone bought in Europe with four overlapping panels hung from a header and it was much more effective. Could not find that online so this is perhaps the next best thing.
Order shipped on time but the screen was torn at the magnet. It took me an hour to sew it. I needed it right away or I would have sent it back. Please inspect the item before shopping.
The product is poorly designed. It needs more magnets to get it closed. What good is a bug net with big wide gap in the middle without magnets. Also, they need to ensure same length for both side. We are in the process to return it.
This screen is useful and durable. My only issue is they size that was recommended for the door I have, which is 31 inches, is incorrect. It was recommended we purchase the 30 inch. We should have purchased the larger size, it would have fit better.
I bought this screen after the failure of an "invisible" screen door. My space is hard to fit and this fit is much better than the prior door. It works well, but when it came, part of the Velcro adhering material was missing. I used other Velcro that I had, and it works, but just okay. The door itself allows breezes in and keeps bugs out and that is exactly what I wanted.
The delivery was quite a bit later than advertised, though. I was getting messages to review the product long before it arrived.
We followed the measuring instructions on the website to the letter before ordering this screen for our patio door. My husband (an engineer) confirmed the measurements I ordered. Unfortunately, the screen was too narrow when we received it and could have easily used another 2" on the width. If your door width is close to the next wider size, consider ordering up. For us, this product is on its way back to the manufacturer.
I bought this as a cheaper alternative to getting custom sliding screen doors for a 48 inch opening which is ridiculously expensive. But because this is not a custom made screen, there are small gaps here and there. The mosquitoes seem to know it and I have been woken up by them every night I‘ve tried to rely on this screen for bug protection.
this is the second home I purchased this screen for. It is easy to use and install. would not purchase any other
After seeing mine installed, my daughter is going to order one.
I need the velcro to all be black instead of two different colors. I have a dark brown door frame.
We have 5' French doors but the screen does not go wide enough to completely close and the magnets are not together while the door hangs, creating gaps. We did order the 80" screen
Had the screen door for a month now and it is working out quite well, so easy to put up, even our dog likes going through it!
Compared to other products I have tried, This one is the best. Can't give 5 stars because the manufacture needs to add 1 inch to the product to that the ends fit inside the jambs better.
Although it says the large one can be used for sliding doors it just doesn't work... Complete waste of money
It works for me I would not be able to have a screen with out this product Thank you
The screen fits perfectly on our office door and it is an ideal solution for us. Due to the security gate on our door, this is the only type of screen we could have. The magnets work fine for us. Sometimes we have to make sure the door is overlapping in the right way when we go through the screen, but that is to be expected. And it keeps out the flies and bugs. We will be ordering another one for the door on our house.
We have a Yorkie who rings a bell when he needs to go outside. We still had to open the door for him so this Instant Door Screen works well. When the weather is nice we can leave the door open and he can go in and out whenever he pleases. We like it better than a "doggie door" and he learned to use it in under a minute. Great idea./
I bought this screen six weeks ago and have been using it for my back door to patio entry.... Overall it works well although you have to help it close properly when you walk through it or else most times the panels don't end up being flush which can allow bugs to get in the house. A few more magnets between the panels would probably help.
I bought this for a French door out to my pool area. Thought it would be nice to have a screen so I can leave the doors opened. I saw this on a flight from DC and thought I would give it a try. I received it and as soon as I opened the package I knew it was worthless. I did try to install but it was a joke. This piece of junk must be made by the Chinese. DO NOT BUY. Was a waste of time to order, try and return.
This instant door is perfect! Nice quality, easy to install.
I have had these in the past and bought 2 more, they are an excellent product they close behind you, keeping out the bugs. these are also the only 96" tall door screens that I could find to fit my doors.
