Keep insects and dust out when you want to catch a cool breeze by hanging this handy retractable screen in any doorway. Theres no need to install a permanent screen door when you have this retractable model. It can fit over most wood or metal doors....more
I had seen this type of screen door in several home shows and large home centers but the price was $400. My search led to the ODL retractable screen door on the Overstock website. Bonus! It was on sale. Our contractor, while doing other work, installed it and it is great! It's used when a breeze and fresh air is desired through the house. I've already ordered another one for the front door. It took a little getting used to in the beginning - it doesn't look like the typical screen/storm door as it could have had us walking through it but past reviews were helpful.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? White is white
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Durable, attractive, quality product
How accurate was the on site description of the product? On the mark
The standard door ODL retractable screen was just the product we needed for the inward opening door to our patio. We only had limited space on the frame around the door and did not want to keep holding the door open with one hand when taking food or refreshments out on the patio. I had no problem with the installation although it does take some minor modifications to fit the exact door sill configuration. If you are not handy with a hacksaw, drill, screwdriver, and making accurate measurements, this may not be the product for you. People with pets or young children or grandchildren will find the screen is very transparent when closed which could lead to children or pets running through it and damaging it.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Very Good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Onsite escription was accurate
Simple design and easy installtion if door frame meets standard framing criteria. For my project, I had to install a filler piece above the top track to close in the space. Also, I needed to purchase another door threshold still plate so the bottom track could be attached to some type of framing structure. The interio door opened out to a patio.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color shown did not match the bronze color that was ordered. However, the bronze was what was required for the project.
How is the quality of the product? Good sturdy construction
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
These are heavy-duty doors so the quality is good in that respect. However, I had to add additional bracing to get it installed because where they said to "screw it to the frame" there wasn't a screw hole in the metal ??? Frustrated doesn't cover it. Also, it said it is for an 80" opening, but it left a 1 inch gap at the top which I had to fill up somehow. Next time, I will hire someone local to do the screen work and skip doing it through mail-order. It works, but you have to use your foot to slide it straight or the netting buckles.

I am thrilled with my retractable screen. I put it up myself in less than 2 hours and am so pleased with the color. Being able to open the front door and let cool air flow through is ideal and because I have a beautiful wood front door, this retractable screen couldn't have been a better choice.
The first one we received was torn, just took one call and OVERSTOCK CUSTOMER SERVICE was very helpful and easy to deal with. The info to return the torn one was received immediately and the replacement door was received in a couple days. Very good experience.
I was little worried buying this retractable screen door online, but Overstock didn't disappoint. It was a little difficult to install in our 1957 built house in which nothing is square, but with some doing it is everything I was hoping it would be. You cant even tell that it's closed. It looks like the house is open to the outdoors. Even the dogs ran into it the first day, not seeing it! Definitely would recommend!
Installation was a little difficult because of my entryway configuration so had to make some alterations from the actual installation instructions. Once installed however, it works perfectly and looks great. Getting lots of complements.
This product should say "ODL Retractable Screen for Standard INSWING Door". The Overstock description is WRONG: "Fits standard 6'8 in- and out-swing doors". It does not work for outswing doors.
Although a standard 36" door (of any swing) *IS* 36x80, the opening is LESS than 80 if the 'standard door' is an OUTSWING door.
There is a different product for that (perhaps ODL RSSHWE), with a lower height, although not necessarily available at Overstock.
Hi sandraven, we were able to verify this information with our support team. the screen is not in use, the screen housing and handle pull bar are about 3 ½ -4” wide. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.

Hello if I have a french door (both door open out) can I keep one of the doors closed and use the screen in question. The opening will be the right size just need to know if the 2nd door closed will serve the same as the edge of a small door
I hope I am making sense

The description does not indicate if its is a inside mount or a outside mount. If I have flush exterior, can this door be installed on the out side of a 36x80 Door. In addition does it retract right to left (if stading outside and facing the Door/) and are all of the parts included for a exterior mount?mikel1965 on May 13, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
