Handle ideal worked great. Now just need to get a storm door protector for the lower screen. Wife shot down the lexan option.

If you use lexan for the lower half of the door, You can cut it to fit the frame instead of the screen and use velcro to hold it to the inside of the door. It's easily removed once the kids are old enough to open an additional latching mechanism. Put a second layer on the outside with full length velcro strips on both pieces for winter use and you've built a double pane window using a dead air gap for insulation.

Or forget the Velcro and cut the plastic to fit the inside grooves on the door. Slide up, for the top, down for the bottom. Hold in place with screen spline.

I used a screen door dog guard turned vertically on our old hybrid trailer. It was a metal lattice with flanges on either end for attaching to a screen door. I purchased it at Menards. They came in either a black or white finish.
Unfortunately our screen door in our new Rockwood Mini lite 2304KS is too narrow to accomidate one. I'm hoping that our 2 little dogs don't tear the screen.
