I used Lexan and slide it inside the channels and the put a sheet metal screw in each corner to keep it from rattling. Really like being able to leave the door open and not loose the heat or cool. Also like being able to use the homemade push bar to open the latch and not have to push the knob on the panel. Only have to slide the panel to open the main door when it's closed.

Did mine to. To make the top curve, use a large coffee can. I used a Folgers. Just line up tangent to side and top, score lexan and snap and Sand for smoothness. Really easy and inexpensive mod.

Thank you for inspiring us to add the acrylic to our door. The acrylic fits right in the groove and we are adding screening spline to keep the acrylic in place. No drilling, no velcro or tape needed. There's enough spline to remove the acrylic and then re-install as necessary. Thanks again.

Merry Christmas

Adrienne

The only reason I put screws in mine was to eliminate the rattling.
