Magnetic Door Screen

Based on a YouTube video that I came across, I knew once my screen door latched broke, I was going to do this mod.

What is the purpose of the wires on the main door glass frame?

Just some string that I used to hold up the foil insulation over the window in the summer. Just tuck in the insulation behind the string and it stays in place.

Good idea Mike, I might black out ours as well for added insulation (you know abt South Florida )

Also, did I see you have one of those bars on the screen?

Yeah, just added that bar as an extra hand hold when opening the door. Its a nice touch. A little more ergonomic. Wife likes it, so we're good!

Ordered it. Received it. Installed it. Love it.

Also removed the original handle/slidestopper that already broke.

Thanks for the tip Mike!

Its not meant to be leaned on, or assisting you going up the stairs. Just to hold the door when opening, or closing. I mounted it to the door, close to where I put the mounting of the magnets. This way when you give it a tug, the screen door will pop away from the main door magnets with ease. If you ever closed your door while squeezing size 13 shoes in the lower stairwell, hunched over, its a pain. :-)
