Screen door bar

I am looking for a screen door bar to go on the inside of the screen door to make closing easier. Any suggestions?

I bought one, but there doesn't appear to be enough room to install. Am I missing something?

I agree, I just put one on my sun seeker 2860 and it makes opening and closing the door much easier. It feels much sturdier than the flimsy plastic handle that it came with.

why didn't you say so? Even though the door frame is narrow, there is plenty of room to install it. A very popular add on.

I put one on a 2013 21FBRS. No problem, did not use instructions, just winged it. Need to drill, and need screwdiver.

Made my own that when I push the rh side it unlatches the screen door so it opens. Works pretty good. Now I just have to screw it permanently to the screen door instead of clamping it.

Nice pics, OC. I like the looks of that. When are you going to start selling those? It appears a little more prominent than the ones for which links were provided above.

We have one on our Salem and it works great, wouldn't be without one. It'll be one of the first mods to the XLR if it ever gets here...

Nah, just shows what lazy people do to get out of that little bit of extra work.

Didn't I hear somewhere that "laziness is the mother of invention". Looks great OC...as does most of your mods. I got one of the Camco handles and it is awesome.

Here is some photos of mine. Screen door is narrow but there is enough room to mount it sturdy.
