    Pros: retractable concept, thats all I can think of that is good about this particular screen.
    Cons: does'nt recoil properly , screen doors don't always stay closed, screens are to short.

    Summary: The retractable screen concept was great, but Larson's never worked as promised. The screens are cut to short and won't stay in the grooves to keep out the bugs, we have to fight with it to get the screen to recoil the magnets to keep the doors shut pop ... read more
