Standard Retractable Screen Doors


Keep the screen tracks of your ODL Standard Retractable Screen Door clean and lubricated with furniture polish or WD-40. Once a year, check track screws to make sure they are secure. Do not operate the screen during freezing temperatures.

If you should rip the fabric screen, contact ODL to learn more about how to order a replacement screen cartridge. Simply pull the damaged screen cartridge out, and slide the new cartridge in.

If your screen is not retracting quickly enough:

  1. Check to make sure that the top track is not causing any binding of the screen handle. If you do have binding, make sure that you installed the top track per the installation instructions. Remember, you do not want to use a square or level for positioning your top track.
  2. Make sure tracks are clean and free from any debris that could cause the screen to slow down.
  3. Check track screws to make sure they are secure, but not too tight. Track screws that are installed too tightly can cause the track to twist, which in turn can cause the screen to bind.
  4. Apply a lubricant such as furniture polish or WD-40 to the tracks regularly.
