One afternoon someone walked up to a neighbors patio door, smashed in the glass, walked in, and walked out with a new flat screen TV, leaving my neighbors to pick up the pieces. I felt way too vulnerable so immediately started looking for a way to avert that from happening to our house and came across this product! Exactly what I had in mind. I ordered and installed and am very pleased with the end result. The price of the unit is very good. However, the shipping charge was expensive (~99$) and took about two weeks. The product quality is very good with the exception of the rushed paint job. I had to use a can of white spray paint to touch up some rust spots and uneven painted areas but not a big deal. I did not use the included security screws because after 4 stores I couldn't find a driver for them and based on other reviews I just tossed them in the loose screw bucket. I used heavy duty 4 inch screws installing with silicone on the threads to enhance seal integrity (as another reviewer suggested). I then used silicon and lock-tight to deface the screw heads. Lastly, I painted the screw heads white to disguise which matches the gate. I installed a lever doorknob so I can still use the screen (clears the knob) with nice weather and feel secure, but rely on a small strand of robust chain (painted white to match) wrapped around (used clear silicone to attach the chain links in convenient position on the mounted frame) the frame near doorknob and a heavy-duty designer combination padlock to secure. This makes it secure and qwik and easy to exit/enter. The design is such that you can modify it any way you want basically, My install is solid, looks nice, and makes a statement. For the money you will not do better. I highly recommend this as an investment to your home. Now I worry less while away and the beach will feel that much better!
