Step 7: Test the screen door

7. Test the screen door by pulling on the center handle. It should glide up and down without hesitation. «»
Test the door by pulling the screen up and down a few times. Check to make sure that it remains within the side tracks at all times and latches securely at the bottom. Note that the tension on the screen is preset at the factory. However, if it ever needs to be adjusted, just pop off an end cap from the cassette and wind the screen a little tighter.
