Homemade Screen Door Guard

I made this yesterday. I made it so I did not have to use any fasteners. I used some of the strongest 3M double sided mounting tape to put it together and mount it. Total cost was about 30 bucks. I had half sheet of metal left over. I could make a second one for about 10 bucks.

You will raise your price if you knew what Airstream charges for them.

Wow - that turned out very nice! We have been looking for one for our 1980 International. One of our rescue Shar Peis fancies himself a squirrel hunter and we are sure it is only a matter of time before he goes through our screen door.

Feel free to message me privately if you are serious about making another!

Happy Trails!

Lowes and True Value have it in 24 x 36 sheets....24 wide is perfect for the width. I made mine 18 inches vertically.
