Replacing the screen door?

Has anyone replace their screen door? I'd like to replace mine with one with a bigger pass through. I have no idea how to remove it from the hinges. I cannot tell what I need to do to remove the hinge pins.

Hi

All of the doors (screen and otherwise) I've seen on AS trailers have been 100% custom built. Replacing one with another design would be a build from scratch project. If you have some tools for working with aluminum, that's all possible. It would be quite a project.

Okay, I think I just changed my mind! Hahaha All I want is to have a larger pass through to make passing things like drinks etc. possible with the screen door closed. I believe the plastic slider is called a Gizzy. You have given me an idea though... I think I will look at widening that part of mine to accommodate the larger Gizzy. I'm already in the middle of a shell off, so what the heck!

Hi

Looking at mine, there's plenty of room to pass a normal drink through. You aren't going to get a loaded dinner plate through, but that's a function of width rather than height.

Simply moving the slide supports to accommodate a larger slider might be practical. There's nothing magic about the slider. If you can't find one, making one should be pretty easy. If you have a buddy with a 3D printer, making one would be *very* easy.
