Wonderful! But, shouldn’t you be recovering and not outside inventing stuff.

Curious as to what your trying to accomplish here?
Have been looking at some way to raise the handle higher on the screen door to make it easier to unlatch while exiting the coach. Currently have to bend down while holding onto grab handles to unlatch. Or step down a couple steps, which puts you very close to the door and very awkward if you have your hands full.
Thanks

It's just a screen door release. A lot of times we have the door open with the screen closed this allows us to open the screen door without sliding the plastic window to get to the handle.

Would be a great improvement. Maybe you can inspire Pat Carroll.

Tommy, nice modification. The new owner is going to get one tricked out ride when he gets your coach.

The previous owner of our coach built an ingenious lever type device and fishing line that ran through tiny holes in the upper handlebar down to the screen door latch and back up again. No bending down or having to open the plastic slider window. The fishing line broke a few weeks ago and I have spent hours trying to restring the contraption to work as the original without success! I will have to call him to ask if he can remember the correct orientation. It is truly a great little invention that appeared so simple I never worried about looking at it carefully!

Works well. Only issue is the rubber grommet wears after a couple years but they are replaceable and available at lowesClick image for larger version

I put a grab rail across the screen door. then removed only the part that grabs the lock. then put magnets on door frame so you only have to push the door open.

I gave that so though but didn't think it would work with PETS.

I have a very small dog so I only needed 1 magnet. But the more magnets the harder to push open.

Isn’t it amazing that after 6 years of asking Entegra for a two way latch in owner focus meetings....THEY STILL CAN’T OR WON’T FIGURE THIS ONE OUT!

Amazing!
