lining up the screws is torture

Seems pretty good quality.
Conceptually the installation should be a snap. Cutting the existing hole I had a little larger to fit this door was a cinch. Then I marked and drilled the holes for the screws. Here's the problem: if you are the teeniest tiniest bit not level or plumb, the holes won't line up. You'll be perfect on one side but need to make swiss cheese out of your door on the other side. Then if your door is a little bit on the thicker side of the allowable range, it is IMPOSSIBLE to get the screw into the receiving piece so that the grab and you can start tightening because getting them lined up when the ends are deep in the door cavity is really really hard. I got 4 of them pretty easily by luck, had some trouble with one (took 10 minutes), and then spent a full hours swearing to get the final screw fitted. This whole issue could be much improved if the kit came with a drill bit GUIDE to help the drill bit go in absolutely perpendicular to the door.
I think if your door is on the thinner side of allowable, you won't have such a problem.
Now I am LOATHING the day when I have to change the flap, because I'll have to take off the frame screws to get to the flap (what kind of silly design is that??).
I have to say I would not buy this again, even though it is on clearance and looks pretty good once it is on (most of the swiss cheese wood is covered and the rest I just caulked).

Received this product on time and as advertised. Visual inspection showed a good design with easy to follow instructions and installation. Once installed the pet door fit very nicely on storm door and matched the color of the existing door. Pets used it without any issues, after the install. Only reason I did not give it 5 stars is due to the fact that after installation the provided screws stick out about a half inch or so, wish they would have provided a few different sizes for different door width, other than that would definitely recommend especially for the price
