super simple

We bought a screen door for the door from our bedroom onto the deck.

I am a leave-the-door-open-anyway-and-risk-a-couple-of-bugs-for-the-cool-breeze person but K is made of more delectable flesh than I am and likes the door closed. Party pooper, huh?

So, off to the hardware and home we come with our super simple door.


Really. It's called the super simple screen door.

Which sounds like great advertising until you open the box.


Pieces the length of the corridor and K's not even there...

Because he's in the kitchen with the rest of the super simple door:


See the hacksaw he's using? Not included in the package.

The super simple version was though:

It's a hacksaw blade with a tube of paper wrapped around half of it. That's certainly super simple, huh?

As for the rest of the operation? Not really all that simple for us after all I'm afraid. And while I am the first to put my hand up in the 'it's not the tools it's me' evaluation, K is an engineer. An engineer and a bit of a DIY whiz so when it takes him an hour, additional tools, a whole lot of sweat and a couple of mild swear words I think it's not that we're the super simple ones but that it's a bit of false advertising going on.

That doesn't even look remotely "kantan". At least you had K to help you. That is the kind of thing I would buy believing the hype about it being simple and then I would be seriously stuck when it came to putting it together!! Are you going to post a picture of the finished product?! ;-)

That doesn't look super simple at all. Definitely sounds like false advertising, if you ask me. ; ) Hope after all the work, you and K managed to get it put on and are now enjoying a nice cool breeze minus any creepy crawlies coming into your room. : )

LOL - I can't believe it actually has that on the box. Awesome.
