    • This product is advertized for use in RV’s. However the size is too big for the doorways. It looks awful when hung , and with the magnets wider than the door it doesn’t connect properly. Any answers on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated. As far as the purpose of the screen it does keep the bugs out and is very light weight.
