Thumbs up

Hi, I have seen photos of the screen door that scamp offers. I have just about figured how to copy it, though I am looking for a picture to be able to build it.
I need to see how they installed the pins that go into the screen frame and then slide along the bi-fold track. The screen framing seems too narrow to hold the pins. Could any one help? Maybe a photo? or a talk thru, any help would be greatly apppreciated. Thanks

Have you thought of using nylon button things that go on with one screw .

thanks kevin, for the info, I guess I could just usre the piano hinge, I just thought the bi-fold track on top would 1) stiffen the unit up and also be a good means to finish off and keep bugs out without having some funky foam tape esxposed. Then I was thinking, maybe the scamp screen door does not even have that track on top? Thanks for the help, The wooden door looks great, but I like the idea of the folding door, because when I finally figure out how to get a screen room attached and made I figure I may just leave the door open to enable ease back and forth

These are interesting and they do take orders for custom sizes:

I don't know if they make custom screens small enough to fit our eggs.

Thanks Miss Donna, that info was pretty good. You stated that you had a stock scamp door, does you door have a bifold track on top, and does the screen frames have pins that slide in the track? Also , maybe you could help me, I tried to search, for the scamp screen door installation instructions, I thought I read them here? If I remember correctly, it showed all the parts that came with the screen door. thanks Suger D. McAllen

Scamp mounts the screen door using "Johnson Hardware." The top of the bi-fold has an area where one pivot point is anchored, the other at the bottom. There is a top track at the top of the door frame and another portion of the Johnson hardware is mounted there and the top "pivot" fits into this piece.

I'd take a picture, but I removed all the Johnson hardware (it was worn out) and now use three 4" piano hinges.

I vaguely remember the post you're talking about, seems to me the screen door was for sale on e-bay. I'll see if I can find it and will post back here.

Suger, there appears to be all kinds of Johnson hardware... this site: Johnson Hardware. com, and the fourth one down... 1700 MEDIUM-duty bi-fold hardware is the type that came with my Scamp bi-fold door from the factory. Maybe my weak description and the pictures from the site will help in the explanation?

If anyone should ever after-market order the Scamp screen door from Scamp, it sure would be nice to have the instructions (hint, hint, hint) for the Document Center... when that gets fixed!
