Fix for wood screen door that is out of square
(College Park, GA)
I'm looking for the add-on part that attaches to the inside of a wood screen door: It will make a door that is sagging on one side straighten up. There is an adjustment to shorten or lengthen the rod. I think the rod is attached diagonally. Right now, you have to pull up on one side of the door to make it close all the way, but it is not too big for the opening.
Hi I have seen hardware like that on antique doors but I am not aware of anyone making it.
One simple solution might be to use stainless steel wire stretched diagonally from one corner to the other, then secured with screws and washers.
You could also buy some crimp on connectors and make a very nice looking support cable that looks like the door was made that way.
It is possible you could find 1/8" threaded rod in lengths long enough to span the door diagonally at a place like metals supermarket.
Ive seen it at Lowes and Home Depot but usually only 48" long max.
If you find the threaded rod, you could get suitable nuts and angle brackets from any hardware store.
