Magnetic screen latch
The most well known option is retractable door screens with magnetic hardware. This type utilizes a user-friendly latching system for simple in-and-out access throughout the day.

Latch and release handle
Like magnetic screen latch hardware, a latch and release handle system is not only easy to use, but this reinforced, controlled option is also quiet to operate and promises additional security from the risk of any unintended openings, making it an excellent option if you have young children or pets around the home. Enjoy all of the benefits that come with your new screen while also having the additional peace of mind offered by this super secure hardware.
