Now you can keep the fresh air in while keeping unwanted guests out.

Phantom Screens, North America’s leading provider of retractable screens, is expanding its door screen product line with its innovative latch stop feature for Phantom retractable door screens. A retractable screen door is a sleeker, less clunky alternative to fixed door screens, allowing you to enjoy the scenery as well as your home’s design, so you’re only seeing them when you need them.

This latch stop system adds a great feature to screen doors by adding an additional layer of security by adding a locking mechanism to the screen door handle. The locking feature is simple to use; it activates by pushing the locking switch down and unlocks by pushing the locking switch upwards. This unique feature adds extra security and peace of mind - something pet owners and families will love! Now you can keep the fresh air in while keeping unwanted guests out.

Innovative, efficient, and durable doesn’t mean bigger, bulkier, and unsightly. The latch stop locking mechanism is flush with the handle and, paired with Phantom’s sleek retractable design, means no distraction from your home’s all-important curb appeal. Retractable screens are available in our standard and custom colors, including woodgrain, so you can complement the housing, slide bars, and tracks to the doorway so all anyone sees is your home’s beauty.

Phantom's retractable door screens can be used for all door types, including single, double, and sliding patio doors. The latch stop feature is a great addition to door screens with the latching handle. To find your perfect retractable screen door, visit
