Trick-or-treating is a front door tradition. Check out these helpful tips!
Do you have a small entry way and are worried about pushing trick-or-treaters off the front step when they ring the doorbell this Halloween? With a little bit of preparation, you can make trick-or-treating hassle-free. Simply make a few adjustments on your storm door to prepare.
For a full-glass door, remove the glass. Place a flathead screwdriver in the groove next to the door frame approximately one inch from the top or bottom of the glass insert. Next, tilt the screwdriver at a slight angle, tipping the handle towards the door frame. Tap the end of the screwdriver until the end of the retainer pops out of the track; set aside. Remove the glass and store in safe place. Leave the storm door shut and reach through the frame to hand out treats. Replace the glass and retainer strips after Halloween!
With a self-storing door (pictured), simply remove the glass and screen, following these simple instructions. Leave your storm door latched and reach through the opening to hand out treats. Bonus, if you're a pet owner, you'll also benefit from keeping cats and dogs from escaping through the front door. Replace the glass and screen after Halloween!
