With a little push, our screen door will open without moving the handle. I don't think it's defective, as I've seen other doors of that design do the same. (just the way it is..)

Next week will be our first trip with 2 new puppies. It won't take long before they discover that they won't need to wait for a human to open the door for them. 

I could probably install some sort of  "hokeyt" hasp for secondary security. But was hoping someone here may have another suggestion. 

Thank you, 

Dave

After futzing around with a couple of ideas, it dawned on me to simply close the stair handrail over the door. 

Done...

Sounds like the latch needs adjustment. Neither design I have ever owned had this issue.
