    Instructions on what gets put on first would of been nice. Over all, once I figured out what goes where and after self tapping the screws the product is actually great. It even makes the raising and lowering the door much quieter. Very good product overall.

    Great product, Five Star Doors is the only e-commerce company selling 18-foot strut kits. They could charge a lot more for these kits, which shows how much integrity they have. The service, packaging, and product are 5 stars!
