I added this simple handle (inside and out) to help control the door. Works good, and it's cheap!
First post for this newbie...

Is that just a simple drawer pull? I was at the factory today (42 miles door-to-door) and tested the screen door having read this post yesterday. Youza! This seems to be a must-have item.

Re: Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

Thank you so much! This seems to be a wonderful community with a wealth of information. I have the feeling that by the time my Escape is in production I will show up at the factory with a U-Haul, dump it in the yard, and say, "Please install all of this."

Re: Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

Karen, congratulations on your Escape-to-be!
I know they are looking forward to your U-Haul. See previous posts for the 500-plus options. The only trailer that has 500-plus options.

Re: Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

Thank you, Cathy. I have been lurking on this site for months and only joined when I committed to buy. I have an entire sub-folder in Picasa of items suggested on this site by experienced owners; the pictures posted are the best. This forum is truly a great resource.

Re: Custom Mods for the Hokie Escspe

Hi Karen,
Yes, the handle on the screen door is a simple handle for a screen door (from Home Depot). You have to have one on the front and back. Hard to get grandchildren to use the handle though.....just sayin'
Welcome to the world of Escape!

I spoke with Reace about adding the handle to the screen. He WARNED ME that there is a hidden spring cable inside the channel that could get damaged when drilling the screws.
Just saying....be careful.
