The flexible chain of black plastic pieces on the bottom of the screen will retract into the leading edge of the screen door when it is opened.
This component will rise up to about the mid-point of the door. If you drill through the door to install handles, there is some risk that your drill may damage the screen guides. When I drilled my door, the bit broke a string that is used to hold all of the little plastic pieces in the chain together. I ended up taking the door completely apart and tying the chain back together with a new piece of string. Since the original door was made for a wider opening than that in the Escape, I was able to remove about 5 links from the chain such that it did not rise as high into the door when it was opened. After reinstalling everything, it works great.
