    In answer to all of the questions;

    - yes we have brought it up with the owner and no they will not replace

    - they have said we can replace with a security door at our own expense but this is something we cannot afford, it is upwards of $800 for this size

    - this is the screen we have, sorry it's a link again I can't seem to upload pics on the app

    Otherwise, for a cheaper option, you could just measure it up and get a cheap piece of board or plastic and wedge it in place. Depending on the type of screen you may be able to drill some holes and zippy tie to make it more secure as well.
    We tried the safety gate, the round bits at the end prevented us from closing the glass door.

    I'll have a chat to dh see if there is some way we can attach perspex or timber. Hopefully we.can do it in a way that the owner won't b!tch about and refuse our bond when we vacate.

    It's a PITA to deal with. I faced similar issues when my kids were younger and had to get resourceful with sheets of timber, perspex and zippy ties so as not to damage anything.
    Good luck. I hope you figure something out.

    What about using the double sided 3M Velcro tape (which is easy to remove) to attach the perspex? You could get perspex cut big enough so you could use the double sided tape to stick it onto the metal parts of the door frame. You just might have to stick it on the outside of your screen door so you can still close the glass door.

    We can give that a go. Don't know how long it will last with the weather as there's no protection on the outside

    You could try replacing the tubing and flyscreen with the pet level stuff - its still flyscreen but its much tougher than normal. We had problem in our old house of our big male cat jumping on the window and falling out the other side taking the flyscreen with him. We replaced with pet stuff and he wasnt able to do it again. Its just from bunnings.

    Thanks for that, we will give that a go. So you can upgrade the tubing as well as the screen?

    we got new stuff just so it was nice and fresh and rubbery (i thought that might hold better than the old one which was a bit dried out) but there wasnt a pet specific tubing. It was very cheap. Grab the nifty tool for it as well, and take the door off and lay it down flat while you do it. I was lazy with first window and tried to replace the flyscreen with the window in place, so much quicker, easier and tight fit when i laid it down to do it. We found the tighter you can get the screen the better it holds in.
