Step 1) Remove retainer strips


ImpressionsInsertChangeStep2 The storm door of the Impressions system comes with both a screen and a glass insert. To change out the insert from screen to glass, or vice versa, stand on the interior side of the storm door and use a small blunt tool to gently twist and pull to remove the retainer strip from one side. Hold the screen or glass insert in place and remove the other side. Set the retainer aside to reuse.

Step 2) Remove/replace desired insert


 Now carefully take the current screen or glass insert out and replace it with the desired insert.
