Shields lasted a year
First off, this is a great company. Excellent customer service and in the USA. We bought two double wide shields in Jan '21. The velcro that came with them lasted less than a week of my beagles scratching away to get in. I'm not upset - the velcro were tiny circles and I was skeptical it would hold the shields. I bought bigger velcro and the shield on the inside of the door held but the outside shield fell off in less than a month. The culprit was HEAT. Even in March, the direct sun warmed up the shield and the glue on the velcro, causing it to separate. In addition, when it was hot, the shield put off a burning plastic odor and it stretched, so after a few weeks of direct sun, it was warped. Lastly, the shields scratch very easily and within 2 or 3 mos, they looked awful. I'm not upset about that either, at least my door didn't look like that. By the summer of 21, I'd replaced the velcro three times. Yesterday, the velcro was once again failing and the whole shield fell right off the door. In addition, I noticed the shield on the outside of the door was tearing from the top down.
Summary: The product lasted a year and needs a better way of sticking to the door. Since I haven't found a better alternative and this is a great company I'll be buying more shields from them. Just disappointing that these days nothing exceeds expectations even when they aren't that high.
