Smart Slider is a hands-free device that you can attach to virtually any standard sliding patio door. When this device is attached, you'll no longer have to try to open your door while holding things in your hands, running the risk of letting bugs and other pests in as you do so. Instead, you'll be able to give the device a tap with one foot and your patio door will slide open. To close your door, you'll be able to do the exact same thing.

- Made of Weatherproof Pvc
Each slider is made of durable PVC, the same material commonly used to make pipes found within the house ( such as under the sink ). This PVC is also weatherproof, so you'll be able to keep your slider outdoors in a variety of weather conditions, including heavy rain, without worrying about it getting damaged.
The Smart Slider is white, so it'll either match or complement the color of most patio doors.
This device is also compact, so once it's installed, it'll be hardly noticeable to anyone who sees your patio door. Furthermore, it won't interfere with the way you normally slide your door back and forth to open or close it.
- Reduces Risk of Mess
A lot of people attempt to open their sliding patio door with one hand while carrying food, toys, or anything else in the other. This could easily result in something being spilled outdoors on the patio or indoors on the flooring on the other side of the door. Fortunately, when you use the Smart Slider, you'll be able to keep both hands on the objects you're carrying, thereby reducing the risk that you'll drop and / or spill something.
- Less Pests Can Come in
By using this device, you'll likely enable yourself to open and close your patio door more quickly than you would otherwise. Having it open for less time means that less pests, such as bugs or even slugs, will have time to get into your home. There won't be as much time for dirt or debris to blow in, either.
- Works on Almost Any Door
The Smart Slider hasn't been designed for any particular brand of patio door. As long as your patio door slides and is a similar shape to most on the market, it should work with it. If you've got more than one patio door and only one slider, that means you'll likely be able to move the slider from door to door, if needed.
- Can Install Without Tools
To install one of these devices, you won't need any tools besides your own two hands, and you may even be able to install yours with one hand. If you decide to remove your slider from your door after a certain period of time, this won't damage your door, either.
- Install Netting
Some people install extra netting over the patio door in order to keep bugs and dirt out of the house. However, it normally takes longer to install this netting than it would to install a Smart Slider. Plus, netting won't enable you to open or close your door any more quickly than usual, and like the screen already on your sliding door, it may acquire holes after a few weeks or months.
- Use Foot With no Device
To keep your hands free, you could use your foot to open a sliding patio door with no Smart Slider. If you're too aggressive when doing this, though, or just have bad aim, you might end up putting a hole in your door's screen.
- May Show Dirt
Since you or other members of your household will be touching this device frequently with a foot or shoe, it won't be a surprise if it gets covered in dirt. Although the shade of white it comes in looks nice with most patio doors, it'll show dirt easily. If you don't want guests to see that, you'll need to wipe it down regularly, which will, of course, take time.
