I have a polytunnel which has been damaged/broken into. The door flap zippers are now useless; it was ever thus, really, a design fault for a cheapy 'do'. But it served well enough. Now I need to re-think the door part.

The idea of a door runner/side-ways opening door appeals but I'm open to other suggestions.

I am not without diy skills, but I am low on cash. Can the wonderful people here suggest what I might do for a cheap door opening, please?

The photo below shows the type of door I have presently.

Yes, thank you, MoS.

That chappie has a distinctive voice, doesn't he? I thought I'd seen all his videos, but I'd not seen that one.

I like the idea of the lift off hinges.

Thank you, again!

when i made my tunnel. i made my doors from 2 by 2 and stapled the polythene round it. i have one small door each end, but could easily do double doors to fill the wide opening.
