    Inexpensive door openers

    Do such things exist? I have a door that leads out to my patio door at my apartment. I rarely use it, but would probably use it more if I could get in/out independently. Are there inexpensive door openers that could be used? I have a door opener on my primary door.

    What kind of door (sliding or swing)?

    All electronic door openers are going to be expensive. Have you looked for second-hand?

    Not sure if you can use these but "lever" door latches verses knob latches are much easier to operate.

    Push open... tie a string/loop on the door handle to pull shut as you pass thru
