INSTALL A SCREEN SYSTEM MATERIALS
• Screen Tight Mini Track screw clips • Drill
• Screen Tight Mini Track channel
(available in 8-foot pieces) • Chop saw
• Rubber mallet
• Utility knife
• Fiberglass screen
• Screen Tight Mini Track spline • Screen Tight roller knife
Step 1 Using a straightedge, draw a line through the center of each side of the opening to be screened. Measure and mark the placement for the screw clips 8–10 inches apart along the line, starting and ending 2 inches from each corner (A). Drill a pilot hole at each mark. Insert a screw clip into each hole; do not overtighten (B). Use a small channel piece to properly adjust the height of each screw clip (C) so the channel slides easily over the screw without being too loose.
Step 2 Cut channel pieces to fit the top and bottom of the opening using a chop saw. Install the pieces by sliding the end of a channel piece over an end screw, then tap the rest of the channel onto the screw clips with a rubber mallet (D). After top and bottom channels are installed, measure, cut, and install the side channels in the same manner.
Step 3 Cut a piece of fiberglass screen a few inches larger than the opening. Starting at the top of the opening, lay screen across top channel track. Using a roller knife, evenly push spline into the top track channel groove, fastening the screen into the groove as you go. Continue pushing the spline into one side track (E), then repeat on the opposite side, ensuring that the screen remains straight as you work. Insert the spline into the bottom channel track last. If needed, remove the spline and adjust the screen as needed.
Step 4 Trim excess screen mesh flush along each edge using a utility knife.
