Replacing a Screen in an Aluminum Frame

 

 
Aluminum frames for screens are lightweight and easy to work with, but they bend easily. Take care not to bend the frame: Place it on a flat surface as you replace the screen.
 

Pry the vinyl spline from the grooves around the edge of the frame with a screwdriver. Retain the old spline, if it is still flexible, or replace it with new spline.

 

 

 

 

Stretch the new screen fabric tightly over the frame so that it overlaps the retaining grooves.

 

 

 

 

Use a spline roller to press the spline and screen into the grooves. Cut away the excess screen fabric with a utility knife.
