How to fix a sliding screen door (Page 2)


Step 5. Tape the new screen onto the door frame with masking tape. Then make a diagonal cut at each corner to remove the excess screen. This will keep the screen from bulging at the corner when it is pressed into its channel.

 

Step 6. Force the screen into the door groove using the convex wheel on the spline roller installation tool. Donít force the screen in with a single pass. Rather, make several lighter passes until the screen reaches the bottom of the channel.

 

Step 7. Once the screen is in the channel, install the spline material. Use the concave wheel and work slowly to make sure the spline is forced all the way into the channel. Several passes may be required.

 

Step 8. Trim off any excess screening with a sharp utility knife. Do not cut the spline. Reinstall the wheels and replace the panel in the door.
