Now this is a real easy project to do. No joke. Really. Easy peasy....
There was this hole that progressively got bigger and bigger in my patio screen door, for over 3 years.
I have stuck my fingers in it, seen bugs come in for a visit.....lol So I decided it was time. Just don't do it when it's 100 degrees out.
You should remove the door frame in order to make your job easier, but I was having a hard time and I did not want to ruin the frame, so I decided to work with it in place.
Here is the hole.
You can purchase this screen repair kit at any hardware store.
First, remove both handles, the inside
and the outside.
Next you need to remove the screen and the inside rubber thingy, yeah that's what I called it until I learned that it is called a spline.....lol Just pry it at the corner and pull, pull, pull. Remove the screen and discard.
Roll the screen out and because I did not remove the door frame, I would suggest that you use tape to
temporarily hold it in place.
This is the tool that is in the kit that you use to install the screen.
Sort of like a little pizza cutter.
Start at one corner and push the spine in place with your tool. Continue on one side and then do the opposite side, and then finish off by doing the other 2 sides.
When all sides are complete, you trim the screen using a blade knife close to the edge.
Put both handles back on.
Here it is, new screen.
