Often when you repair a screen you can reuse the old screen spline. Sometimes you cant because the old screen spline is in poor condition. Screen spline is a available in quite a variety of sizes. The sizes used depend on who the predominant supplier of windows was when most of the houses were built in your area and or who made the frame your using if making a new window screen. The .250 size replaces the 1/4" aluminum spline that was used in houses built in th e fifties and sixties. This size is particularily easy for the do it yourselfer to roll in. Other factors that determine size is the material you are replacing. If for example you are replacing a thin fiberglass insect screen with a thicker material like "pet scree" than you would use at least on size smaller than the current spline. So if your current screen spline measures to a .165 than with pet screen you would use a .150. Just remember that the screen material alone doent determine the proper size spline to use but the channel size and screen material selection do.

Window frames will sometimes vary from side to side (width) and from top to bottom (height).  When measuring the inside dimensions of the frame in which the Roll-Away® screen will fit, be sure to measure the width of each frame at the top, middle and bottom.  For each height measurement measure at the left and right side of each frame opening - see diagram A to the right   Measure to the nearest 1/16".  When ordering always use the smallest of each dimension. 
Roll-Away Retractable Screen Door Measure Diagram
In diagram A the measurements you should record would be 21" x 48", as 21" is the smallest width and 48" is the smallest height.  A 1/16" deduction in width and height demensions are necessary for a proper fit.  Therefore, Retractable Window Screen would be manufactured to measure 20 15/16" x 47 15/16"

Installation Instructions for Series 2000

Materials List:

1) Roll-Away™ screen 
2) Two #6 flat head screws 
3) Two Roll-Away™ guides 
4) Four #4 flat head screws

1) Assemble guides to roller housing

Insert top of guides into the roller housing end-cap stems with the openings facing each other. (NOTE: the TOP of the guide is the end which is at least 5" from the nearest pre-punched latch stop. The BOTTOM end of the guide os 3/4" from the pre-punched latch stop.) Use the screw hole inside the end-cap stems to mark each guide for location of the installation screw.  Drill a 5/32" hole in each guide at the marked location.  If the guides need to be shortened trim from the TOP only!

2) Place assembled unit into window opening

Lift assembled unit by the guides and place into the window frame.  To allow proper operation of the window, the outside edge (window side) of the guides should be set back 1/8" from the window( standard draw bar R20 units only).  Make sure the Roll-Away™ is properly aligned and square inside the window frame.  With the unit in place, prior to fastening, test the operation by drawing the screen down to the sill.  Slowly retract the screen back into the housing and proceed with the installation.

3) Fasten guides at bottom

During step 2 the draw bar of your unit should have latched securely into the pre-punched stops at the bottom guides.  If it did not, you may need to slip a putty knife under each guide to insure proper clearence and fit into your window opening.  Once proper clearance has been established, fasten both guides to the window jamb at the bottom using #4 flat head screws provided.

4) Fasten housing to window frame

After checking for proper alignment, fasten the end-cap stem and the top of each guide to the window frame using the #6 flat head screws provided.  Check the proper operation of the unit to be sure it latches at the bottom.  Use additional #4 flat head screws provided to fasten the guides at the mid-point of height if needed.
