Select a Screen Frame
If you have an existing frame, you'll need to replace the spline too. If you don't have an existing screen frame, you'll need to build a new one.
A flexible cord, called spline, holds the screen in place when rolled into the groove (channel) of the screen frame with a screen tool. It's available in gray and black. Black is used with charcoal fiberglass and aluminum. Gray is used with bright aluminum and gray fiberglass. The best way to ensure correct spline sizing is to bring a sample of your old spline and match it.
For a firmer hold, purchase spline in the next-largest diameter. If you purchase spline that's slightly too large, simply hold one end and pull gently to stretch the spline thinner as you roll it into the channel. The spline will return to its original shape for greater holding power.
