window screen installation hardware

To install a window screen, you will need the following hardware:

  • Screen frame: This is the frame that holds the screen material in place. The frame is usually made of aluminum or vinyl and comes in standard sizes that fit most windows.
  • Screen material: This is the actual screen that goes in the frame. It is typically made of fiberglass or aluminum wire mesh and comes in rolls that you can cut to size.
  • Spline: This is a thin, rubber cord that is used to hold the screen material in place within the frame.
  • Spline tool: This is a special tool that is used to press the spline into the groove around the perimeter of the screen frame.
  • Corner keys: These are small, triangular pieces of metal that are used to hold the screen frame together at the corners.
  • Screws or nails: These are used to attach the screen frame to the window frame.

You will also need a measuring tape and a pair of scissors or a utility knife to cut the screen material to size.
