    Do You Need a Screen Kit to Replace a Screen Frame?

    Whether a screen kit is needed to replace a window screen frame depends on the following conditions:

    Existing frame is damaged, and screen material is in good condition.

    If the existing frame is in good condition, and you only need to replace a damaged frame without altering the screen fabric, a screen kit may not be necessary. In this case, you might only need the specific replacement frame, ensuring it matches the dimensions and specifications of the old screen.

    Both frame and screen materials need replacement.

    If the frame and screen mesh are damaged, then you should take advantage of a screen kit. A screen kit typically includes all the necessary components, such as frame pieces, screen material, spline, and hardware, for building a new replacement screen.

    What Tools Are Necessary For Replacing Window Screen Frames

    To assemble a new window screen frame, you may need the following tools:

    1. Spline Tool:
      • The spline tool is used to press the spline (rubber tubing) into the groove around the frame, securing the screen material in place. It helps ensure a tight fit.
    2. Plastic Corners:
      • Plastic external corners are typically used to join the frame pieces at the corners, providing stability and structure to the frame. They are essential for maintaining the square shape of the screen.
    3. Metal Leaf Springs:
      • Metal leaf springs are used to provide tension to the screen material. They help keep the screen fabric taut and prevent sagging.
    4. Plastic Pull Tabs:
      • Plastic pull tabs are used to facilitate the removal of the screen material if needed. They are inserted into the spline groove and provide a grip for pulling out the spline during repairs or replacements.
    5. Vinyl Spline:
      • The vinyl spline is a flexible rubber tubing that is pressed into the groove of the frame using the spline tool. It holds the screen material securely in place.


    1. Can you DIY a screen frame replacement?

    Yes, you can either use a screen kit or buy the components needed to replace the frame of your window screen.

    2. Are the screen frames suitable for different window types?

    Yes, our screen frames are designed to be versatile and can be used for various window types, including aluminum windows.

    3. Does a higher gauge size result in a stronger screen frame?

    Yes, a larger gauge generally means a thicker and sturdier frame, enhancing strength and durability.

Screens for Outdoor Bird Enclosure
Review by
Your prices were reasonable and the products came exactly as described, shipped very quickly. I appreciate your products and the excellent customer service, including the very helpful gentleman on the phone who patiently answered all my questions. I needed the screen frame parts to build clear vinyl shutters to winterize a large outdoor bird enclosure. My friend helped me get them built and installed on hinges, so they can swing down and open up the air flow in good weather. We considered wood and other framing materials, but aluminum was the lightest but still strong, weather resistant, non-warping and non-fading option. The pre-cut frame pieces and easy click-on corners made putting the frames together a snap. We used slightly smaller sized rubber spline since we were installing thick clear marine vinyl instead of window screen in the frames.
