Solar screens

Hey everybody, I'm looking to make and install some solar screens myself. I've measured but am unsure if its right depending on where I drill for the screw tabs. The pictures show the two window types and close up of the frames. For the first window, I measured inside the frame from inside edge to inside edge. This one seems pretty straight forward, but do you normally take a standard amount off to give some play? For the next one I measured from the first crease or crack in the window frame to the next. This one I think is easy enough because you can see where there are already screws in the window frame. Should be safe? Sorry for the sideways pics! Thanks in advance for the help

Sorry, I'm not familiar with those--could you post a link to the instruction manual?
