I'm replacing screens, any tips to help make them tighter?


(**mods, sorry if this is the wrong subforum!)

I've got my roll of screen and my mending rubber rope thing, and have done a few windows so far.

The first one came out very tight/perfect, but the second two were a little loose. I didn't make any changes to my technique on purpose.

Any tips to keep them tight?

Do the top first then the right side if your right handed, then the left and pull snug when placing the spline, then the bottom.
If you can keep an eye on the lines and keep them straight it will help.
Practice.

KILLER!!! Thanks man! My first one came out awesome, and I was so psyched, but the next couple came out way loose, and I got pretty upset. Hopefully that'll solve my problem!
