window screens how to remove and put back


Hi and welcome to the forum.

Can you provide a picture or two? Most of them slide UP a little and then push out, or have pull-knobs to release them.

Why don't you just contact the manufacturer? Their website should have contact info, maybe even instructions.

window screens how to remove and put back


from the outside look at the corners of the screen frames,on one side or the other you will see a raised plastic''nub''from the inside push on the lower side screen frame without the ''nubs'' in with your finger tips until the side with the ''nubs'' releases from the screen channel then push out


its alittle awkward and kinda hard to explain,but its fairly easy once you do it a few times

Some screens are made with compression springs on one side. Try pushing the screen to one side and see if it moves far enough for the other side to come out of it's track. Installing is the reverse. Put the spring side in the track then compress the spring to insert the other side.
