Plastic window screen corners


I have a trailer in the country that needs a few window screens replaced. I pulled them out but noticed the corners had plastic inserts that cracked. The big chain hardware stores had replacements for these in 5/16 and 7/16 but mine are smaller than this. Any suggestions?

Can you sand down the new ones to fit yours?

No. Not only are the inserts too big but the whole corner is too big. Sanding it would only make it look dorky and not worth the effort. I would have to do about 30 or more of these things.

The only option may be to just get new screens.
