- Remove the spline (figure B) around the edge of the screening material. Pull out the screen and clean out the groove.
- Set frame on a flat surface (very important!) and make sure the corners are square.
- Unfold or unroll your Pet Screen. Cut out the screen so it is a couple of inches wider than the frame on each of the four sides. Lay it over the frame.
- Keep the corners from puckering by cutting each corner on a 45-degree angle (you will be snipping off a little triangle from each corner).
- To reinsert the spline, you will need a tool called a pizza cutter. One end is concave (figure C), the other convex.
- Set the screen over the frame and use the convex (bumped out) side to push the screen into the groove (figure D).
- Working one side at a time, insert the screen, then insert the spline, using the other, concave side of the roller to push the spline in the groove.
- Once all four sides are finished, go around the frame with a mat knife and cut off the excess screen just above the spline, being careful not to cut the spline itself.
