You and your family can now enjoy all of the lifestyle advantages of an attractive, open-air screen porch with a perfect, no-sag fit that can be easily installed in hours. Developed and patented by a remodeling contractor who was convinced there had to be "a better way" to design, install and maintain screen porches, the revolutionary Screen Tight™ system has proven itself second-to-none among do-it-yourself homeowners, handymen and professional builders alike.

No More Staples

Conventional screening methods usually consist of staples, which secure the screen, and painted wood lattice, which serves as trim and covers the staples. The lattice is usually replaced each time the screen is repaired. With Screen Tight, the screen is rolled into place similar to the method used by window and door manufacturers. The external cap snaps onto the base component and evenly tightens the screen. When rescreening, the cap temporarily pops off, allowing a quick and efficient replacement.

A. Base attaches to a 2" x 4" x 4" wooden frame.
B. Screen spline rolls into the spline groove.
C. Cap snaps onto base.

Ideal for both new construction and remodeling projects, Screen Tight is cost effective and affordable.

Easy to Install

The unique Screen Tight system is easily adapted to most screen porches. The base component attaches to existing 2" x 2" and 4" x 4" framing with wood screws or roof tacks. Pre-punched holes on 8" centers result in a quick and consistent attachment. Both base and cap components can be cut with hand held shears. Once the base is attached, the screen is rolled into place with the "Roller Knife" or a standard screen spline roller. The excess screen is cut and removed. The cap snaps into the base completing the installation.

Large Openings

The Screen Tight system easily accommodates openings of up to 40 square feet with a secure, tight grip, giving even large openings a no-sag appearance. No mitering is needed. And screen-stretching mistakes can be corrected in no time simply by removing the spline and reattaching the screen.

All exposed materials for the Screen Tight system are manufactured from weather-proof, UV-resistant window grade vinyl. The base and cap components come in widths of 1.5" and 3.5" and are stocked in 8' lengths. The cap is made in longer lengths of 12' for 1.5" and 10' for 3.5". Pre-punched fastener slots are on 8" center. Caps are available in white, beige, gray and brown.

Screen Tight Installation Tips

Materials Needed

1. Screen Spline
2. Screen Tight Base and Cap
3. Rubber Mallet
4. Pruning Shears, Tin Snips or Vinyl Cutting Shears
5. Screening Tool - Spline Roller
6. Screw gun, Drill or Screwdriver
STEP 2: Roll screen into base.
Roll screen into base strip with appropriate spline and screening tool. For fiberglass screen use .175" diameter spline. For aluminum screen use .160" diameter spline. Start by rolling the screen into the top horizontal piece of base. After the top is rolled in, then roll the two sides and then the bottom horizontal piece of base. When screening the bottom, create screen tension by pulling down on the screen slightly. This will insure a "tight screen". A screening tool with a plastic wheel works best. Trim all excess screening with a razor knife or a Screen Tight Roller Knife. This will insure that no screen will interfere with the cap snapping onto the base.
STEP 1: Attach base to wood.
Cut base to fit over wood framing. Base strips are butted together and do not require any mitering or notching. Attach the base strip to wood framing using 1" wood or sheet rock screws. Make sure to put a screw in each slot. Fasteners should be snug, but not so tight that the base strip bends. Put a screw no more that 2 inches from the end of each base strip. Do not leave base strips exposed to direct sunlight.
STEP 3: Snap cap onto base.
The cap snaps onto the base strip and serves as the trim piece. Force from a mallet, hand or small block of wood will snap the cap into place. When attaching the 3.5" cap, the inside leg of the cap should be fitted under the base leg before applying pressure. Always attach cap from one end to the other. To remove cap, start at one end and using a screwdriver gently pry the cap from the base. After getting the cap started, it is easily removed by hand.
