Reading the manual it sounds like the left? The ordering number is different too ? Pat

The new screen door is installed! We are happy - it did take looking at both the enclosed instructions as well as viewing the online instructions for Jerry to feel comfortable with the job:-) We have saved the old cartridge, but not entirely sure how a "fix" might work for "down the road".
Until (or if ever) needed...the old is in storage and the new is onboard!
We are off to Wenatchee next week...and we've heard it is mosquito season there.

Can you provide a link to the online instructions ?

It is at http://seikiscreensystems.com/. On the home page you will see a listing of products on the left side - click on "Vista Plus Screen". When you get to that page, you need to scroll down toward the bottom until you see "Download Manual Instructions" on the left side. Jerry said the most challenging part of the whole project was finding the correct two-sided tape to replace what was used originally for installation of the framing on the ceiling part (thin, with a fabric component and having good tensile strength). He used outdoor, two-sided rug tape and it worked:-)

Question for anyone who has had to replace the screen on their 21. I got my Seiki replacement cartridge and started looking at the instructions. It calls for removing top rail and it appears there should be some screws. However, my 21 screen top rail doesn't have any screws as it is up against a very thin (1/4") strip of plastic. Is the top rail loose and will it come down after you remove the side rail?

Thanks!

Sorry.... should have just read Rowdy II's post in more detail. Double sided tape is the answer I was looking for.

Thanks.

Great! I'm glad it helped. I was having a hard time remembering how all the pieces had finally come back together, without the door apart on the bench. :-)

Got the replacement screen in. Couple of pointers for those who may attempt the same:
- The tension spring (bottom one) needs quite a few turns.
- My door was binding at the top about halfway when closing. Seems like top support rail that ETI installs was bowed down in the middle. Needed to adjust a couple of guides (one inside and one outside the screen) and works fine.

I dry brushed on some small dragonfly stencils as a "screen saver" as others suggested. Hopefully, it will keep friends and family from walking into the "stealth" screen!

Looks good Stefan. Might have to steal the dragonfly idea.
