Screen Spline Size

Has anyone put new screen in their screen windows and if so, where did you buy the spline? We'd like to replace all our screens with actual no see um screen.

Mary Iím sure if you pulled some spline out of one of your screens and took it to a glass shop they would sell you some. When it came to screen spline I think I gave away more then I ever sold. We used to stock 4 or 5 different diameters including a compressible foam spline.
Just an FYI if you donít have a roller a popsicle stick and patience works too.

If your trailer is only a year or two old I would think you could just pull out your existing spline and use it again.

Doug - I never thought of going to a glass shop for spline. I'll check that out. As for popsicle sticks - those I have plenty of



David - The thought crossed my mind of using the spline over again, but then the thought of my doing an oops and breaking/tearing it had me thinking I'd better have some on hand.

I'm afraid to take it out to see if it's vinyl or foam since I can't find a replacement for it. Looks and feels like vinyl.

That looks like vinyl - very easy to remove and reuse. I did that on the screens on a previous trailer when they were 10 years old and had no problem.

Mary I think David is right it does look like vinyl spline, if you have a pick tool or something thin and pointed try lifting up on of the ends and then just pull it out.

Thank you David and Doug -- I'll give a try as I'm sure I can reuse the spline as long as it's vinyl.

Window screening replacement product

When we were in Big Bend National Park a week or so ago, there were no-seeums by the hundreds which flew right in throught the window screens in our E21 at night. Would definitely like to replace the screening with something that prevents this. So, question is has anyone found a window screening product that stops no-seeums but does not restrict air flow or visibility too much?
