Replacing flyscreen

If your dog, cat or even the kids keep tearing holes in your flyscreen doors, try a pet proof flyscreen!

Best part is that you can do it yourself!

It does help to have two people though especially if you’ve never done it before.

To replace it, remove the old screen and the rubber. If the rubber is worn and brittle, replace it.  Lay the frame on a flat level surface.

Place the screen on the frame nice and square. You’ll need at least 50mm excess of screen around the entire frame. Start at one corner, using a flyscreen roller and push the rubber in place.

Work your way around, taking your time.  Keep tension on the screen but not too tight!

Cut off the excess with a box knife and you’re done!
