Installing the 70-216 Pella clip

A quick learner from Michigan says:
Are there any instructions for installing these clips? The ones I have WILL NOT close flat, and fall out of the screen. It seems as if there should be a notch or indentation within the scrren frame into which these should be secured.

Thanks for your patience in this matter! Replacing these clips is fairly simple. To remove the screen clip, first pull it out enough so that the small barb at the top is out of the channel. Then, lift up on the clip until the "V" catch, which can be located on the bottom of the clip, clears the channel as well. Finally, tilt the clip sideways until it releases, after which it can be removes.

To install the new clip, simply insert the tab into the appropriate slot on the screen channel, then reverse the steps listed above; that is, rotate the clip towards the channel, push in the "V" catch, then the barb at the top.
