Thank you for your patience in this matter. Our new 80-060
Pella Screen Hanger Screw is now online and available for you to view!
Now, we have assembled a brief guide to help you install these. Please refer to the following instructions.
For this project, you will need a #2 bit Phillips-head screwdriver and a narrow tip flat-head screwdriver.
First, remove the strings from the pile insect stripping on your screen door. Please note that if these strings are not removed for this step, the door will not slide properly.
Next, angle the top of the screen toward the door frame. You'll then want to slide the screen carrier away from the lock jamb with one hand while aligning the screw at the rear stile with the other. Start both screws approximately two turns.
Now you'll want to push the bottom of the scren door over the sill frame track. The bottom leaf is stiff, but it will bend enough to allow the screen door to slide into place. Make sure that the bottom leaf is fully inserted into the groove of the sill.
Adjust the two hanger screws so that the screen meets the lock jamb squarely. Please note that you do not over-tighten, or the screen will not slide properly. We recommend approximately 3/16" clearance between the sill and the screen.
If the screen door does not self-close, or if it closes with too much force, simply adjust the tension on the return spring. Locate the tension adjuster in the end of the screen track, and then, using a flat-head screwdriver, turn the adjuster clockwise to increase the tension. Push in and turn the adjuster counter-clockwise to decrease the tension.
