Replacement flat spline for Emco full view storm/screen door

A home owner from Greer, SC says:
I purchased an Emco storm/screen door from Home Depot several years ago and recently noticed that the screen had several holes in it. I removed the "flat spline" and screen and then went to my friendly nearby Home Depot to purchase replacement screening and spline - did not stock. The screen opening is 25 1/2" X 74". I could not find a model number on door but the door has a separate screen insert frame and glass insert frame and is a full view door.

Armed with this information, can you help me source the proper "spline"?

Our 55-109 might be what you're looking for. Watch the video below for further information.

Donna, thanks for the response. Does Emco only use the one width spline? The one that I have is approx 7/16 wide. After watching the video I wasn't sure if the flat side goes against the frame. When I removed it from my frame it appeared to be the other way around.

Can I order the required screen and spline from SWISCO and how much would the package cost?

The video shows the flat side down on the screen. You need to catch the lip in the screen frame to secure the screening material. If you install it flat side up and the screen material holds in to your liking, then that would be okay, as well. If you are not sure if this is the correct spline then send us a photo of your spline and the frame that it is going into and we can work from there.
