Retrofit into window screen

A quick learner from Canada says:
My window screens are setup with the 4 plastic tabs that are always breaking. How can I retrofit this top tension and possibly a leaf spring into the frame of the screen ?

I was thinking a drill and a rivet set might be easiest but was curious as to what you would recommend.

Many thanks !

I'm not sure if we can help with this. You might have to keep the clips you're already using. You have large gaps at the top and bottom of your screen between the track on your window. You could try to install something like our 70-194 leaf spring on one end, and either our 70-008, 70-009 or 70-195 on the other end, but I do not know if that will work. See what you think.
