Reusing Forever screen spline

A home owner from Oceanside, NY says:
I Have a EMCO Forever View Storm Door with a Flat Screen Spline which measures 13/32" wide. I was wondering 2 things 1)that when replacing the screen, can the spline be saved and reused? 2) is the tool 75-019 used for that application? Please advise

I have seen people have a difficult time reusing the rigid 55-109 screen spline. A lot of times it curls up and the locking edges don't hold down the screen wire. Also keep in mind this only works with regular fiberglass screen wire. It won't hold in aluminum or pet proof heavy fiberglass screen wire. As for the tool, you can use our 75-019 to install it, yes.
