Screen retainer clip attachment

A handy person from USA says:
I sent you a mail note a few minutes ago before I saw this method. I need to replace my window screen retainer clips. (70-026) I noticed that mine look like they were installed using a pop rivet. What is your suggestion for installing replacement retainer clips?

Note: A few years ago I was able to find out that you are the only company that sells the tilt window locks that fit our windows. My neighbor has a home in your parts and purchased some.I think I am going to put your company name and window locking device part number in our news letter. We all have the same windows.

We use a our 33-005 #44 3/8" long pop rivet. I recommend using a 1/8" drill bit. Sometimes you can drill out the old pop rivet or cut off the head. If not, re-drill the hole near the existing clip you now have. Also, thank you for the advertising!
