Screws for screen wicket

A home owner from Seattle, WA says:
I ordered the 33-071 screw to install your 56-090 Screen wicket.
The screws don't grab securely to the screen frame, and tend to come loose. Is there a recommended, better hardware option? Thanks!

Hello! Did you drill new holes or use the ones that were already there? If you made new holes for the 33-071, then I recommend a 7/64" drill bit for the most secure fit. If you used the previous holes, though, then move up to a #8 sized screw like our 33-072.
