SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

knife latch

A home owner from Gatlinburg, TN says:
I am having new screens made for every window in the house and the closest match to the existing clip is your 70-143, but ouch! that's a huge investment in clips. Since I am starting from scratch, can I use one of the more economical pella clips and if so, which of your available clips would fit in the screen strike (the plastic bit in the frame that accepts the clip)? I am fine with going off brand (Anderson butterfly clip, maybe?) as long as the little knife part that fits into the screen strike is the same profile.

If you are making completely new generic type screens, then you may want to consider our 70-187 butterfly screen clips. Also be sure to watch the video below, it may be of some help.
