SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

plastic tabs that clip the screen to the window frame

A home owner from Ellwood City, PA 16117 says:
Several of the clear plastic tabs (each has a hole with a tiny screw in it so that it can be attached to the bottom of the screen) on our Patriot window screens have broken. These plastic tabs clamp the screen to the window to hold it in. How can I obtain replacements?

Our home is a Ryan home (Sumner model) that we built through the Ryan Owner/Builder program.

Can I see a few pictures of the clip in question? That will help us locate a good replacement for you.

You asked me to send pictures of the screen clips in question. Here is one showing how they are breaking. Also attached is a picture of one attached to the frame of a screen.
Thanks,

Thank you for these images, Jane. They're perfect. Please bear with us a little longer as we investigate a possible replacement.

I would start by looking at our 70-208. This looks pretty similar to me, but compare it to what you have and let me know what you think.

Your 70-208 looks like it will work. I ordered a few along with the screws and will give them a try.
Thanks,
Jane
