replacing bug flaps on screens

A quick learner from Lombard IL says:
I tried all of the usual retail locations to find replacemnet bug flaps. Fortunately I found your company on the internet. I have received the materials and am trying to find an easier way to install the bug flap and I was hoping the experts could give me some guidance.

Thanks for posting! I hope I can help you out.

Now, if you didn't already re-screen, you can knock the corner of the screen out slightly--just enough not to break the corner--and twist the metal just enough to slide the bug flap in the groove. If the screens are already screened, then just widen out the groove a little with a slotted screw driver to slide in the weatherstripping. When done, simply squeeze it closed with a pair of pliers.
