Check out our video below. I think this should give you a good idea of what's necessary. The video features a different kind of pin, but the principle is the same.

Thank you for taking the time to send me the video. It was helpful, but due to the differences between the pins I purchased and the one in the video, I am left with some questions. Does the wide part of the bullet (near the point) go inside the hollow frame or outside? What size hole needs to be drilled into the outside of the frame to accommodate the pointed end of the bullet? Thanks!!

If you look at 70-219 nylon pin, you will see a 7/32" collar behind the pointed end; this is the size hole your what you want on the outside screen frame end. That will let the pin retract all the way in to let the screen clear through the window frame. You can use a step down drill bit like our 75-503 to drill the 1/8" hole through the screen frame, then use a 7/32" drill behind it to make the larger outside hole in the frame.
