Which leaf spring 70-011 or 70-097

A handy person from Middletown, DE says:
For leaf spring 70-097, the inside length is (app) 3 1/16". I need to purchase springs for 16 window screens. There are no have pull tabs on my screens. For my screens, the distance between the insert squares is 3 5/32", and the insert square dimensions are 5/32" and 3/16", close to those indicated on the 70-097 specifications. Would 70-097 be the best spring to order?.

thank you.

I just wanted to make sure I have your measurements clear. Is this what your spring installation holes look like?

I believe the 70-097 should work for you.

I have a similar question to the above. The curve of my existing clip looks more like 70-011 but the insert piece curves in more like 70-097. The spread is 3'' to the beginning of each hole. The holes are 3/16'' wide and the width of the curved inset at each end is 2/16''. Which clip is better for me?

Hey thanks for posting. If your spring has curved ends like our 70-097, then I think there's a good chance it was curved the same way, as well, and that it has since just been bent out of shape. I think it might be a good place to start, though there is a chance they both could work.

If you're making new screens, you could also consider our 70-030, which just slips into the corner. No drilling is necessary.
