Removal Guide

This guide will explain how to remove a FlexScreen from a window. Begin by opening or tilting both sashes of your window toward the inside of the house to expose the window screen track.

  1. Gently press the palm of your hand in the center of the FlexScreen until the sides of the FlexScreen bend inward. With your free hand, grab one side of the FlexScreen frame along with some screen cloth. Remove your palm from the center of the FlexScreen and with your other hand still holding on to the frame and screen cloth pull slightly outwards allowing you to grab the opposite frame with your free hand.

  2. With a hand on each side of the FlexScreen, squeeze inwards about 4" to 6".
