Re: fly screen

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @glendavester. It's wonderful that you've joined us, and many thanks for your question about replacing flyscreens.

 

If you can access the rubber spline that retains the flyscreen, then yes, you could replace the screens whilst the frames are in the window. However, their current vertical position will exacerbate what can already be a tricky job even when the frames are on a flat surface.

 

You might like to read through this helpful step-by-step guide: How to replace a flyscreen. If you believe you'd easily be able to follow these steps, then you'd quite possibly be able to complete the job in the frame.

 

Have you had a good crack at removing the frames? If you were to post some images illustrating how the frames are stuck in the window, our helpful members could have some solutions for their removal.

Re: fly screen

@glendavester can you take a photo of the top part of the screen, it looks like it is just sitting in the bottom channel.

 

The bottom corners are a work of art that may need some fixing before removing the spline.

Re: fly screen

Hi @glendavester,

 

@Brad might be thinking the same, but I'd suggest the removal sequence would be to slide the frame upwards, and then, once the bottom rail has cleared the bottom channel, pull it out towards you. Holding onto the tab in the centre of the frame should make it easier.
