What you need:

  • Screen
  • Screwdriver
  • Cutter 

How-to: 

  • Steady the frame with one hand and remove the rubber guide to take the screen out.
  • Remove the screen by pushing it from below until it pops out.
  • With a two-inch allowance all around, put the new screen on top of the frame.
  • Outline the rubber onto the frame. With a screwdriver, push it and the screen into the canal of the frame.
  • Use a cutter to cut the excess screen.
