Problem finding correct spline

by Karen

I removed old spline (flat type) from a 1/8 inch channel. I am using regular aluminum screening. Where do I find the correct size and type of spline?

There are two very common sizes stocked by just about every home depot and other hardware stores

They are 0.160" and 0.180" diameter black polyfoam spline. 0.160" diameter should work fine in your application.

Every once in a while I run across a patio screen door using 0.125 inch diameter spline but these are hard to roll without ripping the aluminum screen cloth.

You need a narrow roller and gently pre-crease the material down into the channel
