Helpful Tips for Using Phifer's
Patch Repair Kit:
Each Patch Repair Kit comes with 2” x 2” (5.1 x 5.1 cm) patches of aluminum screen, with small hooks at the edges of each patch.
Simply place the patch over the small area of the screen itself and gently bend the hooks back onto the existing weave of your screen.
For a cleaner look, use a utility knife to cut away ragged areas of your screen that would otherwise overlap with the patch.
For added stability, you can dab a bit of glue or bonding agent onto the tiny hooks before securing and bending them onto your existing screen. This will ensure your patch stays in place, giving your screen a more seamless look.
