Excellent Product But Use 0.160 Spline
Used this product to install replacement screens for a screen room. Very happy with the track system, but the manufacturer's recommended square spline was too thick for the screen material I was using. After fighting for hours to make the spline work, I ran out for some 0.160 round spline which worked perfectly.
