1. Cut the base strips to fit the vertical framing members. Attach the base to the framing members with 1" screws. Each slot on the base holds one screw. Don't install the screws so tightly that they deform the base.

2. Cut base strips to fit the horizontal-framing members and attach them. The horizontal base should butt to the edges of the vertical base.

3. Have a helper stretch the screen taut over the opening. Don't stretch the screen so tightly that it is deformed.

4. Use the concave wheel of the screening tool to begin installing the spline into the channel on the base. Once you have 6" to 12" of the screen started, use the convex wheel to push the spline securely into the channel. Cut off the excess screen and throw it away. Continue until all of the screening is installed.

5. Cut the cap pieces to fit the vertical base pieces and install them. Use a rubber mallet to snap the cap into the base. Then cut and install the horizontal cap pieces.
