Screen Patch Repair Kit

P137553b

Once, when I had some time on my hands and found myself doing something close to nothing, but different than the day before, I decided to fix a hole in my screen door.

I got out my small surgical forceps and pointed tweezers and spent a happy hour or so aligning, straightening and flattening the messed up wire grid, such that after I'd finished I couldn't see the repair unless I got up real close to it.

You may not feel the same way about this sort of thing being the highest and best possible use of your time.

I understand, which is why I present to you this alternative.

From the website:

    Screen Patch Repair Kit

    Skip the hardware store — these peel-and-stick patches fix screens in seconds, keeping bugs out!

    Just cut to fit, peel off self-stick backing, press on hole and rub, for quick repair of holes and tears.

    Transparent mesh PVC blends into screen.

    Kit includes eight 6-1/4"L x 4-7/8"W patches.

$5.99.

You can buy them online at www.screenpatch.com and www.screenrepairpatch.com - you can buy screen repair kits at www.screenrepairkits.com if you want to put together the entire screen, but for this you'll need to know how to roll the screen and shouldn't be done unless you're pretty handy. Otherwise, take your screen to a hardware store or call and screen repair tech to do it and save yourself the frustration and the learning curve.

Why not just replace the whole screen? We've had to do this on all the windows/doors in the house we're renovating. It only takes a few minutes per screen, which is why we've taken a year to do about half of them :-)
