Installation Steps

Attach CLIPS to Porch Frame
Attach SCREW/CLIPS to Porch Frame
#1 Measure, pre-mark, and pre-drill screw/clip locations on the frame with a level ruler or string to keep the screw/clips aligned at desired location on the frame for proper channel installation. Place screw/clips 2" from the corners and every 8" - 10" evenly spaced apart. Do not overtighten. (Do not exceed a maximum of 25 square feet per screened in area.)
Attach MINI Track CHANNEL to CLIPS
Roll SCREEN into MINI Track CHANNEL
Attach MINItrack™ CHANNEL to SCREW/CLIPS
#2Now MINItrack Channel pieces should be cut to desired lengths. Install the left & right channel vertical's by just "snapping" them over clips directly attached to the frame using a rubber mallet.

Next, install both the top and bottom MINItrack channel horizontal's (See A Diagrams for details)

#4Simply trim off the excess screen mesh and you're done!
