the Roll-Away™ screen on the floor or other flat surface. Insert
top of guides into the roller housing end-cap stems with the openings
facing each other. (NOTE: the TOP of the guide has a hole located
1 3/4" from the end. The hole in the guide will now line up with
the bottom hole of the end-cap stem.) Insert the right-hand

bend end-cap stems while installing unit, as excessive stress could
cause damage. To allow proper operation of the window, the outside
edge (window side) of the guides should be set back 1/8" from the
window( standard draw bar R20 units only). Make sure the
Roll-Away™ is properly aligned and square inside the window frame.
With the unit in place, prior to fastening, test the operation by
drawing the screen down to within 3" of the sill, but do not engage
the bottom guide locks. Slowly retract the screen back into
the housing and proceed with the installation.

guide to the window frame using the #6 flat head screws provided.
4) Fasten guide

proper alignment by bringing down the screen drawbar and engaging
the guide locks. If the Roll-Away™ screen does not roll easily, shimming
using foam double-sided tape or thin shimstock may be necessary
to make the rollaway unit operate properly. Adjust the guide
locks to the very bottom of the left-hand and right-hand sill.
Using the 1/8" drill bit, drill a hole through the bottom elongated
hole of the guide lock at the center line and through the guide.
(Note: Do not penetrate the guide into the wood or metal of the
window jamb, as the screw will not hold.) After adjusting
the guide lock down to the bottom of the sill, install the #6 Phillips
pan head screws provided. Usa additional screws provided to
fasten the guides at the midpoint of height if needed.
