I was wondering where I can get "ramhorn" tension springs for some window
screens that I intend to construct from make-your-own-windowscreen stuff
available from Lowe's or Home Depot. I need to make a few screens from
scratch that match my existing screens. The problem is that the stuff sold
to diy'ers is intended to fit inside the innermost channel of the window
with springs that mount on top of the window screen. All my other screens
fit on the outermost channel with ramhorn springs that hold the screen frame
against the outside of the window frame. I can drill holes in the frames to
accommodate the spring ends - I just need to find out where to get them.
I am trying to avoid the expense of replacing ALL of my window screens to
get them all to look the same.
Here is a website that shows a ramhorn spring:
Any help appreciated!
