How to fix a torn flyscreen?

Hey guys, 

 

My flyscreen has ripped and a quick fix to help reattach the screen to the frame would be great!

 

Cheers,

Re: How to fix a torn flyscreen?

I had the same issue with our flyscreen recently after our overly-enthusiastic beagle jumped straight through it.

 

After attempting to fix the door with some bespoke, crude tools (namely the blunt end of a butter knife) I decided to purchase one of the kits in this video, since it was a fraction of the $110+ a professional quoted to fix the door.   The little roller tool worked a treat and my screen door is back to new. Simples.

Yeah my cat's actually the culprit!

 

I'll have to look into purchasing this kit and have a word with my cat when I get home.
