Answer: 
Separately and must be screwed in precisely (perpendicular and to the right depth) otherwise you cant pound the frame over the screw head or it will be loose. Its actually very finicky in how the screws must be done. Thats the hard part

Answer: 
Not included, and I would not advise a substitute because of the way the product is designed. The screw job must be perfect for the track to grab tight as it is pounded down to bite the screw heads. You will destroy the track if you try to pull it up to fix a screw head that wasn't quite right.

Answer: 
No, screws aren't included with the Mini Track because each job size is completely different and no two customer's will need the same quantities. The Mini Track System is composed of 5 necessary items: 3/4" x 3/4" x 8 Ft Mini Track Channel, Mini Track Clip Screws (go every 10 inches of track), Roll of screen (depends on job size), and Mini Track Spline. If you need assistance you can call us anytime.

Answer: 
The screw/clips are not included with the mini track, but you would never know that with their documentation and advertisement of a "SYSTEM". The cost is about 27 cents per screw and you need about 14 per track, so you need to add just under $4 more cost to each track.

Answer: 
Yes absolutely. Unless you want to use separate pieces of spline for the each piece of track in the frame. If you do this, you will have a small piece of un-splined screening sitting just outside on the frame in each corner where the screen has no channel for spline to get to the next piece of the frame.

Answer: 
Mitered corners along the outer frame should not interfere with the clips because they run along the sides with the nearest clip to the corner about three inches away. You cannot miter the center cross bars, either vertical or horizontal, because they clip at the ends

Answer: 
Not sure you can miter corners and still be able to click the pieces onto the screw heads. The first one is no problem bur the last one would be a nightmare I would think. I could be mistaken, I'm ordering this system and haven't used it before, but I thought miter ing the corners would look better too, til I thought about the whole click on thing

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not easy to install, but gives a good result Not easy to push the spline into the tracks with the Screentight tool, so be careful you don't come out of the track and end up ripping the screen. Also, the installation of the screws that hold the track to the frame requires being pretty careful not to overtighten, or the track won't "catch" when you drive it on over the screw heads. I used a 4" section of track to check each screw for the proper tightness. Slide the end of the short section under the screw head. It shouldn't be so loose that it rattles, but it shouldn't be hard to slide either. When driving the track on, make sure the point of the track that you are going to hit with the rubber mallet is centered over the screw head you are trying to fasten to, and center the blow of the rubber mallet over the screw. It usually only takes a single hit to get each screwhead to capture. July 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nice idea, but almost impossible to install I bought enough of this product to do a single opening on a screened porch project. The installation of the aluminum track with the "clips" (special screws) was pretty easy and straightforward. However, things got very difficult when it came to trying to install screen material once the track was in place. A tremendous amount of force is required to push the spline into the track *with screen* - this is hard enough if you are doing it on a flat surface and able to push straight down with all you body weight. Trying to do it on a vertical surface (sometimes from a ladder) was impossible for me... it took me about 20 minutes of exhausting effort to get about 1" of spline in. I was using the "square" spline the manufacturer recommends, as well as their spline tool. Luckily, HD has a great return policy. May 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not so Great I have hired out my services and feel more qualified than most DYI's but this product did not live up to the install video. Bad design, hard to install, almost impossible to keep from damaging the track when rubber mallet is used to pound down track over screw heads that must be screwed in perfectly without any margin for error. Track will not uninstall and re-install without damage to track. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for an elevated installation I had a handyman install this on 8 sides of an elevated gazebo, screens on top and bottom halves of openings. So I can't comment on installation but this was perfect for my 15 foot high elevated install because it can all be done from the interior and not struggling with big screening placement on a ladder. I can put in new screens if anything is damaged, without a ladder. It looks fantastic too. June 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally This productis great Once you get the hang of installing. Great for large window areas May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks like it was done by a professional This product was used to replace 200 square feet of screen on a screened porch at our mountain cabin. There is a slight learning curve when you begin installation. Follow the instructions in the Home Depot video closely and you will have no problems. I found that it was helpful to use a piece of 1" x 2" scrap lumber that was about 12" long placed along the mini track to tap it into place...it kept the channel from being dented by the rubber mallet and the spline channel from being bent. You will need to purchase the screw clips separately. I wish I had known about this product when the porch was originally installed! July 1, 2014
