This spline roller and cutting knife are really nice. I paid approximately five dollars more for it than the other one. I am very glad I did. I was replacing the cheap screens with pet resistant screens since my 70lb puppy can't seemed to keep his paws off of the screening when birds and squirrels are in residence. That screening is exceptionally thick compared to the other. To compound matters my screen cannot be laid flat for the installation it must be installed vertically. This roller was ergonomic enough to get a good grip and really put my back into it. The wheel has a snug fit so no wobbling or bouncing out of the groove. The blade did very well on the cheap stuff but a word of advice, if you're going with a thick pet resistant screen just spring for the husky or stanley box cutter style blade and decrease your spline diameter a little. This blade is razor sharp for standard but not good enough for the tough stuff.

I purchased this tool along with the screen and spline, it works very well. Fits your hand good easy to roll in the spline with it, the cutting tool on the other end from the wheel is really handy.

Hook knife worked well enough. Wheel was too wide for my spline width

I have used this to install screen all around my house. I'm using 0.160 spline and it works great. The large handle is very helpful when you need to push a little harder.

This roller knife is essential when installing the Screen Tight system.

After a struggle and getting nowhere, I lifted one side of the screen I was attempting to install and tried to put the roller in the track without screen fighting me... and the roller didn't fit! If you're installing a .140 or larger spline, this tool might work, but it absolutely cannot work with a track that requires a very common .125 spline. You would think they might mention that on the package... but they don't. This one will be returned tomorrow.

I bought this along with the Screen Tight 1.5" track and used it with a fiberglass screen and .175" diameter spline. Using the tool I was able to install the screen by myself, the cutting tool on the end was very useful.
