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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYforless Great item that is affordable!
Item performed as expected! Very ergonomic and robust. This was my first time using the screen tight system and I very pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jonn newbie door screen replacement
I used charcoal color fiberglass screen material--the material is probably fine, but first time users should be cautious.
I attempted first to install the screen in the door screen frame on the floor without a roller knife...Trying to tuck the gasket in point by point was tedious, uneven, and frustrating. With a newly purchased roller knife, it was easier to secure the screen more uniformly.
Unfortunately, I had the screen too tight and the frame was bowed inward in the middle, so it would not fit the wood door. I left the top and bottom secure and loosened the long sides. To hold the frame in its proper shape, we mounted it backwards on the door and tried securing the screen with the gasket (again) using the roller knife while the screen frame was held in the proper shape (and vertically) by its attachment to the door frame.
My novice attempts to press the gasket in with the roller knife resulted in an inch-or-so long tear in the screen at the inside right edge by the gasket channel, so I loosened both side gaskets and moved the tear outward and secured the right side again. Unfortunately, there was another small tear at opposite side bottom left. I did not want to risk making it worse, so I finally secured the screen all along the channel in the frame. The small tear was inside but the large tear was outside and could be cut away.. The cutter portion of the roller knife helped with removal of excess material. At one time I had knocked the blade back into the handle without realizing it. After removing and replacing the screen frame on the door properly (with the gasket side hidden against door), the outside margin of screen material was not hidden, so a utility knife trim of the excess screen material is needed to finish the job. (...and perhaps some near-invisible thread to mend the small tear.)
