The Good: The unit is easily disassembled and the knife blade design cuts easily through screen. The Bad: Blade fell out after 1" of cutting. Disassembled and reinstalled the blade, but the plastic housing is warped so there's no way to hold it in place other than manually gripping the two halves of plastic right by the blade. The roller design was difficult to get leverage on and tore through the fiberglass screen while pushing in the new spline. Would not advise using this product with fiberglass screen.

    I had several screens to replace and thought I would try replacing them myself. There were several rollers available but I went for this one thinking the knife would be a handy addition. The roller part works fine, no issues there. The handle is easy to grip and get enough pressure with. However, the hook knife part of this tool is not a good design. The knife comes loose very easily. It can be accessed with a screwdriver but if you tighten it to try and keep the knife held in place, the knife won’t retract very easily. I would suggest the manufacturer rethink the design to allow for the knife to be retained in the holder while simultaneously being able to extend or retract it with ease.

    If you are going to use this with flat spline, then you will HATE this roller. The roller wheel is too wide, I took this pos back and went back to the cheaper black roller which has the thinner roller. Also, because there is more heft and leverage offered by this larger roller, when working to force the spline in to stay, it gets stuck in the groove while damaging your screen. I"m no trained pro, but have a lot easier time with the less expensive roller. Screen project: Pfifer BetterVue screen on lowers, SuperSolar on top. The SuperSolar is very difficult to work with (almost like canvas). I"m sure it will look and function beautifully upon completion.

      The best screen spline tool for flat spline...
      I used this tool to replace all the screens in our (smallish) lanai. We don't have a pool, so there's no tall pool cage. My advice is: if you do have a pool cage, call a professional screen installer. I understand they use scaffolding to get up to the highest elevations. My project was done DYI with a step stool and a 6 foot ladder. This tool seems designed specifically for flat spline. The wheel is made of plastic, and precisely matches the width of the channel opening, and it won't accidently slice the screen as you press the spline into the channel. One minor caveat: I found out (the hard way) that the tool's three screw/nut fasteners were not snugged down at the the factory. One set dropped onto the pavers. Fortunately, I found 'em. Word to the wise: Tighten all three screws down firmly first thing after you extract the tool from its blister package. You'll thank me. One other thing: This was my first time working with flat spline. My best advice is to search Youtube for primers on the distinction between traditional round screen spline (comes in a variety of diameters) and flat spline (which comes in only one size and multiple lengths: 30, 100, and 300 feet at Home Depot.) Spoiler alert: the flat spline will only install easily into structural aluminum beams the correct way. It grabs into two separate channels, one deeper than the other. The result is spline that grips screen fabric far more tenaciously than the older, round variety. That's a nice characteristic to have in a hurricane. Just don't think your screens will shrug off a CAT4/5 hurricane. In fact, hurricane veterans strongly suggest you slice your screens open to save the aluminum framing from windborne destruction. I have a friend in a nearby community who lost his entire pool cage to Hurricane Irma in 2017. Let your homeowner's insurance adjuster sort it out. Good luck! I saved a ton of money by re-screening our lanai myself. I'd do it again if the need arises.

      It worked excellent. I did every screen in the house with it. House looks much better without the torn screens.

            The roller did a good job, but the attached knife didn't work very well at all. I had to use one of my xacto knives to cut the screen. Looks like a professional did it!
