Product Enhancement: Pre-Assembled Wheel Brackets…

Pre-assembled wheel brackets are coming soon. This will save you time and money.

Pre-Assembled Brackets

At Lifestyle Screens we are constantly seeking ways to simplify the installation process for our dealers. Time is money. The less time you spend on the job, the more screens you can install per day.

In the Lifestyle Screens hardware box you will soon find the wheel brackets pre-assembled with the rollers, bushings, pushnuts, cable  pins and E-clips all pre-installed. This will not only cut your installation time even further,  but it will also eliminate the possibility that the wheel brackets are installed incorrectly. With the rollers pre-installed there is only one possible way for each wheel bracket to be affixed to the frame. Additionally, this reduces the number of loose parts that you have to handle in the installation.

As you are also aware, we have developed a patented screen clipping system and clips that cut the time it takes to screen the bays. Our dealers are so pleased with this process that we feel compelled to repeat it here:

Installation Tip: What is the Best Tool to Use for Screening?

Frequently, we are asked: What is the best tool to use for screening the Lifestyle garage screen?
We prefer to use the $2.99 plastic spline rolling tools available at all of the big box and most local hardware stores. The roller discs should be plastic, as these are less likely to cut the fiberglass screen material if you accidentally press too hard.  Typically, there are 2 roller discs on each end of the spline rolling tool. One roller disk will have a concave grooved edge. The other roller disc will have a convex rounded edge.

Remember, for our application, always roll in the spline using the roller disc with the grooved edge by placing the groove over the exposed edge of the spline and rolling.
FYI, the other roller disc at the opposite end with the rounded edge is for screening window frames.

Q:
How many of you have been installing the magnets on the top horizontal only to have a screw turn on you and loosen from the nut? If you have had this happen to you, you are not alone.
A:
To facilitate this part of the installation, place a finger over the top of each of the two screws as you slide the magnet into place as shown in the picture.

Installation Tip: Set Up, Sawhorses and Work-table are Key

A speedy installation of the Lifestye garage screen system begins with your set-up. We recommend that you have a set of four sawhorses and a lightweight folding table to work from. As many of you have seen at installation training, these items really do help make the installation easier and faster. Notice in the installation video below how the installer lays out the contents of the 3 boxes on a 2nd optional table for easier accessibility. Alternatively, these larger components may be laid out on the cartons folded open flat at the side of the driveway. Also notice that the hardware and fasteners are laid out on the table situated inside and conveniently at the back of the garage. One bag is opened at a time and the contents are used up before the next bag of fasteners is opened. Notice that the sawhorses make building the frame and installing the screen fabric/mesh easy on the hands and back. The tables (at least one) and four sawhorses are highly recommended when installing the Lifestyle garage screen.
