Handles on a mosquito net are one of the weakest points near a plastic window. They break very quickly. This happens due to the drying of the plastic. From high or low temperatures, it crumbles, and the holders break off to the ground.
That is why you should not leave mosquito nets on the windows in the winter. This significantly reduces the period of their use. After all, not only the holders can suffer from frost, but also the plastic frame and the net itself.
True, plastic suffers in the summer, but at this time it will not work to remove the net into the apartment. Therefore, breakdowns also occur in frugal owners.
But do not be upset. You can always buy handles on a mosquito net and make the replacement yourself. This is easy enough to do.
You can order holders for mosquito nets over the Internet, and they are also sold in hardware stores.
To work, you need the following:
- a screwdriver (if it is not at hand, you can use a blunt knife with a thick blade);
- new holders.
Handle Replacement Instructions
Before replacing the handle on the mosquito net, plastic debris must be removed. To do this, we use a screwdriver to get the sealing cord. We do this only near the place of fastening the handle.
We take out the plastic debris from the groove.
Insert the new holder into the groove.
Using a screwdriver, carefully return the sealing cord to the groove.
In the same way, replace the second handle on the grid.
Putting new pens on a mosquito net turned out in just a few minutes. Now it can be fixed at any time to the window.
This time it was possible to repair the mosquito net, but it is worth remembering that the breakdown can be more serious. If you leave for a long time in the summer, it is preferable to remove the nets from the windows and remove from the scorching sun. The same advice applies to the winter season.
