To make your own patch for a metal screen, cut a patch from a length of screening.
Trim edges of the hole into a neat square opening.
Make sure the patch is 1/2 inch larger all around than the hole to be repaired; bend edges’ teeth into right angles.
Set patch over opening so teeth penetrate the screen.
