Hi guys,

I was fortunate to be given a Stewart screen (63x114). I bought an 80/20 aluminium frame and need to find a source for snaps.

Has anyone done this? Are the snaps 7/16ths? Should I get a self driving male stud setup?

I'll have to order on-line as I couldn't find any local store with snap fasteners like this (checked Lowed/Home Depot and an art store (snaps were too small).

Thanks,
Steve

A 3/8th male snap did the trick. I am going to look at measuring tomorrow.
