The Solar Screen covers the entire glass for best cooling.

Check the Window for Turn Clip Locations First.

How to Attach Solar Screen with Casement Turn ClipsFirst check to see if you can put screws into the window frame without hitting glass.

On this window there is about 3/4 inch on each side that screws can be put into to hold the Casement Turn Clips in place.

We normally put 4 Turn Clips. Two on each side about 6" to 8" from the top and bottom.

Now actually draw a 5/16 circle where the Turn Clips will be located on each side.

Your Turn Clip positions could vary and be on top and bottom instead of the sides.

STOP: If you cannot verify that your windows have enough aluminum around the glass to place screws, then you may want to check the How To Guides for other ways to attach solar screens to your windows.
