Leaf springs are used to keep window screen frames in place in window openings. Without them, screens are loose and won't stand up to high winds or other inclement weather. At Quality Window Company, we offer both flat leaf springs and slide-in corner springs to suit a variety of installation needs. They're easy to install and will provide years of use. If you're building your own window screen frames, these are a must-have component. For professional screeners, stock up on leaf springs by choosing the larger quantities of 100 and 500 pieces.

Each type of our leaf springs for window screen frames is made of durable metal that will install easily. The flat leaf springs install with two 3/16" holes on 3/8" roll-formed screen frame. You can also drill the same size holes 2 3/16" apart on 7/16" or other sized window screen frame. To make the drilling process easier, use our Screen Frame Punch Tool, which can be found in our Tools section. Unlike the flat leaf springs, the slide-in corner springs require no tools or drilling for installation. These heat-treated string steel options install by slipping into the corners of 5/16" or 7/16" thick window screen frame. These work best with external corners. Beginners will find the slide-in corner springs easier to install on their own. Professional screeners may need these and the flat leaf springs, so its' a good idea to have both types on hand for future projects. The leaf springs for window screen frames are available in quantities of 25, 100, and 500. These bulk boxes save you time and money, especially for professionals needing to restock on springs of each type. For more specific information about these leaf springs, see the detailed images with dimensions on this page.

Leaf springs effectively hold screens tightly in place in the window channel, so high winds, storms, kids, and pets won't be able to easily push them out of window openings. If you have other questions about our leaf springs for window screen frames, please feel free to contact us via email or phone at 972-438-9100 for more information. We're here to help!

It's hard to get a tight fit on a window screen without using these and they are priced better thru QSC, just like all of the other screen parts.

I only used these once, and the original frame did not use leaf springs, so maybe I used them inappropriately.

Advantages: Don't have to drill holes, saving time and structural integrity

Disadvantages: They scratch the screen frame and window frame during screen insertion and removal
Even fully compressed they add to the width of the screen frame, making insertion and removal harder than screen plunger bolts

It is so hard to find these leaf springs and they always seem to disappear. We have a couple of homes and cabins and there always seems to be a few missing, but not any more.

Advantages: Buying by the box is more economical and much more convenient. A real time saver

Disadvantages: Really see no drawbacks

My screens kept popping out, and with these little clips, they are now perfect.

Disadvantages: I only needed a couple, so will probably donate excess to local ACE.
