Larson storm doors come with an optional retractable screen. Unlike other screens, the Larson retractable screen rolls up into a cassette at the top of your door to keep it safe when not in use. If your screen is damaged you can replace it with a new screen by replacing the cassette and screen. You'll need to order the parts from Larson.


Step 1

Use the screwdriver to loosen the screws on the screen assembly cover at the top of the Larson storm door. Remove the cover from the door.
