Storm Door Repair and Installation Q&A

Be sure to scroll down... there may be more than one question on this page!

Dear NH,

I have a couple of aluminum storm doors with removable/interchangeable screens and windows. To secure these panels, the door has several thumbscrews and clips. A couple of the thumbscrews have broken off within the inserts or are seemingly cross-threaded and difficult to work with.

Is there some way I can remove those old thumbscrews and replace them? I'd hate to have to buy a new door simply for the sake of a few thumbscrew clips.

PP,

The inserts can be replaced if you have a drill, a pop rivet gun and the correct threaded rivets. Rather than write you a personal epistle, get the complete information by visiting our pop rivet page at: https://www.naturalhandyman.com/iip/infxtra/infrivettool.html
