Question What is this window screen clip called?

Does anyone know what this type of window screen clip is called and where I can buy one? Can't seem to find it on Amazon/HD/Lowe's. Thanks!

That's likely a proprietary part. In other words, unique to the window brand and only available from them. But you might be able to have one duplicated on a 3d copier.

The clip in pjmax's link (and the Patriot clips swisco has) are one and the same... They go on the outside of the screen and slip into a groove on the outer screen extrusion. The clips in the op's photo go on the inside of the screen and hook into the spline. So those will not work.

Thanks for the info all! Looks like i'll be using small "L" brackets in lieu of these clips for some screens to keep them from falling out.

How do you close the window with those huge clips in the way?
They look like something the manufacter installed to hold the screen in place when shipping to me.
Have you removed the screen and checked on the outside edges for spring clips that hold it in place?

The clip is only on the outer track (for the upper sash). The inner track is on the right side of the pic.

There could be some truth to that.
