How do I attach window screens to the round part?

As you can see from my picture, I put window screens on the lower part of this large window, but I would also like to cover the arch. I plan to measure and get them custom fitted, but the problem is, I have no clue how to attach them. It doesnít have a metal lip like the lower ones, so I am not sure if the metal springs would work. Anyone have any ideas?

You want to put screens on the arches ?
Do they open ?

It wouldn't take much to hold them in place. Three-four screws and clips would probably do it.

You don't put screen on that section. Not to be rude, but it would look odd! And you will cut down on the light. Usually something you don't want to do. Any holes you put in to the top section introduces another possible leak.

Got to agree with Norm... and not to mention it looks like you could easily put a screw in the glass and break it.

Do the windows in the top section open? I've only seen 3-4 windows like that (arched top) , but none of them had the ability to open the arched part.
If so, how- hinged at the bottom? individual arc sectors of glass?, full unit hinged how?? ??
If they don't open, why have the screens there?
Thanks in advance.

No they donít open. Iím just putting solar screens in for keeping out the heat. They really do seem to help.
