The Fab-Lok™ Screen Stretching System is a sensibly priced, all-mechanical screen fabric stretching system designed to save time and money for printers currently buying ready-made screens from outside suppliers. Compatible with metal or wooden frames and any standard mesh fastening method you choose, the Fab-Lok Stretching system is reliable and easy to use.

The Quick Tension Screws allow you to quickly stretch screens using the torque screwdriver, which is included in the kit.

For convenience, Fab-Lok frames can be adjusted in your screen printing press to adjust registration. They may also be used as a low-cost way to stretch mesh to proper tension and adhere it to a separate frame.

Each model adjusts easily to accommodate a wide range of screen sizes. Maximum screen tension is up to 20-25 N (20 N on units more than 36 x 36" (91.4 x 91.4 cm), depending on the mesh count and other factors). Custom sizes are available.
