The Stretch-Lok™ Manual Screen Stretching System is a sensibly priced, all-mechanical screen fabric stretching system designed to save time and money for printers currently purchasing ready-made screens from outside suppliers.

Compatible with metal or wooden frames and any standard mesh fastening method you choose, the Stretch-Lok Stretching System is reliable and easy to use. Each Stretch-Lok model handles a range of frames up to the recommended maximum dimensions. Multiple tension adjustment screws allow precise adjusting of the tension in specific areas of the frame, if needed.

Maximum screen tension is up to 20-25 N; 20 N on units larger than 36 x 36" (91.4 x 91.4cm), depending on mesh count and other factors. Custom size Stretch-Lok units are also available.
