How to Replace an Astragal Spring Clip

Tools Needed:

  • 0.5” Allen Wrench
  • Screw Gun

Step 1: Pull off the cover piece by sliding your finger behind it and pull out.

Step 2: Using a 0.5 Allen wrench, loosen the set screw counter-clockwise.

Step 3: Using a screw gun, loosen the screw.

Step 4: With the screw loose, push up the slider and remove the spring clip by pulling down and out.

Step 5: Insert the new spring clip and line up the holes.

Step 6: Re-insert the screw back in, and use the screw gun to tighten.

Step 7: Next, push the flush bolt in to make sure it’s working properly.

Step 8: Retighten the set screw clockwise.

Step 9: Put the cover piece back in, by first squeezing it to fit into the kerf, and push back into place.

This process is for both the top and bottom astragal springs.
