    Sorry this may be a stupid question but, have you tried loosening the tension strings on that side?

    If it is cause the screen has streched more on that side you could wedge a bit of card in material roll to help balance it, not ideal i know.

    [if i loosen it it would be worse mate,it flattens perfectly if i just pull the top tabs. im sure its just the heat from the rad that has caused the ripples.im hoping that now its cold it may contract, heres hopin

    maybe daft answer but why not ad some weight to bottom left corner at the back of the screen. like those weights you put in your boxing gloves

    A corse way of dealing with ripples at the side of the screen is to insert a piece of card between the wound material thus rasing the screen material on that side.

    Try leaving the screen in the down position for a few days to let the screen material get used to the room temperature. Also try tensioning the screen on the bar, unitl the nylon is tought, leave it for a few days and make some more adjustments. that should help
