    Hi all

    I need some help, I am trying to limit the screen using the limiter, where abouts is it on the canister, and how do you use it, do you have to wind the screen up then turn the bolt, or do you have it wound fully down and do it?

    Many thanks

    Matt

    Hello Matt,

    If the limiter is similar to my Owl screen then try this...
    Up limit adjustment sets when the screen stops when going up. Lower the screen to halfway and make the adjustment. Now raise the screen but keep an eye on it. If it gets very near to the top then STOP it before it rolls up inside. This means you have adjusted the wrong way. If you have adjusted the correct way then the screen should stop before it gets to the top.
    Down limit adjustment sets when the screen stops when going down. Use the same approach as before but be ready to stop your screen if it gets very close to it's normal down limit in case it unrolls off the internal roll.
    I have found that each half turn has an effect in steps of about 1.5 inches.

    What's it like your Duet screen compared to a normal screen? I looked at them but was put off by the price so converted my normal screen to multi format.
