I bought the DIY screen kit to make my own lid for my Mr. Aqua 12 gallon long aquarium. Having a HOB filter and cords that needed 'cutouts' was a hassle. After being frustrated with the inability to keep the frame straight after a cutout was made and after adding the mesh, I gave up.
Instead I used an eggcrate light diffuser which was so much easier I couldn't believe it!

Easy to assy. and easy to modify if needed. I gave it a 4 because of the frame should be plastic. I had mine for a time and the coating is effected by the saltwater.

The first came bent but they replaced with no problem. I cut each piece to fit perfect no problem at all

I ordered the frame sections, corners, screen, spline, and spline roller. I followed BRS's youtube video on assembly and it was easy. The finished product looks great on the tank. I love the fact that BRS leverages youtube the way they do. It is easy and very informative, one of the primary reasons why I go to them for my supplies...:)

You have to cut the frame too size and is stated it is 4 feet. Also the spline works fine. It is the same as repairing a screen window.
Works as stated and easy to do. Hardest part is cutting the frame with a saw.

This doesn't appear to be the same product that is shown in the BRS video:
Custom Top Off Box and Screen Top EP:8 How to Setup a Saltwater Aquarium
The length of the pieces is too short and there is no way to splice two short pieces together. The video shows pieces about 36" long, but the pieces shipped to me were too short.

Ok..."magic" You cut it...like...with a saw to make it the size of your tank you muffin
and "London" dont rate a product 1 star because you are unable to use a spline roller....this product works fine, if you have basic motor skills

I purchased this system for a 36" tank and then found out that you have to make 2 - 24" frames to cover the tank with 12" of overhang on the side.
