works well By Phormium on 12/18/2013

This is a great product--the frame is easy to cut and put together, tight fit so that it's not flimsy, sits flat and the mesh is also easy to get straight and taut. Depending on the size of your tank, there is lots leftover of the screen and the spline for future changes or repairs which is a nice bonus. Overall somewhat expensive but the results were worth it.

Yes, I am aware that you could probably find all the parts for this kind of build at a hardware store, potentially even for less money. That's not the point of this kit. The point is that you buy a kit that's been tested over other people's tanks that you know works and won't require a single (or subsequent) trip to the hardware store. I used a simple hacksaw and rotary tool to cut and smooth the 3 foot kit to fit my Nuvo 24. It looks great and keeps my temps down in the hot Texas climate.
not worth it By Levi on 8/26/2013

I got the same kit at my local home improvement store for under 10 dollars. This is such a rip off I would hope people aren't seriously paying this much for this junk.

I have a custom sized rectangular tank with wrasses who jump. The top worked perfectly. While not quick to assemble.with frame cutting and inching along to get the screening tight,the final product looked great. I compared pricing for the kit components at a local hardware store and BRS was price competitive.

I am not a big fan of the frame material but in general this seems to be the only game in town if you want this type of cover with clear screen material. I hope it holds up to the salt environment. The build process is pretty simple, but can be a little finicky to keep the screen tight and the frame square.

Exactly what I was looking for, and easy to cut and fit specifically to your tank!

This kit has everything that you will need. I realize that you could get all the parts at Home Depot but you would have to purchase each item separately and for more money. Now I don't have to worry about my wrasse's jumping out of the tank!

Great job, BRS! I wish I had known about you all sooner. The kit was very easy to put together, though the 3'x2' dimensions likely mean almost everyone needs to trim this at least a little (probably cost-prohibitive for you to include a throw-away saw, though!). Luckily I have a hacksaw and some medium sandpaper. The assembly looks great and does its job. Thank you!

These are very easy to do and a great solution for jumpers. Took me about 1 1/2 hours to assemble 3 separate screens for my 250 gallon tank. You could probably go to Home Depot and get everything, but just much easier to get the DIY kit. Worth the money. Doesn't affect the lighting at all.

Ordered 3 ft. quarter in. mesh kit. All you need is a dremmel to cut the aluminum tubing. You get extra mesh and insert to hold mesh. Put it on my 40 breeder reef tank. The tubing is about 4 '' extra in length. I couldnot use it all since I have equipment hanging off back of tanksince I donot runa sump.So I just cut a 4'' strip of eggcrate to go around my skimmer,refugium,and penguin200 filter.Now I don't have to worry as much about my yellow coris wrasse jumping out of the tank.Well worth getting if you have FISH that jump!
Easy DIY screen By Linda on 4/19/2013

I'm the rare female in this hobby whom is pretty handy. However, I needed a screen top for my new Deep Blue Professional 60g rimless and bought this kit with some hesitation. It was super easy and took about 30 minutes because I stretched the mesh too hard and hard to start over. Great looking clear mesh screen top which I couldn't find at Home Depot. Thanks BRS!
