    My question is three fold,


    1. Would a Queen size sheet work instead of a king.

    2. If so, are the sides necessary to be glued/sewn for stabilizing the screen?

    3. We get a lot of wind in our area, any suggestions for keeping the frame secure?


    TIA

      Check out BenQ refurbished projector site. I have a BenQ projector and it’s amazing. Also for screen material check out Carlofet (dot) com and their black out cloth.
