    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?

    You state you need 6 tees but it looks like you only used 4. Where do the other 2 go?
