I have an old Academy Broadway Screen House, Item No. 282.  I am missing one leg section which is a blue 2-3 which is for the center upright, top frame.  According to the picture on the assembly instructions it is a #5 and has both male and female ends.  Does anyone know where I can find one of these?  Other than missing this one piece, the screen house is in excellent condition.

Hey KatKat, welcome to Trailspace. Have you by any chance contacted Academy Broadway?

Try contacting them here and see if they can direct you better on your search. There are a few companies that make replacements but this process can be somewhat expensive.

Here is a contact number for Academy Broadway:

(606) 376-8077

If you have any troubles with this number let me know and I will do what I can to get ya more info, happy hiking.- Rick

Thanks Rick.  I did contact Academy Broadway.  The screen house is just too old, about 35 years old!  So I am going to try to have one made.

Ok, well being the age of the shelter I agree that your best course of action would be to have one made. Here is a link of a company that handles that type of thing. Hope it helps.

I agree with Apeman on this one. I have noticed that alot of the time the cost of replacing/manufacturing the poles borderlines buying a new shelter...

Thanks for the information.  I've talked to a tool and dye machinist that I work with and he thinks he can make me one.  If not I will check out polesfor you.com
