Screen Spline and Space Balls
Quick tip: screen spline makes a good substitute when you can't find the right diameter space balls. March 20, 2006
We use a ton of Space Balls in cabinet doors. Is there any sort of dispenser or semi-automated way to drop them in the rails?
From contributor D:
Space Balls makes an insertion gun.
From contributor L:
I use screen spline. It comes in rolls and in various diameters. Much easier to use a single snake of spline on each side of a panel than individual balls (at least I think so).
