The handle or finger channel allows the user to pull out the screen when needed and retract back when the screen is not in use. The screen is held in place with a latch system. In addition to the pleats, tension on the mesh is provided by a series of cords. These tension cords are also connected to a counter balance that assists the screen in retracting.
