We sent one to South Willamette Drapery
P.O. Box 5465, Eugene, OR 97405
(541) 342-1015

$45.00 for repair plus $19.00 shipping each way.
Much less expensive than a new shade !

A+ service.

Thanks for the link. I had seen their webpage before. Has anybody gotten the CD and tried to restring their own? I have two that might need repair one of these days.

I've replaced two main window strings with packages from the Dirty Blind Man. His cd only works on a pc. We have Mac. He was extremely helpful. The toughest part of the job for me was reinstalling the blinds. The second one was much easier than the first.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will buy the package from Dirty Blind Man and give it a try. I have a PC, so the cd will not be a problem. If you see me with no blind on the passenger side front window, don't ask how it went!

Thanks.

With shades being able to be cut to any size nowdays I recently replaced one of my shades for under $20. I bought the shade at Home Depot & they cut it to size.

Chris was correct, the hardest part of the re-stringing was re-installing the blind. I re-strung two of mine. The CD contains pictures which show how typical blinds come apart and stringing patterns. You can see why the strings broke. In both cases a bushing came out, and the string cut into the plastic and bound up. It wasn't a wear factor. They came out.

The six string blind took longer to do than the 4 string.

For $20 and time spent it was worth it. I would definitely do it again over paying somebody to redo it or buying a new shade. I intend to buy a couple more kits, since I know from seeing the design/workmanship there will be two more to do eventually.
