Window shades

Hi everyone.

Hope everyone is well. We are in S.D., at MT. Rushmore right now. What a site!!!. We had a string break on a horizontally pleated window shade. Can it be repaired, or should I be looking for a new shade. If it cannot be fixed, does anybody know who is the manufacturer of the shade? There is not a name on it, that I can see. We have a 2015,34IKE, Winslow.

Thank You-
Rich

should not be hard to restring a blind/shade, do a youtube search and you can find a bunch of videos with step by step instructions.

Check out

Amazon or EBay.

We had a string break on the same type of blind. Ordered on and the package came with enough repair materials for 4 shades.

Good luck!

Cheers 🍷

Go to a fishing tackle store and buy some 50 lb. braid line and you will be able to restring it yourself. I done several of mine.
