Thank you Bob. It really does not look hard to do. My issue is time because we both still work full time.

Good timing -- I just installed MCD's on all of our side windows. As others have said, a 6" extension on a cordless drill is very helpful. I saw others removed the valance and attached the shade clips to the valance, click in the shade, and re-attach the valance. I did not remove the valances-- I wanted the screws holding the clips to extend through the valance and into the cabinet for strength. To remove the first pleated blind and install the MCD was a good hour. After learning what to do, it took 15-30 minutes a blind.

It beats restringing the old day night shades, and those ugly string wheels at the bottom of the shade. It was also hard to find those wheels. However, if anyone still has those shades, I saw somewhere, you can use a sewing machine bobbin.
