Window Blind

Has anyone had any experience in fixing one of their Black Mesh Rollup window blinds. One of mine unrolled completely and came off the roller. I got it to reattach and rolled it up but there is no tension to make the blind go up after you pull it down. Right now I have it rolled up to just cover the top half of the passenger window. If anyone knows of a way I can get the tension back in the roller I would appreciate it. Thank You.

Are we talking window blind or window shade? Shades have a spring inside a hollow wooden or composite tube with a geared sprocket and a locking lever. Simply wind up the fabric on the tube, hold it and then twist the end of the metal shaft coming out the end. it should lock in place. slide it back into the slot in the mounting bracket and you are home free.
Blinds? Don't have a clue and did not blinds have tension springs

You are correct. I should have said shade not blind. I will try twisting the metal shaft and see if that fixes the problem. Thanks for your help.

The roller that the shade is rolled up on should have a round pin on one end and a flat pin on the other end. The flat pin is connected to an internal spring that provides the tension.

The easiest way to retension that spring is to install the shade into the mounts and pull the shade down. Then, remove the flat pin from its mount and roll the shade up manually. Repeat this as many times as needed to get the best tension.
