If you really don't want to restring the shade(s) there are literally hundreds of alternate choices ranging from the standard cheap vinyl venetian blinds from Home Depot to really nice roman type shades in wood or other materials - all depending on what your finances will bear. I have a day/night shade out of my 5er waiting repair. Since I'm the second owner of the unit, it has suffered painfully, including missing some of those little grommets and the end caps. It's one of the big ones in the LR area and the options that I've found make it almost worth it to try something different. JC Penny is one of the places to start.
