Replace with MCD pull down shades.

Don't even. That's what I did and several of my MCDs, which are wildly expensive, have failed. I have to use a clamp to keep one of my MCDs from rolling up.

Wished I had kept my original shades.


My experience is 5 years of full time use. ZERO issues. Maybe you should contact MCD.

Been there done that.

Suggest others search this forum and others for dissatisfied MCD owners.

EDD505 has the link you need. They sell the string in various lengths at very good prices.

Absolutely research whatever you buy. I just did a search "MCD shades issues". Not much to see.

I restrung a day/night blind yesterday. I was going to replace the whole thing, but tried the $20 kit and with a little youtube help it was pretty easy. Saved some cash!

That grommet that causes string to fray can be replaced (in our TimberRidge anyway) with a plastic sewing machine bobbin.
