Finally got around to replacing one of our day/night shades that just wouldn't stay up. Found out that the assembly person in the factory in China simply didn't bother to string the cords properly. Of course, when they do that, there isn't enough cord to do it the right way, so I will have to go out and buy a roll of cord and redo the whole blind. Luckily, I had a spare so just replaced it. But of course it wasn't quite the same colour!
Earlier this season I had to fix another one, as they buggered up one of the grommets in the blind that is supposed to keep the cords from chaffing, and the cord was cut after only a few uses of the blind.
This makes me wonder if I will eventually have to fix every last one of the blinds? Gotta love that Chinese crap they send over here!
