Blind Failures

So we stopped for gas and when we looked back the blinds have half fallen out of the coach. Seems the clip on the back side of of both blinds in the living room slide have broken. Starting to get frustrated with the poor workmanship on the Georgetown! Any idea where to find replacement hanging brackets? What would you call them?

Looks like Slo rise shades. They sell replacements. The mounts are spring loaded so it may have just popped out.

The spring portion of the retaining clip broke off!

They are made by Irwin shade and door. I've replaced 3 so far. The front sofa shade is a real PITA to get back in (I still haven't been able to do it!). I'm waiting on Goshen at this point. They really need at least 3 hangers.

This happened to our also. Upon further inspection, it was just the mounting screws. A dab of white glue, and problem was solved

I had problems with my shade over the couch and had to replace. When I called manufacture of shade they said they would only sell to a dealer not directly to public. They gave me a suggested contact and he was very helpful. I will attach his contact information. As a side note i will mention its very difficult to install without removing the valance. This guy was very helpful in guiding me on repair. Im sure he can get you the new clips if that is all you need as he sent me new clips also. Give him a try. I was pleased.

Mine also broke. Called Irvine (label on shade) and they sent me replacements w/o charge. I also purchased a shade for the dining room window (378 ) directly from Irvine.

Have issues with mine as well. The clips are a real PITA. Moreover, I determined that nearly all the rattling and noise I have while driving comes from the shades.
