Day/night shades

The screw that holds the adjusting spool stripped out. How do I repair it. I am not sure I can put a bigger screw in it. Any body got and idea or had this problem and how did you solve it?

Just move it over, up or down so it covers the old hole or glue a pc of toothpick in the original hole.

Never had a screw strip out, but a string broke on our former V-Lite. I bought one of the *large* 3M command hooks and placed under the bottom of the shade. That held it in place until we returned it to the dealer for warranty on other items.

I detest those day/nite shades. Once the warranty expires and as the shades break, I'll be replacing them with mini-blinds or some other pull down type shade.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
