Not sure how yours are made but mine has strings that are terminated with a round plastic thing with a screw through it. Not really sure what you would call the "thing" but anyway. I tried to retie the knot and make it tighter but that didn't really work all that well and ended up unscrewing the "thing" and l reinstalling it down farther, thus tightening the cord. Then I filled the old screw hole in and called it good. If this isn't descriptive enough let me know and I will take some pictures.
