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.

We put these shades in our windows at home but were warned not to leave them down for an extended period of time (the winter season) because they would have trouble staying up thereafter. We really like them but have not left them down for the winter. We are not sure if the warning was correct.
