How to remove day night shades 36CKTs

I need to restring most of the blinds in my trailer and was wondering if anyone could share how they removed the blinds to be able to do this? Seems very tight and hard to get under the valance to remove them.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks
Greg

It's alot easier to remove the valance first, then remove the blinds.

The valance will be held in place by two to 4 screws. Once their out of the way, two or three screws will take thw blind down,

I'll stick with the herd mentality, remove the valance.

I don't know how old your CKTS is so maybe they changed a little but on mine the screws that hold the valance to the wall at the top are hidden by the blinds so...you have to take the blind out first. There are two L brackets on either side for the short valance and then two L brackets at the top of the valance and these are hidden behind the shades...but this is on a 2004 so certainly newer may be different.

If yours IS like mine the blinds usually snap into the two metal clips so to get them out you sort of have to get your hands up in there and kind of twist ( or rotate) the front of the blind up to pop it free of the clip then it will simply (well kind of simply) come right out.

Once you have done it once you can pop em out in a few seconds..they are easy ONCE YOU HAVE DONE IT ONCE. It's just getting the right twist down to release it from the clip

Most day/nite shades clip into the brackets and can be removed with a twist. FYI, I have an 07 Cardinal and I've restrung those shades so often I'm now replacing them with blinds.
