DIY Roller Shade Troubleshoot

Here goes the easy troubleshoot for roller shades.

1. Having hard time to Raise the Blinds?
After discarding the window shade from the bracket turn the pin on the side with the tension spring with a plier.
If you feel some tension, hang them back up and you’re done.

2. Too slow or fast blind roll up?
tension spring adjustment needed…..
For slow roll ups- Discard the shades from the bracket keeping it lowered. Roll up by hand to the half way point and replace them. DONE!!It’ll work fine.
For fast roll ups- Discard the shade from the brackets keeping it up. Unroll it by hand to the half way point and replace them. DONE!! It should be good to go.

3. Blinds Won’t Stay Down?
Need to clean the rachet or paw. Keeping the shade up take the roll up blinds down to clean the rachet.
Remove any dust from the rachet using a toothpick and compressed air. Apply some silicon
spray. That all you have to fix that problem.

Going through the process you’ll know if the roller shade is still usable. If it’s not then you can buy new from the market.
