The window shades can be made easier to move up and down by adjusting string tension, you can do this on lower screw that holes the string. There are repair kits for string replacement, but are a pain to change. Have changed strings in by concourse and is almost a two person job!

In 2018 I sent one shade to Pat Miller at (503-390-8681) to have restrung. Came back perfect.

It was $40.00 to restring and get tension correct. Not cheap but easier for me to box up and ship off.

I found a dry lubricant which when applied to the screen strings pass through points made the screens really easy to operate, up and down. Recommend it. This is what I used: DuPont Non-Stick Dry-Film Lubricant Aerosol, 10 oz $7.96 [ ... UTF8&psc=1 ]
