TO NARROW ROLLER, PULL OUT FIXED-PIN END- CUTOFFROLLER.THEM REPLACE CAP AND PIN Ho it yourself Shades are problem By MR. FIX Tliero arc many stylos in \v i n d o \v coverings but remaining the most popular and used most frequently is the common roll-up window shade. Such, a shade affords privacy and is economical, easy to leave up for years and just as easy to replace. But window shades do create an occasional problem. They may suddenly snap up and all privacy is gone. Sometimes you can't wind them up at all. The sha-le Is fastened to a wooden roller with staples, tacks or tape. Inside llio roller there is a coil spring with a dowel inside. One end of the roller has a stationary pin. The other has a flat, rotating pin. Metal caps protect these parts. There are tiny pawls that fit into slots at the end with the rotating pin. The force of rotation causes the pawls to be released and that in turn causes the spring to raise the shade. Whenever you stop the shade's movement you cause the pawls to drop into place, locking the roller in the position. When the shade does -not roll up, increase the spring tension by pulling the shade down a ftw times. Remove the roller from HIP brackets :iii(t roll thr shade tightJy. Put il luck and try again. The pawls drop into place by gravity and sometimes they stick. Check to see if this has happened. When a shade suddenly snaps up, then the spring is too tight. Holl the shade to (he top, lake the roller off the brackets, unroll about halfway down and replace. Wobbly and falling shades may be due to loose brackets. Make certain they are fastened with screws rather than nails. If you are moving a shade to a slightly larger window you can make It work by making the brackets stick oul a bit farther by shimming them with bits of cardboard. Or extend the stationary pin by pulling it out a little. If you move a shade to a narrower window (a likelier move), work on the fixed-pin end of the roller. Remove the fabric and cut the end of the roller where the fixed pin is (it pulls out easily). Then put the pin back and replace the end cap. Trim the shade by stretching it on a flat surface, measuring, marking and cutting against a straight edge. Refasten to the roller with tacks, staples or tape. Newspaper Enterprise Assn.
