When it comes to the string on blinds, they are actually designed to go out over time without breaking the mechanisms. We mainly see it in heavier blinds such as faux woods or mini blinds. However, we had a case of a past customer who needed to re-string his cellular shade. He ordered the Comfortex cellular shades about five years ago. Instead of wanting to send the blinds or have to take them down for repair, he felt he could re-string it himself. Hunter Douglas actually has these nice, pre-packaged string kits but unfortunately, Comfortex doesn’t. The best we could do was mail him the string and have him call for instructions.
He did receive the string and emailed us about a week later. He said after searching, he found a very easy way to fix these and sent us the link.
