First Aid Kits


Don’t despair, Repair! Extend the life of your pleated shades with United Shade’s Pleated Shade First Aid Kit.



The kit includes hardware and easy-to-follow instructions for repair of two-cord day/night shades; four cord day/night shades and two-cord night shades only.
The United Shade restring kit is compatible with most shades. However Day/Night Shades that are imported may be constructed in such a way that that restringing is not possible. A simple way to tell if you have an import shade is by examining the rails of the shade. If the rail is made of aluminum you are able to restring the shade. However, if you have a shade with PVC (plastic) rails and an identification label (usually located on the headrail) with a BAU#, please contact a customer service rep at 574-262-0954. The kit includes instructions in an illustrated format.  Flat-head and Phillips screwdrivers and scissors are the only tools needed.

Helpful Tip:  Dip the ends of the cords in “Krazy Glue” and let them dry. This will make it easier to thread the cords through the holes in the pleats.
