REDWOOD and SLOW RISE SHADES Brackets

How many Redwood owners have had issues with the Slow Rise Shad Brackets breaking .

I have had numerous issues with them and have replaced brackets on most of my windows, except the bedroom.

I suspect allot of the breakage is due to rough roads and the shock associated with that.

My picture window shade in the rear only had 2 brackets holding that large shade up and it broke. It now has 3 brackets and working good.

Appreciate any feedback you all can provide.

Thanks,

Jeff

Yes, some of ours have broken, especially on the larger windows. I replaced them and for added strength zip tied them to the bracket.

Hey that's a great idea. I have 2 shades that have fallen and will replace brackets and Zip Tie them.


Thanks,


Jeff

Strange, our big back window has been fine, the one that has broken twice in the shade in the dinette slide. this last time I did the zip tie method.
The only saving grace is the Company, Irving Shade, is quick to supply replacement brackets.

I haven't ever had an issue with any of the shade brackets, but on our trip back home from AZ last spring, the large valence over the shade in the big window was laying on the sofa. The Redwood installers had hung it with 3 #8 3/4 inch long screws. It's a wonder it stayed up that long. Needless to say it's never coming down again.

I just used the broken brackets with the criss crossed zip ties & they've held just fine. Also zip tied several that weren't broken yet just for insurance & moved the brackets on some they had mounted very crooked.

Our Large Rear Window Shade fell first, then our Dining Room (our second largest window) Shade fell about a year later.
Added brackets to both shades and Zip Ties for extra support, so far no more problems.

We also lost our rear shade... I replaced the brackets while we were away..

Once I got home, i read about the zip ties... I got a big bag of black zip ties, took EVERY shade down and added 2 black zip ties in the X pattern to each bracket..

We picked ours up and drove 120 miles home and when we got there the rear blind was on the couch with broken brackets. I thought what the f did I just buy.
Needless to say Irvine shade was great and sent new upgraded brackets for free. Same as all added 2 more to the rear as there was only 2
