Shade brackets

Looking for a source for the brackets that holds the day/night shades up in the 2014 36rl. Rough Michigan roads broke them on the rear window.

Are yours the roll up kind or the pleated ones.
The roll ups are from Irving Shade in Elkhart and if you contact them they'll send replacements, but when installing the replacements, use cable ties in and "X" pattern to prevent future failures.

I had one (only have night shades) break over dining table, which will break both of them with it comes off. I called them (Irvine Shades) and they sent me a 5 brackets. They are very easy to deal with!
So I replaced the existing 2 and added a 3rd in the middle. I also added another one the rear window, now have 4. I like the "X" cable ties idea, might have to try that. Good Luck!!

I used black, 11 cable ties for a while till I was able to get new brackets.. It is surprising how well they hold when 2 are used..

Once I got my new brackets, I re installed the cable ties ( 2 each ) onto each bracket...

I replaced some of the brackets & zip tied them, I also went through & zip tied all the others before they broke.

A big thank you to all that responded to my inquiry. On researching Irvine Shade and the Shade-Man, I found that there should be a minimum of four (4) brackets on the rear window shade. Redwood had only installed two (2). So much for quality control.
