Sturdy Spool for RV Shades
One of the pet peeves I have with our RV’s day/night shades is the plastic piece that holds the cords tight and is held in place with a screw in the wall. Over time, the plastic piece will break. I solved the problem by using an inexpensive metal sewing-machine bobbin that I bought at a sewing center. The bobbin will last forever, and the screw that comes with the original spool fits through the bobbin. Just thread it the same way as it was on the original plastic piece. I have now replaced all of the plastic ones in our RV with metal bobbins. Now if I can just figure out a way for the cords not to break, I won’t have to repair them again.
