Need to tighten MCD shade


Well-known member
Have 2 shades that I need to tighten up the springs on. Manual shows what screws you use, but says nothing on how to remove the shade to do so. Do I need to remove the whole valance to get to the shade? How does the shade come off it's bracket?

Here is a quick video on how to remove shade from clips.

You can tighten it in place if you can get your finger in there on the end.
You might call MCD to get the proper instructions.

I will attempt to explain it but I could be backwards LOL

Pull the shade down, push the adjustment button on the right side in and twist/roll the shade up and release the button.

One side sets the tension and the other side sets where it stops.

Like I said call MCD and let the Pro's help you. :)

Hope this helps

Ive cheated and pulled the pull bar ends off, and put the shade all the way up and then wrapped the pull bar over the shade a couple of times.
