X2. The website has all the instructions you will need. I recommend you purchase the $1.00 piece of wire to route the string. Works great and saves alot of time. They have a unique and accurate way to determine the string diameter. Look for the measuring stick and wrap a piece of the existing string around a pencil, per their instructions. WORKS!! It is easy to restring the shade. Just allow enough time. Took me about 45 minutes and a cup of coffee.

Well I got the first one done after a few choice words (no one was around but me that`s when I cuss the best), had to completely restring it. The next one should be easier now that I know kinda what I`m doing. I will make this observation, I would much rather work on something that requires a 9 1/16 wrench, or circular saw, or a crab pot then little strings, springs and bobbins and such.....

I finished up the second one. As with most things the second time around is much easier. However, there is little danger of me opening up a blind restringing shop anytime in the near future.

One trick I have used when pulling a broken string is to fuse them together with a match. Then you can gently pull the new one in with what's left of the broken string.
Working on them is cost effective at the test of your patience and religion.

I got a roll of replacement cord from Surplus City. $4.00. I have enough left to do many, many more.
