Mini blind End Caps and Hold Down

Our previous TT had hold down for the kitchen mini blinds but our 2014 Eagle did not come with any. I would raise the mini blind all the way up for travel so that it is not swinging around. I had been to several blind repair parts places here in Phoenix, AZ looking for an end cap for our kitchen Ascot mini blind. No one had them but I found a site that had the end caps. They also have other parts for restringing and hanging. I thought I would pass it on for others to use.

Milky White Plastic Bottom Rail End Plug for 1" Horizontal Blinds

I know shipping is a bit high but it saves on gas.

I'm going to order a couple of these hold down brackets today. Mine are plastic and I break one almost every time I try to use them when I move.

Wish I'd have known of this a while back. I "McGuyvered" a couple of new brackets out of metal after I broke the plastic ones on our trailer.
