    So it took them 7 or 8 months to manufacture the blinds for you, ic-racer? I'm counting from your December post to July.

    I thought I might have been scammed but the seesaw people answered every e-mail and phone call. The original manufacturer they send the order to failed to deliver and I was told they went out of buisness. They re-sent my order to polarshade and I got the shade in less than 2 weeks.

    I'm glad that worked out for you. It's good that you were working with an honest middleman.

    The top cassette was suspended so I could work with it and get the mounting holes correct. There was less then 1/8 inch error needed in the mounting location. Any error in mounting could cause the shade to bind in either side channel. If it is not perfectly level, the shade can drift to one side or the other when it goes up and down.

    There happened to be a stud right on the edge of where the mounting hole needed to be. I wound up getting about 4 different types of blind nuts to find one system that would deploy in that setting.
    For the record, this is the type that worked for me:
