Help needed from late-model CCD owners

This is about the OCEANAIR blinds used in your trailers.

I have one at the front entry and one at the galley window in my re-model.

Can someone kindly post a picture here to show me how they are secured in the DOWN position? I've looked at photos on the Airstream website but they don't show this.

Your help will be appreciated.

Sergei

I don't have a picture handy but the little cone on the pull-down fits into a small plastic block at the bottom of the window. It secures it by the spring tension on the shade and the shape of the cone.

The only negative is you can't pull the shade halfway to stop. it's either full-up or full-down.

Thanks Dennis,

I'm still hoping that a current owner will take and post some pictures for me.

The product is shipped with hardware pieces - some that look like they catch the pull and others that look like they will cradle the bottom cross bar, the shade kept in place by the tension from the roller - but with no instructions.

I've installed mine using the cross bar pieces but I would like to know exactly where Airstream is mounting the hardware, particularly at the galley window, where the window opener hardware gets in the way.
