Day/Night Pleated Shades

While doing some stuff in my trailer today I managed to break one of the plastic things that the shade drawstring attaches to. I don't know the correct name for the disc but it's located on the wall at the bottom of the side of the shade. Round clear plastic disc with a screw going thru it to attach to the trailers wall.
Do any of you know of anyone selling them online? And what the name of that item is called?
I might as well order a bag of them, I'm sure I'll break more of them in time.

They will have them at the Airstream store if you give them a call they will send them out to you. However you can use a sewing machine bobin and find those readily available and a metal one wont break. In a pinch I just wound the string around the screw without the broken spool until I replaced it.

Thanks Carol, using a bobin is a great idea, I'll do it!

Bluto, I've broken a few too. Another source is your local (if you have one) RV dealer. The one near me carries these pieces (I don't know the name either). A lot of RVs have the same shades and suffer from the same broken pieces. I like Carol's idea a lot - I'll be checking out local sewing supplies!
