Oceanair blinds stuck in down position

I have gone on the website for ocean air and it is rather vague how to uninstall these shades. Click image for larger version

It looks like they countersink to put in but removing them is a trick. Mine doesn't have the little screw they say helps the tension.

This is the attachment point. Very hard to pull out these circular tabs. And the curtain won't pop back up. I keep pulling down on it, etc

Good evening, Troubadour, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

So, it's easier than you might think. Those little circular thingies on each end piece (one on top, one on the bottom) are simple plastic screw covers. You can pry them out any number of ways, I used a VERY large sewing needle and they came out pretty ease ( I elected to NOT use them when I re-installed the my blinds, they are just a nuisance in my book!). Once the screw covers are out just remove the four screws and take the blind down. The little screw that you remove to allow for adjusting the tension in on the back side of the blind's tube.

Of course, I can't say what your problem is that the thing won't roll up, but once you get it off of the wall and in your hand, the problem may become obvious. I sure hope so.

All the best,

Rob

I also need to remove an oceanair blind for a similar reason. I've used a large sewing needle plus other things to pop them out, but can't get anything to work. About to drill a small hole in the center of one to provide some leverage. Any other ideas on the removal?

I drilled a small hole to remove them. I called Oceanair and they sent me a small bag of screw covers.
