2007 blind repair

Where can I find the plastic washer thing that blind strings run through and you tighten them down with. When adjusting the blinds found two of these broke.

I ordered a bag of 50 from an AS dealer. About 5 cents a piece. The trick is to not tighten them down hard....just enough to stop spinning under tension.

Some folks use sewing machine bobbins.

Yeah, funny thing is, after I replaced 8 or 10 that the factory cracked.....I haven't needed another one in 5 years. I'm sure I will, due to sun rot.
