Slow Rise Shade Brackets

Anyone else have issues with Slow Rise Shade brackets breaking? Several of mine have broken. It seems the issue is Keystone not using enough brackets on the long shades. I replaced the broken ones and added additional; I'll see how they hold. Irving has been good about sending new brackets.

If you wish to solve the problem forever, place two cable ties in an X pattern across the brackets and around the shade bracket.
You are correct about not enough brackets, because if you read the install instructions from Irving the RV MFRers are not following.

Thanks, great idea! Might prevent a 48' double shade from bouncing around the unit on I-40 as in my last trip.

I had changed a shade on our 305RL due to it disengaging from to few clips. The new style clips in the pics, had some bad when received and one broke during install. But the new clips are better than the old formed clips
