How do you tension a spring on a roller blind?

How to adjust a fully uncoiled spring:
  1. Remove the roller from the brackets.
  2. Unroll the treatment halfway.
  3. Use pliers to turn the pin on the spring side of the shade until you feel tension, then back off so the pawl (the latch that allows movement in only one direction) hooks onto the ratchet.

Loosening the roller blind spring tension

  1. Roll the shade up.
  2. Take out the brackets' roller shade.
  3. Unroll shade about halfway using your hand.
  4. Change the brackets' roller shade.
  5. Repeat this when necessary or up until you feel its tension is acceptable.

Subsequently, question is, how do spring roller blinds work? Roller shades are designed around a hollow tube, which the fabric rolls around. Pull down on the shade and a ratchet in the tube locks them in place. Inside this tube is a spring you can adjust to create proper tension. Then grab some pliers and turn the pin on the side with the tension spring.

Subsequently, question is, how do you rewind a pull down shade?

Insert the square tips at each end of the roller into the slots on the corresponding brackets. Pull down the shade, and slowly release it so the anti-reverse mechanism catches. Pull down the shade to release the mechanism and raise the shade up all the way.
