Doublebull replacement rods - how to??

8 posts in this topic

My Doublebull got caught in a windstorm last year when I left it up on some private property and broke 4 of the rods. It's pretty cool that Primos will send you free replacements but here's the question - How in the heck do you get the ball on the end of the rod into the hub socket without shaving it down? I'm sure it fits great once in, but I'm not seeing a way to force it shy of a 2lb rubber mallet, and maybe not even then.

Ideas?

I have replaced the little piece on the end of the rod. I took the other off and then took the plate of the hub, put the poles in place and then placed the cover back on and tightened up the screw that goes into the middle.

Now, that is the type hub I have with the cover on it held with the screw in the middle. I would assume that you may have the same style.

You may have a diiferent style than I as my blinds have some years on them.

Are they still there? Primos bought them so I was not sure if they still did work up there. What a great place, bring in the blind they will fix it while you wait (usually no charge). I hope that customer service did not leave when the biz got sold.

Managed to call the 888# on the Primos site and got thru to someone, don't know if it's here or at their hq. Anyway, as was described, there's a cross-tip screw on the back of the hub (on the canvas side where I didn't see it!) that you take off, remove the washer, remove the ball and whatevers left of the shaft and then just slide in a new one. The new rods seem like a better material and the price is right, free and you pay shipping.

    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
