Do It Yourself! The Roller Shade Clutch Kit has everything needed to create your own easy-to-use roller shades: just add your favorite shade fabric (Click Here). Raise or lower a shade of up to 24 pounds effortlessly just by pulling the ball chain loop cord. The ball chain can be cut to size for your required loop length; we include enough ball chain to accommodate the maximum shade length of 12 feet. The ends of the ball chain are fastened together to form a loop with the included chain connector. We have included two ball stoppers to limit the ball chain to a specific length, if desired. Continuous Loop Ball Chains are available separately at Sailrite® if a specific continuous length is required for extra safety, keeping the chain higher and free from the reach of children and pets.

This is a no sew DIY project! All you need, beyond common household tools, is a rotary cutter, or a pair of scissors, and a ruler. Construction time is less than 2 hours. We recommend using SheerWeave®, Phifertex® Designer or Phifertex® Plus -- all available at Sailrite!

The roller and the bottom rail can be cut to size to fit a smaller window. We recommend using a hacksaw with a bimetal 32 TPI blade to cut these parts.

Instructions for this kit are only available in video format in conjunction with the Sailrite Fabric Calculator.

Pro Tips:

  • Select a fabric that is wide enough so that seams are not required. Many fabrics can be rotated 90 degrees as long as the fabric width, minus 12 inches, is less than the desired shade length.
  • SheerWeave is available in several very wide widths and resultantly can often be very cost-effective and utilized for multiple Roller Shades, cutting two or more shade blanks from a single width of fabric.

WARNING: Strangulation Hazard! Always keep the ball chain loop secured to the Hold Down Clip and keep out of the reach of children and pets.

Yes, with the help of the tutorial you can do it!

Just as expected. Tutorial was a big help. Thank you!

Great product, as expected.

The Roller shade Clutch Kit was just what I expected and I was able to make my shade without a hitch, following along with your how to video. My shade is being hung outdoors, and I know that it won't last. I wish that you made a similar project that was heavy duty and intended for outdoor use.


Great kit

Purchased this kit for my 2-year old's bedroom window. The kit itself was easy to assemble and install—video instructions were especially helpful. The finished project looks great! Overall a great value for the price and effort involved.

Shipping and delivery time

Placed an order for $202 paid $48 2nd day delivery got it 2 weeks later! Then, because of late delivery changed my plans to buy material somewhere else to work around the project for my valuable customer, I returned this order for an additional $35 back to Sailrite. What’s up with the shipping stuff $$$$$. Not Happy!!!

Sailrite Response

As you may be aware, over the past few months expedited delivery has not been guaranteed (by Sailrite or our carriers) due to the overwhelming volume of packages being delivered. Your order was placed on 6/23, shipped on Fri 6/26, and delivered on Mon 6/29. We understand your disappointment that this was not the 2-day delivery requested, however we recognize 4 business days as a good result.
