Roller Shade Clutch 96" Kit

SKU: 107148



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 effectively 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.

Please Note: This item is too long to ship Post Office.

Installed 2 of these to cover triple sliding glass doors. Be sure your ceiling is level! 1st one took about 5 hours to install, the 2nd less than 2 hours!
Do like them, will do more.

Good Customer Service and Product. Measure Twice...


Customer service was excellent when I wanted to get specific measurements on these. Items were shipped in a timely manner and arrived undamaged. Seems to be high quality. Installed the first one yesterday following the easy directions and video online. Would have given 5 stars except the directions said to cut material and rods 1 1/4 inch narrower than opening. So I did. Entire shade ended up being nearly 1/2 inch too SMALL for opening. So we had to add some pieces behind brackets. Husband was not amused. For the remaining 3, we will hang the brackets and cut the rods to fit the openings FIRST, and THEN cut all the fabric to fit the rods; instructions have you do the opposite. Live and learn!
