Pleated Shade Hold-down or RV shade cord retainer

This is not the exact one that Escape uses but this one is probably more robust.

A plastic spacer available at any hardware store, two small stainless washers, and the screw. Pinch the cord between the washers.

We think alike! I actually used a cork from a wine bottle as a temporary replacement, until I received one from ETI. But, I was trying to find more, in case I should need to replace another one after the warranty expires.
