Broken Blind Post

Does anyone know a good source for the plastic post that holds the bottom of the blind cords?

They're probably on Amazon, but I don't know what they are called.

Thanks.

Dustin at Escape may have a source if someone here does not.

Window Shade Cord Retainer. Here's one: https://fixmyblinds.com/products/rv-...-3-8-clearance


This is not the exact one that Escape uses but this one is probably more robust. https://www.amazon.com/JR-Products-8.../dp/B002UC18MU

Ah, good ol' J.R. Products. They make any number of odds-n-ends found in Escapes and other trailers.


Price doesn't beat my initial solution, though, which would have been a stack of 5 cent washers from the hardware store.
