Default Window Blind fasteners

I have a 1997 Coach House. The window blinds are fastened to the body of the van with a screw and a kind of plastic circle to wind the cord around. The screw has come loose on several of the shades, which means they can't be pulled up or down. They are thus fully extended all the time.

Does anyone know where to get these fasteners and/or how to make the screws stay?

maybe:
Larger screw?
Small bolt, washer and nut?
Peel rivet? http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/vi...p=11237#p11237

Can you post a photo of the problem?

I'm going to try a moly bolt with an added washer to help the cord stay in place. I'll let you know if that works.

1/8" molybolt with a life-saver-type washer did it for the one window. It must just be plywood behind the fabric because when we drilled it went right through. For the back window I needed a large plastic anchor with a screw and the washer.

It was still difficult to wrap the cord tight enough to have it work properly, but for now it'll do.
