Oceanair hatch screens/shades

Hi I have 4 large Oceanair hatch screen/shades installed 1 year ago and in that time 2 of the bug screens have come out of the slider bar. The screens are simply rolled up at the end and glued to form a batten that slides into a slot in the slider bar. In both cases the glue seemed to have deteriorated. Oceanair has a contact form on their website and never responded to my inquiry for repair, which I ended up trying to do myself. Very disappointing for such an expensive item.

Had exactly the same experience about 4 years ago. Personal repair holding up well, though.

I have not had any trouble with mine. But I don't operate it often
