Good product but bad service

    I went into the Torquay store to buy this item as I had broken a plastic set from a previous purchase.
    I was told to go and ask at the fabric desk by a member of staff as they were out of stock on the display. At the fabric desk the staff member just looked at me and said that they would be out if they were in stock.
    I went home and went on line. I clicked and collected the item and went back to collect it a few hours later.
    Not very helpful and could have saved me a trip.

          I looked everywhere for this, Dunelm is the only place to sell them. Wanted the metal mechanism as the plastic oneI had broke and it is the metal one. A little stiff compared to my others but took a few to install and have my blind back up and working

              Great price but apparently unavailable although the website says otherwise, so much for online shopping?

              Service and delivery comments:

              This item was available for purchase via the website. Dunelm then decided it was not in stock and cancelled my order. Could you keep your website up to date as this is bad customer service.

                  I used this to replace broken chain mechanism on a 1yr old Dunelm roller blind. Pity that the spacing of the screw holes on the brackets is different to the original brackets making new drill holes necessary. In fact I drilled new holes in the brackets rather than in the walls which were tiled.

                          This was purchased because my roller blind was not working properly and I was advised to buy new ends. Sadly, the new design is metal - much thinner than the original plastic fittings - therefore cannot be used as a straight replacement. Also the holes are in a different place to the originals, but only just - making it impossible to drill new holes. I will be returning this product!

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          I ordered these for click and collect. Got a prompt email saying they were ready to pick up on the Friday. I went to collect on Saturday but they hadn't "come off the van yet" so I couldn't 't have them. I went back on Monday night and someone had to go find some for me, taking 20 mins. Very disappointing!

                              Bought as a replacement for the original winder unit on our roller blind. It says it will fit any roller blind, but I think it fits only their range, as it didn't dit ours, which we bought elsewhere.

                              Returned it as a waste of time. They should state only for our blinds.

                                  I was told it would replace any previous mechanism (Rotex)purchased at Dunelm.. IT DOESN'T.
                                  The hole centres are not the same, it doesn't fit the tube on my original blinds and the luggs on the brackets are too short.

                                        Roller blinds are 2 years old and do the job well but three plastic brackets have broken so far. The metal replacement is expensive and includes unwanted components (roller mechanism)

                                                The blind was OK but the plastic fitting for the blind is rubbish -- and you can no longer get replacements hence the blind is now no good-- so be careful what type of fitting you get with your blind

                                                        The original plastic wall bracket for the blind was too flimsy for purpose and mine broke within a few months of purchase. The replacement bracket is made of metal which is an excellent move. However, the original plastic bracket and the new metal one have different spaces between the holes. If you drill a new hole it is too near to the original one. They should have made the brackets the same size.

                                                            We purchased the product to replace the broken bracket that came with the original blind. The one criticism that we do have is that you can't buy the fixing brackets on their own without the chain etc which is all we needed in this case

                                                            Service and delivery comments:

                                                            In our opinion the website appears to be inaccurate or requires updating on a more regular basis. The website showed there was one of these products in stock however when we visited the store we were told this was incorrect. We were advised by staff to order the product on line rather than in the store as it was the most efficient way. On doing so we found that the store was still showing, incorrectly, one in stock.
                                                            We placed our order and in just over 12 hours we received an email informing us that the product was ready to collect in store.
                                                            So either they had received a delivery between 1920hrs on the Saturday night, when we placed our order, and 1035hrs on the Sunday morning, when we received the email advising us our order was ready for collection, or they had them in stock after all.
                                                            I cannot fault the service or level of communication though,we were kept fully appraised of the fact the order had been received and then that our order was ready for collection. I do however question their system for updating of stock levels and wonder whether we had an unnecessary trip.

                                                                Stupid system, once order completed the website says it is ready for collection but this is not the case, you have to actually wait for an email telling you when it is available. I knew this because of another customer review complaining of an abortive trip to collect something that hadn't in fact arrived. I avoided a needless trip, thankfully, as I live 35 miles away, but as this flaw has been pointed out before I don't understand why it hasn't been rectified.

                                                                I have to commend Dunelm they have obviously read and taken note of the earlier criticism and ammended the product accordingly. Overall this is a really simple product to install and better than the original fitting.

You go through the process on the website and find how many are in stock. You click to reserve (knowing they are in stock), and then receive an email which appears to confirm the reservation. At this point I went to the store, where a member of staff pointed out that in small letters the email says you will be emailed again to advise when the item is in stock.

                                                                  It turned out the item (previously shown as 'in stock') was discontinued.

As the tube of my roller blind is a bit wider than the part that is inserted I made a couple of plastic shims to take up the excess space. was able to use the same top screw hole as the original bracket and drilled a new hole for the lower screw. With a little bit of thought and DIY this product is an excellent alternate to throwing out an otherwise perfectly good roller blind. Yes I reccomend it!.
