Repair Kit for Encore® Chimes that have a 7-inch top
Has your chime temporarily lost its music? You may need to replace the Center Unit. This is replacement Encore style clapper, windcatcher and 80lb gauge black string (enough for the entire chime). This kit works for chimes with a top wood piece measuring 7 inches in diameter. This style has the Bubinga finish and is meant for our Encore Collection chimes.
This repair kit DOES NOT include the wood chime top. If you also need a chime top replacement, please order the 7-inch Wood Chime Top for Encore Chimes.
Download the chime top template here. Be sure to print the template full size (do not resize for your printer/paper).
Here's where you can find chime stringing instructions, along with a how-to video.
Please note: a staple gun is required to perform this repair.
VERY, VERY difficult to restring with new kit.
NO nails to hold in place.
EXPENSIVE....practically bought a new windchime with the cost of this replacement kit.
FRUSTRATING...therefore never used kit!!!
The repair kit has all the parts necessary to restring my chimes. Instructions are easy to follow.
Chimes did not wear out I used a light weight hook to hang them.
My older set is still hanging.
