This article will give you some help on a few DIY repairs for your blinds. Most simple blind repairs don’t require tools, or at least not too many, so it shouldn’t be too difficult, but remember, if any of these things seem to complicated, you can seek the help of a specialist.
Slat removal is one of the most common blind repairs. Often, slat removal isn’t a repair at all, as blinds sometimes end up being a bit too long for windows and a few have to be removed. Blinds often come with instructions on slat removal, as this tends to vary from company to company. It is not a difficult repair, but instructions should definitely be followed.
Blinds Won’t Tilt Open or Closed
First, unhinge the box end bracket and remove the blind from the window. Check to make sure that the cords are running length-wise through the head rail. Make sure they aren’t tangled. Simply untangling them can fix this issue.
Blinds Won’t Open After Installation
Sometimes when blinds are manufactured the lift cords are pulled too tight. This makes them not release easily the first time. To release the blinds, press up on the bottom rail and pull the cord at an angle to release the blind.
Sometimes the tilter will become damaged or fall off. This is easy to fix. A new one (or your old one) can be hooked back on to where it attached to the top of the blind.
