How to Temporary Repair Your Vertical Blinds With a Flat Head Screwdri

My Vertical Blinds are always breaking. So one day I found a way to temporary fix them by using a flat head screwdriver. I take the screwdriver and heat it up on the stove allowing it to melt a hole through the blind for a quick fix.

    I have had this problem multiple times with my verticals. I take shipping tape, either clear or neutral colored. Cut several pieces, a little longer than the top where I need repair, place them one on top of the other. Then place the stack of tape over the top of the vertical, fold over. Squeeze to make it stick. Trim the edges. Make a new hole through the tape. Works great ! The hole is the tricky part so have patience.
