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 that issue all the time because of all the traffic that goes through the blinds, i turn them over and make a cut out too, except i take some duct tape (white) and put it over the damaged area. Works like a charm and the duct tape blends

    When mine break, I just fold a piece of clear, packaging tape over the broken area and the old hole. Then I use a cut knife to cut a new hole out of the tape,
    the same size and shape as the old hole was, and it holds forever, for me and it is

    They sell adhesive patches for this problem on Amazon, very reasonably priced. I got some for mine and they work fine.

      I'm pretty sure they sell a lot of stuff to repair this. But this suppose to just be a temporary fix.
