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.

      Duh it was the bottom of the same panel. Read the directions again. I’m not the person that did this, just another person like you but couldn’t resist answering your question

    This is similar what I did years ago. To expensive to change out. I just put the repaired one on an end that know one sees because I pull my curtains back. Good idea.

    They do sell little metal clips on Amazon specifically designed for this problem and will give your vertical blinds many more years of useful life.
