Works just like the slot does. Easy fix! If you want to cut the broken end, I would first soften it with a blow dryer because it will split otherwise.

Anyone do anything different??

    Seems a better fix than mine. I take that strong clear package tape and fold over the end where it is broken, making sure to make thick enough of a layer to hang securely on the hanger dealy it attaches to. Eventually, though, time causes it to fall again. I like this fix of yours better. Clever!

    I've done this many times, its a great fix and they are fairly easy to cut. I haven't found a fix for the other end except taping white paper over the broken hole so it is not so noticeable if it can't be cut because a short one would really stick out. Or move it to the end where it would be less noticeable.

    I was using heavy tape and a hole punch until my mate found metal sleeves online. (Pretty cheap too) Just place the sleeve at the broken end and it's a NEW end.
    We've put these sleeves on all vertical vanes. No more falling! Like new.
    Of course, I've got cornices to cover the metal.

    I really love this idea. Broken blinds are a constant with kids and pets.
    What pray tell do you do if the hook has broken away?? Please help.

      Thank you. LOL! Not sure that will go over very well. There must be a way to change out the clips or to circumvent them. Does anyone know?
