Don't be Left in the Dark by Broken Blinds String

Share Article

Fix My is a do-it-yourself blind repair service. We provide restring kits and parts for custom made blinds and shades via the internet.

Mini blinds, wood blinds, pleated shades, cellular shades - all of these relatively new window treatments are great...until the string breaks. Happens to all of us. The main reason of the string breaking and your mini blinds going ker-plop is from not making sure that your slats are not completely open when you raise and lower your blind. Any blind that has slats should always have the slats in the open position before pulling on the string.

Another reason the string breaks is from always lifting the shade to the exact same height. This happens particularly with pleated and cellular shades. People r-r-run them all the way to the top and lock them in place. When the hardware clamps the string in the same spot over and over again the string eventually wears through.

When this happens, you can fix your blinds yourself. Fix My Blinds in Colorado Springs, Co., sells kits for restring all types of blinds and shades. The kit contains replacement string, instructions, a special needle (for threading through the holes), and other parts needed to do the repair yourself. The EZ-Restring kits cost between $18 and $30 depending on how much string you need.
