What Blinds Parts Can Be Replaced or Repaired?

Repairing a blind can save you money if you are able to find the damaged part in question.

It may be worth your while going back to the company that you bought the blind in the first place if it is known. Make a note of the part in question and contact the company to see if you can obtain a replacement part. Many blinds manufactures have parts that only go with their blind and so you need to be sure of the manufacture of blind. For example there are a number of different types of cord locks on Venetian Blinds. If you are unsure you may find it time consuming trying to locate the correct part.

Here are the parts on most blinds which can be replaced. They are the cord lock, lift cord, the tilting wand if you have one on your blind and the tilt control. If you have a vertical blind you will be able to buy replacement slats (louvers), bottom chain and vertical hangers rails. Venetian Blinds be they metal or wooden can be restrung or re-corded. This should be done by a professional to ensure the blind operate correctly. The sidewinders on a roller blind can be replaced, but again you need the type of control or the manufacture as many companies have their own components. Roman Blind Head-rails can be replaced. A pleated blind can also be re-stringed

Disassemble your blind noting carefully how it came apart. When you get to the part that needs to be replaced, make a note of it and see if it is possible to order a new one and replace when you get your part.

If you have Velux Window blinds, these are difficult to repair and put back together again once the blind has been taken apart. For these blinds it would be better to buy a new blind.

If you have a vertical blind you will be able to buy replacement slats (louvers), bottom chain and top hangers.
