How to Repair Mini Blinds

My mini blind slats will not lower.

Push up on the bottom rail of the blind with force and pull the lift cord sharply toward the tilter mechanism. For larger blinds, this may require more than 1 person.

My mini blinds will not tilt, or my slits will not turn.

Sometimes the tilt rod can become disconnected from the tilt mechanism in the headrail due to handling during shipment. This causes the tilt mechanism to move while the slats stay in place. To fix this, first remove the blind from the window. When you look at the headrail you will see a metal rod that runs the length of your headrail. You should also see where the tilt mechanism is housed. Gently push the end of the tilt rod back into the space where the tilt mechanism is located.

Tip: If you push the rod through, you will get a more secure tilt positioning. Replace the blind in the window.

How to Repair Cordless Mini Blinds

My cordless mini blinds hang unevenly.

Raise the blind and then extend the blind completely. Repeat this operation slowly several times until your blind hangs evenly.

My cordless mini blinds are creeping or sagging.

If you notice your shade is creeping up from the bottom or sagging from the top, please look inside the headrail to check for the factory-installed friction clips. Contact customer service to receive friction clips and instructions to install into the spring motor.

For shades that are sagging down from the top when raised, remove the bottomrail end caps from one end and look for one or more pieces of steel rod. Remove one piece at a time and check for improved performance. Then replace the end caps.
