How to Repair Wood Blinds

My wood 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 one person.

My wood blinds will not tilt.

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.
