How to Repair Vertical Blinds Getting Vertical by Kung Fu Maintenance Hudson Klovach

Ok. Let’s say you go to open your blinds and…
Oh No. Blinds won’t open. Obviously here the first thing to check for is any blind slats
being out of step with the other blinds. Mine right here you can see this one is the wrong
way. So we can just push it with our finger and reset them the right way. That is the
most common fix and what usually happens is the blinds get out of step. Easy fix. OK here is a little bit bigger problem with
the blinds. Let’s say one of your blind slats is completely out of step with the others
so that your blinds aren’t working. It’s a matter of moving the blind slat the right
way. Now sometimes you can grab it with your fingers. Let me move this out of the way so
you can see. Move the valance out of the way here. Anyway. Grab the stem with your fingers.
Than turn it so that it is in line. This one was two steps out of the way. Now it is inline.
Check to make sure everything works good and we’re done. Now if it is a little tougher you may have
to grab it with a pair of pliers. Take the blind slat off and grab it with a pair of
pliers and than pop it over. Turn it over. Than you’re all set.

  1. i thought this was a repair video!! like the vertical blinds fall out all the time and can't get them back in cause they break so easily!

  2. @penotch Yes, that definitely happens also. Replace the broken slat with another one dollar fifty cent slat. Or you can flip the broken blind slat upside down, punch it twice (half and half) with a whole punch, reset the slat in the clip and trim the bottom straight with scissors.

  3. This was one of my very early vids. I hope to show improvements day by day. ~ Thanks for watching ~
