  1. This website has helped me immeasurably. I did a $300 job for almost nothing and gave new life to my son's blinds in his "fixer-upper." Thanks SO much for the wonderful videos because this one in particular cleared up something I thought I could NEVER do. Now I have the courage to fix almost anything with these blinds! The video instructions are clear and concise, easy to follow and the links back to the website are excellent!

  2. Hi, thanks for the really useful video. My cord will open and close my faux wood blinds for the most part, but they wont close fully. Instead some sort of gear in the blind starts clicking. Would I need a new tilt mechanism or cord lock? Thankyou
