Troubleshooter and help for wood blinds





Tilting Problems

The slats on the blind will not tilt when I twist the wand or pull the tilting strings.
When I twist the tilt wand, it makes a clicking sound and will not close the slats all of the way.
When I tried to tilt my blind with the wand, the entire wand fell off and now there is only a little stump left that I can no longer turn.
The tip of the wand broke off, but I can still tilt the blind by twisting the shaft sticking out of my blinds with my hand.
I have a wand tilter that I can no longer operate due to arthritis in my hands. I need something that is easier to manage for tilting my blinds.
The cords on my cord tilter do not pull smoothly.

Lifting & Lowering Problems

The lift cord that raises and lowers the blind is broken.
The blind is locked in the fully raised position and will not release when I pull on the cords.
My wood blind will not stay locked in the up position.
The lifting cord on my wood blinds is frayed and getting stuck in the holes in the middle of the slats. Sometimes the blind comes up unevenly because of this problem.
