I had cord pull off of spring. If you remove blind. The top will slide apart exposing spring. That spring needs centered with strings run through blind. You will need new string I did not. It's not difacault to do just relax and take your time. I have more issues with the strung holder attached to wall than anything. Sorry no pictures. I'll try next weekend my unit is over in storage.

I used replacement string from the sewing/craft store and a 4" long sewing needle to help thread the string through. Like John said, it isn't hard, just take your time.

Go to fixmyblinds.com.

They have all the materials, and video's to fix your problem. I have repaired several different kinds of blinds , using their instructions. They are prompt with their shipping.

They also sell a kit to repair them. The kits is enough to do 5 shades, it comes with instructions. They are not hard to repair just take your time. When my first one broke it was a few days later 2 others broke so you will get good at repairing them

I had this happen to me a few yrs back, I watched a youtube video on it a few times and then i watched it step by step as i did it and it wasn't as bad as i thought it was going to be. Looking at my cords i think ill be doing a few more this winter while we are on down time.

I have the same issue with my blinds. One in particular is just
about to break. My question is: the screws which hold the blind taunt.
They seem to pull out easily. Does anyone know of a good fix. A friend
suggested filling the holes with Gorilla Glue but there's about 8 different
varieties so I don't know which one.

You want the type that does not expand, that just create's a hug mess. Just a basic super glue would work or none expanding Gorilla glue
