Mini Blind Tips and Fixes
Mini blinds provide privacy, block the sun and usually work perfectly for years. Here are our best tips and fixes for mini blinds that could use a little TLC.

Mini Blind Cord Safety
Keep mini blind cords safely out of the reach of infants and toddlers by putting suction cups with hooks on the window. You won't have to drill holes in either the wall or the casing for cord brackets. And when the kids are older, you can just remove the hooks—no holes to repair!
Straighten a Bent Blind
Operate Mini Blinds Covered with Shrink Film

Make Your Windows Work for You
