So I was vacuuming my room in my apartment the other day and a gust of wind knocked the string to the blinds onto the floor and right in front of the vacuum. Needless to say, it ate up the cord and the blinds came crashing down with it. They were snapped pretty well in half right at the joint where the string is held. It seems to be a relatively easy fix as it was a pretty clean break, but I'm at a loss as to what the best method would be. I thinking a glue, but what kind of glue would be able to hold the stress of pulling up and down constantly (of course I would be gentler with these than the other set.
In reality, a ragged break where the pieces have some angled overlap is much easier to fix with just glue than a clean snap break. Usually with a sharp break like that, you have to add external layers to provide some sort of overlap.
I would just replace the broken slats. It's a pain, but if you work slowly and let yourself absorb the way the cords in the blinds run and how they operate, it CAN be a DIY......... but not the easiest one you'll ever do.
