Can my torn levelor blind be glued together?


My 12-year-old levelor blind (actually Carousel by LouverDrape) came down, leaving just one section of the 5' blind in place. Home Depot has some glue it thinks may fix this. Will it hold? Anyone have this problem? Should I just go buy a new one?

Thanks very much!

You'd probably save some money by repairing it, so why not give the glue a try and if it doesn't hold or you don't like how it looks, then go buy a replacement.

Get a new one if you can afford it. I am assuming it is a vinyl blind of some kind? Idiot advice from HD and all glues known will not hold it together. $5-6 for glue to try this nonsense plus whatever value you put on your time? Sounds like the deposit on a custom blind purchase to me?

You know what? It's 12 years old anyway, so I guess sester is right. Just buy a new one.

I think this is a pleated shade. Did it pull off at the top ? Don't think glue will hold very long if at all. Do you have more in the room so if you replace this one you have to replace them all?
