How do I replace my metal blind slats?

To replace metal slats, please follow steps below:

  1. Remove the ladder cap from the underside of the bottomrail. (Mark I blinds: remove one or both of the end caps and slide out the vinyl sleeve that acts as a bumper on the bottomrail.
  2. Pull exposed cords out slightly.
  3. Cut the old cord above the knot and then pull the cord up through the last damaged slat.
  4. Remove the slats and replace them with new ones. Make sure that you insert the slats so that the route holes are aligned with the existing slat.
  5. Then weave the cords through the route holes being certain to alternate the sides of the ladder rungs as you proceed down the blind.
  6. Reinsert the cords into the bottomrail and tie them off.
  7. Replace caps.
