ODL Mini-Blinds: Convenient and Affordable?
Easy install blinds When a customer contacts you to help decorate their windows, you usually have to explain that it will be several weeks from the time that you measure the windows until you receive the mini-blinds from the manufacturer and can install them. This wait time works against you when the customer needs a faster turnaround time. ODL has a solution for this problem with their add-on mini-blinds. Mini-blinds have always been a dust-trap and time-consuming to clean. You have to wipe each slat individually or take them down to wash. ODL solved this problem by putting the blinds behind a glass panel. Your customer can enjoy clean blinds without the labor. This is especially helpful to seniors. Your customers will appreciate the clever built-in controls for opening and closing the blinds. They blend in with the framework and eliminate the trip hazard of corded mini-blinds. Sometimes young children tug on the cords, pulling the blinds down from the wall and possibly getting hurt. This cannot happen with ODL blinds since there is no cord. Installing these mini-blinds takes only 15 minutes and four easy steps. Open the screws, place the spacers on the bottom, hang the blinds and lock the clasp. You do not even need a drill. Pricing on these mini-blinds is competitive at under $100, and appreciably less when on sale. They are an in-stock item at many home improvement stores. This eliminates the long wait time for custom mini-blinds. ODL mini-blinds are an attractive and affordable window treatment.

How do you fix mini-blinds?
One of the most common problems on mini-blinds are slats that have been damaged or broken by pets or children. The slats on your mini blinds can be replaced. What you will need to do is un-string the blinds to remove the damaged slat, and then restring the blinds with a new slat. Restringing is fairly simple. You just have to thread the cord back through the holes and tie a knot at the end to hold your blinds in place. Another common problem of mini blinds is the tilt mechanism. You can replace the tilt mechanism with a new one. After you have purchased a new tilt mechanism that fits your brand of mini-blind, you will need to remove the end caps on the top of the mini blind so you can get to the tilt mechanism. You can easily pop the old mechanism out and snap the new one in. Then replace your end caps and your tilt wand, and the tilt feature on your blinds should work correctly. If your blinds are extremely damaged, you can easily replace them. When doing so, buy the same brand of mini-blinds that you already have. If you stick with the same brand, the brackets should match up, so you should not have to replace those too. Then, you can just slide the old mini-blinds off the brackets and slide the new ones into place.
