How do you release a stuck blind?

Last Updated: 26th June, 2020

Use the flathead screwdriver to poke the pin inside the lock mechanism; this pin holds the lock. Place the screwdriver head in a perpendicular position to the head rail and press the flat surface against the pin. This should release the blinds. Replace the blinds on the brackets and close the doors.

Adding the cordless option removes the lift cords from the shades and makes the window shade operate without pulling a cord. Simply grasp the bottom rail of the blinds and lift to raise the window shades. To lower them from the top down grasp the top of the window shades and pull down.

How do you fix a stuck zipper?

Grab a graphite pencil and rub the pencil tip on the teeth of the zipper. Try it again and it should work. If that doesn't work, it's time to move on to a lubricant. Windex is good because it's not oil-based, but you can also use bar soap, or lip balm.
