Vertical Blinds – Aiea- Aug 2016

I installed vertical blinds upstairs in 2005.  Recently, the mechanism to close the blinds broke.  I found the exact replacement at Home Depot Pearl City.

Replaced the center track and that was it.   Dissected the broken one and was able to repair it.  The gearing would not engage  with the rotating track rail.  The pinion gear engages a spur gear that drives a worm gear. The worm gear engages the track rail to make it rotate- clever.   Anyway,put this up in the spare bedroom to replace a beaten up roll down shade.
