|Fig.1 Dragging blinds|
Supplies and Tools:
Fine tip marker
Wood paint stick
A local private school called me to repair their classroom blinds.
This post shows the seven steps to correcting this lateral blind.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows a white plastic lateral blind that was dragging on the bottom of the window sill and this prevented the blind from closing. Some vertical louvers were dragging on the window sill.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows that some of the louver had some high point and low point, each louver was not cut straight.

Step 4: Next take the painting stick and lay it flat against one edge of the louver. Use fine tip marker (black) to draw a straight line across the bottom edge of the blind.
