Blind Hanging Clips


Large Spring Steel Blind Clip

Over the decades blind cleaners have used a variety of methods on their drying racks to hang their blinds from zip ties and cord loops to the stainless steel spring clips pictured. Experience has shown that for any open headrail with a rolled edge, the stainless steel clips are the easiest, fastest, and most secure way to hold blinds. The “lip” on the bottom of the clip hooks into the rolled edge on most open head rails and securely holds them. To release one simply lifts the rail and squeezes one side of the clip. Plastic zip ties get brittle and break, and cord loops get dirty or fray, but these clips will bounce off the floor and be ready to go again year after year. They are durable and won't corrode. Say goodbye to dropped blinds due to brittle plastic loops, loose cords, or brackets that weren't really tight.

Periodically has hundreds of clips fabricated to our specifications in two different sizes (small and large). Using the collective purchasing power of our network, we can keep the production costs down and sell the extras left after subscription orders are filled.

Shipping and Handling charges depend upon your location and the size of the box needed for your order. 

Once blind cleaners or blind repair people discover these clips and purchase a few to sample they usually keep adding to their collection—depending upon how many blinds they typically hang at a time. While two clips hold most blinds, we recommend using a third center clip for blinds over 5 feet wide to provide additional support, especially on heavier faux wood or big mini blinds.

Compact Shop Blower



Do you need a powerful compact blower for clearing out bugs in the cells in shades or drying blinds?  Shop for a commercial-quality pet grooming dryer.  It is even handier if mounted on a rolling platform or pedestal stand (which can be purchased or made).
