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, 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 goodby to dropped blinds due to brittle plastic loops, loose cords or brackets that weren't really tight.
Small (Minis Pleated)
1" Blind Clips
|$5.00 each||$4.50 each||$4.00 each||$3.50 each|
2" Blind Clips
|$5.50 each||$5.00 each||$4.50 each||$4.00 each|
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 addition support, especially on heavier faux woods or big mini blinds.
