Fix Roller Blinds That are not Tracking Straight

By Betta Blinds and Awnings - 5th December 2022
This method should work for all Roller Blinds. 

What can Cause a Roller Blind to Track Incorrectly?

If your Roller Blind is tampered with or incorrectly adjusted this can be a major cause of tracking issues. Sometimes fabric may stretch slightly at different points over time which can also create problems with the tracking of the Blind. Fortunately addressing this issue is usually one of the easiest repairs you can do!

Extend the Blind

1. Use your Roller Blind chain to extend the blind so that the tube is exposed. You may need to remove a plastic stop if it prevents you from unwinding the blind all the way.

Attach Masking Tape

2. Attach masking tape to the opposite side that your Blind is tracking towards. For example if your Blind is tracking to the left, you would apply the tape to the right side of the Blind.

Test the Blind

4. Test the Blind to ensure that it operates correctly. If the tracking is still not correct you can apply more tape until the Blind is tracking properly.
