Fix Veri Shades® or Vertical Blind Blade Not Turning

By Betta Blinds and Awnings - 5th December 2022
This applies to Veri Shades® and the older version of our Vertical Blinds. Our current Vertical Blinds use different carriers that do not have removable hooks so this fix is not suitable for our current Vertical Blinds. 

Test Blind

1. Test the Blind to identify which blades are causing issues.

Identify the Problem

With the blades now removed you should be able to see that the carrier hook is not correctly aligned with the other hooks.

Realign the Hook

To straighten the hook you can turn the wand until you feel a little resistance. Once you feel the resistance continue to crank 3 times to align the blades.
Before reinstalling the blades check to ensure that the hook is functioning correctly.
