Many different types of window coverings operate with continuous, or endless, loop cord. Cellular/Honeycomb shades, pleated shades, woven wood blinds, Roman shades, roller shades, soft shades and even wood blinds can operate with cord loops.
When your cord loop breaks, it can be frustrating. But purchasing a replacement and installing it can be simple!
First, you’ll want to measure to find the correct thickness of cord loop. Fix My Blinds sells four different thickness of cord loops on our website. Measure the thickness by wrapping the loop around a pen or a pencil ten times. Then, measure the width of those ten wraps while they are on the pen or pencil. Match it to the pictures on our site here.
After you determine the thickness of cord loop your window covering needs, it’s now time to measure for the length. Simply fold the loop in half (to mimic a loop), and measure from one end to the next. We sell cord loops in whole foot increments, so you may need to round up or down a bit.
Now, that you’ve gotten the loop, how do you install it? It’s easy! The concept is the same as putting a chain back onto a bicycle. Our YouTube channel is full of instructions for replacing cord loops, as well as many other blind and shade repairs. Check it out here: YouTube.
