Another in a line of boring and mundane household items.

My apartment has vertical blinds on all the windows and they are all in some need of repair.

This design is for a set of parts for a vertical blind:

1 Bottom Weight (in 2 parts because it was too big to print otherwise
Hanger (shortened for printing but should work fine)
2 * Cord clips (The bit that attaches the strings to the weight)

As with a lot of my designs so far it has small pieces so I don\'t know how well it will print but I hope the design can modified to work if needs be.

The big reason I made this design was not cost. I've found 3 different makers of these parts and none of the are a perfect for for my blinds. So what I need is the capacity to make one or two small items to my exact requirements.

I\'ve included the SKP file in case anyone wants it.


This design is untested

1 STL file with 6 parts


The bottom weight is printed upside down

The join piece for the bottom weight is not perfect but should hold it in place when its in the sleeve.

The cord clips include a groove for putting in the string and affix with a drop of glue.
