The staple or brad that connects the control bar to several of the shutters have come off. Some of them are completely lost. How do I repair this?
I used to own and run a Blind business. Living in Florida, a majority of our volume were shutters. I would suggest getting a staple that is slightly longer than the one that came out and then pushing the new one in.
I would protect the lever with a towel and then use a wide wrench, like a plumbers wrench, to squeeze the staple in. Another option which would probably be easier would be to use the same size staple that fell out and use a two-part epoxy to set them in the holes. You may have to get a small syringe to inject the mix into the tiny holes before inserting the staple.
