How to Install Vertical Blind Vane Savers and Vane Saver Extensions

Video ID: 401053


Sometimes, the holes at the top of vertical blind vanes break, tear or crack. Instead of throwing the vane away, you can repair it with a vane saver. This metal clip simply fastens over the top of the damaged vane, recreating a hole to attach the vane to your vertical blind. Vane savers are used with vinyl, plastic, PVC, and aluminum vertical blind vanes. Vanes are also called slats.
