Hi I would like to reply to the post...

Do Velux black-out blinds have a design flaw? By Steve__M, June 8, 2012 in Retailers - High Street and On-line Stores Forums             



but i am unable to find out how to reply hopefully one of the site moderators will be able to move this information to the above post


I Have also had the same problem with my Velux blind as the above Steve__M where the plastic has been sawn through by the blind cord. I also agree that this is a design flaw and is the inevitable result of friction between the cord and the weak plastic.

after searching for a very long time i have managed to track down the correct replacement part which is available from velux themselves as part number 948445

the part is called "side controller handle rail" and comes in a bag containing both left and right plastic parts two screws and an allen key. the cost is £3.60 with free delivery.



the cord can be replaced with ordenary cord just tie a knot in the ends.

I have just posted the link of this new thread to the old thread so that anyone who visits can see the link that you have kindly posted.

Also, that thread is now open and so if you wanted to post some information there directly then you could.

Thanks for this information. I'm sure it will be useful for some people although this sounds like a design flaw that the manufacturer should be responsible for
