Anyone know where you get hold of the 6mm wide magnetic strip for connecting the two front window blinds please?

DO you need the strip because it is missing or just come unstuck. 6mm double sided tape will restick it. Just redone one side of mine.

ps make sure it goes on the correct polarity, doesn't magnet without.

Someone has removed and stuck it back in the past and it has broken, fragmented into smaller sections

OK. Don't know if these people will supply small lengths, but the quote 6mm width, with various magnetic properties.

Yes but you have to wait between 40 - 42 days to get it.

This may help as it is what I have done.

I do not know your blinds, but I use a cable tie made into a loop and slip it over the handles, works well and you really do not notice it, also stops the blinds from coming apart in the night.

I think I read on here once, you could also use an elastic band or girly hair band.

As I say it works and a cheap instant fix. allthumbz

You need both type A and B otherwise they won't attract. I think they are too thin, once seated in the recess, with blind closed the surface will be to far apart to be effective.
