The concertina blind on my Devon will not lock open. Has anyone repaired these blinds please and how do I mend the latch which keeps blinds open. Thank you.

If they are the same as mine, I can help. Can you post a picture of the whole assembly?

Thanks Peter but I do not know how to post a picture.  They are white,paper like,with a plastic rod top and bottom. No cords etc.  They are held open by small plastic buttons which slide up or down to lock blinds open. Hope this helps.

If the sliders are not catching to lock the blind in the open position, you probably need to replace them. On mine the blind handle needs a very positive push and hold before the slider engages.

A quick browse through the factsheets section will reveal this, which should help.

Bang on Peter. The same blinds as mine.  I think I have to remove the drivers side to get behind the sliders.

Thank you Peter. I shall show this to the fitter I hope can do this job for me.  Sods law in as much the van is up for sale and the last thing I need are repairs at this late stage.
