    Many of the vertical windows blinds in the house I have just puchased
    have blinds twisted out of sync with the others. Is there any way of
    repairing them? I am not sure of the manufacturer.

    thanks in advance

    Ours go like that sometimes as they catch on the window vent when
    opening/closing.
    What I normally do is to pull the cord that twists them until the majority
    lay flat and then pull a bit harder until they are in synch - if this does
    not work try reversing the twist. It sounds a bit ratchety but should work.
    Always works for me at home and at work.

    Thanks for the advice. I guess brute force got them that way so brute
    force will get them back.

    Just try to support the track with your hand when pulling the cord as you
    may pull the whole thing down around your ears :)
