How to remove a blind 1 handed

Un-Hook ‘Em Horns

Four hands later, we finally uninstalled the blind. I got a text this morning from Home Depot, asking if they could move up their new window installation date to tomorrow. Sure. Our responsibility in this project was to remove all obstructions to the windows to be replaced. Upstairs the front window was no problem. In the back up there, Anne wanted to clean off the back porch roof before the workmen came. Back in the day, that back window was how we got 4’ × 8’ sheets of wallboard into the upstairs for our big DIY project of finishing the upstairs. Back in the day, Bob and Chris helped us, with Bob doing the heavy lifting of pressing the wallboard over his head. I wonder if being suborned into this work had anything to do with them both shortly afterward leaving town? I digress. Anne wanted to clean off the porch roof one last time, while we still could. Moving downstairs to our bedroom, the big deal was removing the Levolor blinds on the windows. A couple of YouTube videos made it sound like an easy job. Something that I could do with one hand tied behind my back. Like I said, four hands later, we uninstalled the blinds. So much for YouTube U.
