It does work !

Pros

  • Attractive Design

Cons

    Best Uses

      Easily used, determine how much slats need to be removed, set the gauge and voila.

      However, a bit fiddly and far easier and quicker to use a pair of decent scissors to cut the slats........and save money

        Great idea and worked well for first few slates but you had to check measurement every time as it kept slipping increasing the length. Blade got blunt even before I had finished first side of cuts!

                    The tool does the job well however it is possible to miss position the blind slat. The tool could be improved if there was a slat guide on each side so the blind is always postioned in line with the cutting tool. Excellent little tool overall.

                          Can only cut slats minimum 20mm each side

                          Have to mark with ruler and pencil anything less, and manually place on line to cut!!

                          Really time consuming!!

                          Would be better if could cut in 5mm increments!!

                                Worked well for me 8 blinds to trim.

                                But soul destroying as cutter will only cut 20mm each side using guide.

                                I needed 10 mm of each end to keep blinds even.

                                I had to mark each slat with ruler and pencil then cut.

                                Would be better design if allowed to cut to min 5mm each end

                                Bought this to trim a 180cm blind down to 172cm. Measure, set the cut length on the slat cutter and then just trim the edges off similar to using a toenail clipper. This tool costs very little, so it's hardly likely to be brilliantly made or to be manufactured of precision engineered steel, but it did a fabulous job and I now have perfectly fitted Venetian blinds at a fraction of the usual price for a custom job. I was delighted with it. I treated the tool with the tlc that a cheap item like this required and it served me very well. Thank you Dunelm.

                                      The blades of the first one I bought were misaligned, so wouldn't cut at all. The replacement managed to cut 6 slats before breaking. An extremely poorly made product.

                                                I had to take the first one back for a replacement. The part of the moulding that supports the leading edge of the moving blade broke away after 13 cuts. It could be made stronger very easily at no extra production cost. Ok, so there is no quibble when you take the fauly one back but I live 25 minutes drive from the shop so it cost more in fuel than the value of the product. More importantly, it meant I didn't get the job finished as planned.

                                                    Great product and good value for money.

                                                    Cutter is easy to use & give's the blind's a professionally finish.

                                                    Would definately recommend this if you need to shorten the width of the blinds.

                                                        Gives clean shaped edges. Easy to use. I practiced on the spare slats left after shortening the blind to get used to using the cutter, and to get the size exactly as I wanted it.

                                                          This was ok, I've used blind trimmers before so knew what to do, but this wasn't that sharp, and I had to finish off with scissors. They also dented the ends of the slats. I'd rather spend more on a better quality product.

Used mine for 3 blinds, would certainly cut another, any more may need a new cutter, but for £3.50 what that's very acceptable.
