    • Accurate Neat Cuts

    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.

    Rubbish - avoid at all costs

          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.

                Haven't used the product yet, as I am waiting for my son to hang a blind for me - but would add that the service was excellent.

                    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.

                          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.

                                                        Bought one of these today - blades are out of alignment so it can't possibly cut the slat, and there's no way to adjust them back into alignment, so the this is a complete waste of money.

                                                              If you need to reduce the width of alluminium blinds, get this tool, it cuts perfectly, and accuratly not worth struggling with scissors, for £3.50 this produces a professional finish. 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.

We (eventually) found the best way was to lie the blind down, extended on a large bed, with the slats turned to the close position, and the curve in the slats bending upwards. Then you can carefully place each slat onto the cutter, hold gently and snip. We found that any other position caused the slats to be cut crooked, twisted, and with sharp 'tails' left behind, requiring snipping and filing.

This gadget is brilliant. I just needed to set the gauge to the width I wanted to cut off, insert the end of the blind and hey presto! What impressed me most about it was that it shaped the ends as it cut them so that did not look as though they had been cut. Using scissors only cuts them off straight. I also had to reduce the length of the blind so I used the cutter to cut up the left over slats into labels for plant pots - I shall be very popular with my gardening friends.

The end stop controlling the amount removed cannot be positioned closer than 2 cm from the cuting blade.
