Hi due to the way they sit to make them sit right you really need a tool which you crimp it back into shape.

Currently due to low demand the tool is expensive, I have one myself and it works reasonably well (you still see a fine crease in the slat, but it does sit back perfectly and makes the blind usable again, without having to remove it.

Here is a video showing how the tool works, the cheapest place I have see the tool sold is here, the advantage being if it doesnt work you can send it back and get a refund from Amazon.

Let me know if you need any further assistance or advice regarding sorting out your bling.
