vertical blinds open but wont close

these are likely 60 years old. for the past 10 years ive had an issue where i had to put some force on the chain to make then open or close. last time i went to close them it wouldnt budge. i took them down and even once i got the ends apart, i can spin the rod manually one way with no issue but the other way wont spin.

what gives? only thing i can think of is one of the individual blind clips is stripped but that seems very difficult to ascertain
