How do i fix the plastic connector on my horizontal blinds?

I'm looking for a way to fix the now broken plastic connector that allows the horizontal blinds to swivel open and closed. i have two that are now broken, one near the bottom and one almost halfway up the window. Thanks in advance.Name:  20150515_072904.jpg

Hi Jesse and welcome to the forum,
It is hard to tell exactly what is broken from the pictures. If I guess, is there supposed to be a plastic post on each end of each shade that fits into a hole on each side?

Do these shades flex to allow you to remove one to show us a picture of a broken one and a similar picture of what it normally looks like?

Plastics vary in that some can be repaired with a new piece and the proper solvent, but others do not react to general solvents, like pvc cement. When gluing a new piece is not practical, I look to see if a bracket of sorts can be attached with a new post attached to the bracket.

Before you spend a lot of time, what is the cost of buying a new set?

Bud

Can you post more pics? I can't tell what I'm looking at. Are these built in blinds or just mounted in the window?
