Miniblinds Parts and Repair

I have a few miniblinds that need repairing (or replacement).

First, there is a part on the upper left corner where you attach a wand to tilt the blades. This part consist of a metal hook with a round sleeve. Looks like this.

On another window the wand came off and all I have is this. Is this repairable? What is this call? Can I attach a a new hook to it?

I also have a bracket that broke off. The big box stores do not carry blinds parts, and I think different 1" miniblinds have slightly different brackets, true?

Finally, it seems my miniblinds do not have any labels on them to tell you the manufacturer and model. I look all over one and couldn't find anything. Is there a secret location where I can see the manufacturer or model?

They look like vinyl mini blinds. You will never find a manufacturer since they are all made in China. You might find hooks, sleeves & brackets from other manufactures that will fit. You can put a small screw through the bottom hole in the bracket to keep the blind from falling.

I'd just go ahead and replace it. IMO it's too much trouble to repair them ..... and then wait for the next part to fail.
