vertical blind repair

I bought through Amazon a vertical blind repair kit. I needed the comb gear. Fine. Got the blinds fixed and they work perfect. Problem solved.
However along with the 20 piece replacement parts are these plastics strips shown on the right. What are they for and how are they used?

I see them in the kit picture but no description.
No instructions with the kit ?

Do those long thin pieces slip horizontally through the top of a broken vertical blind? Sometimes you have a vertical blind that gets stripped at the top and then there's no way to keep it up in the clip.

PJ, those are in fact the ones I bought.
XSplr...No they are not. At least I can't see how. They do in fact have mending strips that will repair the clip hole but these aren't it.
I thought for sure Shadielady might chime in since she has answered questions similar to this.

Those strips connect between the carriers to keep the proper spacing between each vane.

So where are they located? Can't seem to see them in my unit.

I didn't know what they were so I did a search. Of course Johnam is right. Looks like they're just used in some vertical blinds, so maybe that's why you don't see any.

Yes, now I see how they are used.
And you're correct, my style does not use them.
