Step by Step Fitting Instructions

  • Step 1

    If you’re fitting the blind outside the window recess ensure that measurement C in the diagram below is the same to ensure even window coverage.
    If you’re fitting the blind inside the recess you can top fix the brackets to the lintel or face fix the brackets to the window frame.

  • Step 2 (option) - If Top Fixing

    If you’re fixing the bracket to the underside of the window recess, measure and mark the distance (D), allowing for obstructions like handles that protrude into the recess area. Position the brackets approx 5cm from the ends of where the headrail is to be positioned. If more than 2 brackets are supplied, fit the additional brackets at equal spacing across the length of the blind. Please ensure fixings are suitable for the wall/surface to which you are mounting the brackets.

    The safety device must be installed at the maximum distance possible from the control mechanism to prevent looped chain from becoming slack. The chain should be taut. Place the safety device on the wall and mark the positioning of the 2 screw holes, then drill two suitable holes.
