Where are you mounting your blind?

I am drilling into timber: Pre-drill holes and use the provided screws

I am drilling into plaster: We recommend use of the Ramset 10mm Grip Hollow Wall Anchor

I am drilling into concrete, stone, brick or tile: Use a Masonry drill and appropriate plugs, anchors or screws

Important

It is important to securely attach the brackets to the mounting surface. To achieve this the included screws must secure into wood studs, otherwise a fastener is required for secure mounting (not included).

Make sure the fastener you purchase is suitable for the weight of the product. If you are unsure, please contact us so we can suggest the correct fastener.

Step 1 - Installing the brackets

  • Brackets side on

    The brackets are to be fixed directly to the architrave or wall, spaced evenly. If you have allowed for your blind to be mounted above the architrave, measure the height you allowed for in your original measurements and mount your bracket at this point.

    Position the outer brackets approximately 50mm from the edge of the blind and space the remaining brackets evenly across the width of the blind.

  • Brackets front on

    Mark if necessary and pre drill 2 holes per bracket. After drilling holes, secure the brackets with screws (wood screws have been provided).

    Make sure all brackets are level.

Step 2 - Positioning the blind

Multiple blinds

If installing blinds side by side, ensure there is a 10mm gap between the blinds.

  • Positioning Roman Blind

    Care must be taken when lifting the Roman Blinds. Ensure that the head rail is fully supported at all times and that all brackets are in place before positioning.

  • Position the blind

    Lift the blind into place so it’s evenly spaced with the brackets and central to the window.

    Place the top front ridges of the head rail into the upper front edges of the bracket.

  • Click in place

    When the blind is evenly in place, push the back of the head rail towards the wall until it clicks into the bottom section of the bracket.

Step 3 - Installing the P Clip

  • Cord tensioner

    Position the tension device at the bottom of the chain loop, either to the inside of the window frame or in front of it.

    Install the tension device onto frame, making sure that the loop chain hangs with minimal tension.

Important

P Clips must be installed to comply with Child Safety Regulations and more importantly keep kids safe from possible strangulation.

Tips & Trouble Shooting

  • Large Blinds
    When installing large blinds, it helps to have someone support the blind when lifting into the brackets. This also helps prevent the head-rail from breaking and voiding the warranty.
  • I need to clean my blind
    To clean regularly dust with feather duster or brush attachment on vacuum.
  • Removing marks
    To remove marks we recommend Chux Magic Erasers, making sure not to scrub hard at the cloth.
  • Child Safety Laws
    To maintain child safety laws, be sure to attach the cleat and keep furniture and cots away from blind chains and cords.
