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 front on

    The brackets are to be fixed with the longer edge to the architrave or wall, spaced evenly. If you have allowed for your blind to be mounted above the architrave, install the bracket 20mm below the height you originally measured to accommodate for the head rail.

  • Fixing brackets

    If possible, mount the first bracket between the control mechanism and the first draw cord for maximum support.

  • Making adjustments

    Mark if necessary and pre drill 1 hole per bracket (use the central hole in the bracket as it will allow for minor adjustments up and down). After drilling holes, secure the brackets with screws (wood screws have been provided).

  • Brackets side on

    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

    Take care when lifting the Roman Blinds to ensure that the head rail is fully supported at all times.

    Position the blind so it’s sitting evenly on top of the brackets and central to the window.

    Whilst holding the head rail in place, start from the central bracket and drill a screw upwards through the bracket directly into the head rail.

Step 3 - Installing the Cord & Cleat

  • The cleats must be installed at least 1600mm above floor level, because a child is capable of unwinding a cord from a cleat.

    Fasten the cleats to the wall using the screws provided. Do not use tape or glue.

    The cord must not form a loop longer than 220mm and should be wound entirely around the cleat.

Important

Cord cleats 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.
