Fitting location

Before commencing installation, determine the correct fitting location for your window. The location should correspond with your order information.

Please note – your finished size for a Face Fit Blind is as per the ordered size. For a Recess Fit Blind, the supplied width will be 10mm less than ordered to allow the brackets to fit inside the recess.

Step 1 – Installing the Mounting Brackets

Mounting Brackets should be fixed approximately 50mm from the end (left and right) of the blind’s headrail.

For blinds exceeding 1200mm width, an additional bracket should be positioned centrally for extra support.

Step 2 – Attaching the Bind Headrail

Position the front edge of the headrail into the front hook of the Mounting Bracket. Then follow these steps (see Fig. 5):

Gently push the headrail towards the window. Push it upwards and it will “snap” into position

Please note – If required for repositioning, you can remove the headrail by inserting a screwdriver into the mechanism to release the rail from the bracket (see Fig. 6).

Step 3 – Installing the Cord Cleat

Fasten the cleat to the wall using both of the screws provided. Do not use tape, adhesives, staples or nails to attach the cleat.

Please note – Cord Cleats must be installed at least 1600mm above floor level to comply with safety regulations.

Step 4 – (If ordered) Installing the Hold Down Clip

Using the screws provided, attach the base of the Hold Down Clip to the window recess/sill. Additional fixing is possible through the side of the clip (when suitable).

Once attached, snap the Hold Down Clip pin into the guide hole found on the end of the blind’s bottom rail.

Please note – after completing the installation, lower your blind to its full drop and leave for 24-hours to allow it to settle to its full length before use.

Read the Important Safety Information before operating your blind.
