Step by Step Fitting Instructions
Blind brackets can be fitted in two different ways.
The brackets will be fixed to the ceiling or lintel.
The brackets will be fixed to each side wall inside or outside the recess.
Step 1: Fitting the brackets into the wall
1.1 Measure distances
Using a tape measure ensure the dinstance between any obstruction such as handles, radiators, etc (A) and the bracket (B) is at least 2cm so that you can operate them smoothly.
1.2 Mark the holes
Position the brackets where do you want to fit them and using a pencil make a mark for the holes.
1.3 Drill the holes
Using a drill make the holes using the marks you have previously done as reference. Use a sturdy ladder if you find it difficult to reach the lintel or ceiling.
1.4 Fix the brackets
Insert the plugs into the holes in the lintel or ceiling, and using a screwdriver fit the brackets into the lintel or ceiling with the screws.
Step 2: Fitting the headrail
Holding the fully-wound blind, insert the idle pin end into the bracket as shown.
With the Idle pin end in place. Insert the control end into the opposite bracket by depressing the pin end then pull down vertically until the control end clicks into position.
Troubleshoot: Fabric Run-Off
Diagram 1 shows the fabric running off from the right-hand side of the blind.
To correct the run-off, unroll the fabric, place a 25mm piece of sticky tape onto the tube (Diagram 2) at the opposite end of the blind to the run-off. Fully wind the blind up. Repeat until the fabric is no longer running-off.
