Horizontal Blinds are easy to install, in this short video you will learn to install them. A screwdriver is all that’s needed to install your blinds; or for an easier installation you can use a cordless screwdriver or a drill with a ¼” Hex head bit. Before starting, carefully unpack your blinds and mounting hardware. To familiarize yourself with the contents of your box, check the printed instructions included with your product.
Begin your installation by positioning your blind on the wall surface where you want it to be mounted. Mark the left and right outside edges of your blind along the bottom and sides with a pencil. Align the side and bottom of your left bracket along the inside of your pencil line and fasten to the wall with the supplied screws. Repeat on the right side. If you receive a center support bracket, mount it slightly off-center above a section of the headrail where it will not interfere with the operation of the blind cord.
Next, snap the included valance clips over the front lip of your headrail before mounting the blind. Space your valance clips evenly, avoiding contact with any mechanism inside the top of the blind. Slide your headrail into the brackets, this should go in easily. Completely close the covers on your brackets by pressing up on the bottom of your bracket with your thumbs while lowering the front part of the bracket until the cover snaps into place. To complete your installation, attach the side returns of your valance using the supplied L brackets. Snap your valance into your pre-installed clips, top first and then bottom.
Finish by lowering and testing your new blinds. To lower your blind, pull the cord toward the center of your blind and slowly raise your hand while holding onto the cord. To raise your blinds, pull the lift cord away from your blind at any angle. To tilt your slats, your blind will come with either a tilt cord or a wand. Either pull the tilt cord or rotate the wand to open and close your slats to the desired angle.
