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. And that’s it, If you still have any questions about the installation of your blinds just give us a call, it’s that easy.

IF THIS GAL CAN DO IT...WELL I OUGHT TO BE ABLE TO.
I need to know how to install the hold down brackets on a faux wood blind
Seeing actual install far superior to the tiny pictures on instruction sheet
See below
clearly explained, along with good video support. thank you
i have never installed blinds before. The blinds I ordered did not come with instructions. The manufacturer's website was horrible so I searched for another; found your site and it was great. My blind didn't come with side mounts either which they should have in order to have a finished look to an outside mounted blind. Great video!!
It was helpful for mounting in a window, but not on a glass door. Could use some info, like how much distance is needed above the mounting bracket for door mounting.
GREAT VIDEO
no
good for helping measure
very informative
Made it very very simple.
what are the plastic V shaped for, not the valance clips? Are the plastic blocks for use to stand out from the window casing when not mounting to the casing? What are the plastic L shaped for if the metal are for the valance?
Gave east visual.
She went a little fast and I wasn't able to see the valance.
