Pleated shades are easy to install, in this short video you will learn how to install a pleated shade with a standard cord lift. For easiest installation, a cordless screwdriver with drill bits and a pencil are all you will need. Before starting, carefully unpack your shades and mounting hardware.  Check the printed instructions included with your product to familiarize yourself with the contents of your box.

Begin your installation by positioning your shade on the wall or trim where you want it to be mounted.  Draw a line along the top of the headrail 2 ½” in from the left and right outside edges of your shade with a pencil.  Align the top of your brackets underneath your pencil lines.  For easiest installation, pre-drill your installation holes where marked. Install your bracket by using 2 of the supplied mounting screws per bracket. If mounting into drywall, consider using wall anchors. The proper number of brackets will be included based on the width of your shade. Install your headrail by inserting the front lip of your headrail onto the brackets and tilt up until the backside snaps into place. To prevent dangling cords you can install the included cord cleat on the window trim or the wall. Finally, test your shade by lowering and raising it using the lift control.  

And that’s it!  If you still have any questions about the installation of your shades just give us a call at 1-800-505-1905.
