Installing vertical blinds just takes a few simple steps. Save time and money by learning to do it yourself in this short video.

<p>Vertical blinds are easy to install, in this short video you will learn to install them. A screwdriver is all that&rsquo;s needed to install your blinds; or for an easier installation you can use a cordless screwdriver or a drill with a &frac14;&rdquo; Hex head bit.</p> <p>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. Your blind may come with a decorative cover called a valance. A valance is used to cover the top mechanism of the blind, and can be installed easily too. &nbsp;If your valance comes with a front insert, slide the insert into the edges along the front of your valance. Flip your valance over so that the top of your valance is facing down. &nbsp;Set your bracket clips 3&rdquo; in from the left and right side edges of your valance. &nbsp;Use your bracket clips as templates to mark starter holes for the screws. To make it easier to insert the mounting screws through your valance, pre-drill or tap starter holes through the top of the valance where your mounting screws will be inserted. &nbsp;Mark where your screws will go by lightly tapping starter holes through the top slot of the brackets. &nbsp;Fasten the supplied screws through the valance and into the mounting surface for each bracket. Hook the front of your headrail into the brackets and rotate back until it snaps into place The portion of the vertical blind that rotates is called a vane. To make it easy to install the vanes, begin by spacing the vane stems evenly by pulling the cord. Pull the chain to rotate the openings in the stems, so that they face you. Attach the first vane by gently sliding it up into the plastic stem until it snaps into place. Repeat until all vanes are attached.</p> <p>To complete your installation, install the safety bracket to keep your cord fairly taught. &nbsp;Install the bracket near the outside bottom of your window frame, where it will not interfere with the operation of your blind. Finish by testing your new blinds. &nbsp;Carefully pull down on the cord to slowly open your blinds, and then pull the cord again to completely close them. Pull the beaded chain to rotate your blinds. And that&rsquo;s it, if you still have any questions about the installation of your blinds just give us a call, it&rsquo;s that easy.</p>
