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 mounting brackets to the top of the window away from the glass. For easiest installation we recommend positioning the brackets all the way to the front of your window opening. To make it easier to fasten your screws, create starter holes by tapping a screw with a hammer into any two side bracket holes. Fasten 2 screws to secure your first bracket. Install the right side bracket and any additional support brackets that may be included. 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, snap the 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.
