Vertical 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.

From the point at the bottom of your window where you want your blind to hang, measure up to the top of the window, the length of the blind that you ordered. Make a pencil mark at the top of your measurement, and center your headrail on the mark. Make a mark, 4 inches in from each end of the headrail. Align the top of your left bracket along the inside of your pencil line and fasten to the wall with the supplied screws. Rotate the clip at the end of the mounting bracket to make it easier to install your screws. Repeat on the right side and for any additional brackets. Hook the front of your headrail into the bracket and rotate back until it snaps into place. The portion of the vertical blind that rotates is called the 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. Install the safety bracket to keep your cord fairly taught. Install the bracket near the outside bottom of your window frame, where it will not interfere with the operation of your blind.

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. If your valance comes with inserts for each section, slide the inserts into the edges along the front of each one. Insert the valance ends into the corners and attach to the front. Attach the included valance clips onto the headrail and slide the valance onto the clips. Finish by testing your new blinds. 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’s it, if you still have any questions about the installation of your blinds just give us a call, it’s that easy.
