Some things to note:
- Please check that all parts have been supplied before you begin to assemble your new Roman Blind.
- Ensure that the blind is mounted level for correct operation.
- The finished blind size is:
(i) OUTSIDE Mount: as per size ordered.
(ii) INSIDE Mount: width less 10mm, drop less 20mm
1. Position your blind
As per your order, determine the correct fitting location.
Roman blinds can sot inside the window frame or on the window frame or wall.
2. Install your brackets
Fix your brackets directly to the mounting surface, spaced evenly. Make sure all brackets are in a straight line so the track will attach easily.
If possible, mount the first bracket between the control mechanism and the first draw cord for maximum support.
Mount the bracket using the provided screws using pre-drilled holes if required.
3. Attach the blind to the brackets
Make a hole on each left and right side of the blind headrail, using a screwdriver. Make the holes roughly 80mm wide, so it’s easier to slide through the bracket.
Place up the blind headrail into the bracket screw, then tighten the ring and moor.
4. Operating the Blind
To lower the blind:
Pull gently downwards on all the operating cords together (to release the cordlock) then carefully raise the cords to the desired location. With a quick easy downwards motion, the cordlock will lock the cords.
To raise the blind:
Pull gently downwards until the desired location is reached, then with a quick easy upwards motion, the cord lock will lock the blind in that position.
Note: A Roman Blind way appear short in its drop on initial installation, however over a short period of time, the fabric will settle and sit at the correct drop length. Environmental conditions can also impact the settling process.
6. Attach the child safety device
Cord cleats must be installed to comply with Regulations. The cleats must be installed at least 1600mm above floor level, because a child is capable of unwinding a cord from a cleat. Fasten the cleats to the wall using the screws provided. Do not use tape or glue to attach the cleats.
Note: the cord must be wrapped around the cord cleat to prevent child strangulation. The cord must not form a loop longer than 220mm and should be wound entirely around the cleat.
Adjust Safety Cord Stop
To reduce the risk of strangulation to infants and toddlers, position safety cord stops before using the blind.
- Install blind according to the directions provided, making sure the headrail is securely fastened. Lower the blind to the maximum desired length, and lock the cords in place.
- Measure the distance from the headrail to the cord stops. If the cord stops are 25 to 50mm below the headrail, no further adjustment is needed. Your blind is ready to use.
- If cord stops ARE NOT 25 to 50mm below the headrail, loosen (but do not untie) the knot surrounding the cord stop.
- Push both the cord stop and the loosened knot toward the headrail until the cord stop is 25 to 50mm below the headrail. Hold the cord stop in place and pull firmly on the cord to retighten the knot. Repeat steps 2, 3 & 4 for each cord stop.
How to Adjust Pull Cord Length / Reassemble Breakaway Tassel
Our blind comes equipped with a breakaway tassel that prevents child strangulation. Should the breakaway tassel come apart, please refer to Step 4.
NOTE : To reassemble the breakaway tassel refer to Step 4, otherwise proceed with Step 1 to adjust pull cord lengths.
1. After determining the desired height of the breakaway tassel, open the
breakaway tassel. 2. Raise the breakaway tassel to desired height and tie knot to each pull cord ends.
NOTE : make sure all pull cord lengths is even before proceeding.
3. Cut excess pull cords, beneath knots, using scissors.
4. Place pull cords into grooves and snap breakaway tassel together to close.
