- Please check that all parts have been supplied before you begin to assemble your new Vertical Blind.
- Ensure that the blind is mounted level for correct operation.
1. Position your blind
Determine the correct fitting location for your blinds. Vertical blind brackets can be mounted directly into the top of the window recess or ceiling, or directly onto the face of the wall.
2. Installing your mounting brackets
- Face mount
Place the first bracket directly over the corner of the window with a max of 750mm between brackets. Adjust the length of the bracket so the louvers clear all window obstructions.
- Recess or Ceiling Mount
Mount the inside brackets directly to the ceiling or top of the window recess. The centre of the clip bracket indicates the centre of the louver hook. Keep this in mind as you will need to mount the bracket a minimum of 55mm in front of the window frame to avoid any window handles or obstructions. Evenly spread the brackets apart allowing only a maximum of 750mm between each other.
Mount the bracket using the provided screws using pre-drilled holes if required.
3. Attaching Blind to Brackets
Hook the back lip of the headrail under the bracket pin bracket then raise the front of the headrail and press up firmly until it snaps into place. Then secure with the front screw.
4. Attaching blades to track
Carefully unroll the vertical blades and clip them into the track one by one.
5. Operating the Blind
To rotate the louvers, gently pull the nickel-plated metal bead chain. To traverse the louvers, gently pull on the nylon cord. For proper traversing of the louvers, it is critical that the louvers be rotated to the open position prior to pulling on the cord to draw the louvers across the window opening.
If louvers become tangled or have moved out of alignment with use, re-adjustment is simple. With your hand, gently adjust the louvers so they are all facing the same direction. Make certain that the louvers are overlapping each other in the correct direction. Pull the metal bead chain until you hear a grinding sound. Give the chain an additional gentle pull. This grinding noise comes from the louver carriers realigning themselves. Now pull the chain in the opposite direction and all of the vanes will be aligned correctly.
To rotate the louvers, rotate the wand in the direction you want the louvers rotated. To traverse the louvers, rotate the louvers to the open position. Then, push or pull the wand to open (stack louvers) or close (unstack louvers) the blind. If louvers are installed with the front of the louver facing the wand will be in front of the louvers when the blind is rotated closed. If the louvers are installed with the back of the louver facing the wand, the wand will be in the back of the louvers when the blind is rotated closed.

This grinding noise comes from the louver carriers re-aligning themselves. Now rotate the wand in the opposite direction and all of the vanes will be aligned correctly.
6. Attach the child safety device
Secure the child safety device to the wall beside the blind, ensuring the chain is not too tight, as this may restrict smooth operation.
