Make sure that you have all tools and hardware needed
Check the installation surface (wall, ceiling, or
window frame) to ensure that you have suitable fasteners and tools
for the material.
Double check the headrail and shade for proper width
and length. If you are installing several sets of shades, be sure
to match them with the appropriate window.
Check the parts list shipped with the product to
confirm that you have the correct number of brackets.
Tools You May Need (not included):
The four cords on your shade do not operate the
shade. They are used to suspend the shade within a
circular window, and are needed for final installation.
Do not remove them from the shade. If any of the
cords fall out, simply fan the shade open and thread
the cord(s) through the cells at an equal distance
from each other.
Expand the Shade
The fabric is cut to the proper length, with doublesided tape preinstalled on one end. Remove the
backing from the double-sided tape.
Being careful not to trap the strings in the tape, fan
the shade open around the center plug to form a
circle. Press the ends firmly together.
Your shade can be installed as either an:
Inside mount (2A)—the entire shade fits inside the
window casing, or an
Outside mount (2B)—the shade attaches to the wall
around the window.
The mounting type is specified when ordering the
shade, and determines where the T-pins are installed.
