Installing Valance Clips

 

Step A

Install the valance clips—DesignLine™, Traditional, and Transitional (outside-mount)

 
  • NOTE: Headrail mounting shown in installed position to show typical mounting bracket locations.
  • Position one clip at each end of the headrail next to the headrail mounting bracket locations. Make sure that the clips do not interfere with the mounting brackets.
  • Lower the clip into the top channel of the headrail at 45° angle to the headrail so the locking tabs fit into the channel.
  • Rotate the clip in the channel so that it locks into place.
  • Space remaining clips evenly between the ends, not more than 30" apart.
 

Step B

Install the valance clips—DesignLine™, Traditional, and Transitional (inside-mount)

  • NOTE: Valance clips must be installed prior to headrail installation.
  • Position one clip at each end of the headrail, next to the headrail mounting bracket locations. Make sure that the clips do not interfere with the mounting brackets.
  • Lower the clip into the top channel of the headrail at a 45° angle to the headrail so the locking tabs fit into the channel.
  • Rotate the clip in the channel so that it locks into place.
