Step 1: There are two ways of mounting these cordless mini blinds – inside or outside of the window frame. Once you decide how to mount, it’s time to mark the location of the mounting brackets. They should be about 2 inches from each end of the headrail. If you have more brackets, then space them evenly between the two brackets.
For Outside Mounting,
Hold the blind at the desired level and center it over the window framing. Now, mark the location of the brackets with a pencil. Position the brackets at the marked location and screw each bracket into the wall using screws.
For Inside Mounting,
Clip the mounting brackets onto the headrail. Hold the blind in the position and mark it. Now, drill the locations and fix the brackets using screws.
Step 2: Lift the headrail into the position. Push the rail upwards until the brackets snap onto the back of the headrail. Make sure the headrail is secured properly.
Step 3: Now attach the handle to the bottom rail. And voila, you are ready to use them.
Make sure you always rotate the slats before you raise or lower the blinds. This will prevent the wear and tear of the product while enhancing lifespan.
How to Operate?
To lower the blinds, hold the bottom rail/handle and pull it downwards. To raise these cordless blinds, slowly lift the bottom rail until you reach the desired location. Remember, while raising and lowering, don’t put too much pressure or effort on the handle, be gentle, or else it will damage the mechanism. And to tilt the slats, lower and raise the bottom rail slowly and smoothly if the blind is optioned with one-touch tilt.
