With the outside mounting, you can extend the window size of any small window. Before starting the installation, unpack your blinds and mounting equipment and be sure that you have all the tools which you will be required while installing the blinds like – pencil, drill machine, measuring tape, and screw driver. To familiarize yourself with the contents of your box, check the printed instructions included with your product.
Below are the following steps which will guide you to install aluminum blinds outside mount.
- Measuring Window
Before installing the blinds what all of you need to do first is to measure the height and the width of your window. Simply take a measuring tape to measure the best proper dimension of your window. Also consider how much privacy and light control you want in order to get the right outside mount coverage and enough overlapping on the sides. Measure the length from the top of the window edge to where you would like the blind to end.
- Mark The Mounting
Align the brackets on the either side of the window frame. Make sure that they are aligned properly and are straight. Then take a pencil and mark the screw holes on each bracket.
- Attach The Brackets
Drill the holes and screw the brackets into place. If the window cavity is wide, then including a bracket in the middle is a better option to support the weight of the blind.
- Install The Blinds
Once you have finished drilling the brackets into the place, open the catches on the brackets. Then lock the catches to secure the blinds.
Your venetian blinds are ready to use. Now relax and enjoy your new window treatments. When the blinds are completely raised you can see the entire view but when they are closed you can block out the unwanted light.
