Purchase #8 self-tapping screws. Drill pilot holes as necessary.
Step 1. Determining Mounting Method
Your shade has been custom manufactured to your specifications as either an Inside Mount (inside the window recess) or Outside Mount (on window frame or wall)
  1. Inside Mount A minimum of 3/4" window recess is required
  2. Outside Mount if mounting above trim or other obstructions (crank handles, etc.) Spacers’ blocks may be required.
Inside Mount
Outside Mount
Step 2. Attach Bracksts to Mounting Surface
Inside Mount
Mount the brackets to the top of the window frame and 2 1/2" in from the edge of the window frame. Make sure the brackets are aligned with one another.
Outside Mount
Center the shade over the window opening at the desired height. Mark the position of the ends of the head rail on the wall. Attach the mounting brackets to the wall 2 1/2" in from the marks making sure the mounting brackets are level with one another.
Step 3. Inserting the Head Rail
Inside Mount
Firmly push the back of the head rail into the tab of each bracket. Push up on the bottom rear portion of the head rail to engage the hook at the bracket front.
Outside Mount
Engage the hook on the bracket front with the ridge on the top surface of the head rail. Push up on the bottom rear portion of the head rail until the head rail snaps into place.
Step 4. Attaching the Optional Hold Down Brackets
Hold down brackets are used on the ends of the bottom rail to keep the blind from swaying. They are used on applications such as doors or on frequently opened windows to prevent the wind from blowing the shade around. They are available at no extra charge but must be requested at the time of order placement.
CAUTION:  Check to be sure that the bracket and head rail are properly secured before operating the shade.
Step 5. Operating Your Shade
To lower the shade, pull the cord down and toward the center of the shade to unlock the cord. While holding the cord toward the center, lower the shade to the desired position. Move the cord back past the outside edge of the shade and release to lock the shade into position.
Step 6. Child Safety
  1. Clamp or Clothes Pins
  2. Cleat
  3. Tie the cord to itself
  4. Tie-down device

Young children can become entangled and strangle in cords. Keep all cords out of the reach of children. To avoid strangulation, use these devices.
Step 7. Cleaning and Care
All you need to keep these shades looking new is a brush-type vacuum attachment or feather-duster for dusting; just stroke lightly over the shade. To clean with water, use a lukewarm damp sponge and wipe with firm, light strokes.
Note: With time, pleats may settle. Pleats at the bottom will be fuller than those at the top. Shades that are raised regularly will be less subject to pleat settling and will maintain a more crisp appearance.
Horizontal Blinds
How to Install Horizontal Blinds
Congratulations on your purchase of a horizontal blind. Your blind has been custom made to your specifications and is one of the finest window treatments available. Before you un wrap your blinds, please take a few moments to read these instructions. When using tools, make sure you have proper eye protection. With careful installation and periodic cleaning, your blinds will provide you with many years of trouble free service.
Tools You Willl Need
  1. Tape Measure (metal or wood)
  2. Pencil
  3. Screwdriver
  4. Drill and 1/4'' Hex head bit
  5. Level (optional)
  6. 1/16'' or 3/32'' drill bit (optional)
All parts listed are not included with every blind
  1. Right hand end bracket
  2. Left hand end bracket
  3. Center support bracket
  4. Short extension bracket (optional)
  5. Long extension bracket (optional)
  6. Standard or delux valance
  7. Valance clips
  8. Hold down bracket with screws
  9. Hold down pins
  10. Wand (optional)
Step 1. Determining Mounting Method
Your blind was made to be installed as either an inside or outside mount. Follow the instructions that apply to your blind. Unpack your new blind and check the packaging carefully to assure all parts have been removed before discarding the shipping containers.
Inside Mount
Outside Mount
For an Outside Mount, hold the blind level and centered against the window casing. Mark the casing with a pencil just below the head rail on each end. Also mark the window casings 1/8" beyond the ends of the head rail. The right and left installation brackets will be placed on these marks. Remember to keep head rail level-even if your window is not! Very Important for optimum blinds function. Outside Mount

For an Inside Mount make sure the head rail is level and clear of obstructions. Make pencil marks below the head rail on each end. The right hand and left hand installation brackets will be placed on these marks. Remember to keep head rail level- even if you window is not. Inside Mount

For a Ceiling or Overhead Mount, hold the blind against the ceiling centered in front of the window and make pencil marls 1/8" beyond the ends of the head rail. The right and left installation brackets will be placed on these marks. Ceiling or Overhead Mount

Step 2. Attach Brackets to Mounting Surface
Caution: Use proper screws the mounting screws included are for wood or sheet metal surfaces. For other surfaces obtain appropriate fasteners and install them according to the manufacturer's instructions.

The end brackets may be mounted using two screws in several different orientations depending on your needs:

  1. Inside the Jams (inside mount)
  2. To the outside face of the window casing or wall (outside mount).
  3. Overhead: either to the top inside of the window frame (inside mount) or to the ceiling. (outside mount)
Inside Mount
Outside Mount
Ceiling Mount

Use proper screws. Two screws are supplied for each mounting bracket. These are suitable for sheet metal and wood surfaces. On wood surfaces pre-drill homes for the screws using a 1/16" diameter drill bit or make a starter hole with a finishing nail and hammer or awl. One sheet metal surfaces use a 3/32" diameter steel drill bit. For plaster, drywall, concrete, stone, brick or tile use appropriate plugs, anchors or screws of the proper type and length. Follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Open the brackets swivel cover with your thumb or a screwdriver. Hold the bracket against the mounting surface and align it with the pencil marks. Using a pencil, mark the location of the two diagonal holes for the mounting screws. Drill holes for the screws using one for the recommended drill bits. If working on a wood surface, locate the screws at least 1/4" from the edge of the wood to prevent splitting. Open cover with screwdriver.

HINT: Smearing a little bar soap on the screw threads will make them drive more easily.

Center support brackets are supplied if required. Space multiple brackets evenly along head rail. Center support brackets must be positioned so that they do no interfere with the operation of the blind cord and ladders. Mount center brackets level with the end brackets.

Center Support Bracket


Snap the valance clips over the front lip of the head rail before mounting the blind to the installation brackets. A valance clip is furnished for every ladder. Install the valance clip next to each ladder. If the clips are mounted directly in line with the ladders, they may catch on the cords inside the head rail.

  • Faux Wood
  • Real Wood
  • 1/2'' Aluminum
  • 1'' Aluminum
  • 2'' Aluminum
  • 1'' Premium Wood

Insert the head rail into the end brackets. If an auxiliary support bracket is used, be sure that it is properly engaged with head rail.

Close the swivel covers to lock the head rail in place.
In the case of 2" blind brackets, it is important to make sure the swivel end is engaged on the lip on bottom of bracket.

If your blind is not fitting snugly left to right, open the mounting brackets and remove the head rail and pry out the tab(s) at the ends of the head rail a bit with a screw driver. If your blind fits too tightly, press the tab(s) in with a pair of pliers. Now reinstall the head rail and close the mounting bracket covers. This option only applies on some headrails.

Optional Projection Brackets
If you ordered the optional projection brackets, mount them to the wall or window using two screws. Attach the installation and center brackets using two machine screws and nuts per bracket.

Step 3. Valance Installation
Deluxe Valances With Valance Channel. (optional)
On outside mount blinds, the valance channel is notched or pre-formed on the backside to allow the ends of the channel to be formed into returns. Bend ends back to form returns.

Starting at one end, place the upper lip of the valance into the top groove of the valance bracket. Carefully snap the lower lip into the bottom groove on the bracket. Repeat this at each bracket. Valance return length may be trimmed with scissors if necessary.

Top Groove

Bottom Groove

Standard Valances without Valance Channel
Place the lower edge of the slat into the center groove in the valance bracket. Now carefully snap the upper edge of the slat into the top groove in the bracket. Repeat this at each bracket across the blind. The lower valance slat is installed in the same manner by placing its lower edge into the lower groove in the valance bracket and carefully snapping the upper edge into the center groove of the bracket. The slats may be trimmed with scissors if necessary.

Upper Valance Slat Installation

To bend returns, place the slats on a table with the concave (back) side up. Measure and mark the return size on each end of the slat. Place a ruler (or other straight edge) on the mark and hold it firmly in place with one hand. Place the other hand under the slat and bend it straight up. Install the valance as previously described. Bending Valance Returns

Step 4. Hold Down Brackets
Note: Not recommended for single control blinds. Recommended for OB mount blinds (i.e.: door installation)

Holds down brackets are used to keep the bottom of the blind from swaying and were supplied if requested when ordering the blind. Some blinds have bottom rail end caps with a hole in the center; on these blinds, push a hold down pin into the hole in the end caps.

  • Lower blind completely. Be sure bottom rail is level.
  • Place hold down brackets on bottom rail hold down pins(slotted bracket on the right, slot down).
  • Mark bracket location on window frame.
  • Remove brackets and raise blind.
  • Drill holes for bracket screws and mount brackets.
  • To secure bottom rail, insert hold down pin into un slotted bracket first.
  • Then snap opposite pin into slotted bracket.

Step 5. Operating A Blind With Two Controls
  • TILT: Turn wand or pull string to tilt slats to desired angle.
  • RAISE OR LOWER: Slats should be fully open, not tilted, when raising or lowering. To raise blind, pull lift cord straight down. To lower blind, pull cord toward center of blind and slowly raise your hand while holding onto the cord.
  • LOCK: When cord hangs straight down, the cord lock holds the blind in position.
  • CAUTION: When blind is raised, keep lift cords away from door openings to prevent tripping hazard.

Step 6. Child Safety
  1. Clamp or Clothes Pins
  2. Cleat
  3. Tie the cord to itself
  4. Tie-down device

Young children can become entangled and strangle in cords. Keep all cords out of the reach of children. To avoid strangulation, use these devices.
Step 7. Cleaning and Care
We recommend routine dusting with a soft brush, cloth or clean them with a vacuum cleaner's brush attachment. If blinds become soiled, they may be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened with warm water. You may want to add a small amount of mild, non-abrasive liquid soap (I e. Dove, Ivory, etc.) to warm water. It is also possible to have your blind professionally cleaned. We advise you to utilize professional window treatment cleaning services if you elect to have your blinds cleaned by methods other than those suggested above. Our warranty does not cover damages caused by cleaning services.

Plastic or lead anchor insert.
Plastic anchor insert for lightweight blinds only, in drywall, paneling, etc.
Hollow Wall Anchors (not supplied)
Hollow wall anchor for heavy blinds.
Hollow wall toggle bolt for heavy blinds.


Step 1. Determining Mounting Method
Your natural wood shade is custom made using the finest materials available. Each shade includes all necessary installation hardware and has been checked for operation and alignment. The following instructions are for the three most common installation types.
Inside Mount
Outside Mount
Step 2. Attach Brackets to Mounting Surface
Inside Mount
Inside Hang (ceiling mounted) - Shade is measured and assembled to fit inside window casement with mounting bracket that is installed to top of casing with screws placed at opposite corners. The wing nuts are removed. The screws slide through the slots on the head rail and are secured by a wing nut.
Ceiling Mount
Outside Hang (ceiling mounted) - Shade is measured and assembled to overlap the window casing. The mounting brackets are then installed to the ceiling by means of screws or toggle bolts placed at opposite corners. Remove wing nuts. The screws slide through the head rail slots and are secured with wing nuts.
Outside Mount
Outside Hang (wall mounted) - Shade is measured and assembled to overlap the window casing. The mounting brackets are then installed to the wall by means of screws or toggle bolts placed at opposite corners. Remove wing nuts. The screws slide through the head rail slots and are secured with wing nuts.
Step 3. Natural Shade Operation & Adjustment
Yarn and wood used on these fabrics have been specially selected. The wood slats retain the grain texture and irregularities inherent in natural wood of this type. The selection of pattern and yarns combines this natural wood with the most contemporary colors for a truly unique window fabric.
Shade Operation
Both Roman & Roll-Up shades has the same basic hardware and operating procedure. Cords, whether installed on the left or right side have the same locking mechanisms. To raise the shade merely pull on the cord and release the cord when the shade is at the desired height. To lower the shade, pull the cord to the center of the shade with a slight tug. Then keep tension on the cord at that angle and slowly let the cord go up, thus lowering the shade. If the shade should bind, check the cord alignment over the pulley (under valance).
Shade Adjustment & Alignment
Your shade has been carefully inspected and adjusted by the factory, but minor adjustments may be necessary once it has been installed. The yarns in your woven shades are flexible enough to permit minor adjustment horizontally and vertically for proper alignment on your window. If the bottom of your shade becomes uneven, merely pull down on either side to stretch the yard and align the shade, But Be Careful. Pull Lightly!
If your shade doesn't lie flat against the wall or window, roll the shade tightly from the bottom and twist roll clockwise on one side, counter clockwise on the other, and this will align yarns and slats. Should a strand of yarn slip off the edge of the shade, remove the strand from the top to bottom - this will in no way affect the strength of the shade.
Step 4. Child Safety
  1. Clamp or Clothes Pins
  2. Cleat
  3. Tie the cord to itself
  4. Tie-down device

Young children can become entangled and strangle in cords. Keep all cords out of the reach of children. To avoid strangulation, use these devices.
Step 5. Cleaning and Care
Periodic vacuuming with a brush attachment is all that is normally needed to insure lasting beauty. It is recommended woven woods be treated with stain repellent to minimize cleaning. With proper care and maintenance, natural woods should last for years.

Metal Surfaces - Pre-drill holes and use short metal screws.
For Concrete, Stone, Brick or Tile - Use a carbide drill and appropriate plugs, or anchor with screws.
Step 1. Determining Mounting Method
Your roman shade is custom made using the finest materials available. Each shade includes all necessary installation hardware and has been checked for operation and alignment. The following instructions are for the three most common installation types.
Inside Mount
Outside Mount
If shade is for inside window installation, and if the window frame is not even or level, use shims to make sure that the head rail will be level when installed.
Even if the head rail is mounted on the frame, wall or ceiling, it must be level, so the shade will operate properly. Also make sure that shade is the proper length and that it will clear any obstructions. (Spacers or extension brackets may be required for shade to clear any obstructions.)
Step 2. Attach Brackets to Mounting Surface
Inside Mount
Note: If installation brackets (included) are used for inside mount, refer to “Ceiling Installation”. Otherwise, see below for mounting instructions. Inside Hang (ceiling mounted) - Shade is fabricated to fit inside the window casement.Hold head rail level against the top of the casement, lower the shade to make sure it is the correct height, and that shade clears any obstructions. (Shimming may be required to level shade.) While holding the head rail firmly against the casement, drill 1/16" pilot holes into the casement through the small round holes in the head rail. (Do not drill pilot holes through the slots in the head rail.) Use the 2-inch wood screws to attach the shade to the window casement. If shim is used to level head rail, make sure that it is in place before tightening screws.
Ceiling Mount
Outside Hang (ceiling mounted) - Shade is fabricated to overlap the window opening. The installation brackets are mounted to the ceiling. Hold head rail against the ceiling. Lower shade, check for correct length. Position shade so that it clears any obstructions. While holding the head rail against the ceiling, lightly mark on the ceiling surface the positions of the head rail slots.

Hold each installation bracket against the ceiling and mark for two diagonal screw holes. Position brackets to line up with centers of slots in head rail. Drill pilot holes and use appropriate fastener screws, wall anchors or toggle bolts to mount brackets. Push the head rail up onto the brackets so that the threaded posts on the brackets fit through the slots in the head rail. Secure the head rail to installation brackets by tightening wing nuts.

Outside Mount
Outside Hang (wall mounted) - Shade is fabricated to overlap the window opening. The installation brackets are mounted to window frame or wall. Hold head rail level. Lower shade, check for correct length, and that shade clear any obstructions. (Spacers or extension brackets may be required to clear any obstructions.) While holding the head rail level against the window frame or wall, lightly mark on the mounting surface the positions of the head rail slots.

Push the head rail up onto the brackets so that the threaded posts on the brackets fit through the slots in the head rail. Secure the head rail to installation brackets by tightening wing nuts.

Step 3. Roman Shade Operation & Adjustment
Shade Operation
Your shade is equipped with a locking mechanism that holds the shade at the desired height. To raise or lower the shade, pull and angle the lift cords toward the middle of the shade. A slight tug will release the cord lock allowing shade to be moved up or down. To lock the shade at the desired height, angle the lift cord outward to the side to engage the cord lock. If the shade should bind during raising or lowering, check the lift cords for proper alignment on the pulleys (under valance).
Shade Adjustment & Alignment
Your shade has been carefully inspected and adjusted to operate properly. Once installed however, minor adjustments may be necessary. The yarn in your Roman Shade is flexible enough to straighten to window opening by stretching the yarn. Pull down on the short side on the bottom to eliminate unevenness and align the shade. If the shade is not flat when lowered, roll the shade tightly from the bottom and then twist the roll from the ends (one end clockwise and the other counter-clockwise) to align yarn and slats. Should a strand of yarn slip out from the edge of the Roman Shade fabric, it may be removed with scissors (from top to bottom of shade) without affecting the strength of the shade.
Step 4. Child Safety
  1. Clamp or Clothes Pins
  2. Cleat
  3. Tie the cord to itself
  4. Tie-down device

Young children can become entangled and strangle in cords. Keep all cords out of the reach of children. To avoid strangulation, use these devices.
Step 5. Cleaning and Care
Occasional dusting or vacuuming with a brush attachment is all that is necessary to keep your shade looking new.

Step 1. Determining Mounting Method
Your vertical window blind is custom made using the finest materials available. Each blind includes all necessary installation hardware and has been checked for operation and alignment. The following instructions are for the two most common installation types.
Inside Mount
Outside or Ceiling Mount
Inside Mount Mounted on Horizontal Surface (Ceiling or Upper inside Door/Window Frame)
Mounting clips may come to you attached to the mounting brackets. The brackets are not used with this way of mounting. Loosen and remove the screw on the bottom of the bracket. If your bracket has two screws, remove both of them. Do this on all brackets. Discard brackets and adjusting screws and keep just the clips.
You will need to make marks on two things. One is your door/window frame or ceiling and the other is the valance. For marks on your door/window frame or ceiling, hold your valance up, centered over door or window and mark the width of your valance (Width Mark). At the valance width marks you just made, measure out 1" from wall and make pencil marks (Depth Marks)
Center and clip over the third groove and about 4" or less from each end. For blinds over 62", evenly space all additional clips and mark all hole locations.
Hold valance up. Line back of dust cover (on valance) up with Depth Marks. Drill holes through valance at the mounting hole marks. If mounting into dry wall, use wall anchors (not included) and push into drilled holes. Hold valance and clips up to the holes and drive screws through clip and valance and into your ceiling or sill.
Snap head rail in pace by inserting front edge in mounting clips and rotating back. (note: Pull cord on right for right draw and left for left draw). To remove blind, release head rail by inserting a screwdriver between head rail and release tab.
Outside Mount Mounted on a Vertical Surface (Wall, Window or Door Frame)
Mark "Height" on wall at Louver Length + 2". Center head rail over window at "Height" mark. Make about a 2" long mark on wall about 4" in from each end. For blinds over 62" wide, make marks on wall for every bracket. Spaced evenly
Wide Brackets
0 - 62" 2
62" - 98" 3
98" - 134" 4
134" - 170" 5
170" - 192" 6
Hold brackets up to 2" marks and mark mounting holes on wall. You may find it easier to mark wall and mount wall brackets, if the clip is twisted out of the way. For brackets with two screws, remove one screw and loosen the other then twist clip 1/4 turn.
Droll holes at these marks. if mounting into drywall, use wall anchors (not included) and push into drilled holes. Screw brackets into place. Use 2 screws per bracket.
Twisted all clips back to original position and tighten all screws. Snap head rail in place by inserting front edge in mounting clips and rotating back. (Note: Put cord on right for right draw and on left for left draw). To remove blind, release head rail by inserting a screwdriver between head rail and release tab.
Step 2. Attaching the Louver or Vanes
Install the Louvers
Rotate stems so that you can see through the stem slots. Push louvers up into stem. Gently pull down on louver to insure it catches on stem hook. For cloth louvers all hems should face the same direction. If louvers will not rotate, check to see if all louvers are overlapped the same. If not, remove louvers and carefully reinstall them. Remove louver by inserting credit card.
Install Bottom Hardware (optional)
For Fabric Louvers With Sewn In Weights: Chains may be installed to the front or rear of the louvers. Slide clip onto fabric louver at the location shown to left. For Fabric Louvers With Standard Weights: If weights are not sewn into pockets, insert weights in pockets at bottom of louvers. Attach clips to front holes of weights starting with louver at the stationary end of the blind. At the leading louver, drape chain across face louver and attach clips to back holes of weights. Thread loose end of chain through one loop on the tie down clip. Join chain ends using chain connector. Attach clip to window casing or floor with screw.
For PVC Louvers With Keyholes Located At The Center Of The Louver: Keep spacing with spacer card. Attach tie down clip to end of bead chain. Screw clip to floor.
Step 3. Attaching the Tension Pulley
Tension Pulley (Standard)
To Avoid Strangulation, A cord Weight or Cord Tension Pulley should be attached to the cord and then secured to the wall. Two pull tassels should be attached to the chain.

Install Cord Tension Pulley, Note: Do Not Pre-Drill Holes.For inside mounts, pulley should be positioned toward back of sill so that it will not interfere with the louver rotation.
Cord Weight and Cord Clip With EZ Open Option (Optional) Install Cord Clip, Position cord clip on wall above the cord weight and screw into position.
Shorten Cord
If the cord is too long you may adjust it. Traverse louver holders to stacked position. Grasp knot located along the inside of the track and pull out excess cord. Re-knot and cut-off excess.
Remove Cord Twist
After you mount your blind, your cords may be twisted together. Follow these instructions to untwist them. Open blind all the way. Pull out the knot that is farthest away from the end with the cords and chain. Use needle nose pliers, if you have one, to get at the knot. Hold the cord near the knot and the cord near the drive end and twist both of them in the same direction. Try twisting one way and then the other until you find the right way to untwist the cord. Pull the cords on the end of the blind to get the knot back inside the blind.
Step 4. Valance Cover (optional)
  1. Valance
  2. Valance Corners
  3. Valance Returns
  4. Valance Clips
For Round Corner Valance
Unfold fabric from valance ends. Push the side of the corner onto the valance ends. It should fit snug behind the trim.Wrap fabric around the corners and slide valance returns over fabric and onto corner.
Valance Corner Assembly
For standard corner valance insert valance ends into valance corners and attach to valance.
Attach Dust Cover Valance
for outside mounting snap one clip onto head rail about 2" from each end. Space remaining clips evenly on head rail. Slip valance into clips.
Single Valance: Outside Mount
Snap valance clips (1) on to head rail (2) about 2" from each end. Space remaining clips evenly onto head rail. Slide valance onto clips. Note: For clip with notches on its tab, break the tab along notch so that the valance will fit better on window.
Double Valance: Outside Mount
Clip valance hangers (1) to the back of the double valance so that the "T" (3) section of the hangers fit into the trim groove (4).Install the lower edge of the hanger into the lower slot as shown.
Flex the upper edge of the valance hanger (1) to snap it into the top back edge of the upper valance (3). Repeat for returns, one hanger per return.Mount finished double valance onto head rail same as single valance.
Step 5. Vertical Blind Operation
Rotate the vanes by pulling the chain until the vanes are in the desired position. Always rotate the vanes with the chain to the open position before you open the blind with the traverse cord. To align the vanes, rotate them from front to back by pulling the chain once in each direction. Pull the traverse cord to open and close the blind. open the blind before traversing the vanes will jam if you traverse them while the blind is closed.
Step 6. Child Safety
  1. Clamp or Clothes Pins
  2. Cleat
  3. Tie the cord to itself
  4. Tie-down device

Young children can become entangled and strangle in cords. Keep all cords out of the reach of children. To avoid strangulation, use these devices.
Step 7. Cleaning and Care
Fabric Vanes: Periodic vacuuming will keep the fabric fresh. Although fabric vanes are treated with a soil repellant, spot clean any stains by applying a mild soap and warm water solution with a sponge or cloth. General rules when cleaning any vanes are to clean one vane at a time. Detach one vane and place it on a flat surface. Clean as specified. Attach the vane back on the head rail. Soaking vanes may cause them to lose their seizing, fire retardant, and soil repellant additives. Never use hot water to clean vanes. Never machine wash or dry clean the vanes. Never use a solvent cleaner. Never use a dryer, or hang or fold vanes over a clothes line. Never wring crush vanes to dry them.
PVC Vanes: Apply a mild soap and cold or warm water solution with a soft cloth or sponge. Abrasive or strong cleansers may scratch or mar the vanes surface. Dry with a cloth towel to avoid water marks.
