Read all installation instructions!
• 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.
• Do not remove the wrap on the roller until you have completed the installation. Leaving the shade rolled up completely will ease installation and reduce the risk of damage.
• For standard roller shades, the fabric will hang off the BACK of the shade, closest to the window. For optional reverse roller shades, the fabric will hang off the front of the shade. Be sure to note this when installing the mounting brackets.
• Cassette Valances come attached to the shade. Standard Valances require assembly.
• Phillips head screwdriver
• Tape measure
• Safety glasses
• Drill/drill bits (1/16" drill bit may be used to
pre-drill for screws)
• 1/4" Wrench (if using extension brackets)
• Hex nutdriver (optional for mounting screws)
• Drywall anchors
• Carefully measure the length of the shade from tip to tip. Deduct off approximately 1/4" for corded and 4" for cordless to ensure proper tensioning of the roller in the brakcets.
• Make sure that there is enough clearance for the rolled up shade and that it will not rub or catch on the window, window frame, or any obstructions when fully rolled up.
• Mark this distance on the mounting surface at the desired bracket height so that it is centered in the window opening.

slotted holes is recommended), two screws per bracket.

• Insert the front lip of the bottom rail handle into the top of the bottom rail of the shade. The handle will snap into place.
Measure exact distance between inside surfaces of window
frame at the top, middle, and bottom, and use the narrowest width.
Do not make any width deductions.
Measure exact distance from inside surface at top of window
to sill. If you prefer shade not to touch sill, deduct 1/4". If
there is no sill, measure height to point where shade is to reach.
Tip-to-Tip Measure is the common measure type for most roller
shades. Choosing this measure type will include the headrail
"pegs" that mount the shade to the wall or frame.
Measure exact distance between the outermost points where
the shade is to be placed. This measurement should overlap each
side of window frame by at least 1-1/2". Factory makes no
deduction from your shade width dimensions.
Measure exact distance from where top of shade will be
located to top of sill. If there is no sill or if shade is to
overlap window frame, measure to point shade is to reach.
Cloth Measure is uncommon and should only be used for Outside
Frame applications. The headrail is wider than the cloth of
the shade which causes the "pegs" to extend beyond the width
of the shade material. This total distance is 1-3/8" wide, or
a gap of 11/16" on each side of the shade material.
