pressing on the bottom of the bracket to release the locking tab.
If your blinds include optional extension brackets or
spacers, you will need to use them to determine mounting hole
locations in Steps 3 and 4.

slats wider than 2" will not function properly without the spacer.

• Position the center support bracket (if included) in
the center, if using only one. If more than one center support
bracket is included, space them evenly along the headrail. Make

Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between inside
surfaces of window frame at the top, middle, and bottom, and use
the narrowest width. Do not make any width deductions. Factory
will make the appropriate deductions.
Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from inside
surface at top of window to sill at the left, middle and right and
use the longest height. If you prefer blind not to touch sill,
deduct 1/4". If there is no sill, measure height to point where
blind is to reach.
Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" between the
outermost points where the blind is to be placed. For optimum
light control, this measurement should extend 3/4" beyond the
window opening on each side (or 1 1/2" for the entire width).
Measure exact distance to the nearest 1/8" from where top of
blind will be located to top of sill. If there is no sill or if
blind is to overlap window frame, measure to point blind is to
