Fitting venetian blinds (Video audio transcript)

Hello and welcome to Web-blinds, I’m here to help you fit your new venetian blinds. Don’t worry it’s not complicated and our demonstration video will take you through step by step. Firstly just make sure you’ve got everything, you should have brackets, the number of these will vary depending on the length of your blind, these are packed separately at the end of your box, so make sure you take these out before throwing away your packaging. Screw and raw plugs and of course your blind. If you think you’re missing anything give us a call on 0845 604 9611. You will have decided where you are going to fit your blind and whether you’re going to top fix it into the lintel or face fix it into the window frame or wall. Remember you should always top fix if your window frame is upvc or there are any obstructions such as window handles.

Top fix
Firstly offer the blind up to your chosen fitting position, to determine where you’re going to fit the bracket, tilt it forward slightly so you can see all the chord controls, just make sure you aren’t fitting brackets over any of the workings. Then double check that any window handles won’t get in the way of the blind. Remove the blind and hold the brackets back up in place, mark the position where the holes are now to be drilled, drill the holes, insert the raw plugs and screw the brackets into place with the swing arm facing towards you. Open the swing arm as far as it will go, clip the headrail of the blind over the front lip of the bracket, then push the back of the headrail up into position. Close the swing arm until it locks into place while firmly holding the headrail. To operate the blind use the chord control by pulling slightly to one side to raise and lower the blind, and slightly to the other to lock it. The tilt rod allows you adjust the slat angle. Well done you’ve fitted your blinds, if you have any questions or need any further help please contact us on 0845 604 9611. Enjoy your new blinds.

Then double check that any window handles won’t get in the way of the blind. Remove the blind and hold the brackets back up in place, mark the position where the holes are now to be drilled, If you’re working with a wooden frame you won’t need to drill or use the raw plugs, but if you’re attaching it directly to the wall you will need to drill your holes, insert your raw plugs and place the bracket into position with the swing arm facing towards you. Open the swing arm as far as it will go, clip the headrail of the blind over the front lip of the bracket, then push the back of the headrail up into position.
