How to Install Stock Metal Blinds


Before you begin your installation:

Read all installation instructions!

IMPORTANT: If bound, do not remove binding until the blinds are installed in the window.

  • Make sure that you have all tools and hardware needed for installation.
  • 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 blinds for proper width and length. If you are installing several sets of blinds, 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.
