How to Install Custom Sheer Shadings


 
 
 

Before you begin your installation:

Read all installation instructions!

  • 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 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.
 

Tools You May Need (not included):

  • Flat and Phillips head screwdrivers
  • Pencil
  • Level
  • Tape measure
  • Safety glasses
  • Pliers and/or scissors(heavy duty)
  • Drill/drill bits (3/32" drill bit may be used to pre-drill for screws)
  • Wrench (if using extension brackets)
  • 1/4" Hex nutdriver (optional for mounting screws)
  • Drywall anchors

Mounting Brackets:

Two mounting screws needed per bracket.

 

Optional Brackets:

Extension Brackets

(Offers clearance for obstructions) Outside mounting extension brackets will provide 3-3/16" clearance between the headrail and mounting surface. Assemble extension bracket as shown. Secure an extension bracket to each standard mounting bracket.

Spacers

Outside mounting spacers will provide upto an additional 1-1/2" clearance as shown. If spacers are used, longer screws may be required to ensure a secure installation.

 

Hold-Down Brackets

(Eliminates Sway) Ideal for doors, hold-down brackets prevent shade from swaying. Assemble as shown to each side of bottomrail.

Side-Mount Brackets

Alternative mounting method when no frame is available above the window for mounting. Use only if shade dimensions fall within 12" W x 12" L (corded) or 18" W x 16" L (cordless) to a maximum of 48" W x 120" L.

 
 
 

Step 1A

Mark the bracket locations - outside mount installation (installation outside window casing)

  • Measure headrail width.
  • End brackets should be approximately 2"-3" in from each end of the headrail.Space additional brackets evenly between the two end brackets and mark their location. Mount into wood whenever possible.
    NOTE:Ensure that bracket placement will not interfere with any components inside the headrail.
  • With a pencil, mark the mounting screw locations through the rear holes of the bracket, 2 per bracket. Use a level to ensure bracket alignment.
  • Go to Step 1B.

Step 1B

Install the brackets - outside mount installation (installation outside window casing)

  • Using pencil marks as a guide, start the screw hole by pre-drilling (wood and metal mounting surfaces only).
    NOTE: A minimum 1-1/8" flat vertical surface is required for the installation brackets. Extension brackets require 1-1/4".
  • Hold bracket with surface marked "top" facing up. Holding bracket in place, secure with screws, 2 per bracket.
  • Repeat for each bracket.
  • Use a level to confirm brackets are level.

Example: Installation on drywall using drywall anchors and included screws.

 

 
 

Step 2A

Mark the bracket locations - inside mount installation (installation inside window casing)

  • Verify that window casing has a minimum depth of 1"
  • End brackets should be approximately 2"-3" in from each end of the headrail.Space additional brackets evenly between the two end brackets and mark their location. Mount into wood whenever possible.
  • If flush mount is desired, place the bracket 3-1/4" back from the inside top of the window frame.
  • With a pencil, mark the drill hole locations through the tip holes of the bracket, 2 per bracket.
  • Go to step 2B

Step 2B

Install the brackets - inside mount installation (installation inside window casing)

  • Using pencil marks as a guide, start the screw hole by pre-drilling (wood and metal mounting surfaces only).
  • Hold bracket with surface marked "top" facing up. Holding bracket in place, secure with screws, 2 per bracket.
  • Repeat for each bracket.
  • Use a level to confirm brackets are level.

Example: Installation on a wood window frame using the included screws.

 

 
 

Step 3A

Install shade on brackets

  • Position the shading so that the front faces you.
  • Slide the headrail into the installation brackets so the edge of the headrail is between the lever and the bracket, as shown.
  • Firmly push the headrail into each bracket until it clicks and the lever snaps to the right side of the bracket.
  • IMPORTANT: Carefully pull on the headrail at each bracket to ensure it is installed securely.
