Aluminium Venetian Blinds Installation Inside Fit

Step 1 Inside fit

Unwrap your Venetian blind, take care not to bend any slats. Once they are bent you cannot bend them back into place without leaving a kink.

Using a pencil mark 9cm and 12cm in from the inside edge of the frame. Repeat at the opposite edge. Place the brackets in the middle of the marks and screw into place.

For blinds requiring more brackets space them evenly making sure they don’t interfere with the tape rolls inside the head rail.

Step 2 Inside fit

When fitting the blind, leave the blind pulled up.

On the front of the head rail at the top there is a lip. Hook this lip over the front of the bracket then push the back of the head rail up into the bracket until you hear it click into place.

Step 3 Inside Fit


This is how it should look once completed.

Pull the cords toward the middle of the blind, this releases the cord lock allowing you to lower the blind. Use the wand to control the angle of the slats.

OPTIONAL: Hold Down Clips

Hold down clips (if required) are mounted at the bottom of the blind to secure the blind in a fixed position. Hold down clips are especially useful to eliminate the possibility of the blind moving around in a breeze especially near doors.

Hold down clips can be easily released when you want to pull the blind up for cleaning purposes.

When mounting the Hold Down clips do not put too much tension on the blind to allow for some movement. Place the pin into the end caps of the venetian blind to lock into place.

Starting from the left side of the frame, using a pencil make a mark at 85mm in from the outside edge of the frame. Repeat at the opposite edge. Place the brackets in the middle of the marks and screw into place. Going 85mm in means the brackets will not interfere with any mechanisms.
