    Mark bracket positions

    Mark the screw-hole locations

    Pick one of the metal mounting brackets and grasp it up against the head-jamb, keeping it properly aligned with a pencil line. Now use an awl to mark pair of screw-mounting holes.

    Repeat the same procedure for marking pair of screw-mounting holes for the second bracket at the other corner of the window.

    Check the brackets for level

    Use a level to check out the straightness of the two mounting brackets, holding it firmly across them.

    Insert a thin wood shim

    If the mounting brackets are out of level by about 1/8 inch or less, then you can simply skip this step and proceed to Step 7.

    If the mounting brackets’ distance is greater than 1/8 inch, slacken the screws on the higher-brackets and slide a wood-shim among the bracket and head-jamb. Now tauten the screws again and verify the mounting brackets for level.

    Clip the Cordless Blind into the brackets

    Use a screwdriver to loosen the small screws / brace screws located on the lower side of the mounting brackets. Now lift your Cordless Blind up to the head-jamb and gently hook the facade edge of the shade's head rail onto the protruding lip of the two mounting brackets.

    Sway the rear of the head-rail back in the direction of the window and fix the brace screws in order to lock the shade into the mounting brackets as shown in the image.

    Test the operation of the Cordless Blind

    Once you tighten the brace screws, check whether the Cordless Blind works properly or not. Then seize the center of the bottom-rail and gently pull it straight down in order to extend the shade all the way to the stool or window sill. Your Cordless Blind is all set now, enjoy!
