If more than 2 brackets are supplied, fit the additional brackets at equal spacing across the length of the blind. Please ensure fixings are suitable for the wall/surface to whit you are mounting the brackets.
Step 2: Tilt and hook headrail into bracket at point. Rotate the headrail into position until it clicks. To release the headrail, push the bracket at point.

Young children can be strangled by loops in pull cords, chains, tapes and inner cords that operate the product. Always use a safety device to keep cords or chains out of reach of children.To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep cords out of the reach of young children. Cords may become wrapped around a child’s neck. Move beds, cots and furniture away from window covering cords. Do not tie cords together. Make sure cords do not twist and create a loop.
The safety device must be installed at the maximum distance possible from the control mechanism to prevent looped chain from becoming slack. The chain should be taut. Place the safety device on the wall and mark the positioning of the 2 screw holes, then drill two suitable holes.
