Wooden Blinds Fitting Instructions

1. Fixing the brackets

Extend hinged door on each bracket as far as it will go. Identify leand right brackets from light Land R markings inside. Position the bracket and mark two holes according to type of fixing chosen

Recess FIT (Inside Mount)

Attach the two installation brackets inside the window frame, flush against each side and the top of the window frame. Align the front edges of the installation brackets.


Exact FIT (Outside Mount)

First, measure the blind and mark on the face or architrave where to attach the two installation brackets.

2. Installing the Blind

Slide the head rail into the brackets and close the brackets to secure the blind.

3. Installing the Valance

Depending on the exact blind ordered, you may have received valance returns. If your blind has been supplied with valance returns, screw one end of the valance return clip onto the valance using screws provided.
Align the edge of the valance return with the valance then screw the other end of the valance clip onto the valance return.

4. Child Safety

Breakaway Cord Condenser - Safety

A breakaway cord condenser comes pre-fitted to the lift cords, so when a horizontal force is applied to the cords entering the condenser, it will safely break apart thereby eliminating any hazardous loops.

If the cord condenser becomes separated:
Firstly, untwist and untangle the cords.
If the blind features 2 cords: press the cord condenser together until it is fully closed.
If the blind features 3 cords: Place the loose cord into the opening in one half of the cord condenser and press the cord condenser together until it is fully closed.
If the blind features 4 cords: Place one of the loose cords into the opening of one half of the condenser, next place the remaining loose cord into the opening in the other half, then press the cord condenser together until it is fully closed.



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 ofthe 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 and at least 1.5m from the floor. Place the safety device on the wall and mark the positioning of the 2 screw holes
