Top Fixing

Venetian blinds First you must measure the distance where any handles protrude from the window frame then mark this measurement on the lintel at the top of the window recess and use this measurement to the point at the bracket of the fixing bracket. First measure to where the brackets will be positioned by looking at where the components are inside the head rail as the brackets must miss these. Then mark the position of the holes using the brackets as a template and screw the brackets to the lintel using screws and rawl plugs with the swing arm facing into the room towards you. When this is done pull all the swing arms on the brackets over to the right hand side of the bracket so they are sticking into the room then offer the head rail up underneath the brackets. Once in place push all the swing arms inwards towards the head rail until flush with the front of the head rail which will cause the bracket then to grip the head rail and keep it in place.
