To fix the brackets.

  1. The brackets differ in appearance. Ensure you fi t the Plunger End bracket on the same side of the blind as the Plunger end.
  2. Locate the measuring points you used to calculate the width of the blind. You may be able to use the blind itself as a template.
  3. Ensure the brackets are positioned a suitable distance away from any window handles or obstructions to allow the blind to operate smoothly.
  4. Make sure you allow the correct amount of space for the blind to fit snugly between the brackets.
  5. Hold a bracket in position and mark where the screws will go using the relevant holes in the bracket as a guide.
  6. If you’re fi tting to a wall or lintel, using a suitable bit, drill holes and push in the rawlplugs.
  7. If you’re fi tting into a wooden frame, drive the screws in to fi x the brackets. You may want to make small pilot holes to allow easier fi xing of the screws.
  8. Fix the bracket into place and repeat on the other side of the blind.


To fit the blind.

  1. With the blind wound up, push the plunger end into the hole on the side of the bracket.
  1. Slide the control side of the blind (where the spring control is located) onto the control end bracket.
  1. Release the pin (do not pull all the way out) from the front side of the spring.

  • With a spring operated blind, gently pull the blind down to the required position and release the tension slightly so that the spring locks. To wind the blind back up, pull down slightly to release the spring and guide the blind into position.
