FABRIC RUN-OFF

Diagram 1 below shows the fabric running off from the right-hand side of the blind. To correct the run-off, unroll the fabric, place a 25mm piece of sticky tape onto the tube (Diagram 2) at the opposite end of the blind to the run-off. Fully wind the blind up. Repeat until the fabric is no longer running-off.
