Before you get going

Your custom kit:

OK it's time to start installing,
let's take it step by step

Installing your blind is easy and fun. Follow these 6 steps, then kick back and admire a job well done.

Here's how to do it:

1 Get organised

  • 2020 01 A facefit roller blinds A

    Unpack your custom kit, and lay out your roller blind on a clean floor, under your window.

  • 2020 01 B facefit roller blinds B

    If you ordered a pelmet, now's the time to slip your brackets into the pelmet returns, as you will be mounting them as one in steps 2 and 3.

2 Mark up

  • 2020 02 A facefit roller blinds A

    Take your pencil and both brackets. Lift each bracket up into position and mark two level dots where the screws will attach the bracket to the frame.

  • 2020 02 B facefit roller blinds B

    This will be in the top corners of your frame.

3 Attach your brackets

  • 2020 03 A facefit roller blinds A

    Using your cordless drill with the 3 mm drill bit, pre-drill 2 holes where you marked the two pencil dots.

  • 2020 03 B facefit roller blinds B

    Pick up the chain drive bracket and position it on the side of the frame where your chain will sit. The holes in the bracket should be directly over the two holes you just drilled. Secure the bracket with the screws in your custom kit, using your cordless drill with the Phillips head drill bit.

    Repeat the process for the pin end bracket.

    Follow the same steps if you ordered a pelmet. Just remember you'll be attaching your bracket and pelmet return as one.

4 Click in your blind

  • 2020 04 A facefit roller blinds A

    Pick up your roller blind and make sure your chain is on the same side as your chain bracket. Check that the hood over the chain is at 12 o'clock and the ACMEDA logo is at 6 o'clock.

  • 2020 04 B facefit roller blinds B

    Gently slot the chain end into the chain drive bracket.

  • 2020 04 C facefit roller blinds C

    Then slot the pin end into the pin end bracket, until you hear a click.

    Not a perfect fit? Don't stress. Your blind should click into the brackets easily. But if it doesn't, go to 'I need some extra help' at the bottom.

5 Make it child safe

  • 2020 05 A facefit roller blinds A

    Click the p clip onto the bottom of the chain loop, then hold it into position and mark a dot where the screw will attach the p clip to the frame or wall. Remember the chain should hang down with minimal tension.

  • 2020 05 B facefit roller blinds B

    Screw the p clip onto your frame or wall, using your cordless drill with the Phillips head drill bit. Remember that attaching to a wooden frame or wall studs is best, otherwise do your homework.

  • 2020 05 C facefit roller blinds C

    We take Australian child safety laws seriously. They state you must install a P clip if the chain is less than 1.6 metres from the floor. This is to prevent any risk of strangulation. See 'Let's get real about child safety' at the bottom for more info.

6 Get Insta ready

  • 2020 06 A facefit roller blinds A

    Slide your two bracket covers onto the outside of each bracket.

  • 2020 06 B facefit roller blinds B

    You can adjust precisely where your blind rolls down to. Roll it down until you're happy with where it finishes, then grab your ball stopper and click it onto the very top of the chain that's closest to you.

  • 2020 06 C facefit roller blinds C

    If you ordered a pelmet, attach it to one bracket then use a small amount of force to clip in the other side. Once it's up, the pelmet sits neatly in the pelmet returns and your blind rolls up and down easily.

I need some extra help

Let's get real about child safety.

Children don't understand that a chain wrapped around their neck can tighten and strangle them in just a few minutes if they sit down, roll around or climb down to the floor.

Children have died when the loop went over their head or they got tangled in a loose chain while:

  • sleeping in a cot or bed near to where chains are hanging
  • playing near chains, or
  • standing on a chair, sofa or bed to look out of a window.

You must follow the Australian Government requirements when installing your blind.

  • Install your p clip exactly as per step 5 of this guide
  • Don't remove the warning label that comes attached to your blind
  • Attach your own label with your name and contact details (or the details of whoever is installing your blind for you)
