P Clip (child safety)
- Cordless drill with Phillips head drill bit
- Metal tape measure
What are you mounting your blind to?
I am drilling into timber: Pre-drill holes and use the provided screws
I am drilling into plaster: We recommend use of the Ramset 10mm Grip Hollow Wall Anchor
I am drilling into concrete, stone, brick or tile: Use a Masonry drill and appropriate plugs, anchors or screws
If you are unsure, please contact us via phone or email so we can advise a solution.
Step 1 - Position
As per your order, determine where your blind is to be fitted
Step 2 - Brackets
Wood screws have been provided, please ensure you have the appropriate screws and drill bit (as specified above) if you are not drilling into wood.
- Place the Chain Drive bracket on the side you want the operating chain as per your order.
- Pre-drill 2 holes and secure the bracket with screws.
- Repeat the process for the Pin End bracket.
Step 3 - Inserting the blind
For large blinds it is best to have a second person help hold the blind in position.
Step 4 - Extending the pin end
- The pin end of our roller blinds has the ability to be adjusted to achieve a greater width if required, which may be helpful if your blind has been miss measured and requires a tighter fit.
- By rotating the clear plastic cog, the pin will extend in 1mm increments (max 8mm extension).
Step 5 - Child Safe Cord Tensioner
Australian Child Safety Laws state that a cord tensioner must be installed if the chain is less than 1.6m from the floor to prevent any risk of strangulation.
- Position the tension device at the bottom of the chain loop, either to the inside of the window frame or in front of it.
- Install the tension device onto frame, making sure that the loop chain hangs with minimal tension.
Tips & Troubleshooting
- My blind is hard to operate or making clunking noises
It is likely that the blind is in the incorrect position in the Chain Drive bracket. Please go to Step 3 “Inserting the blind” and make sure that the end cap has not been rotated out of position. The ACMEDA logo should always be in the 6 o’clock position.
- My blind is tracking to one side
This can easily be remedied by unrolling the blind and placing a 10cm piece of masking tape onto the aluminium tube, on the side you need the blind to go to. Add a couple more layers for thickness until the blind rolls up straight. If this does not fix the problem, please contact us.
- I need to clean my blind
Cleaning the blind only requires a damp cloth. Make sure not to rub too hard as you may damage the Blockout coating.
- My blind has a curve/kink
Due to transport, or the blind being left in one position for a long period of time, a curve/kink may have formed in the cloth. Please let the blind settle and this should fall out over time (warm weather will usually help). Try to rotate the blind to different heights regularly to avoid this occurring.
- I would like the chain on the opposite side
Simply remove the end caps and swap them, along with the bracket positions, to opposite sides.
