Roller Blinds Installation Guide

Materials  for Each Blind

Each Roller Blind ordered should include:

  • 1 pair of installation brackets - 1 for the control side (spade end), 1 for the idle end (pin end).
  • 1 child safety tensioner or in the case of a dual blind 2 child safety tensioners.
  • Screws for both the brackets and the tensioning device.
  • 1 Ball Stop

Tools Required  for Installation

  • Steel measuring tape.
  • Carpenter's level.
  • Power or battery drill and bits.
  • Flat blade and Phillips head screwdrivers.

Mounting the  Brackets

Before Installation, check method of fixing and whether the blind is standard or reverse roll. The fixing of the brackets may be in a horizontal or vertical position with the screws going in either of two directions.

It must first be determined which of the brackets is to accept the chain drive end, dependent upon whether the blind is 'Standard' or 'Reverse Roll'. The brackets are then screwed in position ensuring the blind roller tube, when assembled, is in a horizontal plane (check with spirit level).

The outmost edge of the brackets should be equal to the blind width specified.

Bricks or Rendered SurfacesBrick or Rendered

Warning: Ensure you drill no closer than 25mm from the edges of these surfaces as you may chip or break the brick or render. 




Reveal Fit (Inside  Mount)Roller Reveal Fit

Examine the window carefully and decide whether the brackets should be top, or back mounted. Next, determine which side your chain control should be on and install the appropriate brackets, followed by the other bracket on the opposite side with the screw supplied.



Face Fit (Outside Mount)Roller Face Fit

First measure the blind and mark on the face or architrave of the window where to attach the brackets.  Attach the brackets by using the screws supplied. Screw in one screw to allow for minor adjustments before the second screw is attached.



InstallationRoller Install Chain

  • Insert  the  control  end  of  the  tube  onto  the  control bracket ( with spade ).
  • Slide  idle  end  with  retractable  pin  into  the  idle  end bracket cap until pin clicks in.
  • It is important that the "cap" of the Chain Control 
    is fitted at the top of the blind to prevent excessive chain noise.
  • Snap the Ball Stop onto the chain to prevent the blind being lowered past it's bottom limit. This will help to ensure that the fabric is not "wound' off the tube.


RemovalRoller Remove Chain

  • Retract pin by rotating the grooved wheel anti clockwise until pin is fully retracted and locked into place.
  • Disengage the Idler end from the Idle bracket and remove blind.

NOTE: A blind with the Spring Assist is installed using the same method as the Standard Chain Drive (outlined above). This blind does not require pre-tensioning in the home.



  • Mount installation bracket in desired position with screws to wall or ceiling.
  • Following the installation instructions outlined on previous pages,securely install the 'window' blind and then the 'Room Blind.'




Operating InstructionsRoller Operating Instructions

Raising and lowering the blind:

To raise the blind gently pull down on the front section of the chain. To lower the blind pull down on the rear section of the chain.

NOTE:  When operating the chain should be held in a vertical position as shown in the diagram.

This will ensure:

  • The fabric is not damaged.
  • The amount of noise is limited when operating the blind.
  • The blind will lift evenly.

How to install the Cord Tension ( Child Safety ) device

The Tension Device should hold the chain with enough tensioned against an architrave or window frame, thereby making it hard for a young child to fit though the chain.

Clip the chain through the bottom of the Tension Device. Position the Tension Device on the window frame or architrave so that the back of chain leads into the left of the tensioner. The side of the chain should run parallel to the blind leaving a small gap. This ensures the chain will not touch the fabric. Correct

Chain Tension – When the chain is pulled taut, it should be running through the centre of the tensioner space. Make sure the screw is affixed into the architrave or window frame (solid material like MDF or Hardwood).

Care and  Cleaning

  • Surface  dust  may  be  removed  with  a  gentle  brush, feather duster or clean, dry cloth.
  • Wipe with a dry sponge.
  • An art gum rubber is excellent for removing small marks.
