TruWood/RomaWood Venetians Installation Guide


Each Blind ordered should include:

• 1 left hand and 1 right hand hinged cover mounting bracket

• Support bracket(s) if needed

• 2 screws for each bracket


• Steel measuring tape

• Carpenter’s level

• Power or battery drill and bits

• Flat blade and Phillips head screwdrivers



The installation brackets may be Reveal (inside the window frame) or Face (outside the window frame) or ceiling (top) mounted. In all cases, level mounting is critical to the operation of the blind (use carpenter’s level). To open the end mount bracket press up on the bottom side of the bracket to release the locking safety cover.

In all cases, fit the Centre support bracket (s) if supplied, to support the blind along the length of the Headrail

IMPORTANT: Please read these instructions thoroughly before installingCentre Support Bracket


REVEAL FIT (Inside  Mount)

Reveal Fit Screws

Attach the two installation brackets inside the window frame, flush against each side and the top of the window frame. Align the front edges of the installation brackets. Pack down if necessary to ensure the brackets allow level mounting of the headrail. Two screws are used to attach each bracket. For the most secure installation, fasten one screw to the top and one screw to the side of the frame as indicated.


FACE  FIT (Outside Mount)Face Fit Screws

First, measure the blind and mark on the face or architrave where to attach the two installation brackets.

NOTE: 5mm past each end of headrail.

Attach the installation brackets to the wall or architrave using 2 screws Position the screws diagonally as shown above, however not too close to t render to avoid break away.

CEILING  FITCealing Fit Screws

As with face fit, measure the blind and  mark on the ceiling where to attach the two installation brackets, noting this should be 5mm past the end of the headrail. With the front edges of the brackets aligned, attach the brackets to the top of the reveal or ceiling with the screws supplied

IMPORTANT: Avoid positioning support brackets in line with the tape drum



Simply slip the headrail into the end mount brackets and snap the locking covers shut.  After fitting the headrail, attach the pelmet by pressing onto the Velcro® attached to the Headrail. 

If the blind is a FACE fit it will come with Pelmet returns - attach these to either end of the Pelmet, before fitting, by pushing the two brackets ( already attached ) to-gether

NOTE: If a centre support bracket has been installed, a screw must be screwed through a hole in the bottom of the bracket into the headrail.






Be aware that it is possible for children to strangle in window covering cords. To reduce the possibility of such an accident, all cords must be kept out of the reach of children, including infants. Cord cleats are an effective way to implement this essential precaution.

Attach the cord cleats 153mm to 305mm apart at a height where they will be out of the reach of children. Take into account that a child may stand on a baby cot or other furniture in an attempt to reach the cords. Once the cleats are attached, simply wrap the excess cord around them after each use of the shade, as shown. It’s fast, easy and safe.



CORD  TILT: Pulling on one of the single cords will tilt the slats in one direction, and pulling the other cord will tilt the slats in the opposite direction.



Standard Blinds: whenever raising or lowering the blind, the slats should be in the open position.


Care and  Cleaning

1.         Dust can be easily brushed off at regular intervals using a clean soft cloth, a feather duster or a vacuum cleaner with brush attachment.

2.         To dust, tilt slats up and then down, (but not entirely closed), to reach the top and bottom surfaces.
