Cordless Roman Shade Installation Instructions
Simply follow our step-by-step instructions and your beautiful new shades will soon be enhancing your home or workspace for many years to come.
Shades need to be unpacked and installed as soon as they arrive.
Carefully unpack your shades and check to make sure you have the following installation parts. We recommend reading through these instructions before starting the installation.
Tools You Will Need:
- Power drill with a:
- 1/8" bit (outside mount)
- Phillips bit (both inside and outside mount)
- Extension bit (optional)
- Phillips screwdriver
- Metal tape measure
- Mounting brackets (only needed for outside mount)
Please note that your brackets must be securely attached to the mounting surface. If your screws do not hit wood studs you’ll have to use a different fastener which can be found at any local hardware store. *
Mounting Your Shades:
Inside Mount: The mounting holes are pre-drilled through the headrail. Start the screws into the mounting holes and tighten until the tips of the screws are slightly showing on the top of the headrail. Hold the shade inside the window frame. If possible, the front of the shade should be even with the front edge of the window frame. The shade should be centered within the window frame. With the shade properly positioned, push up on the headrail allowing the screw tips to leave a small indention on the window frame. Now drill a hole with a 1/8" drill bit at the indentions. Finish the job by attaching the screws in the headrail into the pre-drilled holes.
Outside Mount: The shades are to be attached to the window frame or wall with the mounting brackets included. The brackets need to be placed so they will not interfere with the shade’s operating mechanism. Attach the brackets to the wall or window frame at the desired height. Attach the brackets using the long screws provided, making sure the brackets are level with each other. Set the headrail on the brackets. Center the shade back against the wall or window frame. Mark hole and pre-drill using 1/8" drill bit at each bracket location. Attach the shade to the brackets using the short screws provided.
Please always use the ring pull to operate your roman shade. Please do not pull on the hem of your roman shade to operate. Raising the shade: Gently pull the ring downward and then guide the roman shade upward to the desired location. Once at desired location, gently pull the ring downward to lock it. Lowering the shade: Gently pull the ring downward to the desired location and then release the shade with a gentle upward movement until it locks in place.
Adjusting The Tension On Your Shade:
If your roman shade has too much tension (springs up too quickly) or too little (does not reach the top), the level of tension can be adjusted. Begin by locating the acrylic tension dial on you roman shade’s headrail as shown in the picture below. Note: Your tension dial may be on the left. In this case, rotation directions will be opposite as shown.
- Raise your roman shade completely.
- Hold the tube with one hand to secure it so that it does not rotate.
- Rotate the tension dial in the appropriate direction as shown in the pictures above.
- Test the shade to ensure it is now at the desired setting. Repeat if necessary
Care and Cleaning:
Minimal care and cleaning is needed to maintain the beauty of your shades.
- To vacuum: Use a hand held, low suction vacuum.
- To dust: Use a soft, clean cloth or a feather duster.
If the shades are in need of a more thorough cleaning, then have them professionally cleaned. Never immerse the shades in liquid of any type.
