How To Fit Venetian Blinds

Before fitting, check to see if there are any obstructions, i.e. vents or handles, which would affect the smooth operation of the blind. Make an allowance for these when fitting.

venetian blind brackets

Fitting the brackets

Fitting Brackets : Identify which type of bracket has been supplied : ie top fix, top fix/face fix, universal, end fix/centre supports and extension etc (see diagrams)

When not fitting into wood, always use proper plugs and screws of sufficient length to obtain a secure fixing.

Top Fix Swivel, Top Fix/Face Fix Swivel and Universal

To fit these types of brackets, firstly fit the bracket on the opposite side from the controls no more than 125mm in from the end of the headrail ensuring it does not interfere with the components.

Secondly, fit the bracket at the control side between the controls and the braid component; this must be accurate or it may affect the operation of the blind.

Evenly space any remaining brackets remembering to allow for the remaining braid components. End Fix Brackets & Centre Supports These can be face fixed, top fixed or side fixed.

Position the brackets at each end of the window recess remembering that these are handed i.e. (left or right). Evenly space the centre support brackets over the length of the blind to distribute the weight.

Fitting the Blind Top Fix, Top Fix/Face Fix Brackets

Make sure that the lever on the bracket is pulled forward; now offer the headrail up to the brackets and hold horizontally.

Swivel the lever towards the headrail locking the headrail into the brackets. Pull down lightly on the headrail to ensure that it is securely fixed.

Universal, End Fix & Central Support Brackets

Slide the headrail into the brackets being careful not to catch the top slat on the brackets. Now either insert the detachable retaining plate or screw the retaining screw into the bracket to secure the blind.

Operating Instructions

Lowering : To unlock the cords, pull the cord towards the centre of the blind and gently release the cords through your hand until you reach the required drop. Lock the cords by returning them to the side of the blind.

Raising : With the slats fully open, pull the cord towards the centre of the blind and downwards until you reach the desired height and then lock in place by returning them to the side of the blind.

Ultrawand is a one piece control unit designed with safety in mind. The raise and lower cord sits inside the Ultrawand tube ensuring cords are not left hanging loose. To raise the blind, pull the toggle at the foot of the Ultrawand downwards. To lower the blind, pull the Ultrawand down, remembering to hold the toggle gently.

CAUTION : the slats should only be tilted when the blind is lowered. Also the blind should only be raised or lowered when the slats are fully open.

Cleaning Instructions

To keep the blinds looking fresh, dust the slats regularly with a feather duster. If there is a build up of grime, then wipe the slats with a solution of mild detergent in warm water and then finally wipe the slats with a cloth rinsed in clean warm water.


Young children can strangle in a loop of pull cords, chains and tapes, and cords that operate window coverings. They can also wrap cords around their necks.

To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep cords out of the reach of young children. Move beds, cots and furniture away from window covering cords.

You can take a number of practical and simple precautions to significantly reduce the risk of accidents, and many of our products are inherently child safe.
