CELLULAR SHADES INSTALLATION

Lift Installation Instructions
Please note that the lift mechanism should not be operated prior to the shade's installation. Before proceeding with installation, please note that the proper shade support, clips and brackets should not be mounted more than 48" apart. Outer supports should be approximately two inches from the end of the headrail. Please use wood screws or appropriate fasteners for other surfaces. Position the shade at the window to determine the location of the supports. Then follow the installation procedure specific to the shade support system enclosed with your shade and the type of mounting requried.

Basics
A few simple tools are required:
  • Measuring tape
  • Power drill, drill bits
  • Hex head and/or Phillips screw driver bit
  • Pencil


Additional fasteners other than those sent with your shade may be required depending on the mounting surface. Wallboard and plaster require the use of anchors such as expansion or toggle bolts. Brick, tile or stone need special plugs and drill bits. Remember to always pre-drill holes in wood to avoid splitting

Bulge Head or Dry Wall Screw only for shallow mount back holesHex Head Screw for any other hole


Hold Down bracket
(Optional)
Extension Bracket
(Optional)


Honeycomb Cellular shades are constructed as either an Inside Mount or an Outside Mount. The Installation Bracket can be mounted inside the window opening, for an inside mount, or on the molding or wall above the window for an outside mount. The Extension Brackets and the Hold Down Brackets are optional items requested at the time of ordering the shade. The Extension Brackets provide projection from the wall in order to clear obstructions. The Hold Down Brackets are attached to the wall/door at the bottom of the shade. The ends of the bottom rail would clip into the hold down brackets to keep the shade from moving. These are often used for installation on French Doors.


Bracket Installation
Shades are shipped with the required number of brackets for proper installation. End brackets should be located with centerlines 21/2" in form each end. Depending on the width of the shade, additional brackets may be necessary evenly spaced between the two end brackets.
For shade widths of: Use this number of brackets
Up to 40" 2
40"-72" 3
72"-84" 4
84" and up 5

Using the Installation Bracket as a template, measure and mark the center lines. When mounting brackets, make sure they are all in line and level.

Side Mount Bracket
  1. Line the bracket top with the desired height of the top of the headrail



  2. Mark holes for screws. Brackets must be level. Remove brackets and drill holes.


  3. Insert Bugle Head Screws for keyhole slots only. Approximately 1/8" of the screw should be left protruding.


  4. Pull the cord lock assembly partially out of the headrail and slide the bracket on as shown. Push the cordlock assembly and bracket back all the way into the rail


  5. Remove the end-cap from the opposite end of the headrail. Slide the remaining side mount bracket on the headrail . Replace the end-cap before sliding the bracket all the way into the headrail


  6. Hook one bracket onto the screw in the window frame, using the keyhole slot. Bring the other end bracket over the screw at the other side of the frame. Slide down, flexing bracket inward until the screw engages in the keyhole slot.


  7. Make sure both brackets are slipped down all the way in the keyhole slot so that the screw is in the top portion of the keyhole slot. Install a screw in the bottom hole of each bracket. Tighten all screws.


Hanging the shade
Unwind the cord from the shade but keep the rubber band around the stack.
  1. Hold the shade up near the brackets and insert the front clip of the bracket into the front groove of the rail
  2. Make sure the shade is centered in the window opening
  3. Push the rail back and up until the back clips of the bracket are inserted in the back groove of the rail.

To remove shade, reverse procedure.

Hold Down Bracket (Optional)
Optional Hold Down Brackets are mounted with the supplied screws. With the shade at its proper drop, place the pin of each Hold Down into the hole in each End Cap and mark the screw holes. Make sure the pins are level and aligned. Raise the shade, Then screw the Hold Down Bracket into the mounting surface.


Two On One Headrail Splicer
For shades ordered as Two-On-One Headrail using the splicer piece, insert splicer in headrail of both shades as shown. Lock into place using 3/8" Tek Screws provided.


Cordlock Operation
To raise or lock shade, pull the cord down and inward toward the center of the shade. To lower or release the shade, pull the cord downward in the vertical position to release the lock.


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

Mount the cord cleat at a safe height, taking into account furniture or other objects upon which a child may climb. Then after each use of the shade, simply wrap the excess cord around the cleat. It's fast easy and safe.

Cleaning and Care
The Shade fabric is easy to care for. Regular dusting with a feather duster or vacuum cleaner brush is recommended. Most stains can be blotted with a damp sponge and a mild detergent. For problem stains, the shade can be removed from the installation brackets and soaked in warm water. When damp, raise shade tightly to crisp pleats. Before using anything stronger than mild detergent and lukewarm water, test an obstructive corner of the shade. If you have any questions , call dealer for advice
