How to Install Blinds

Introduction

Fitting a blind is so simple that we're confident it won't take you long! Just follow the steps below. It's so easy!


What you will need:

  1. Power drill

  2. Drill bit

  3. Phillips Screwdriver (The one with the crossed head)

  4. Flat head Screwdriver

  5. Box of Screws

  6. A pencil


Which drill bit?

If you're drilling into concrete, brick or plaster you should use a 5.0 mm diameter masonry drill bit. You will also require white wall plugs and 8 guage 1 inch Phillips head screws.

If you're drilling into wood or steel you should use a 3mm diameter high speed steel drill bit.


Handy Hints

If you're drilling into tiles then cover your drilling point with masking tape. This will prevent the drill from slipping.
