What you will need:

  • Drill / Nut Driver
  • Pencil
  • Level
  • Steel Tape Measure

Before beginning installation, open the box(es) and be sure you received everything in your order including all installation hardware. All your hardware may be in one box. Be sure you have received your complete order .

Step One: Install Mounting Brackets

Before beginning installation, check your blinds to see if they are made for installation on the inside or outside of the window casing:

  • Hold your blinds and headrail up to the window and see if they fit inside the window casing.
  • If the blinds fit easily inside the casing, use the Inside Mount instructions below. If the blinds are too wide for the casing, use the Outside Mount instructions

Note: For convenience in installation, all mounting brackets can be installed through top, back, and side screw holes.

Inside Mount Installation:

  • If the casing is deeper than 2 inches, bring the brackets towards the front edge of the window casing opening.
  • Mount the brackets in the corners of the window casing using the provided screws.

Outside Mount Installation:

  • Choose your mounting location above or on the window trim.
  • Hold the blind and headrail up against the window and mark with a pencil where the brackets are to be installed.
  • Use a level to be sure your marks are level with one another.
  • Mount the brackets using the provided screws.

Step Two: Install Headrail and Blinds

NOTE: Valance and wand installation (Steps 3 and 4) may require removal of the headrail from the brackets. If you prefer installing the valance and wand before mounting the blinds, go directly to steps 3 and 4 and return to this step after the valance and wand are installed.

  • Once both the left and right mounting brackets are secured into place, insert the headrail into the mounting brackets and close the hinges until snapped closed.

Step Three: Wand Installation

  • Slide the hooked end of the clear plastic wand through the loop sticking out of the metal headrail at the top of the blind.
  • Once the wand is installed properly, the wand should be free-hanging, secure, and fully functional, operating the tilting of the slats open and closed.

Step Four: Valance Slat Installation (Optional):

Valance slats are designed to hide the installation hardware and give your blinds a finished look.

  • Attach the clips to the metal headrail
  • Avoid the mechanisms inside, but space the clips far enough apart that the valance will be level.
  • Slide the valance slats through the clips.
  • Be gentle! Clips can break and valance slats can bend/dent.

Once safely secured, you may lower the blinds and enjoy your new mini blinds!

Your new window blinds should now be successfully installed! If you have any questions or need any assistance, do not hesitate to contact us at 1(888) 835-4459 or email us!

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR 2” AND 2.5” BLINDS

Your new custom window blinds from Delta Blinds Supply were handmade for you from the best products available for window treatments.

Follow these instructions for a quick and easy installation process. You’ll be admiring your elegant new window fitting in just a few minutes!

What you will need:

  • Drill / Nut Driver
  • Pencil
  • Level
  • Steel Tape Measure

Before beginning installation, open the box(es) and be sure you received everything in your order including all installation hardware. All your hardware may be in one box. Be sure you have received your complete order - your order may not require all the hardware listed above.

Step One: Install Mounting Brackets

Before beginning installation, check your blinds to see if they are made for installation on the inside or outside of the window casing.

Instructions for both inside and outside mounting can be found below.

Note: For convenience in installation, all mounting brackets can be installed through top, back, and side screw holes.

Inside Mount Installation:

  • Mount the brackets in the corners of the window casing using the provided screws.
  • Note: Provided screws are intended for use on wood or drywall. If you are mounting through metal surfaces, you may need different screws.
  • If the casing is deeper than 2 inches, bring the brackets towards the front edge of the window casing opening.

Outside Mount Installation:

  • Choose your mounting location above or on the window trim.
  • Hold the blind and headrail up against the window and mark with a pencil where the brackets are to be installed.
  • Use a level to be sure your marks are level with one another.
  • Mount the brackets using the provided screws.

Center Support Bracket Installation (If Applicable):

If your order came with a center support bracket:

  • Measure and mark the center of the window casing. The center support bracket should be installed at the center of the window or wall/trim.
  • Install the widest part of bracket with most screw holes at the ceiling of window casing OR use back screw holes of bracket to attach to back of casing.
  • DO NOT SCREW INTO BLIND HEADRAIL.
  • Blind will rest in the center support bracket.

Step Two: Install Headrail and Blinds

NOTE: Valance and wand installation (Steps 3 and 4) may require removal of the headrail from the brackets. If you prefer installing the valance and wand before mounting the blinds, go directly to steps 3 and 4 and return to this step after the valance and wand are installed.

  • Once both the left and right mounting brackets are secured into place, insert the headrail into the mounting brackets and close the hinges until snapped closed.

Step Three: Valance Installation:

Valances are designed to hide the installation hardware and give your blinds a finished look.

Note: Your valance may have come with two smaller valance side pieces (called returns) that attach to the ends of the valance. If returns are included, attach the returns to the valance before installing the valance on the blinds, using the diagrams below.

  • If your blinds are a part of our Rustic Collection, valance returns must be glued with hot glue or a fast-drying epoxy because there is no groove on the back of the valance.
  • Slide the L brackets into the groove on the back of the valance and conjoin the parts together as shown below:

Attach the clips to the metal headrail

  • Avoid the mechanisms inside, but space the clips far enough apart that the valance will be level.
  • Angle the valance against the clips, and snap them together into place.
  • Be sure the hoop is pointing upward as shown in figure 1.
  • Be gentle! Clips can break and valance slats can bend/dent.
  • Optional: Another way to attach valance clips is to place the clips horizontally with the two teeth in the groove, then turn the clip vertically.
  • Secure the valance, then slide the valance to cover the metal headrail and installation hardware.

(For Outside Mount Blinds Only) Step Four: Install Hold-Down Brackets

Hold-down brackets keep the blinds in place by securing the bottom rail to the window frame or wall. To install:

  • Lower the blind to the desired height, and place the pin into the perforated hole on the side of the bottom rail (Figure 1 below).**
  • While holding the bracket against the wall or frame, use a pencil to mark where the screws will go.
  • Secure the brackets with the screws provided to the wall or window frame (Figure 2 below).
  • Detach brackets before raising or lowering the blinds to avoid breaking brackets.

*NOTE: Sidelight blinds under 13” wide, will not be able to lift and lower, as previously stated.

*NOTE: Real wood bottom rails will not have a predrilled or perforated hole. By using a small drill bit or tapping a nail, you can create the hole needed for the hold-down brackets installation.

Once safely secured, you may lower and enjoy your new blinds!

Your new window blinds should now be successfully installed! If you have any questions or need any assistance, do not hesitate to contact us at 1(888) 835-4459 or email us!

ROLLER SHADE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Installing the Mounting Brackets

As you’re installing your mounting brackets, keep in mind that your mounting bracket should not be completely flush with the window. Allow at least 1/8” behind (or above for outside mount) the bracket to allow for installation.

Using your drill or nut driver, fasten the bracket:

INSIDE MOUNT: through the top two holes of the mounting backet.

OUTSIDE MOUNT: through the back two holes of the mounting bracket. Repeat for all brackets.

Once installed, the mounting brackets should be balanced on each side of the cassette. In this example, the mounting brackets are about 5 1/2” inches from the edges of the cassette. The wider the shade, the more brackets you will have. These need to be equally spaced apart.

Step 2: Installing the Shade

Hook the back of the cassette to the bottom of the mounting brackets. Then, push the top of the cassette into the top of the mounting brackets until it clicks into place. Be sure that all of the mounting brackets are secured onto shade.

Step 3: Installing the Chain Tensioner (not applicable for cordless shades)

Unwrap the rubber band from the chain lift and extend the chain to its maximum length. Using your drill or nut driver, fasten the tensioner to the side of the window casing.

OUTSIDE MOUNT: If there is not enough space for the chain tensioner inside the window casing, it can be mounted to the wall.

NOTE: Be sure to leave just enough slack so the chain will slide through easily, however, do not keep the chain so loose that there is extra chain below the tensioner. Ideally, your properly tensioned chain should look like the one in this picture.
