Step 1: Gather the Necessary Tools
To begin installing your Home Decorators Collection cordless cellular shades outside mount, make sure you have the following tools on hand:
– Measuring tape
– Mounting brackets (included with the shades)
– Screws (included with the shades)
Step 2: Measure the Window
Start by measuring the width and height of your window frame. Take accurate measurements to ensure a proper fit for your shades. Write down these measurements for reference.
Step 3: Mark the Mounting Locations
Using a pencil, mark the mounting locations on the outside of the window frame. Make sure the marks are level and evenly spaced.
Step 4: Install the Mounting Brackets
Take one of the mounting brackets and align it with the first marked location. Use a level to ensure it is straight. Once aligned, use a screwdriver or drill to secure the bracket in place using the provided screws. Repeat this step for the remaining brackets.
Step 5: Attach the Shades to the Brackets
Carefully place the cordless cellular shades onto the installed mounting brackets. Make sure they are securely attached and level.
Step 6: Test the Operation
Gently pull down on the shades to test their functionality. Ensure that they move smoothly and stay in place when fully extended or retracted.
Step 7: Make Adjustments if Necessary
If the shades are not level or do not operate correctly, make any necessary adjustments. This may involve loosening the screws on the mounting brackets and repositioning them slightly.
