Step by Step Instructions

1 Measure up your window frame
2 Install the matchstick blind on the window frame
  • Step 1. Measure up your window frame

    Measure the size of the window that your blind needs to cover. Matchstick blinds come in ready-made sizes. Choose a size that covers your window frame without too much overhang. Find the centre point on the top of your window frame and mark out the fixing points for the screw-in hooks.
  • Step 2. Install the matchstick blind on the window frame

    Drill the holes for the hooks’ fixing points and screw them in. Hang the blind on the hooks, with the blind cord hanging on the right hand side. If the cord is left to hang by itself, it could become a choking hazard. So, for increased safety, install a tie-off cleat on the window frame, 1600mm above floor level and tie the cord up to that.
