how to operate your blind

  • Raise or lower the blind by pulling downwards on the chain.
  • Do not allow the chain to rub against the fabric when you raise or lower the blind (such as pulling the chain at an angle across the face of the blind) as the fabric will fray over time. This is not covered by the warranty.
  • Do not lower the blind so far that the clear ball stopper on the chain hits the control unit, as this may break the control unit over time.
  • When opening a window, always pull the blind up first – do not push your hands around the blind as this may damage the fabric.
