Step 1 - Installing the blind

Unpack your Twist&Fit Roman blind on a clean, dry surface

 

The fabric will be attached to the headrail. Pull back the Roman fabric on each end of the blind, leaving some still attached in the middle.

 

Note that the Twist&Fit plunge end is positioned on the opposite side of the chain control. The twist cog should be closer to the wall side to enable the plunge mechanism before tightening.

 

Lift the blind into the recess, plunge end first. Ensure you only lift where the fabric is not covering the headrail to avoid creasing or damaging the blind. 


Maintain your grip on the headrail and make adjustments to achieve a level position


NOTE: To minimise excess light bleed, we advise fitting the Roman as deep into the recess as possible.

Gently rotate the largest cog on the plunge end so it starts to move towards the blind fabric.

For a right-hand chain control, twist the cog down towards the floor. For a left-hand control, turn it in the opposite direction. 

Your blind will come with a small adjustment tool, simply place this over the Twist mechanism to ensure the tension is nice and tight. 


Your blind is now secure.

Stick the fabric back onto the headrail, the fabric should provide extra coverage to cover components.

Step 2 - Releasing the blind

To take down the blind, grip it firmly and twist the cog towards the wall and gently slide the blind out.


NOTE: If your window is exposed to high humidity or direct sunlight, occasional adjustments to the twist tension may be necessary throughout the year.

Step 3 - Installing the safety device

Place the safety device on the wall and mark the positioning of the 2 screw holes.

Drill holes using a suitable drill bit. Place device into position ensuring the chain is
fully taut.

 

Screw the safety device securely to the wall using suitable fixings.

The safety device must be installed at the maximum distance possible from
the control mechanism to prevent looped chain becoming slack.

Care Tips

Reduce dust build-up through regular usage of your Roman blinds.

These drill-free blinds enable you to remove for a full window cleaning. Ensure the surface is fully dry before re-installing the blind.

Check the level of your blind after each cleaning session to reduce any fraying damage.

This blind features a grip which provides able support. Ensure regular tightening in rooms with high moisture levels, such as a bathroom or kitchen.

Roman blinds can be lightly vacuumed with the soft nozzle attachment. Use lukewarm water to remove other stains.

 

Child Safety

Ensure that all provided safety mechanisms accompanying the blind are properly and securely installed to mitigate potential risks.


It is imperative to ensure that all cords remain inaccessible to children, those at risk and pets. Due to their cords and chains, blinds can pose a strangulation hazard.


Relocate any adjacent beds, cots, and furniture that may be scaled, ensuring they are positioned at a safe distance from windows. Under no circumstances should cords be tied together. It's vital to prevent the cords from becoming entangled or forming loops.
