No matter how lovely, how well-crafted, priced, et cetera these shades are- and they are very nice- the mounting system is a disaster- wholly inadequate for all but the most trivial installations. The mount's design is simple- a short length of channel track is mounted on the shade at the factor. The installer's job is to align and mount a spring clip into the opening's structure. To hang the shade, just align the tracks, give a quick push to the shade and the clips snap securely to the tracks. Exhale, ooh and aah as you wish, you are done. Two fasteners per clip, three clips per shade. Dream on, nightmare ahead. The problem is simple: the tolerances, or wiggle room is so minute and the number of potential problems so great, know this now: you will fail. Mounting your shade into sheet-rock over concrete block? Your screws will have heads too large to let the clips catch the track. There is also a very good chance those same heads will be too close to channels- and ride on top of them, rather than along side. Your immediate future is bleak bud. The ability to tweak your work by micro adjusting the clip's position is so limited and fraught with other problems (torque is one) Many holes, much dust ahead. Then, when finally hung, you look and the shade doesn't hang quite right. Blindsgalore, their competitors, and suppliers ought not deliver one more shade until the mounting system is up to the task. read more
I was in the painting/carpentry trades for over 25 years - a finisher. The quality of the blinds are superb, the look, the functionality... just a great product and highly recommended. Expect however to dedicate some time to figuring out how to mount and operate them if you have any type of unusual window framing circumstances. The instructions do not address many key issues about mounting and functionality, due to that they are not specific to each category of blinds. They are like scrambled eggs to decipher. We figured it out in a couple hours and now are exceedingly happy with the results. With better instructional materials - how about a video each for each product line?- this company would unquestionably be 5 stars! read more
