Fakro Blackout Blinds Written Fitting Instructions

Written Instructions for Fitting Fakro Blackout Blinds


You will need a crosshead screwdriver

1. Clean the skylight area, window and framework to make free from dust

2. Hold up your blinds head cassette into the top of the framework - it will fit flushly

3. Peel back the adhesive strip on the back of the cassette and place firmly back into the top of the frame.

4. Locate and use the left hand hole underneath the cassette for your first screw - DO NOT over tighten - repeat for right hand side.

5. Position the bar attached to the blackout fabric in the centre of the material.

6. Take the Left Hand Side Rail, pull out 2 inches of fabric from the cassette, and position the fabric so that it goes into the outer channel (closest to you). The plastic brake will then slot into the back. 

7. Push rail so it slots up into the head cassette, just behind the front. The rail will then fit perfectly into the skylight framework. Use one of the screws in the hole provided at the bottom of the rail.

8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the right hand rail.

That's it - you can now operate your Fakro Blackout Blinds by pushing the handle back slightly and moving the fabric to your desired position.
