Roll-up shades variation outside mount


Step 1. To mount blinds outside the window frame, measure the width from the outside edges of the window frame and the height from 2 to 3” above to 2” to 3” below the frame. If the window doesn’t have a frame, measure the opening and add a few inches on each side. Make a diagram of the measurements and refer to it when purchasing blinds to fit.

 

Step 2. Position the first bracket as indicated by the diagram you made in step 1, and mark its screw holes. Use a stud finder to locate nearby studs. If a stud is in the bracket area, drill pilot holes at the marks and attach the bracket to the wall. If no stud is available, use an awl to make a small hole at each mark, and then drive a self-tapping hollow wall anchor into each. Finally, drive a screw into each anchor.

 

Step 3. Shoot a line with a laser level or use a standard level to draw a level line across the wall from the top edge of the bracket to the planned position for the second bracket. Position the second bracket and fasten it to the wall as described in step 2.

 

Step 4. Lift the blinds into place and install them in the brackets on the wall. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure a secure fit.
