How to Install Wrap-Around or “C” Style Valance Clips on Horizontal Blinds

Video ID:  401011


Wrap-around or “C” style valance clips are used to hang decorative valances on horizontal wood, faux wood, Venetian, and mini blinds. The front “C” shaped opening on the valance clip wraps around the top and bottom of the valance. The back of the valance clip attaches to the headrail of the blind. This style of valance clip is usually slightly visible once installed. If the blind is mounted inside the window, the blind will need to be removed to install or remove this style of valance clip.
