Step 1 – Fully raise the blind.

  • Lift the blind all the way up with the pull cord.

Step 2 – Open the box bracket latches to release the blind.

  • Place the flat head screwdriver under the latch on the bracket, and rotate it upwards to open the bracket. Repeat on each bracket.
  • Lift the latch on the bracket up fully on each side.
