Before Mounting the Bamboo Shade

    mounting bamboo shades
  • Hold the shade against the window opening to determine if shade is made for inside or outside installation. (See Figs. 1 and 2.)

  • shim bamboo shades
  • If shade is for inside window installation, and if the window frame is not even or level (Fig. 3 ), use shims to make sure that the headrail will be level when installed. (See Fig. 4)
  • Even if the headrail is mounted on the frame, wall or ceiling, it must be level, so the shade will operate properly. Also make sure that woven wood shades are the proper length and that it will clear any obstructions. Spacers or extension brackets may be required for shade to clear any obstructions.)

Mounting the Shade

  • Use the 2-inch wood screws to attach the shade to the window casement. If shim is used to level headrail, make sure that it is in place before tightening screws.
