How do I measure for Perfect Fit blinds?
- Before you begin, ensure there is a clearance of 25mm from the rubber beading to any obstructions to allow enough room for the Perfect Fit.
- Measure the width and the drop of your glass size accurately with a measuring tape. Do NOT include the rubber beading. We recommend that you measure in both corners and the middle of your window and use the smallest size taken.
- Measure the depth of the window. Do this by taking a credit card and placing it over the corner of the frame and measure. This gives you the measurement from the face of the window frame to the glass (this is normally 18mm/20mm/22mm/24mm/30mm) and will determine the size of the window fixing brackets to be used.

How do I fit Perfect Fit blinds?
- Assemble the blind by placing all components face down on a clean surface. Guide the two side channels into the exposed arms of the top frame corner joints, until they are secure and tighten the screws attached. Repeat the process with the bottom section of the frame to complete the blind.
- Place a credit card vertically against the glass at the top of the window. Where the bottom of the card sits, this is the installation point for the first bracket. Install all of the brackets provided, installing any intermediate brackets accordingly.
- Once the brackets are in place, simply line up the framework with the brackets and click it into place. Now your Perfect Fit Venetian Blind is almost ready, attach the tilt wand and the blind is now ready to operate.

How much clearance do I need between the window and any obstructions such as handles or vents?
You need at least 25mm clearance from the rubber beading.
Do you include the rubber beading in your measurements?
No, do not include this in your measurements. Your measurements should be glass size only.
Why won’t my bracket go behind the rubber beading?
Sometimes, the rubber beading sticks to the window which makes it difficult. Apply some fairy liquid or something similar to the bracket and this will help to slide it behind the bracket.
