2. INSTALL THE SHADE.

a. Push the clutch straight onto the blade of its bracket. The bottom of the clutch should always point straight down.

b. Lower the lug of the end plug onto the "V" of its bracket. The roller should fit in the brackets securely, with just a little play. Rotate the riveted retainer portion to lock the lugin position.

3. INSTALL THE TENSION DEVICE

The Tension Device reduces the hazards of strangulation and entanglement of young children by limiting access to the control cord. Anchor the Tension Device, that is attached to the shade?s control cord, to the window frame or wall, so that young children cannot pull the cord around their necks.

a. Lower the shade.

b. Hold the Tension Device upright so the Warning Tag hangs straight down as shown in diagram.

c. Position the Tension Device on the window frame or the wall so that the Tension Device and control cord do not interfere with raising or lowering the shade. The Tension Device should be installed without stretching or pulling down on the control cord. Stretching the cord will cause excessive wear. Do not twist or cross the control cord. If using stop balls, position the tension device 1/ 4 inch higher to allow the stop ball to pass thru the tension device.

d. Holding the Tension Device upright, and in position, as shown, insert and secure the screw through the hole. The mounting screw must be secured into a solid surface or molly.

4. USE THE CONTROL CORD TO OPERATE THE SHADE.

Pulling gently on the cord in one direction raises the shade; pulling it in the other direction lowers it.

On shades where the fabric rolls against the window, the front cord does the raising. On shades where the fabric rolls toward th e room, the rear cord does the raising.

5. ATTACH STOPS TO A CONTROL CORD THAT?S MADE OF BEAD CHAIN.

On metal bead chain, attach a metal stop ball that is at least 5/16" in diameter, so that it touches the mouth of the clutch wh en the shade is in the allrolled- up position.

For metal or plastic bead chain, lower the shade to sill or floor height, and attach the appropriate metal stop or plastic conn ector next to the clutch, this prevents the shade from being lowered beyond that point.
