How They'll Help You

You love your new inside-mounted window treatments, but what about that extra light creeping in from the sides? And how do you maximize your privacy?

Our Light Blocking Side Tracks can be installed on both sides of your window treatment to help maximize privacy and the blockage of light that may seep in around the edges of the fabric (e.g., cellular shades, roller shades, light-filtering shades, blackout shades, etc.). Significantly Reduce the common 'halo' effect caused by incoming side light.

This is especially beneficial when it comes to achieving a blackout effect that is as close to 100% as possible. These Light Blocking Side Tracks are made of moisture-resistant PVC with UV inhibitors and are attached to the window using extremely strong adhesive tape. The back of the side track discreetly wraps behind your window treatment to keep it out of view. To help you keep things color-coordinated Color selection currently includes black, white, off-white, grey, and bronze.

Install for a new window treatment, or add to an existing one. Sold as a pair with adhesive tape applied to one edge of each track. Side tracks should fit snugly from the bottom of the window frame, all the way up to the installed brackets or headrail. Operation from the front of the side tracks is recommended.

Complete waste of money. Did not block any light on the sides of the blackout shades we got. They are also really thin plastic that cracked when trimming them to fit the window opening.

Hello Colby, We are sorry about the issue with the light-blocking sidetracks. If possible can you email me pictures of the sidetracks showing the issue? I want to look and see if it is a warranty issue.
Ordered too much, company refused to do anything by 04-04-2022



Ordered double by mistake, company refused to do anything. Be wary of any good customer service claims. Product arrived filthy but easy to clean.

Light blocking accessories by 05-15-2022



I was extremely disappointed in the quality of the products I received. I've been doing business with you for years and I used to be able to purchase the tracks with the blinds that came together. I didn't find this option this year with my very expensive blinds, but later it was offered as an accessory option. I paid over $100 for pieces of plastic that I could have purchased at home depot for $20. These also aren't removable like the old ones. They had a magnetic strip so they could be removed to tip in the window for cleaning. This straps are not removable. I'm very very disappointed. Would NOT recommend

Hello Laura, I apologize because you had a negative experience with us after the sidetracks were not what you thought you were getting. We are always looking at ways to provide a better experience and better customer service.
Complete Waste of Money by 05-19-2022



I only write reviews when something is absolutely awful or exceptional. These 'light blocking side tracks' are a joke and a complete waste. I installed them correctly (easy to install) and they make no difference. The same amount of light still comes through both sides of my Select Blinds brand shades. Please do yourself a favor and wait for them to come up with a legit, well designed product that solves this problem. It honestly feels like a sad attempt to pacify customers in hopes they don't care enough. If they weren't glued to my window frame, I'd demand a full refund.
