Lowering blinds after shipment Menu

Occasionally blinds will not lower after shipment. This is caused due to the "Pawl"(see figure) binding. To release the blinds tug the lift cords to the side pulling towards the center of the blinds. If this does not work, the pawl must be released, follow these easy steps.

  1. Remove the blinds by taking the headrail out of the brackets.
  2. Take a screw driver and press the pawl down in the track in which it travels.
  3. Insert the blinds back into the brackets and try lowering the blinds again with the lift cord.
