Our video guides have been thoughtfully designed to provide support for you and allow you to easily access the information you need to install Roller Blinds or address any issues that can occur with Roller Blinds.
The time it takes to install Roller Blinds can differ greatly depending on the complexity of the Blinds. Linked Blinds and Dual Blinds will take more time than an individual Roller Blind. Allow 10 - 40 minutes per Blind depending on experience.
You can add tape to the top tube on the side that is rolling up slower. This will help it to wind up evenly with the other side.
Yes, the chain on a Roller Blind can easily be replaced by carefully removing the outer cover of the chain drive and removing the chain. Place the new chain into the groves and replace the outer cover.
If you find that the Roller Blind mechanism is broken or not working properly the best option is to replace the entire chain drive system. This will allow you to easily remove the broken mechanism without having to replace individual parts. Replacing the chain drive will allow you to keep your original blind in working condition without having to replace the entire blind.
Depending on the fabric and bottom rail it can be very easy to change the roll direction of Roller Blinds. To change the Roll Direction you need to roll the Blind all the way down and remove the fabric from the tube. Once the fabric is removed you can flip the tube and secure the fabric to the opposite position. This will change the roll direction of the fabric. To finish off reversing the roll direction you need to roll the blind up and ensure it rolls up the way you want it to. We have video guides that walk you through the different steps for back roll to front roll, and front roll to back roll.
Fixing fraying Blind fabric can be an easy procedure if you are proactive and address the issue before the fabric becomes too frayed. To fix most types of fraying Blind fabrics you can simply use a lighter to apply heat to the threads. Ensure that you keep the lighter moving up and down to reduce the risk of burning the fabric. As the threads begin to melt you can compress them using your fingers to prevent the fabric from unravelling further. Make sure that you are careful when using your fingers and watch out for burns. Allow the fabric to cool and then continue the process for the remaining threads.
In most cases, it is best to simply replace the roller blind chain with a new one as they are normally a pretty affordable component to replace. However, if you're determined to repair your chain it can normally be done easily. *Chain repairs may not work if your chain already has a Roller Blind chain joiner. If your chain is still in the chain drive you can use a Roller Blind chain joiner to join the ends together. If you notice that the chain joiner is preventing your blind from rolling all the way up or all the way down you will need to reposition the chain as well as the clear plastic stopper if there is one on your chain. Start by removing the clear plastic chain stopper if there is one and keep it handy as you will need it later. Remove the chain drive from the Roller Blind tube. Hold the chain drive in one hand and use the other hand to press the plastic tabs to release the chain cover. With the chain, cover removed you can now reposition the chain so that the joiner will not interfere with the operation of the Blind. Once you have the chain in place replace the chain drive cover and the chain drive back into the tube. Check to ensure that the Blind is performing correctly then add the clear plastic stopper to stop the blind from being wound up too far.
