"Hi, I'm Jonathan Broughton from PolesandBlinds.com Today I'm going to show you how to fit a roller blind. I am going to fit a blackout blind into a window recess. The blind is supplied complete with a side winder control chain and a side mechanism control. The standard bracket supplied as standard with the blind is the 48mm bracket. I am going to be fitting the 80 mm bracket to bring

the blind forward away from the air vents of the window.   This window has a very shallow recess and we do have an obstacle which the air vent. The blind needs to be fitted in front of the vent which is why we are using this extra large bracket. The brackets are available in 3 sizes, the standard 48mm which is the standard size supplied with the blind, the 65mm and the

80mm. Place the bracket in the corner of the window and mark with a pencil where you want the bracket to be fitted. I am going to side fit the bracket. Mark out using the top of the window frame as the guide line. To make sure the bracket is level. Simply mark the hole position ready to make the initial hole with a bradle. This particular bracket has a cut out and

the tab protruding out which fits into the side winder mechanism. The other end has a cross pattern on it which is where the roller pin device slots into when fitting the blind. Drill the holes as marked. This particular wall has wood about ½" behind the plaster board. I am therefore going to use a 2" wood screw to make the job a lot easier. As there is wood behind the plaster board, I

will not have to use rawplugs as the extra long screws will pick up the wood and I will get a really good fixing. A useful tip is to use a bradle to make the initial hole before you start to drill. This makes it nice and easy for the drill bit to locate. I am using a masonry drill and I always have a small box under the drill

bit to catch the plaster dust, to save making a mess. Again I can feel that there is wood behind the plasterboard. Once again I am going to use the 2" wood screw. and locate that into the drilled holes.   This is a good solid fixing. Fit in the bottom screw   Screw the brackets on nice and tight. As I mentioned earlier, the tab on the right bracket locates into the star shaped slot

on the end. Locate the right-hand side first   then simply slots into a secure position. Now fit the pivot point in the left hand end. So now I've located the right-hand end, I am going to put this small pivot into the hole on the other end of the roller tube. This then clips into the small tab arrangement on the left hand bracket. The right hand end is fastened securely so I cannot

show you this in detail. This then simply slides into the tabs and the blind is then secure. You may be wondering what the bracket is for on the wall above the roller blind. This is actually a bracket from the Speedy curtain pole range. As we are in a dormer window, the pole extends from the right to the left hand side without any finials as there is not any room for

the finials. In this particular instance we will be fitting a pair of eyelet curtains over the blind. This is known as a layered window treatment as the blind will block out the daylight This small device is a child safety device. Polesandblinds.com supply these as standard with all our made to measure roller blinds. Simply clip the device onto the side winder chain Pull the chain until the bracket snaps shut. This is

then securely fastened to the wall directly below the roller blind mechanism. This keeps the chain nice and tight, ensuring that a child's hands or neck cannot get caught in the chain.     I'm just going to test the sidewinder mechanism by simply pulling on the back chain. There should be a nice smooth rolling action lowering the blind down to the required position which is normally just above the window sill. Although

this is a blackout roller blind, there may be still some light seepage around the edges of the blind. The special properties of the fabric of the blind actually stops the transmission of light through the fabric. As this is the daytime, a normal blind would not make much difference to the light levels in the room. Blackout blinds are great for fitting in bedrooms either as the main window covering or

as a secondary window treatment, helping to ensure a good nights sleep. We have dimmed the lights in the room so when I was gonna check on how well this functions as right at one o'clock in the afternoon so what's this alliance so he's got a lot of what the hell sweet touch to talk to the windowsill we gotta so it's nicely blocks out the lines obviously there is going to

be it if light see page around the edges an over-the-top but there is no la transmision through the roman blind We have turned the lights back on in the room. To raise the blind pull the front section of the chain. You can open this blind to any position as it has a fraction mechanism in the side winder unit. I am going to pull this right to the top to let all the light

into the room. That is how to fit a roller blind in a recess window.   I have re-fitted the eyelet curtains to a 28mm Speedy curtain pole with the extendable brackets. They are ideal for this situation as you can extend curtain pole forward so it does not interfere with the working of the roller blinds so curtains are able to operate perfectly. Finally I am going to check the blind works perfectly

behind the curtains to check that no further adjustments are needed. Double check that the curtains function perfectly with the blind lowered. As you can see the curtains are not touching the blind.     Thanks for watching this video. All these products are available from polesandblinds.com
