Take your screws and place them over the hole. With your drill, you’ll need to screw the bracket to the wall slightly loose, while making sure it is level.

Once you have made sure the bracket is sitting correctly over the holes, you will need to drill the second screw into the wall to ensure it is held securely. Make sure you go back to the first screw and complete the drilling to make it tighter.

Simply take your blinds and fully fold it up. Find the end without a control or chain and insert it into the hole on the side of the bracket. You can do this by pressing the pin end to connect it with the bracket. You should hear a click once it is properly fitted. Finally, test it by pulling the mechanism and ensure it fully extends.
