Support Bracket (if applicable): Align the centre support bracket with brackets in the corners to ensure perfect fit. Check the string locations of the blind to ensure the placement of the support bracket is not in the way.

Remove the covering tapes off the pre-attached Velcro on the side of the headrail. Carefully align the End Return with fascia and press firmly to attach.
