Adjusting the Tension
The blind is supplied pre-tensioned however, should this need adjusted, please change as follows:
- Use the 2mm allen key supplied to adjust the cord stops.
- If the blind does not stay in position or raise on its own accord, add tension to the cords by adjusting the cord stop.
