Tools You Will Need
When using tools, make sure you wear proper eye protection.
Choose the Proper Fasteners
For installation in wood or aluminum frames, Levolor recommends you use the sheet metal screws included with your Custom Riviera Classic blind. For other types of wall or window construction, you will need to furnish different fasteners.
See Diagram B above for the following different types of fasteners:
Note: Fastener strength should be rated more than the weight of the blind.
Attach the Brackets
Install the 2 end brackets by first determining where to attach each bracket. Left and Right brackets are marked. Insert screws through the holes in the back of the end brackets for outside mounted blinds (Diagram E). Insert screws through the holes in sides or top of the end brackets for inside mounted blinds (Diagram F).
Use 2 screws in each end bracket, either both through the top holes or side holes, or one screw through each for inside mounted blinds (Diagram F). Use 2 screws in the holes in the back of the end bracket, preferably diagonally, for outside mounted blinds (Diagram E). Make sure the end brackets are level for outside mounted blinds.
Install the center support brackets (when supplied) by centering the support bracket between the 2 end brackets. If more than 1 center support bracket is supplied, space them evenly across the width of the headrail. Be sure to use all center support brackets supplied. Keep the top and back of the support brackets level and aligned with the tops and backs of the 2 end brackets. Insert screws through the holes in the top of the support brackets for inside mounted blinds. Insert screws through the holes in the back of the support brackets for outside mounted blinds.
Install the Headrail
Open both end bracket covers and slide the headrail into the bracket as shown in Diagram H. Then close the end brackets until they click into place.
If you are using center support brackets, you must first engage the headrail onto those support brackets before inserting the headrail into the end brackets.
For Levolor 1" Rivieras, lift the headrail into position with the front lip between the locking mechanism and the bracket hook (Diagram G). Slide the headrail back toward the window so the front lip engages the bracket hook, then push the locking mechanism tab in until it snaps into place.
Adjust Headrail Fit
Your Levolor Riviera Classic blind headrail should fit in the end brackets tightly. If there is any play in the headrail from side to side, you can adjust the end tabs on the headrail until a snug fit is achieved. To adjust for a tighter fit, bend out the tabs (Diagram I) equally on each end. To loosen, tap the tabs in. If the headrail and blind are off-centered in the window opening, adjust the tabs appropriately to move the headrail and hold it in the desired position.
Attach the Tilt Wand
You may need to attach the wand to the tilt gear stem. Push the tilt wand sleeve up (Diagram J), engage the S-hook as shown, then pull the sleeve down (Diagram K). Rotate the tilt wand to open and close the blind slats. Use the lift cord to raise and lower the blind (Diagram L).
Attach the Valance to the Headrail
Install VogueŽ Valance-Inside Mount: Your Levolor Riviera Classic blind includes either a double or single slat valance. The valance clip attaches to frame as shown (Diagram M). Valance clip is then attached to headrail (Diagram N). Be sure the valance clips are spaced evenly along the length of the valance frame. On tight inside mount applications it may be necessary to attach the valance clips prior to installing the headrail in the mounting brackets.
Install VogueŽ Valance-Outside Mount: Levolor Riviera Classic blinds ordered as an outside mount are supplied with a valance, 2 corners and 2 return pieces fully assembled. The valance is shipped flat. To form the corner, hold frame and return firmly and bend down over table edge to form a 90° angle. Corner will lock into position (Diagram O). Continue as described under Inside Mount. Valance returns are designed to cover the size of the installation bracket Returns may be trimmed with a scissors, if necessary, to shorten (Diagram P).
Hold Down Brackets
These brackets are used only where it is desirable to keep the bottom of the blind from swinging freely, such as on a door.
