Affix Ring Tape

Position blind on work surface face down. Line up ring tape on sides, making sure rings line up with rod pockets. Hot glue ring tape into place. Tip: If rod pockets and rings don't line up perfectly, cut twill tape to position rings directly on dowels.

Prepare Header Board

Drill two pilot holes through header board for installation screws (Image 1). Tighten 3 screw eyes into bottom side of header board (Image 2). See diagram for proper hardware placement (Image 3).

Thread Cording

Cut two pieces of nylon cording double the window height. Tie end of one cord to second to last ring at bottom of blind on right side (Image 1). Thread through rings that are positioned over dowel rods and up through screw eye. Continue to thread cord through middle and left screw eyes. Repeat on left side, but thread only through left screw eye (Image 2). Pull both cords tight, so the blind is even and make a knot just to the left of the left screw eye. Make one more knot in bottom of cords to keep them together.
