Step 1: Check package contents.

  • Missing Part? Damage? Please call 877-262-0954

Step 2: Prepare Shade for Installation

  • Remove the right and left end caps by carefully pulling them off the steel end brackets.

Step 3: Install the Shade

  • Important: To ensure the fabric rolls down evenly, it is critical that the brackets be level.
    Center the Impulse shade over the window to determine the location where the shade brackets will be attached over the window and mark where the screws go with a pencil. Drill a hole at each pencil mark with a ¼” drill bit and install two fully threaded #8 wood screws in the right end bracket and two fully threaded #8 wood screws in the left bracket. If there is no solid material behind the wall board, insert the supplied plastic anchors and then use the supplied screws to mount the shade.
    Do not install the end caps at this time.

Step 4: Adjust the Spring Tnesion

  • The spring tension should be properly set so as to rewind the fabric gently back to the fully rolled up position. Too tightly tensioned may cause damage to the fabric.
    To increase the Spring Tension use a flat head screw driver (not supplied) and turn the tension adjustment screw on the left side of the shade clockwise until the desired tension is reached. Turn the screw counterclockwise to decrease the tension. If there are two shades in the Impulse Platform, you must adjust the tension on each one.

Step 5: Adjust the Position of the Shade

  • Adjust the position, if too high or too low, by using a flat head screwdriver (not supplied) by turning the position adjustment screw on the right side of the shade until the desired position of the hembar is reached. If there are two shades on the Impulse platform, you must adjust the position on each one.

Step 6: Replace the End Caps

Roller Shades can be easily cared for by simply using soapy water or a mild cleaning solution on spots. However try a small area first. Harsh household cleaners or detergents may cause damage to fabric or loss of color. It is our recommendation to dust the rails and fabrics of the shades on a regular basis.
