Installation Instructions
Getting Started
A few simple tools are required:
- Measuring tape
- Power drill, drill bits
- Hex head and/or Phillips driver bit
- Pencil
Additional fasteners other than those sent with your
shade may be required depending on the mounting
surface. Wallboard and plaster require the use of
anchors such as expansion or toggle bolts. Brick, tile
or stone need special plugs and drill bits. Remember
to always pre-drill holes in wood to avoid splitting.

Step 1: Determine Placement of Brackets and Power Source (Solar Panel/Battery Wand)
Make sure that the battery wire will be able to reach the motor and/or solar panel plugs.

Step 2: Bracket Installation
Shades are shipped with the required number of
brackets for proper installation. End brackets
should be located approximately 3” from either end.
Depending on the width of the shade, additional
brackets may be necessary, evenly spaced between the
two end brackets.
3”
Using the Installation Bracket as a template, measure
to the edge of the bracket and mark the hole locations
with a pencil for drilling. When mounting brackets,
make sure they are in line.
Step 3: Install Battery Wand (if transformer, skip to step 4)
Battery Wand - attach the wand clips in the desired
location, with the screws provided.
Press the wand into the clips.
Note: If battery wand only, be sure battery wire will reach
motor plug.
If solar cell recharge, be sure battery wire will reach both
the motor plug and the solar cell plug.

Step 3: Install Solar Panel (if not using solar panel skip to step 4)
Bracket Method
Attach the Solar panel brackets to the window casing with the
screws provided. Make sure that the panel is positioned to get the
maximum amount of sunlight.
Tape Method
Remove the brackets from the end of the solar panel with a phillips head
screwdriver.
Clean the plastic endcaps with rubbing alcohol. When dry, remove the release
liner from one side of the double sided tape pieces provided and adhere them
to the plastic endcaps. Make sure to put the tape on the face (black side) of
the panel.
Clean the window surface with rubbing alcohol. When dry, remove the
release liners and attach the solar panel to the glass, pressing firmly to adhere.
Double sided tape
Step 4: Install Top Rail
Start with the top rail/fabric assembly. The top rail
is the rail with the motor in it. Before mounting the
A
headrail make sure that the receiver wire is out of
the headrail. For optimal performance position the
receiver wire so that it is facing into the room.
B
Position the motor wire so that it comes out the back
side of the shade.
Be sure the motor wire is not pinched by the bracket.
Position the rail with the front lip (A) resting on the
hooks of all the brackets. Push the rail firmly up and toward the window until the groove on the rail snaps into
place, (B) as shown.
Step 5: Attach Power Source - Battery Wand/Transformer/Solar Panel

Transformer
Plug the transformer wire into the motor wire. Secure the wire behind the shade and
along the window casing as required.
Plug the transformer into an electrical outlet.
If the wire is not long enough to reach, optional 48” extension wires are available.
Step 6: Install Bottom Rail
Select the desired channel with the “Channel” key. The right side of the
key will scroll through the channel selections. The left side of the key will
jump to the all funcion. The selected channel will show in the display
window.
Press the “Down” key to lower the shade.
Position the rail with the front lip (A)
resting on the hooks of all the brackets.
Push the rail firmly down and toward the
window until the groove on the rail snaps
into place, (B) as shown.

limits will need to be reset. See step 9 for setting
limits.
The motor does not work
1. Check that the power source and motor are connected properly
2. If using a battery wand - confirm that the batteries
are fresh
3. If using a solar panel - be sure that the panel is
facing the sun
4. If using a solar panel - there may have been a high
draw (operating shade often) with limited sun exposure (multiple cloudy days). If this happens a DC
charger may be purchased to give the rechargeable
batteries in the battery wand a boost. Contact your
dealer for a charger
5. If using a solar panel and the batteries will no longer take a charge, the batteries can be replaced with

Advanced Programming
Replace original remote or add additional remote
1. Remove the shade from the window. Press the “Setting” key on the motor until the shade jogs once. Release
the button immediately after the first jog - this should be not more than 3 seconds.
2. Repeat this step for all shades that will be controlled by a single channel .
3. Select the channel that you want to program using the “Channel” selector key.
4. Press and hold the “Confirm” key until the shade(s) jogs once.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 to program the rest of the channels on a multi-channel remote.
6. To set the All function on the multi-channel remote, activate the setting keys (step 1) on all shades. Select
Channel “AL” and then press confirm.

Shade Removal
To remove a shade, insert a screwdriver between the rail and the bottom back of
the bracket (tab which extends out slightly from each bracket).
Gently pry the screwdriver to release the bracket from the rail. Take care not to
damage the painted finish of the rail.
As you release the brackets, support the rail to keep it from falling.
Insert screwdriver
here and gently pry
Cleaning and Care
The Shade fabric is easy to care for. Regular dusting with a feather duster or vacuum cleaner brush is
recommended. Most stains can be blotted with a damp sponge and mild detergent. Before using anything
stronger than mild detergent and lukewarm water, test an unobtrusive corner of the shade. If you have any
questions, call your dealer for advice.
