This printed blackout blind eliminates light and gives 100% privacy, allowing you to get a sound night’s sleep or simply to relax completely at leisure. Side control mechanism Can be fitted either inside or outside the window recess Instructions and fittings included Please note: the width stated is the total width of the blind including mechanisms and brackets. When fitting your blind, you must fit the safety device provided with the blind to the wall in order to tie up the pull cord safely out of the way of children and pets. For safety we recommend that you move beds, cots and furniture away from any window fitted with a blind that has a side control mechanism, even with a safety device in place. To prevent the formation of potentially hazardous loops, which could endanger children, this product incorporates a primary breakaway system. These components are designed to come apart when undue force is applied to the blind cords or chains. This breakaway system is easy to reassemble in the event of the cords or chains being pulled too hard, and breaking away accidentally in use.
