Testing Shade
Pull the shade down.
  • If it stays down, the weight is sufficient.
  • If not, you need to add some more weight.
  • This can be done by adding an additional weight bar
  • If you pull it down and it will not go back up the mounting screws could be to tight.

Push your shade up.

  • If it raises easily…your shade is ready! 
  • If the shade does not stay up, it’s too heavy for the device(s) used.
Add / Remove weight as necessary.
  • This is where an extra fold is useful. You can add another weight bar to the fold.
