Step-by-Step Guide to Removing 25mm Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Step 1: Lower the Blinds Completely

Fully extend the blinds to make handling easier.

Step 2: Release the Blind Slats

Tilt the slats to an open position, providing a clear view of the mounting brackets.

Step 3: Locate the Mounting Brackets

Identify the brackets holding the blinds. Typically, these are at the top of the blinds, either at the ends or along the headrail.

Step 4: Open the Bracket Covers

Using a screwdriver, gently open the bracket covers. Some brackets may have clips that need to be pushed or screws that need to be removed.

Step 5: Detach the Blinds from the Brackets

Carefully lift the headrail out of the brackets. Have a helper hold the blinds steady if they are large or heavy.

Step 6: Remove the Brackets

Unscrew the brackets from the window frame using your screwdriver or drill.

Step 7: Clean Up

Collect all screws and brackets, and store them in a container. Clean the area where the blinds were mounted.
