3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but there's a problem, 28 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: EASYFIT SCALLOPED EDGE ROLLER BLINDS * SELECT YOUR SIZE & COLOUR * THIS SCALLOP BLIND IS AVAILABLE IN 18 COLOURS * PEACH 180
This is a very nice looking blind, which for the money, is excellent value - that is, as long as it stays up! There is one small flaw with the design in that the bracket at the pulley end is made of plastic that is not thick enough and is therefore a bit flimsy. The upshot of this design fault is that if you want to install it on the outside of the window recess, there is insufficient tension to hold the blind in place when the blind is drawn - i.e. it falls off. This may not be a problem if fitting inside the recess, but it is supposed to work both ways. The only solution is too glue the support bracket at the pulley end to the blind end-fitting [don't glue both ends]: for this you will need either a plastic cement glue or araldite [or similar product], as superglue doesn't work. Update: this kind of worked, but the pulley-end bracket just snapped off! My research suggests this is not an uncommon fault on many blinds (if not all), so no further reduction in my rating. But, I would advise, unless fitting into a recess, that you invest in a 25mm metal bracket repair kit from the outset [cost about £7] - this would still represent good value overall.
