The tension for Perfect Fit Roller Blinds can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the “wrap tension”.  Please follow the steps on page five for the Perfect Fit Roller Blinds measuring and fitting instructions found here.

Ensure the bottom bar end caps are positioned in the Perfect Fit frame channel furthest from the window.

Perfect Fit Roller Blinds are operated by tilting the bottom bar back to raise/lower the blind and setting the bar straight to lock.  The end caps compress within the channel to secure the blind at the required level.

Please note if the bottom bar end caps are not sliding within the channel furthest from the glass the blind will not hold.  The image below highlights (red section) the correct channel the bottom bar end caps should slide within.  The bottom bar can then be tilted to raise/lower the blind;

If your spring operated roller blind will no longer retract, follow the steps below to re-tension the spring;

Faber System

  • With the blind installed in the brackets pull the blind down approximately 30cm.
  • Remove the blind from the brackets and roll the blind up by hand.
  • Refit the blind and check for tension.
  • The above steps may need to be repeated several times to achieve the required tension.


  • Remove the blind from the brackets.
  • Insert a screwdriver into the cross-end (spring end) and turn to tension the spring.
  • Ensure the spring locks off before removing the screwdriver.
  • Refit the blind.
  • If additional tension is required, repeat the steps above.

Louvolite System

  • When the blind is pulled down, push the front locking pin in.
  • Gently remove the blind from the brackets and roll back up by hand.
  • Refit the blind in to the brackets noting the correct fitting position as indicated on the end of the blind.
  • Pull the locking pin to the out position being careful not to fully remove the pin.
  • Pull the blind down to check tension.
  • If additional tension is required, repeat the steps above.

Additional tension can be added by following the brief instructions below;

  • Remove the blind form the window and lay face down.
  • At the bottom of the blind, undo the cord from one side of the spring.
  • Pull a small amount of cord through and re-tie to the spring.
  • Refit the blind.

Following the steps above adds additional tension to the spring which in turn tensions the cord to keep the blind in place when raised.  If this does not resolve the issue found please contact our sales team.

Due to the nature of fabric dyes and natural materials an exact match is not always possible.  We do however endeavour to guarantee multiple blinds of the same style and colour are within the same batch.  Wooden Blinds alike due to their natural characteristics can vary in shades.

In the unlikely event your blind does not measure the exact size you requested (if exact measurements were entered) please contact our sales department 0800 093 9635 or email sales@soeasyblinds.co.uk and we will endeavour to rectify any problems as quickly as possible.

Please note that any recess measurements given when ordering will have a set amount deducted.

Regrettably we can not exchange or refund any blinds which prove to be the correct size unless faulty or damaged.

This problem can be quickly rectified by removing all louvres from the headrail and then tilting the hangers 90º to the window using the control chain at the end of the blind.  Rehang the louvres in the open position, the blind will now open and close as required.

This is a common fault and can be quickly rectified.  Simply close the blind fully and tilt the louvres so you can not see out of the window.  Continue to pull the tilt chain to realign the carriers.  You may hear a slight clicking noise when this realignment is performed which is completely normal.
