    Found some roman blinds that I Iike on clearance at spotlight - nice colour, easy care, etc. Happy with that. Only trouble is I can't get the blinds to stay on the brackets which are track brackets that I have wall mounted. Yes, have followed instructions.
    The idea is that the arms of the bracket fit under the outer rim of the heading - which they do but then thewhole thing soon falls down.
    Photos not uploading tonight.
    Is there a better quality, more effective bracket to use? Where can I get it?
    Trying to do this one myself without having to ask the handyman.

    It might be a matter of 'clicking' the bracket into the heading. I would call the manufacturer for advice before proceeding further.

    You were right @Joynz - I had to move the little arm right over and behind the lip to keep it locked and in place. Blinds are now idiot-proof. :)

    In my experience, as soon as you make something idiot proof, they invent a better class of idiot.
