These are good shades and fit our needs. Be forwarned: Smaller blinds (~40") have standard 90-degree screws mouting the headrail to the jamb while others (~70") have 30-degree screws which will tear out your drywall if you mount directly; I needed to manufacture an aluminum mounting rod, which required a drill press to create the screw hole template (for angled screws). However, it worked and the blinds are great!

Be aware that shorter blinds have screws that go straight into the top of the window jamb (90 degree) while longer blinds have screws that go in at a 30 degree angle. If you mount the latter directly into the sheetrock at the top of the jamb, it will just tear it out and the blind will fall down. I had to manufacture an aluminum mount using a drill press with recessed/chamfered holes for flat head screws to mount to the sheetrock/studs, and it had to have 30 degree holes for the screws to go into. This piece you will have to manufacture yourself, or hope you get lucky and the mounting hole in the headrail coincides with a stud. The screws they included were not long enough given the shallow angle to reach the wood. However, we did get it to work but manufacturing the aluminum head rail mount piece did take several hours.
why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
