- building level (level).
Before starting the installation, you must make sure that the cornice will not prevent open.Another important point - that the curtain does not lay on the windowsill, brackets must exceed the length of its projecting portion.It is necessary to take into account the dimensions of the heating pipes, if it passes through the wall at the location of the eaves.
Spending brackets markup by using a tape measure and level, pay attention to the distance of the edges of the window opening.It should be the same, except in the case where the installation of the cornice is made along the entire wall.
mounting bracket usually a wooden or plastic eaves by one screws and dowels, and metal - three.

Rings rod dress in advance.Fixation rod wires so that each side of the bracket (before tip) was one ring.It is much more convenient to first put the hooks on the curtain, and only then attach it to the rings.

During installation rail cornice over the baymarking the opening with a tape more difficult.All you need to carefully vymeryat.Therefore, in order to determine the location of the fasteners is better to use leveled.
Besides the extreme points of the location of the rail should be noted and the location of the staples.To do so, mark at equal intervals (about 25 cm) throughout its length.In the marked locations on the need to drill a hole, and then, using the screws included in the kit, carefully screw the bracket.
