How to Remove Hunter Douglas Blinds

Save

Hunter Douglas manufactures a wide variety of blinds and window coverings that match just about any home décor. When it comes time for a change, or just a makeover, you can easily remove Hunter Douglas blinds. A mounting bracket holds these blinds in place. Once you have removed the blinds from the bracket, you can then remove the brackets.

Things You'll Need

  • Stepladder
  • Screwdriver
  • Needlenose pliers
  • Wall mud/spackle
  • Putty knife
  • Sandpaper
  • Remove the bottom of the shade from the hold-down brackets, if attached. Bend the end of the hold-down brackets backwards slightly and pull out the bottom of the shade. Unscrew the hold-down brackets from the wall with the screwdriver.

  • Pull on the cord to raise the shade all the way to the top.

  • Grasp the Hunter Douglas blinds firmly on each side. Use a stepladder, if necessary, to reach them. Push the blinds toward the window. While pushing backwards, pull down so the blinds are released from the clips. Set the blinds aside.

  • Use the screwdriver to loosen the screws holding the mounting brackets in place.

  • Pull out the mounting bracket anchors from the window with a pair of needlenose pliers.

  • Sand down the edges of the holes with a piece of sandpaper. Fill in the holes with spackle or wall mud. Allow the patching material time to dry.

  • Sand down the patching material so it is flush with the wall or window edge. Paint over the patch, if desired.
