Clean hands in preparation for working with the natural shade fabric.
Use a laser level to confirm Rollershade brackets have been installed level to 1/16" tolerance. Level brackets utilizing the idler bracket adjustment if it's available or use your preferred bracket shimming technique.
Unroll the shade beyond its lower limit to expose the aluminum motor tube. The natural shade fabric may become wrinkled or get twisted during the shipping process and this step ensures extra slack is removed prior to setting final limits.
If motorized, raise the shade until it is 3/4"-1" off the window sill to allow for the natural shade to relax and lengthen over time with climatic conditions.
Set the lower limit.
Raise the rollershade from its lower limit, making sure the hem bar rolls up even and level. If shade rises evenly without excessive telescoping, then proceed to set the upper limit (if motorized). If at any point the hem bar comes out of alignment, move to Step 6.
If the shade is still not operating level, you will need to gently manipulate the shade fabric by hand. Roll the hem bar underneath towards the window and then gently tug and apply light pressure until the fabric is square.
Caution: be careful to not apply too much pressure and damage the fabric.
Raise the shade from its bottom limit and test it once again. If at any point the hem bar comes out of level, stop the shade and move to step 8.
Lower the shade beyond its lower limit to expose the aluminum motor tube. Place a thick tape shim using Gaffers tape on the same side of the motor tube where the hem bar is at its lowest. Test the shade again and adjust the thickness of the tape shim until the shades hem bar raises to its upper limit evenly.
After the above steps, the shade should be square and raise evenly without excessive telescoping. Although some telescoping may still be present, it should relax with continued use once natural materials adjust and settle into their new home environment. Occasionally shades may need to be redressed and if motorized, have the limits reset.
