Most blackout blinds and blackout curtains have gaps around the sides, top and bottom, and inevitably light pours in, no matter how good the quality of the blackout fabric. Easyblinds blackout blinds succeed where others fail and successfully block outside light by closing those gaps, it is as simple as that!
I have personally tested these blinds prior to bringing them in from the UK. They are brilliant! We have gone on to sell thousands of these kits to happy customers all over New Zealand and Australia.

Light enough to carry with you in its own handy bag, you can quickly and easily install an effective blackout blind anywhere. This portable pack has velcro self-adhesive pads to stick to your aluminum or wooden frame around your window at home, plus the added bonus of having suction cups so you can take your blind away with you on holidays or whilst staying with Grandparents.

Tip: Please add around 2cm on each side to account for any recess. This also helps block any light that may otherwise enter around the edges of your blackout blind. Also please carefully read the instructions on the frame fasteners as well as the booklet so your blinds attach correctly on the first go!
How it works:
Apply your suction cups to the window glass, or removable Frame Fastener strips to the window frame, or a combination of both. (See photos)
Apply the Fabric Fastener strips to the silver side of your easynight fabric, positioning them to correspond with the attachments you have placed on the window.
Your easynight blackout blind can now be attached and removed quickly and easily - apply and remove daily as required.
This fabric can be cut to size, it does not fray and does not need a hem. If you prefer not to cut the fabric, then it can be used with the excess hanging down or to the sides.
Please read the instructions which come with the blind and accessories prior to using.
Here is some important info to read prior to putting the blinds up:
The window frame must be completely clean and dry. Some cleaning products can leave a residue behind so we recommend rinsing the frame with water after cleaning, and allowing it to dry completely.
It's important to place the strip correctly the first time, as removing and re-positioning weakens the adhesive. I also found placing the velcro pads higher and closer to the edge of the blind than the photograph shows on the instruction booklet made a firmer grip so the blind could not flop over and let light sneak in. For additional protection against peeping light you can use the 3M Command strips (not included) and place these strips in the corners of the windowsill as shown in the photographs.
Please use all the self-adhesive fabric pads / frame fasteners and suction cups evenly to distribute the weight of the blind. When placing the sticky pads on the blinds, make sure this is on the silver backing, press firmly andleave 24 hours so the special fibre can adhere to the blind.
