After losing the original mounts for my Ikea 16986 blinds, I designed these as replacements. I am using these blinds as a projector screen mounted to the ceiling. This is the revision I have been using for over a year without failure (read instructions!)
You may notice that the mounting holes are on the same side as the post. This means you will need to install this side first, as the blinds will prevent you from getting your screwdriver in. Thus,
- Chose a location and mark holes for where you want to mount the brackets.
- Install the bracket with the post first (End 1.stl)
- Mount the blinds onto the post, and while someone holds them for you, mount the remaining bracket (End 2.stl)
